Angry Snowboarder provides a review of the Now Drive snowboard binding. The test occurred in the early season with no new snow, and the snowboard used was a Niche Aether 156. The test user had a size 8 boot. The review was overall positive, but did note that the size 8 boot seemed to be the smallest boot size the binding could securely handle.
- The toe strap had a bit of a hard time accommodating my 8’s, which are on the bottom of the size run.
- The ankle strap had a very solid locked in feeling. The solid foam strap feel very secure and locked in. The strap doesn’t have any stretch and only minimal flex.
- The carbon/nylon disc mount Post) was a huge improvement. It provides just a hair more solid locked down feel than the older aluminum mount.
“The toe strap had a bit of a hard time accommodating my 8’s, which are on the bottom of the size run. They never blew off or felt like they weren’t doing their job, but they tended to slip forward a little bit. The ankle strap had a very solid locked in feeling.”
