Skatetech

COMPONENTS

1. Hanger

Hanger pivots on the Kingpin like a lever allowing lightning fast edge-to-edge energy transfer. True baseless design that delivers the most even board flex of any binding on the market.

2. Kingpin

The Kingpin is the fulcrum that the Hanger pivots on. Design magnifies energy transfer and enhances board response through leverage.

3. Post

The Post attaches the hanger to the kingpin and is the connection between binding and board.

4. Bushings

Bushings are the primary binding contact point and offer customizable response and dampening (available in soft, medium and hard).

skate-tech-dark

Inspired by how easily and efficiently a skateboard turns; major components of our system mimic both the function and description of skateboard trucks. The ‘Hanger’ powerfully transfers energy input from the straps to the bushings and onto the edges of your board. The Kingpin acts as a fulcrum, magnifying this energy through leverage. Learn more

Skatetech

Unmatched turn power

Power is transmitted directly to the edge.

When you make a hard heel or toe turn the force you place on your straps and highback is transferred directly to your edge through the hanger, kingpin and post. By using the mechanical advantage of this pivot and lever system SkateTech binding are the most responsive bindings in the world. Once on edge, you are locked in.

Traditional binding

No comparison to traditional bindings

Power is transmitted through the center disk.

When you make a hard heel or toe turn on traditional bindings the pressure you place on your straps goes into the fixed center disk and forces the binding baseplate to bend before power is delivered to the edges. Energy is concentrated at the center of the board with traditional rigid baseplates which decreases potential turn power compared to SkateTech bindings.

Sieva strap

TOP-TIER COMFORT, DURABILITY AND IS LIGHTWEIGHT.

The word SIEVA means single-injected EVA. The body of the strap is made entirely with one-part EVA injection, eliminating any stitching and reducing gluing to less than 1% of the strap area. A nylon webbing that is strong, durable and flexible is inserted
in the body of the strap at one end and sealed by a micro-injected logo. After turning heads with our Hyperfuse, we decided to push the boundary of strap manufacturing and overall design. This SIEVA strap is about durability, comfort and reducing weight.


*Available on the PRO LINE, IPO, VETTA, and NXGEN

Asym Sieva strap

EXCEPTIONAL COMFORT & RESPONSE & HOLDS ITS SHAPE.

The concept behind the new ASYM SIEVA strap was to combined the design aspect  of our original SIEVA straps and incorporate the benefits of our FLIPIT straps. By using the same manufacturing methods as our SIEVA strap, we’ve added a TPU reinforcement on the lateral side for extra support. The ASYM SIEVA strap can be used like our regular FLIPIT straps—simply switch your ankle straps to the other foot and change your support setting.


*Available on the BRIGADE, BRIGADA and CONDA

Hyperfuse ii strap

TOP-OF-THE-LINE FUNCTIONALITY AND EVA CONSTRUCTION.

The HYPERFUSE II strap is an evolution and a design refinement over our original HYPERFUSE strap. Inspired by shoe construction, the HYPERFUSE II is a stitchless, spineless strap. Its inner guts are constructed with nylon webbing that is strong, durable and flexible, and sandwiched between two layers of EVA. The end product is a comfortable and lightweight binding strap that will not only handle the elements, but the test of time.

Hybrid flipit strap

THE OG—OUR VERY OWN STITCHLESS AND SEAMLESS STRAP.

An additional layer of reinforcement is applied to the bottom of the EVA cover, which gives you support, durability and comfort. The HYBRID FLIPIT strap can also be use like our regular FLIPIT straps—simply switch
out your ankle straps to the other foot and change your support setting.

Flipit technology

rethink your ride

Flipit technology allows you to interchange your ankle straps.

Flipit technology allows you to interchange your ankle straps between your left and right binding to create a customized riding experience. Ride with your ankle straps in the “upward” position for added lateral support and board response or flip it into the “downward” position for solid heel support and more tweaking ability.
