    Impulse Bindings

    Impulse is a set of bindings for snowboarding, which gives snowboarders the freedom to change their stance, footing and position depending on the mountain terrain or for a greater personal challenge. The bindings are able to open and close, thus giving snowboarders the opportunity to move their feet while maintaining the structure of the toe and an ankle strap to provide the necessary support. Therefore the snowboarder is able to loosen the typical "uptight" structured stance of the sport, and bring back the "relaxed" surf-inspired stance that harks back to the origins of the sport.
