The A-10 packs all of Ride's proprietary technology into the most advanced binding in the world. This is our high-performance model designed for the most demanding snowboarders and it is now officially a unisex binding, due to a smaller chassis option for riders of all foot sizes. The all new A-Series Aluminum Chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum with less rigidity than previous designs. The two-piece design allows for toe heel centering and a perfect fit for every boot size. The Carbon Slimeback™ Highback provides the response of carbon fiber with the damping of urethane for unmatched performance. The Three-Piece Ankle Strap combines foam and two different density plastics for comfort, durability, and performance, and it comes equipped with an aluminum mount disc and a composite mount disc for versatility. The aluminum disc will feel more aggressive while the composite disc will allow the binding slightly more flex underfoot. The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board while the TPU basepad softens high-speed vibrations. The A-10 is designed for high-end performance and a very precise ride.
A-SERIES ALUMINUM CHASSIS:
The A-Series Chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum underfoot. The extruded aluminum heel-cup provides ultimate toe heel response. The A-Series Chassis was designed to be less rigid that previous designs allowing the aluminum to flex more under the rider’s weight allowing for a much more reactive ride. Because the Chassis is 100% aluminum, it is narrower than nylon or plastic chassis allowing the board to flex more freely from tip to tail.
CARBON SLIMEBACK HIGHBACK:
Made from laminated carbon and urethane, this unique highback offers the lightweight support and pop of carbon with the smooth dampened ride of urethane.
THREE-PIECE ANKLE STRAP:
Designed to provide ultimate comfort the three piece strap has a rigid plastic piece to provide the response of the binding. This is paired with another urethane piece that assures the strap is comfortable and stays in place over your boot. Finally there is a small amount of padding that compresses without bunching up to assure a tight fit for riders who like to ride their straps super tight.
MINIMALIST WITH OVERMOLD TOE STRAP:
The minimalist toe strap with overmold is the same base strap as the minimalist toe strap with the addition of an overmolded layer of urethane that assures the strap stays in place over the riders desired position over the boot.
Designed to improve ladder durability and eliminate ratchet wag, resulting in a smoother user experience with the same hold you expect.
CANTED WITH PODS FOOTBED:
An ultra-light footbed that uses subtle angles to align the ankles and knees to a more natural and comfortable position. The angle also gives leverage to press the board for huge pop, without affecting your preferred stance width. Urethane pods are bonded to the footbed under the heels and forefront of the riders foot. These pods absorb high speed vibrations for a smoother ride as well as smooth out larger impacts from flat landings.
A-SERIES TPU BASEPAD:
A urethane base pad that sits under the binding and wraps up the side. The urethane provides ultimate damping properties underfoot, and support as it wraps up the side of the binding increasing response as the riders drives their weight into turns.
The plastic disc offers more lateral flex than aluminum for the rider that is focused on comfort and flex over hard charging performance
The Aluminum disc is more rigid than the plastic disc. This disc is suited for the rider demanding precision in their binding.
