The 2021 Now Drive puts power and precision under your feet, which is exactly what you need when you're tackling steep mountains, big drops, and tearing apart everything the mountain has to offer. Featuring a stiff flex and a high-sitting Calfback, the Drive puts the pedal to the metal, and will hold up wherever you want to take it.
Binding Type: All Mountain Freeride
Flex (1 - Soft / 10 - Stiff): 8 / 10
Board Compatibility: This binding is compatible with 2x4 and 4x4 mounting systems. Channel discs sold separately.
Base Plate: Skate Tech w/ Hanger 2.0
One of the greatest inventions in bindings in the last 5 years, Skate Tech connects your baseplate disc to a hanger which pivots. This allows better response as you pull up evenly on all 4 screws equally rather than just two. The energy is then driven through the legs of the baseplate and out to the edge of the board.
The 2020 Drive hanger is nylon reinforced with 30% fibreglass, combined with a PA 66 with 30% Carbon Fibre post and a 50% glass filled nylon disc for added strength and stiffness with reduced weight.
High Back: Calfback Highback
The Jones Calfback sits 20mm higher than their popular Freewing highback, and has a higher medial side for a better anatomical fit and minimal calf bite. 10 degrees of rotation in the highback naturally align the binding with your stance angles for increased comfort. The heelcup sits up much higher than normal bindings so you can ride these with or without highbacks.
Buckles: Buckles 2.0 w/ PA66-C Buckle Levers
Now have redesigned their buckles, with stronger levers and upgraded springs for increased durability and premium performance. The PA66-C buckle levers are made with a high grade composite carbon fibre blend that is extremely light and strong, reducing overall buckle weight by 20%.
Straps: Hybrid FlipIt Straps + 3D Toe Strap EVA Combo
This unique strap features a hybrid construction with an additional layer of reinforcement applied to the bottom of the EVA cover, which gives you the best support, durability, and comfort. The FlipIt strap is designed to be switched between your left and right foot, with an offset ratchet that gives you a strong, responsive ride when worn with the strap going high, or a more surfy, free ride when switched to the other binding and the strap worn lower. The top of the line 3D Toe Strap creates a better overall boot to binding fit and enhances the EVA grip.
Cushioning: Medium Bushings
The Drive comes with medium density bushings that sit under the 4 binding contact points in your toe and heel. These diffuse board chatter, maintain board to binding contact, and dampen your overall ride. Now Bushings snap out for easily customisable dampening and response.
Warranty: Lifetime warranty on hanger, post, and kingpin. 1 year limited warranty on all other parts.
