Polar Opposites: In recent years a trend has emerged within snowboarding, more and more snowboarders are executing tricks with only one foot strapped in, but conventional binding systems are making these tricks difficult.
Polar opposites are a one of their kind binding system, specifically designed to make this trend more accessible within the sport, they assist snowboarders in accomplishing the next step into freestyle snowboarding. Designed with the reliability of conventional bindings in mind, Polar Opposites demonstrate a similar product architecture to the conventional systems, a solid feel and ride with a completely new function.
Two parts: One attached to the boot - One attached to the board.
This allows for the boot to release freely from the board, upon a quick release of the dual pin system. Specialised magnets used either side of the rider's ankle, help in correctly aligning the two parts back together, allowing the rider to re-engage.
This project aims to continue & improve snowboarding's legacy in freestyle, through innovation and homing in at its true culture.
