Now bindings are not just another strap binding. They don't operate in the conventional way as they feature 'Skate Tech'. They take their inspiration from how a skateboard turns, and have been designed in such a way that the components mimic the function of the components found in your favourite skateboard trucks.
Traditional bindings leak energy transfer as the baseplate flexes and bends underfoot which in turn forces you to tighten your straps down harder, crank on the forward lean, or run a stiffer highbacked binding. Needless to say, this can all lead to more foot fatigue and pain.
Thanks to the 'Skate Tech', the underfoot “Hanger” powerfully transfers energy input from the binding straps to the bushings and then onto the edges of your board. The Kingpin acts as the fulcrum*, magnifying this energy through leverage.
In simple terms, they transfer more power to the board with less work, meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable for longer.
*fulcrum - the point against which a lever is placed to get a purchase, or on which it turns or is supported

We offer FREE Standard delivery on all orders (£50 and over), and then the option to upgrade to Express Delivery (1-2 Days) if required.
For shipping we are currently using Parcelforce & Royal Mail and they have both changed their delivery procedure in relation to signing for and receiving items in the UK (please see below)
"In order to protect both our people and customers as much as possible, we will not be handing over our hand-held devices to customers to capture electronic signatures. Our drivers will instead log the first and last name of the person accepting the item, then put 'XP1' in the signature field, and we will record the geolocation of the delivery. This will apply to all deliveries that normally require a signature.
If recipients are unable to come to the door or are self-isolating, we will post a customer contact card in the normal way, advising of other ways the recipient can arrange to get their item. For example, by getting a friend or family member (who is not resident with someone who is self-isolating) to collect the parcel from their local Parcelforce depot or Post Office branch, as specified on the card. They will need to bring along the card we left and a form of ID in the name of the person the item is addressed to. Examples of suitable ID are specified on the card."
All items ordered online with us here at The Snowboard Shop are dispatched within 24 hours (except for orders placed on a Saturday which will be dispatched on the Monday).
Delivery options are as follows to the UK Mainland:
We use Royal Mail or a Courier (Parcelforce) depending on which delivery option you choose:
We do charge slightly more for deliveries including a Snowboard due to the costs of shipping parcels of this size.
For all purchases totalling over £50 standard delivery is FREE and you'll be given the option to upgrade to Express if you'd rather when you checkout.
Items will be sent via the Royal Mail on a 'Signed For' service (Standard Delivery). Express deliveries will be sent through Parcelforce. Once the item(s) have been dispatched you will receive a tracking number through Royal Mail or Parcelforce.
We can still ship to you if you UK Non-Mainland (i.e. Northern Ireland). Please call us or email us if the shipping costs are not clear. (Northern Ireland and UK Highlands & Islands have their own shipping drop-down when you check out).
We are currently shipping orders to the majority of the World. If you are not based in the UK but have seen an item(s) on our website that you'd like to purchase then simply add them to your cart and select your country when you checkout. If your country doesn't appear on the drop-down list please contact us and we can get a tailor made quote over to you.
Brexit update - Shipments from the UK to EU countries will now attract VAT charges and potentially duties & customs fees payable upon entering the EU. These fees are payable by the recipient.
We use a combination of UPS and Parcelforce for International shipping.
