The favorite choice for Chilean big-mountain slayer Manuel Diaz, the Now Recon Snowboard Binding excels at straight-lining steeps, blasting methods off cliffs, and slashing across deep powder. This powerful binding features a 12K Carbon highback and carbon-blended mounting post (surrounds mounting disc) for precise turns and explosive response. Now's Hanger 1.0 base is comprised of a 30% fiberglass blend for a highly responsive feel, but without being as uncompromisingly stiff as a full carbon chassis.
The defining feature of the Recon Binding is Now's Skate Tech. This innovative tech attaches the Hanger 1.0 base to a pivoting center kingpin, allowing you to rock the binding back and forth with a subtle amount of play. This rocking motion mimics the turning sensation of a skateboard truck, directing energy transfer for smooth edge-to-edge transitions. Another benefit of this technology is reduced vibration underfoot, courtesy of shock-absorbing bushings sitting between the binding and board interface. The Recon includes both medium (45 shore) and hard (55 shore) density bushings, giving you the option to swap them out for a customized feel to your particular riding style and local terrain.

Once U go NOW you'll never go back!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The contact you feel with your board is AMAZING! I was truly blown away by these bindings. I have been using Union bindings, and I've tried everything from the Force MC, the Force, and Contact Pros. All are quality bindings but the NOWs are truly a step above and I don't think I will be using anything other than NOW bindings from here on out.

If you are a pipe rider big jumper or find yourself shoulder to shoulder in a top to bottom race with your boys this is for you. As a pipe athlete you will love the response of the skate tech and carbon fiber highback. When you are booking with the crew down the hill the skat tech enables you to rip like a snake in the trees and turn on a dime. Having the carbon fiber high back lightens up your set up making it a little easier to manipulate.
