Ride A-4 21/22
The A-4 is designed for the rider looking for high-end materials and a high-performance all-mountain binding without breaking the bank. The A-4 uses the same super responsive and lightweight highback we’ve had in the past. The One-Piece Ankle Strap offers performance and comfort without the extra bulk and weight. The cored nylon highback is designed for responsiveness without the additional weight. The A-Series Aluminum Chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum with less rigidity than previous designs. The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board. If you are on a tight budget, but demand lightweight all mountain performance, this is the binding for you.
A – SERIES:
A-Series Chassis is built with a forged aluminum heel-cup (all new construction) bonded with a new stamped aluminum tray.
This is for the customer that prefers the precise feel of aluminum (current Ride binding customers).
— Optimized feel of aluminum
Reactive flex power transfer without rigidity
— Less heavy hardware/overlapping metal that makes the bindings stiff
— Ability for more torsional roll in the heel
— Eliminates slipping heelcups
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.
Traditional Highback material that offers a predictable mix of response and comfort.
ONE-PIECE ANKLE STRAP:
Designed for comfort and durability. The single material strap provides response and comfort in a utilitarian package that wastes nothing
MINIMALIST TOE STRAP:
Designed to offer maximum performance and durability with minimum weight and distraction
Designed to improve ladder durability and eliminate ratchet wag, resulting in a smoother user experience with the same hold you expect.
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.
The plastic disc offers more lateral flex than aluminum for the rider that is focused on comfort and flex over hard charging performance
