Brand new for this season, the Gnu Women's B Forward Snowboard Binding is a stiffer, more aggressive addition to the Gnu women's bindings lineup, designed for hard charging ladies who demand uncompromising support and response for shredding the steepest and deepest terrain. The FT 2 baseplate is made with aerospace aluminum for an ultralight feel that's responsive enough to handle high consequence terrain, and the stiff FT 3 highback has an asymmetrical design for an ergonomic fit that maximizes response so there's no delay when you have to make critical moves. The EVA foam footbed cushions harsh drops and absorbs vibrations for a smooth ride and softer landings. The cushy Asym ankle strap provides more support on the lateral side where you need it for holding carves, and it allows more flexibility on the medial side for fluid turns. The Thin Fit toe strap is cored out so that it conforms to the shape of your foot for a secure, yet pressure point free fit. As with all of Gnu's bindings, the B Forward is equipped with the Easy Rider Speed Entry Binding System. The highback reclines for quick entry and exit, so you only need to adjust the straps once and then you're good to go all season. If, for some reason, you do need to make some minor adjustments, it also has a micro adjustment buckle for on the fly tweaks. The auto open lever makes entry and exit even easier by opening automatically once the highback is lowered. Finally, the binding has a pressure relief button that reduces strap tension quickly on the fly for instant comfort with no hassle.
