The 2022 Jones Apollo binding is designed for the expert freerider who demands unmatched edge control, response and comfort. What sets the Apollo apart is the Flax Carbon highback that features a wide upper section that locks in your boot top on toe side turns. Matching the ultra responsive highback with SKATETECH technology offers a binding that will react to your every muscle twitch with lightning fast accuracy.
The 2022 Jones Apollo can be set up in Surf mode or Freeride mode by switching bushings and swapping the Flip-It ankle straps. Surf mode offers maximum tweak-ability, Freeride mode offers maximum response. New for 21/22, the Apollo features our new Hanger 3.0 and Power Spine Ankle Straps. The Hanger 3.0 is wider for high volume boots and has an expanded bushing footprint for even better energy transfer. The wide bottom section of the Power Spine Strap is softer for enhanced comfort and the center spine is stiffer for ultimate response.
Featuring SKATETECH The components of the SKATETECH design mimic the function of a skateboard truck. The “Hanger” acts as a lever that transfers energy input from the straps to the “Bushings” and onto the board edges. The “Kingpin” acts as the fulcrum for the “Hanger” and magnifies the energy transfer through leverage. Traditional bindings lose energy when the baseplate flexes and bends unevenly. The energy loss forces you to crank your straps tighter and ride with more forward lean to gain the same control. Uneven pressure and tight straps lead to more foot fatigue and pain. By evenly pivoting over the “Post”, the middle of your board flexes more uniformly and your energy inputs are focused directly on your edge. Your feet stay more relaxed and more comfortable because the bindings transfer power to the board with less work
Freeride vs. Surf Mode Jones bindings offer customizable dampening and response by switching between Surf Mode and Freeride Mode. Surf Mode lets you tweak harder, while Freeride Mode keeps you locked in for maximum response. Switch modes by changing the bushings from soft (Surf Mode) to hard (Freeride Mode) and adjusting the Flip-It ankle straps. The Flip-It strap allows you to interchange the ankle straps between the left and right binding to create custom response. Ride with the ankle straps in Freeride mode for more lateral support and board response or flip the straps into Surf Mode for solid heel support, but more ankle flexibility for getting loose.
Asymmetrical Flax/Carbon Wide Back: Flax/Carbon composite highback with extended width upper section for improved toe-side turn response. Asymmetrical shape follows your leg angles. The highback flex rating is a 9/10 for this binding.
3D Flex Fit Toe Straps: Low profile and grippy 3D Flex Fit toe straps that dynamically stretch to fit any shape boot. The spider web inspired design is comfortable, durable and responsive.
Hanger 3.0 (new for 2022): New binding hanger design featuring a wider bushing footprint that’s closer to the edges for enhanced board connection and faster energy transfer. The Hanger 3.0 is also lighter weight and has a lower inner lateral wall for better ankle mobility and high volume boot fit.
Intelligent Straps (new for 2022): New Hinge Connectors keep your ankle strap out of the way when you step in to strap in, and new Curved Ladders make it easy to line up the buckle and quickly ratchet down.
Power Spine Ankle Straps (new for 2022): New two-part molded ankle strap with a wider bottom section for flexible comfort and a stiffer center spine for unmatched response. Flip-it Strap compatible (Freeride mode + Surf Mode)
4X4, 2x4, EST/Channel Disk: All Jones bindings include a mounting disc compatible with traditional 4x4 inserts, 2x4, and the EST/Channel mounting system
Response Tri-Foam Foot Pillow: Premium full length foam footbed made with three different densities of EVA foam. The heel + toe are soft for max comfort, the center is mid-stiff for precise response and the bottom of the footbed is stiff for solid support.
