Changing the game.
Offering versatile all-terrain performance to ladies who shred the entire mountain, the Bent Metal Women's Upshot Binding is the first women-specific binding to feature Bent Metal's revolutionary construction and performance. It combines a freestyle-friendly flex with precise and powerful energy transfer to create a binding that can get loose in the park one minute and shred powdery steeps the next.
The most notable feature of Bent Metal bindings is the Flex Control Drive plate that sits under your foot. The one included with the Upshot features a shock-absorbing EVA layer on top and a reinforced nylon layer on bottom with layers of biax calcium fibers, eco-sublimated sheets, and a poly core sandwiched between. This creates a forgiving, freestyle-friendly flex that still offers quick edge-to-edge response and precise control. There are also medium and stiff options available (sold separately), so you can change up the feel of your binding without switching bindings entirely.
A soft-flexing urethane highback provides a comfortable fit and offers the mobility you want for lapping the park, while still ensuring enough support for carving groomers and dropping cliffs. 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 that has a reduced size to allow your board to realize its true flex potential.

- Q & A
This binding works.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
For years I religiously rode the Burton Lexa, but I recently made the switch to the BMBW Upshot...and I am in love. They're a no-frills binding, but don't let that fool you...they are insanely comfortable, durable and easy to adjust. You can almost totally dial in the fit, without a tool! Twist the cube on the back to change your forward lean. Drive plates easily snap off an on to gain access to the mounting screws. Ratchets are the smoothest in the game. TRY THESE BABIES OUT. You won't be disappointed.
