Goofy or Regular?

First of all you need to know which foot you should have in front when riding. As a rule, your dominant leg should be in front. If your left foot is in front it is called "Regular" and if your right foot is in front it is called "goofy". There is an easy way’s to find out which is your dominant leg (If you are riding Regular or Goofy);

Ask a friend, wife, husband or a next-door neighbour to stand behind you, and then gently push you forward. - The leg you make your first step forward with is usually the dominant leg. If you want to find out by yourself you can simply run and slide along a smooth surface. Your reflex will put your dominant leg in front.



This is all down to personal preference and where on the mountain you are going to spend the most time. When you stand on your board, your feet will be spread apart. A narrower stance helps the board carve a turn better, while a wider stance will give you better stability.

Riding powder? Set them back and you will increase the length of the nose of your snowboard, which will give it float in the pow.

Playing in the park? Centre the bindings if you are planning to ride park, pipe and rails. It is a lot easier to jump and ride switch (backwards) when the bindings are centred.

Doing a little bit of everything? Set them back one step.

How wide / narrow should they be?

Step onto the board (Without bindings attached) as you would go riding. If it feels good and natural, this is where you should mount your bindings. If you can't decide then you can do it roughly as far part as your shoulders.

In the end it is all down to comfort and choice. Do not be afraid to change your stance and play around with it. There are many tool stations on the slopes where you can change your bindings. All you need is a screwdriver. You will soon find what is best for you and your riding style. Most snowboards all ready come with a recommended stance marked on the board.

What are your angles?


The most common and possibly the most versatile one is what is some times refered to as duck. The front binding registers a positive angle while the back is set to a negative. This will allow you to ride switch and regular with equal ease and delivers a stable comfortable stance.

If you are just blasting down the mountain and not even thinking about riding switch then you might prefer positive angle on both front and back foot.

Here are some angles you can try:

Freestyle: Front foot +15 with back foot -15

All Mountain: Front foot +18 with back foot -9

Freeride: Front foot +21 with back foot 0

Forward Lean

Most riders do not bother using this feature. Forward lean describes the angle at which a binding's highback is set. The Highback is there to transfer power to heel edge of the board and the greater the angle, or forward lean, on the highback the greater the responsiveness delivered to the heal edge.

If you are a beginner, I would not worry about this too much for the moment. It is down to personal preference and something you can play around with as you progress. Some instructors use this as a tool to help riders bend their knees.


Make sure your boot size is compatible with the binding size you choose. At the board basement you can select your boot size to find the binding size that is right for you, using our filters.

Entry system

Most bindings are traditional Two-strap bindings, with an ankle strap and a toe-cap strap.

Flow Bindings and SP Bindings have a reclining highback which means you can enter the bindings from behind with ease. These are referred to as Fast Entry bindings.

K2 Cinch TX Snowboard Bindings 2018

The K2 Cinch TX is top of the pile when it comes to step in / rear entry snowboard bindings. It ups the ante in performance and expectation in the step-in market.  In the past, riders that wanted step in technology sacrificed performance and fit—this is a compromise of the past.  The TX is built on an ultra-supportive chassis with extremely clever counter levered mechanism which moves the straps up and out of the way as the highback drops. Add to this 3 degree canting on the very comfortable Cinch TX footbeds for a more egonomic aligned stance on your board to prevent stress on the knees and ankle. Did I mention Tripod technology? Well that is K2 clever chassis which allows you to dial in the lateral flex of the binding through 3 different durometer bushings included in the box. The Tripod chassis is 3 contact points one either side at the front of the binding and one right under your heel. This reduces the contact area down to its most minimal form when combined with K2s mini disc used on this model. What does all this mean? It allows the chassis to have a little lateral flex to feel a tad more forgiving and absorb vibrations and shocks, want more vibration dampening? Use the softest bushing, want more response? Go for the hardest bushing, want it really loose and free? Remove the full EVA foam basepad which sits underneath the binding for a much surfier feel. K2’s new Opti Highback that folds back at the flip of a lever for rear step-in entry is even more refined now with less weight and super sleek looks. Add in a minimal strap and a Perfect Fit toe strap and you have the best speed entry binding on the market, these are goooooood!!
