APO releases new dual entry bindings

Comments by Kelli Lynn Hargrove/

October 15, 2013 – After three years of R&D, APO is excited to announce the release of the new, improved and patented Dual snowboard binding. Snowboarders now have the ability to seamlessly transition from lift to slope without the need to sit down.  This new generation is even easier to use, with a feather light feel, bulletproof construction and an unmatched level of tool-less personal settings that make these the most advanced bindings on the market.

“This will change snowboarding forever,” stated APO founder Regis Rolland. “No longer does a rider need to sit down after each lift. The new APO Dual binding is a natural evolution of the sport making it more appealing for all levels of riders.”

In 2003, APO’s founder Regis Rolland believed he could make a snowboard binding much faster and easier to use, one that all riders would enjoy using and could perform at the highest levels.  This idea led him to develop the Dual, a binding that allows riders to strap in conventionally, or use a quick rear entry method eliminating the annoyance of sitting down to strap in. In 2006, double entry bindings were first released and became a hit on the snowboarding market. Now the ultimate improvement has arrived and riders still no longer need to sit down to strap in!

New for this new Generation:

§  Ultra lightweight aluminum construction

§  Auto lock system

§  Easy entry with a giant highback rear opening

§  Fully adjustable forward lean, straps, and baseplates with no need for tools

§  Rockered baseplates which allow the board to flex naturally, reducing the impact of bindings on its topsheet and giving the rider unmatched comfort

§  NEW universal adaptable disc: 4X4, 3D and rail system
