The 2022 Jones Meteorite is is designed for the all-mountain rider that wants a stable and comfortable binding with a tweak-able medium soft flex. The Meteorite delivers precision response thanks to SKATETECH technology that transfers your energy directly to your edges. The Meteorite’s Dynamic Flex highback is stiff in the center for solid support and softer on the sides for friendly maneuverability. The Meteorite can be set up in Surf mode or Freeride mode by switching bushing and swapping the Flip-It ankle straps. Surf mode offers maximum tweak-ability, Freeride mode offers maximum response. To keep your boots locked in with no strap bite, the Meteorite features our stitched Flip-It Mid-Wide Straps that have a 3D-injected core for solid support and a foam wrap for even pressure distribution and lateral flexibility.
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.
