The Hanger received a new design featuring a wider bushing footprint that’s closer to the edges for enhanced board connection and faster energy transfer. The Hanger 3.0 is also lighter weight and has a lower inner lateral wall for better ankle mobility and high volume boot fit.
The Post is the part that attaches the binding to the board. This consists of Nylon and recycled Carbon. This makes the binding extra stiff for good power transfer.
The binding uses a Asym highback with a wider lateral side for added toe side turn support. Made from Flax and 3K Carbon Fiber and 5 degrees pre-rotated. Multi-position forward lean block with allen key hardware and a flex rating of 9.
- Baseplate: Hanger 3.0 - Nylon Reinforced with 30% Fiberglass
- Heelcup: Nylon / Carbon
- Highback: Asym Flax / Carbon Wide-Back
The Power Spine Ankle Strap is a new two-part molded ankle strap with a wider bottom section for flexible comfort and a stiffer center spine for unmatched response. Flip-it Strap compatible (Freeride mode + Surf mode).
The 3D Flex Fit Toe Strap has a low profile and is grippy, because of the dynamic structure the toestrap can be stretched to fit any shape boot. The spider web inspired design is comfortable, durable and responsive.
The Tri-Foam Foot Pillow is a premium footbed made with three different densities of EVA-foam. The heel and toe are soft for max comfort, and the center is mid-stiff for precise response. The bottom of the footbed is stiff for solid support.

- Toestrap: 3D Flex Fit 2.0 Toe Straps
- Footbed: Response Tri-Foam foot pillow
- Bushings: Soft & Hard Bushings
Inspired by how easily and efficiently a skateboard turns; major components of NOW's system mimic both the function and description of skateboard trucks. The ‘Hanger’ powerfully transfers energy input from the straps to the bushings and onto the edges of your board. The Kingpin acts as a fulcrum, magnifying this energy through leverage. Traditional bindings diminish energy transfer by the flexing and bending of their baseplate, forcing you to crank your straps down harder, ride with more forward lean, or run taller and stiffer highbacks. This all leads to more foot fatigue and pain. NOW bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy right onto the board’s edges. They simply transfer more power to the board with less work, meaning your feet will stay more relaxed and comfortable, longer.
The New Hinge Connectors keep your ankle strap out of the way when you step in to strap in, and new Curved Ladders make it easy to line up the buckle and quickly ratchet down.
The Asym buckles are Bombproof buckles made from aircraft-grade alloy featuring ultra-strong levers and springs. The Triple action ratchet design increases speed of entry and release.
All Jones bindings include a mounting disc compatible with traditional 4x4 inserts, 2x4, and the EST/Channel mounting system.
