SALOMON MI­RAGE $250

Transworld Snowboarding - - WOMEN'S FREERIDE BINDINGS -

Testers found the Mi­rage to be a true oa­sis of com­fort and peak per­for­mance. They raved over the ease and func­tion­al­ity in which the tool-free Mi­cro­max sys­tem al­lowed for mak­ing seem­ingly lim­it­less, no-fuss changes on the fly, while the light­weight yet durable ratch­ets locked boots down with ut­most con­fi­dence. As part of Salomon’s Shadow Fit fam­ily, which re­ceives an over­haul across the en­tire line this sea­son, the Mi­rage in­cor­po­rates ure­thane heel cups that were un­fath­omably flex­i­ble and bul­let­proof thanks to the in­no­va­tive Kevlar Quick wire sys­tem. The re­sult is an anatom­i­cal fit, which lies at the in­ter­sec­tion of tor­sional flex and lon­gi­tu­di­nal rigid­ity.

RAD: A unique bind­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that blends soft tor­sional flex with lon­gi­tu­di­nal rigid­ity. BAD: May not please the rider who likes a tra­di­tion­ally stiffer bind­ing.
