Utilising the 2.0 Skate Tech baseplate, the Brigade ups the ante for those freestyle riders that are looking for the perfect balance of park mobility and all terrain response. With its upgraded SIEVA straps and wider fit, it not only delivers great performance, but it also delivers class leading comfort.
Baseplate: Skate Tech Hanger 2.0 30% Fibreglass
What is SkateTech? Inspired by how easily and efficiently a skateboard turns, major components of Now's system mimic both the function and description of the skateboard trucks. The hanger powerfully transfers energy input from the straps to the bushings and onto the edges of your board. The kingpin acts as the fulcrum magnifying this energy through leverage. Traditional bindings diminish energy transfer by the flexing and bending of their baseplate, forcing you to crank your straps down harder, ride with more forward lean, or run taller and stiffer high backs. This all leads to more foot fatigue and pain. Now bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right onto the boards and edges. They simply transfer more power to the board with less work meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable, longer.
Bushings: Medium (45 Shore)
Dual Injection, quick snap connection to hanger. Main contact point to board, True dampening system. Applies energy while diffusing board chatter.
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.
Ankle Straps: ASYM SIEVA
The concept behind the new ASYM SIEVA strap was to combine the design aspects of the original SIEVA strap and incorporate the benefits aspect of the FLIPIt straps. Using the same manufacturing methods as the SIEVA strap, Now have added a TPU reinforcement on the lateral side for extra support. The ASYM SIEVA strap can be used like the regular FLIPIt straps - simply switch your ankle straps foot and change your support setting.
Toe Straps: 3D Minimal
Buckles 2.0 have been redesigned with stronger levers and updated springs. These new buckles can take more abuse than ever and offers durability and peace of mind.
Dampening: EVA Footbed
This heavily cushioned pad isolates the foot from fatigue inducing vibrations meaning that not only is it more comfortable but you can ride for longer.
