You don't need to go all aggro on nature to get aggro on the mountain. The Gnu Agro Men's Snowboard Binding uses renewable bio-polymers made from non-food stock vegetation in the highback to reduce waste and harmful materials. However, the Agro is much more than a nod to the eco-hippies.
The Agro starts with Gnu's lightweight FT-2 aluminum baseplate. The hyper-cored aluminum baseplate is stiff, responsive, and extremely lightweight. The cored, ergonomic FT-3 Asym Highback is matched perfectly with the baseplate's flex, which Gnu rates a 7 on its 1 to 10 scale. The triple-damping shock-absorption system that's built into the baseplate takes the edge off big drops and flat landings. Gnu's Comprex toe and ankle straps feature a large area to spread shock and absorb binding pressure. Gnu also added its Micro Buckles, which allow you to quickly adjust strap tension.
As with all of Gnu's bindings, the Agro is equipped with the Easy Rider Speed Entry Binding System. The highback reclines for quick entry and exit, so you only need to adjust the straps once and then you're good to go all season. If, for some reason, you do need to make some minor adjustments, it also has a micro-adjustment buckle for on-the-fly tweaks. The auto-open lever makes entry and exit even easier by opening automatically once the highback is lowered. Finally, the binding has a pressure relief button that reduces strap tension quickly on the fly for instant comfort with no hassle.
