Built for aggressive riders who charge challenging terrain on the daily, the Bent Metal Solution Snowboard Binding delivers power and precision to help you put down the line of a lifetime. An innovative baseplate design gives the Solution the edge control and lightning-quick response needed when riding the biggest, steepest mountains around.
Bent Metal's most notable innovation is the Flex Control Drive Plate, which is an interchangeable bottom piece to the baseplate that lets you customize your level or stiffness and power. The plate one that comes with the Solution features a shock-absorbing EVA layer on top and a reinforced nylon layer on bottom with layers of carbon fiber, Bio Beans eco-sublimated layers, and a maple wood core sandwiched between to provide an insanely stiff and responsive feel. There are also soft and medium options available (sold separately), so you can change up the feel of your binding without switching bindings entirely.
Bent Metal also put carbon in the highback for uncompromising support that won't let you down in the middle of mach-ten heelside carves or when dropping 40-foot cliffs in the backcountry. Low-profile straps conform to your boot to deliver lightweight and secure comfort, with no delay in response when you engage turns. It's all attached to the board through the Pivot Disk, which has a reduced size to allow your board to realize its true flex potential.

- Q & A
Iâve used the Transfer for awhile but I picked these up for my new Banana Magic and they are great paired with it! I understand the frustration with the review before mine. But if Youâve ridden Union or other similar bindings then you know youâve gotta check the hardware daily on them. No strap issues with mine but have to tighten the heel strap bolts after use every time. If you fold your high-back down before riding the lift this is going to happen. Just like a pair of Unions. The weight of these are ridiculous they help to lighten up my already light Firepower board. Performance is sick! The littlest input and they turn like itâs nothing, paired with the Banana Magic and itâs aggressive sidecut it makes for an amazing ride. I recommend these to anyone who enjoys bombing steep and technical terrain!
Not to pleased so far
Bought these for my husband for Xmas - just got back from Jackson hole. After day 1, had to do some binding adjustments throughout the day. When on the bus back to parking lot his toe strap screw came off. Day 2 - screw adjusting to base plate b/c they kept getting loose. So far not pleased with all the work he has to do to keep screws from coming out. Theses are brand new bindings
