Combining stunning fit and performance at a price that embarrasses the competition, the January is the perfect choice for any rider looking for a great all terrain binding for taking on the whole mountain. The January's jam packed spec and high quality construction ensure that it delivers totally stunning performance which truly does belie its competitive price. Baseplate: Glass Nylon Baseplate
The glass fill in our base trays and highbacks range from 8% to 24% depending on the model. Glass increases the stiffness of the binding and the general rule of thumb is that the less glass fill, the softer the binding will be.
Highback: Glass Filled Nylon with Tool Free Forward Lean
Higher medial side follows leg angles. Pre-rotated 10 degrees laterally, 15mm higher than the original Flex Hinge highback. Lateral hook for added support. Dampens chatter and eliminates calf bite. Flex Rating: 5
100% Re-Grind Free
Fix is the only binding company that can claim to be 100% regrind free. What is regrind? Regrind is the excess waste from the injection moulding process that gets ground up and injected back into your products. A little bit is ok, but it's very hard to control exactly how much regrind the suppliers are putting back into your bindings. Fix control this in two ways, (1) they control their own production including injection moulding, and (2) they take all of the production waste and repurpose it to make your binding box, which you can reuse however you see fit. Store your wax kit, carry your beers to the beach in the summer, or storage for your snowboard video collection.
Ankle Straps: Memory Gel Ankle Strap with Hardware Free Ladders
So soft, so comfortable. Fix's ankle straps feature a memory gel that conforms to your boot like ooze eliminating pressure points while preventing damage to the straps themselves.
Toe Straps: 3D Minimal
Buckles: Cast Metal Dual Spring
Cast aluminium buckles drastically reduce the weight of Fix bindings. It's just another step in making Fix bindings even more refined year after year.
Dampening: EVA Footbed/Urethane Dampening Pad
The Fix EVA padding is not too soft that it packs out, and not too firm that it causes foot and leg fatigue when riding after a long day. The Urethane Dampening Pad Dampens vibrations, prevent board breakage, and make for a silky smooth.
