Jones Meteorite Bindings 2023 - Frosty Blue

Boardworks Breakdown:

If you want to surf every turn on the mountain, Jones bindings are a great time. Their Skate Tech system makes the bindings have an awesome surfy feel. They are also sick if you have sore knees because the skate tech helps absorb chatter in choppy snow. 

 Manufacturer Description: 

 

The Meteorite binding is designed for the all-mountain rider that wants a stable and comfortable binding with a tweak-able medium-soft flex.

The Meteorite delivers precision response thanks to SKATETECH technology that transfers your energy directly to your edges. The Meteorite’s Dynamic Flex highback is stiff in the center for solid support and softer on the sides for friendly maneuverability. The Meteorite can be set up in Surf mode or Freeride mode by switching bushing and interchanging the ankle straps between bindings. Surf mode offers maximum tweak-ability, Freeride mode offers maximum response. To keep your boots locked in with no strap bite, the Meteorite is fitted with our new Power Ankle Straps and 3D Flex Fit 2.0 toe straps. The molded Power Ankle Straps are wide and asymmetric for enhanced comfort and adjustable response and the low profile 3D Flex Fit 2.0 toe strap is slightly stretchy to conform to any boot shape.

Technology 

Skate Tech

The NOW Skate Tech system works like a skateboard truck and enhances board control + reduces foot fatigue by transferring energy input directly from the binding to the board edges through a dynamic design.

 

 

1. Hanger 2.0 and 3.0

Hanger pivots on the Kingpin like a lever allowing lightning fast edge-to-edge energy transfer. True baseless design that delivers the most even board flex of any binding on the market.

2. Kingpin

The Kingpin is the fulcrum that the Hanger pivots on. Design magnifies energy transfer and enhances board response through leverage.

 3. Post

The Post attaches the hanger to the kingpin and is the connection between binding and board.

4. Bushings

Bushings are the primary binding contact point and offer customizable response and dampening (Surf Mode and Freeride Mode).



Unmatched turn power

Power is transmitted directly to the edge.
When you make a hard heel or toe turn the force you place on your straps and highback is transferred directly to your edge through the hanger, kingpin and post. By using the mechanical advantage of this pivot and lever system SkateTech binding are the most responsive bindings in the world. Once on edge, you are locked in.

No comparison to traditional bindings

Power is transmitted through the center disk.
When you make a hard heel or toe turn on traditional bindings the pressure you place on your straps goes into the fixed center disk and forces the binding baseplate to bend before power is delivered to the edges. Energy is concentrated at the center of the board with traditional rigid baseplates which decreases potential turn power compared to SkateTech bindings.


Baseplate

 
Comfort Foam foot pillow

Full length EVA foam footbed that maximizes binding comfort while minimizing foot fatigue. The 3D molded footbed surface offers supreme traction for any boot tread pattern and prevents snow build-up.

Nylon, recycled carbon post

The Post attaches the hanger to the kingpin and is the connection between binding and board. Made from nylon and recycled carbon, the post is super light and durable.

  • Thinner, flexible side edges to eliminate calf bite
  • Tool-less forward lean adjustment


    Freeride mode VS Surf mode

    Our bindings offer customizable dampening and response by switching between Surf Mode and Freeride Mode. Surf Mode lets you tweak harder, while Freeride Mode keeps you locked in for maximum response. Switch modes by changing the bushings from soft (Surf Mode) to hard (Freeride Mode) and adjusting the Flip-It ankle straps. The Flip-It strap allows you to interchange the ankle straps between the left and right binding to create custom response.

    Freeride mode

    Position the wide half of the strap above the buckle for more lateral support and board response. Use Hard Bushings for maximum board response.

    Surf mode

    Position the wide half of the strap below the buckle for solid heel support but more ankle flexibility for getting loose. Use Soft Bushings for a looser, more dynamic surf feel.
