Each year snowboard bindings seem to get better and better and this year was no exception with the introduction of K2′s Auto Binding. Strapping in for a nice long ride down the mountain is great, but can sometimes be a struggle when you have to mess around in below-freezing temperatures with two straps per binding. You could invest your money into step-in style bindings, but if you do, you may sacrifice some performance features that come with traditional style snowboard bindings.
Instead why not check out the new binding design from K2? This new design allows you to preset the sizing on the bottom strap of your binding and while you are ratcheting the top strap of your binding in, you can simultaneously tighten the bottom. This reduces strap-in time, resulting in lower frustration levels and more runs! We can try to explain it you, but we recommend you check out the video below that provides visual demonstration of this great new binding! I apologize, but it does not contain any sound.
