Transworld Snowboarding - - WOMEN'S FREERIDE BINDINGS -

The DVA’s sleek styling is com­ple­mented by top-notch func­tion­al­ity and com­fort. Testers ap­pre­ci­ated the tool-less ad­just­ments, which fos­tered a se­cure fit and were eas­ily ac­cessed by flip­ping the in­cor­po­rated rub­ber pads. The forged alu­minum mi­cro-disk base­plate cre­ated a seam­less in­te­gra­tion be­tween bind­ing, board, and boot, al­low­ing testers to eas­ily dial in stance pref­er­ences. Fe­male-spe­cific Slime backs pro­vided the re­sponse nec­es­sary when rid­ing steep, long lines but had just enough give in the park. And thanks to their plush na­ture, testers deemed the DVA’s an­kle straps some of the most com­fort­able of the test. The DVA is any­thing but a high-main­te­nance diva.

RAD: Slime backs are rigid enough to meet all­moun­tain de­mands but not too stiff.

BAD: The DVA is on the heav­ier end of the spec­trum.
