The Nitro Men's Phantom Snowboard Binding was built for hard charging riders who demand uncompromising support, response, and durability when they're seeking out the gnarliest lines on the mountain. It starts with the Asym X Beam highback, which is cored out in strategic areas to reduce weight without sacrificing stiffness or support. The Machine's lightweight Air 2. 0 chassis utilizes Nitro's Airbag system to take the edge off flat landings and absorb vibration to reduce fatigue. It also has a canted footbed that helps align your legs in a more natural position for greater comfort and less fatigue. The profiled, ergo cut ankle straps are asymmetrical to provide medial flex while adding lateral support for comfort and enhanced edge power. The toe strap is a convertible model that can be worn over the toe or in front of the toe to pull your boot back into the binding's heelcup. Both straps are equipped with flex windows that give the strap a comfortable, natural flex and conform to the shape of the boot. The forged aluminum buckles work with the composite Speedwheel for years of smooth, slip free use, and Easy Entry Buckle Tech keeps the straps out of your way when you're stepping into your binding. Finally, Board Saver Technology reduces stress fractures in your snowboard where the binding is attached, meaning this durable binding also helps you board last longer too.
