Description

The start of a new era.

When JF Pelchat and the guys at Now set out to create their flagship model, the IPO Snowboard Binding, they incorporated fairly simple but totally new ideas aimed at improving the riding experience. Now that their vision has come to fruition, prepare to change the way you think about bindings. The Hanger baseplate has a hinge, inspired by the dynamics of a skateboard truck, that acts as a fulcrum to quickly and efficiently transfer energy from edge to edge. The Flushcup highback sits above the heelcup so that the back of your boot is flush with both the highback and the heelcup, which not only improves response, but also gives you the option of riding highback-less for the ultimate surfy feeling.

  • Asym highback is pre-rotated five degrees to mimic natural leg position, and the Flex hinge eliminates calf bite and follows the contour of any boot
  • Hanger baseplate has Kingpin hinge so the binding flexes with the board, improving energy transfer from edge-to-edge and reducing foot pain and fatigue
  • Flushcup heelcup is stacked evenly with the highback, eliminating dead space and increasing response, and also gives you the option of riding with no highbacks
  • Bushings on the bottom of the binding dampen vibrations; can be swapped out depending on your preferences and conditions
  • 15mm EVA footbed absorbs harsh impacts, and lifts for tool-free access to mounting disc

Hm... interesting

I got these bindings in the off season on discount. Out of the box, these things look sick! I love the idea of the King Pin, as well as these bindings looking nigh indestructable. looking forward to testing these out in all sorts of conditions. And with the heavy winter we are supposed to get, I hope to be ripping and giving a detailed review later on. Until then, shred happy!

Unanswered Question

I have been eyeing these for quite some...

I have been eyeing these for quite some time now, but I wear a size 12 DC Judge. I keep seeing how the heel cup is small, does this apply to both sizes of the binding?

Excellent bindings!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently started riding with these bindings and have about 10 days or so on them. First, the quality of the piece, both aesthetically and functionally is top level. They truly are a beautiful binding. After riding them, I can say their performance matches the high level of their aesthetics. The heel cup fit me perfectly, the straps are easy to size and are very comfortable, the high-back hugs the back of the boot, but doesn't intrude, and the ride quality with the Hanger and Kingpin technology is rad.

I ride 32 Lashed and DC Judge boots, both are size 10 and I fit perfectly in the Medium binding.

These bindings really are dope.

Good review, jerp! Would you recommend these as a versatile option for all types of sets...Pow to Jibs, Freeride to style? I've had my Ride Capo's for two years and was just about to upgrade to the next step up, when these caught my eye.

Design flaw...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really wanted to give these bindings a try after reading reviews but sadly i had to return them before I even got to shred any snow with them. It has a very narrow heel cup so my boots had hard time getting in. And I only wear sz 9.5. I literally had to stomp my foot with all my strength to get it in. Very poor design flaw imo. If they make it with wider heel cup then I might give it a try again but till that is fixed, it's a no go for me.

Strange.... I have XL NOW IPO's and am wearing Ride Lasso's in a size 12 and don't have problems and the Lasso's are kind of a wider boot. To bad as these are great bindings.

AWESOME bindings!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Picked up a set of these at the toronto ski & snowboard show having never heard of this company prior to the show. Have to say I am blown away by these bindings. The edge control is amazing since the idea/tech behind these bindings is to put the pressure where it needs to go. There have been a lot of gimmicky bindings in the past (and present) but I firmly believe that these are a game changer. Hope NOW has their patents in place... lol!

Do yourself a favour and get yourself a set. They will def. take your game to the next level.

It's still early in the season but so far I'm very happy with the quality and build. Seems at this point they will be able to take some wear and tear for sure.

AWESOME bindings!

Pure comfort and response

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The IPO truly is a completely different approach to the traditional binding layup. This is achieved through placing the baseplate that flexes similar to a skateboard truck and places the flex point directly under the middle of your foot rather than at the heel and toe of the binding. This drastically reduces the fatigue on your foot while really transferring energy to the toe and heel edges of your board. That means you ride comfortable for longer! Also the heelcup has been mimicked to be taller than traditional heelcups, which allows for a bit shorter of a highback. The great thing about this is the phenomenon known as "binder bang" is basically eliminated. These bindings fall in the medium stiffness range so they are great for basically any riding style you can throw at them. Enjoy a binding that actually works with you, rather than just keeping you attached to your board.

No high back say what!

I love these bindings they are amazing for deep pow runs on my NS Heritage 158 with no high back. My boots are a K2 UFO so they are kind of stiff to start with but with the soft bushings and high back less it was like surfing in the snow. The binding does take some getting used to at first about a run or to till you get the feel of what it applies power to the edge. To me it feel like the ultimate gas pedal front and rear for those dynamic turns. Like the other review said if you have a size 10 boot you are kind of SOL for sizing as you are right in the middle of M and L. If you boot has any shrinkage tech in it get the M and you will be happy. I also rode this binding on my Blacklist while in the park and was surprised how well they preformed. On several jumps I cleared most of the transition areas and land almost flat, the foam on the base just soaked it up like a sponge. An awesome binding that I can?t wait will they come out with the new big high back and low wing back for 13/14.

Amazing bindings

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I took these bindings out a handful of times so far and I gotta say that are really something really ease transition from edge to edge, turn initiation is improved and the way they feel unbelievable in Pow, like no other binding I have ever used. Haven't had a chance to ride them with no high backs because I haven't hit deep pow just yet with post a update as soon as I do.

Bindings are built tough a real solid construction, straps and buckles are great and high back is shorter then most but perfect for these bindings. With the three sets of bushings that come with these bindings you can adjust how soft and stiff they feel and adjust response really a great feature.

Sizes run a little big would definitely recommend going with a L if you are running a wide board setup because I'm a size 10 boot and I initially bought a L but the bindings were too big for the board, and ended up doing a return and got the M and they fit great.

Great bindings highly recommend for anyone that likes to do a lot of high speed carving and sick pow runs, the bindings really eliminate the chatter great all around binding
