Inspired by how easily and efficiently a skateboard turns; major components of our system mimic both the function and description of 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 a 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 highbacks. This all leads to more foot fatigue and pain. NOW bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right onto the board’s edges. They simply transfer more power to the board with less work, meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable, longer.

Hyperfuse II Straps
The HYPERFUSE II strap is an evolution and a design refinement over our original HYPERFUSE strap. Inspired by shoe construction, the HYPERFUSE II is a stitchless, spineless strap. Its inner guts are constructed with nylon webbing that is strong, durable and flexible, and sandwiched between two layers of EVA. The end product is a comfortable and lightweight binding strap that will not only handle the elements, but the test of time.
3D Toe Straps EVA Combo
Our top-of-the-line 3D Toe Strap EVA combo, which creates a better overall boot-to-binding fit, and enhancing the overall grip that the EVA provides.
Our PA66-C buckles are made with the same high-grade composite Carbon Fiber blend found in our-O-DRIVE hanger. This material is extremely light and strong reducing the overall buckle weight by 20%.

ABOUT NOW SNOWBOARDS
NOW is focused on creating innovative, relevant technologies for today's snowboarders. We are a rider-owned company, dedicated to improving snowboarding through our products and our beliefs.
Founded in 2010 by former professional and member of the notorious Wildcats crew, JF Pelchat realized that the mechanics and function of the binding hadn’t change since their introduction. Poise by wanting to improve the bindings function, he then proceed to his garage and design a new binding concept that forever change the landscape of binding technology. For NOW, it’s always been about going against the grain by changing the blueprint of binding design, and creating a product that will take riders on a pedal-to-the-metal journey. By breaking down snowboarding’s past conventional binding designs and charging a new path, NOW has created an unconventional product—an unparalleled and revolutionary binding lineup that just keeps on giving. What you can expect from NOW bindings is an effortless and responsive ride, a reduction in foot fatigue, balls-to-the-wall performance, customization, and overall ride comfort.
