Bon Hiver Freebase Binding System

Once and done.
Some new binding tech is set to hit this Winter. Bon Hiver might be a new name to most, but they have spent a good deal of time developing what soon could be the quickest binding system on the mountain. Their Freebase system allows you to strap-in at the base of the mountain once for the entire day and never have to worry about undoing any of your hard work getting in. The 13 Series and 18 Series use magnets to pull the binding and board plate together, while the 11 Series requires some simple manual effort to achieve alignment. Available for pre-order, these are looking to be an interesting alternative to strapping in!

Mr. Jago for Endeavor Snowboard Design

Live Series Boards & Bindings
We gave you a first look at Endeavor Snowboard Design’s 2011 lineup the other day, now we have a better look at the Live Series, done up by Bristol artist Mr. Jago. The Live Series has always been a show piece for Endeavor. In keeping with this style, they chose to use the Live as Mr. Jago’s canvas for 2011. Having worked with such brands as Addict and Rossignol, and having exhibited his work around the world, it’s clear that his collaboration with Endeavor is a great match. Going to his studio in Bristol, Endeavor selected nine pieces of work from Mr. Jago’s portfolio and photographed them to be used as the graphics for this series of boards and also as the inaugural graphics for the forthcoming Live Series binding.

Endeavor Snowboard Design 2011 Preview

Since 2002
One of the brands that I am most interested in seeing year after year is Vancouver Canada’s own Endeavor Snowboard Design. Coming into their 8th season in 2011 and looking to drop an impressive catalog of both hardware and softwear products, Endeavor is still hitting strong with their attention to detail and collaborations with some of the world’s best artists. Mr. Jago, Hydro74, Vince Chan and Derek Stenning are only a handful of the artists that have done work with Endeavor for 2011. New for next season are two models of bindings to round it all out and complete your kit. Keep your eyes out for these!

Burton CO2 Binding Design

Office chair inspiration
FastCompany had a great article on the story behind the Burton CO2 binding’s design, and how Burton designers drew inspiration from something as common as an office chair to fabricate them. But not just any office chair, those with a fine eye could spot cues of a Herman Miller Aeron chair, a state of the art piece of office furniture that integrates ergonomics and space age materials into one fine sitting experience that is second to none. Those who have spent hours in a chair would agree. The end product is a lighter and stronger binding that looks just as good. Read more about it at FastCompany, and check out the bindings at Burton
