Salomon Hologram Snowboard Binding – 2017

MSRP: $289.95

Bode Merrill is a boss. It goes without saying, and can be backed up by any number of video parts or magazine covers. From slaying the street, to hammering heli lines in AK, the Bode man has dominated all realms of snowboarding. The Salomon Hologram is Bode’s binding of choice and reflects the same diversity and level of performance that has characterized his career. A medium flex, freestyle specific binding, the Hologram is packed with enough tech and style for any rider, beginner or pro. Sporting Salomon’s Shadow Fit technology, the Kevlar Quickwire heelcup is the only flexible heelcup in the industry, providing ultimate boot fit and support, while simultaneously improving transmission of power and movement.

While this is a flip from the traditional thinking of “stiffer means more responsive,” the Shadow Fit heelcup not only improves upon binding responsiveness, but also decreases overall binding weight. The 3D Asym Supreme Ankle Strap has an asymmetrical shape to increase support on the outside of the foot, while increasing tweakability on the inside. Not to mention eliminating pressure points all together. Finally the Hologram’s specially designed highback is Salomon’s most ergonomically efficient design, improving comfort while maintaining support and responsiveness throughout the binding. The Hologram is for the rider that pushes boundaries regardless of terrain.
