If you’re new to snowboarding or mainly looking to ride the park, it’s better to opt for a softer flex. These will be more forgiving and easier to tweak when doing tricks.

How To Choose A Snowboard, Boots & Bindings Combo 0
Matching your set-up correctly
It’s important that your board, bindings and boots all match your ability level and preferred style of riding.
Your first priority should be to find a comfortable pair of boots. Ex: Burton Highline
Aggressive riders focused on speed, big jumps and quick turns should opt for a stiff boot. These offer more support and more instant response. Ex: Ride Insano boot.
Next up, the snowboard. Don’t judge them purely on looks or price. Again, the crucial factor is flex. Softer models are better suited to learning and tricks – especially rails – whereas advanced riders who are more interested in piste, pipe or powder should look for a stiffer flex.
The final piece of the puzzle is your bindings. If your focus so far is on freestyle then you should opt for a softer model to match the flex of your boots and board. Likewise, rigid bindings featuring aluminium or carbon are a good match for freeride set-ups.
It’s vital that your bindings are compatible with your chosen snowboard. The Burton EST range is designed exclusively for the Burton Channel system; these bindings will not fit on standard 4×4 inserts. On the other hand, most regular bindings featuring disk plates CAN ALSO fit the Channel system if required.
Now that you’ve made a selection, fix the bindings to the board, put on your boots and try strapping into your proposed set-up. Check that the sizing of the binding is correct and that the shape of the straps are a good fit for your boots – you don’t HAVE to buy everything from the same brand, but it’s worth considering matching the binding and boot.
