Materials

Bindings have advanced more in recent years than either boots or boards, and these improvements have added new enjoyment into the sport for many long time participants. Along with these improvements have come many misconceptions. First off, t is no magic material for constructing the perfect binding. That being said, lets review some of those materials that are commonly used. Aluminum Alloy: Portions of many bindings are made from aluminum, and the notion exists, "aluminum is more substantial than plastic. It will last longer, and weigh less". This can be very misleading. 1.) Aluminum is a horrible base (and disk) material for snowboard bindings. A snowboard must flex evenly to perform well. Any bindings restrict this even flex a bit, as they present two hard, static plates which must be screwed firmly to the board. Aluminum is an extremely rigid material. This leads to the board flexing, and the bindings remaining rigid. At best this leads to a "kinked" flex pattern to the board. At worst it leads to board damage or binding damage. Remember, if the board flexes hard enough (landing jumps, wipeouts, etc.) and the bindings remain rigid, something must give. In short, stay away from aluminum as a binding base material (most, but not all manufacturers do). 2.) As a material for the heel cup (the portion of the binding that connects the base to the highback) aluminum is great! It adds stiffness w it useful for edging control, and provides a surface which remains cold and slippery for easy boot access. 3.) As a ratchet material aluminum is a preference choice, but not a clear winner over plastic, as advertised. Aluminum is stiff, precise, and the ratchet teeth don't wear as quickly as plastic. On the other hand, aluminum ices up quicker than plastic, and the mechanisms tend to develop mechanical slop with extended use. Plastic: It must be noted that to this point we have used the term plastic as though all plastics are one product. We have done so to simplify the above discussion of aluminum, but this is far from the truth. Plastic, Nylon, Polycarbonate, Thermoplastic, Glass injected plastic, Carbon Fiber, etc. are all plastics that are used in snowboard bindings. The notion that plastic is cheap or inferior (the "plastic toy" concept) is absolutely wrong in many cases. 1.) Most high end bindings today use some form of plastic base. This is an excellent base (and disk) choice, as it will flex and twist naturally to match the board's flexible nature. This improves performance,...
