Click into the Salomon Defender Snowboard Binding and point it down steep faces, send it off cliffs, and slash powder with unprecedented precision and power. Backed by pow-shredding powerhouses Wolle Nyvelt and Josh Dirksen, the Defender has a stiff, supportive flex and response-maximizing tech to keep you in control when you're taking on technical terrain.
The ShadowFit baseplate features a KEVLAR QuickWire heelcup, which replaces the traditional rigid heelcup with a flexible one that truly conforms to your boot when you crank down the straps. This not only makes it more comfortable and allows you to tweak harder without sacrificing support, but it also increases response because of the continuous contact with the heel of your boot and the KEVLAR wire running through it. Combine that with the powerful support and energy transfer of the new Defender highback, and you have the intuitive control and enhanced response you need to take down the biggest lines and hairiest terrain your local range has to offer.
