X Turn – Rotating Snowboard Binding by David Newton

X Turn is a snowboard binding that allows the user to quickly adjust their stance angle settings without the need to remove their foot from the binding. Current bindings require the user’s foot to be removed and use of tool to adjust their stance settings. When riding a chairlift or skating’ along flat terrain the users front foot can be positioned forward making these operations easier and more comfortable. Riders can quickly change their stance angle settings when riding different types of terrain. Beginner riders can experiment with different angle settings to find the most suitable.

Pulling up on the release handle at the back will unlock the binding and the heel end will rise up off the board. The binding is now free to rotate by the user turning their foot. Once the desired angle has been reached the user stamps’ down on their heel to lock the binding in place, The binding will remain locked in this position until the user repeats the adjustment process.
