Eiki’s bindings are optimized for jibbing and hardcore street riding. With custom black and purple baseplate, matching JIB footpads for the inevitable flat and heavy landings and matching straps, they look great. Eiki also has his own custom highbacks. These are asymmetric, with the outside of the highbacks being higher than the inside for support during presses, tweaks and landings. They feature adjustable forward leans so you can get aggressive if you want, but unlike any other SWITCHBACK highbacks, Eiki’s are completely flat so you get a super loose, skate style feeling when you ride and they interfere least with tweaking. The highbacks are purple, with black EVA padding and have a sick graphic of a vampire mouth around the SWITCHBACK GAP. The gap allows the highback to be torsionally flexible yet longtitudinally stiff, meaning that you get all the support you could ever need on your heel edge without sacrificing tweakability on grabs and presses. Add this to their flat profile and you get the maximum freedom of movement.
These bindings are good for all types of snowboarding. They are well suited to people looking for a skate inspired feel like street and rail riders, but alos anyone who enjoys a looser feeling, perhaps for riding jumps, or even for piste jibbing and buttering!
Baseplate-Switchback baseplates look simple and work really well. They are built from super tough and lightweight composite materials and include several key design features for better shredding.
Jib Pad-Extra thick EVA padding under the ball of your feet and your toes gives extra protection against the flat and heavy landings that are to expected when riding street rails and crazy jibs.
Straps-Switchback straps are some of the best! Constructed from super soft EVA covered with neoprene, they mold to any boot shape as the ratchet is tightened. The ratchets themselves are made from strong and light aluminum and the ladders are super tough to minimize wear, even from constant use.
Noback Insert-Gives you a more skate-like jib / mini-shred session or a more surf-like powder experience.
Flatback-Allows you to tweak more in the air and give you more flexibility on rails.
