A word from the product manager
This Illusion 400 snowboard binding combines support, comfort and ease of use. We have equipped it with all the essential features of a good snowboard binding for use up to an experienced level. It has a 3D strap at the ankle, which hugs the boot perfectly, a toe strap positioned at the boot's toe (cap strap), offering superior support and comfort, and EVA pads for cushioning.
The Illusion 400 binding is a traditional snowboard binding with gentle ratchet buckles that are easy to click in place and durable. It is a good freestyle all-mountain binding for going anywhere -: piste, off-piste and even snow parks - because it has a short yet stiff highback, giving good rear support for backside tricks as well as ankle mobility during spins.
Turn Strap System : The strap is mounted onto a hinge, which allows it to turn inwards when you lift your foot. When putting your boots on, the space is therefore free to introduce the boot in the binding without any obstacle. This also prevents the strap and hooks from being crushed by the boot when stepping in.
The available settings
"The factory settings suit most people, however you can adjust the following to suit your needs:
- the position of the highback (front/rear/side) by moving the position of the screws that hold it,
- highback canting,
- the length of the gas pedal, particularly useful for those with big feet."
Stance (binding spacings)
"To be adapted to your body shape. But it is worth noting that all snowboards have a recommended position for bindings (recommended stance, indicated by a marker between the inserts of the bindings). Increasing the stance width will lower your position on the board and improve stability. This also helps for aerial rotations. On freestyle boards, the recommended stance width is generally wider than on all-mountain boards.
Adjusting snowboard binding angles
For on-piste freeride use, we recommend an angle of +18° at the front and 0° at the rear. For multipurpose freestyle use, a +18° and -6° angle is better. An open rear foot gives more flexibility when riding switch. For pure freestyle use, you can choose entirely symmetric angles, e.g. +15° and -15°. Binding angles are very much a matter of personal choice. Feel free to check out what others are doing and try out different options. You may be pleasantly surprised!
Centering of the bindings on a snowboard
Disc bindings with 4 screws can slide along a single axis and generally have 5 possible settings. This setting is used to center the boot on the snowboard and prevent the foot from protruding too far. Otherwise you are guaranteed to fall! The boot must therefore protrude from the board by an equal amount on both sides. The disc can also be rotated through 90° to alter stance width in relation to the width set by the inserts. In this case, lateral centering is no longer possible.
Which size should I choose for my Illusion bindings?
M = 4.5 to 7.5
L = 8 to 12.5
Just as you would try on a boot with your own foot, it is strongly advisable to try out the bindings with your own snowboard boots. Because, depending on the brand, the volume of a particular size of boot may vary.
M= 4.5>7.5 // L=7.5>12.5
Foam : 50.0% Steel, Foam : 50.0% Ethylene Vinyl Acetate\r\nFrame : 100.0% Polyamide 6.6
Before each trip, tighten all the binding screws.\nStoring for the summer: you can leave your bindings on the snowboard.
