If there’s a single major downside to snowboarding, it’s probably the frustration of fiddling with bindings between runs. However, the convenience of most step-in binding is undone by their lack of support and security. CLEW, however, might have found the perfect middle ground in their 20 Bindings.
The clever design actually hybridizes a step-on system with a more traditional strap-in binding. Simply attach the base to your board via your board’s standard binding screws, step into the highback piece with your existing soft boots — courtesy of the handy universal strap system — and you’re ready to hit the slopes. Then, once you’re at the bottom of a run, all you have to do is pull the strap at the top of the highback and step right out. Available in black or white, both with red accents, the best-of-both-worlds CLEW 20 Binding is on preorder now for $295.
