Most Versatile Binding
Now Pilot

See all pictures

While Now Pilot’s are extremely versatile bindings capable of charging steep backcountry lines, they are also equally as capable of shredding fun park laps. They land themselves in our freestyle category because of Now’s innovative Skate Tech feature. Skate Tech uses a hinge in the centre of the binding which allows a subtle pivot and creates increased board feel, efficiency, and a fun surfy ride.

With the option to choose hard or medium bushings, these bindings can be equally suitable for hitting the XL jump line all day long, or top to bottom rail lines where creativity and flow are at their peak. Their Flexhinge 2.0 highback gives you the support you need to lean into grinding edges or ease into a surfing turn.

There’s just a nice transference of control from weight to edge, making the board nicely responsive to your movements.
