Like finding the right life partner on Tinder, choosing a proper pair of bindings can be a time consuming process. They may look hot, say the perfect thing and sparkle on your iPhone screen, but in person they’re hardly what you expected. Some are soft and flimsy, while others are uncomfortable and mean and leave you with at least a year of sour situations before you ditch ‘em. Not these sexy bindings. No, we found these beauts in person and put them through some sketchy scenes just to see how they would respond. These are the best snowboard bindings of 2015.
The Platinum Picks is our guide to the newest and most interesting products and best snowboard bindings of the season. It is not a product test, rather a look around the industry to see who is pushing design, materials, fashion and technology.
