Take a skate influenced feel to the park and streets with the extensive Air Dampening and freestyle focused flex of the Nitro Men's Zero Snowboard Binding. This skate like binding features Nitro's Air Dampening along the heel to dissipate heavy impacts from flat landings in the park and choppy snow conditions. The Asym Zero highback provides an optimal balance between freestyle mobility and landing stability on bigger kickers. Reducing the dead spot inherent to traditional mounting discs, the 2x4 Mini Disc allows you to maximize the true flex of your board when you're buttering and pressing. This disc also locks into place, keeping your preferred stance intact when you switch between different boards. The 3 Percent Canted footbed maximizes leverage and control over the tip and tail, which is especially useful if you're riding on a rocker board. Canting also anatomically aligns your stance for less pressure on your knees, allowing you to ride longer without the usual fatigue and soreness. Cradling your upper boot and ankle, the Slim Cut ankle strap is 3D formed to reduce pressure points. It's also a bit smaller than Nitro's freeride offerings for extra mobility in the park. The B. E. S. T. convertible toe strap can be rocked over the tip for the utmost in response or over the top, should you prefer a more traditional feel. Another cool feature with the toe strap is its stainless steel cable connector that reinforces the toe ladder, preventing breakage when you accidentally step on it in frigid temperatures.
