Mind-bendingly comfortable response.
The instant you drop in with your feet strapped into the Salomon Hologram Snowboard Binding, all your preconceived notions of how a binding should feel will be shattered. The ShadowFit system provides a combination of flex, response, and comfort that you'll scarcely be able to believe is real.
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 tricks farther, but it also increases response because of the continuous contact with the heel of your boot and the KEVLAR wire running through it. The hologram highback features the an ergonomic shape and flex to create a seamless connection between your boot and the highback.
Additionally, the canted footbed is angled to line up your legs in a more natural position for improved response and less fatigue. Airbed air bags in the heel work alongside the dual-density EVA footbed to cushion your foot from big drops and reduce vibrations when you're ripping through chunder and chop. 3D Asym Supreme ankle straps provide pressure point-free comfort and Locked-Up toe straps are cored-out to shave weight. Powerglide buckles crank down powerfully, yet have a buttery release so you can get in and out of your bindings effortlessly. It seems too good to be true, but the Hologram is not an illusion.

The Hologram's are my 1st Non-Union pair of bindings I have owned in the past 10 years. Typically, I only ride Union bindings... until now.
I paired these bindings up with a new powder deck I picked up and I have never had this much fun on a snowboard in my life! Here in Utah about 90% of the days we've had this season have been powder days. With "winter of the century like conditions" I knew I had to get a new setup for those BIG pow days.
So enough about my stoke... let's get to the details. My favorite thing about these bindings is the flexible heel cup and medium-stiff high back. The blend of the two contours perfectly to your boot and gives you a responsive, yet smooth and surfy feel. Another killer feature is the toe strap! The strap goes around the top &tip of the boot foot box so perfectly. AND they are insanely light weight bindings.
Overall these bindings are some of the best I have ever ridden. I hope they hold up well because they blew my expectations for Salomon bindings out of the POWDER.
If you have any questions on sizing, sick colors to go with your board OR insight into a sickkkk pow deck that will go well with these bindings, just hit me up directly!
