K2 Lien FS Snowboard Binding – 2017

MSRP: $249.95

The K2 Lien FS binding is the perfect binding for riders who prefer a surf-like feel when charging the entire mountain. Featuring the Tweakback Opti™ highback and Tripod™ system, the Lien FS remains soft and playful for a freestyle-focused ride, while never sacrificing support or board feel. The Tripod™ system works by matching three rubber pods with our feet’s three natural contact points. Two pods under the balls of the feet and a third under the heel focus power distribution directly to the edge of the board for improved board response and handling.

Having minimal board to binding contact also increases board feel and natural flex, making for an all around smoother and more fluid ride. The Tweakback Opti™ is the brand new refined version of the original Tweakback, and is 15% lighter than the previous generations. Made of 100% urethane, it provides ample heelside support while still maximizing flex and weight reduction. All of the flex and support with none of the weight, you might just forget these things are even on your feet.
