The Nxgen takes Now's advanced Skatetech technology and condenses it into a junior binding that's perfect for both new riders and more experienced riders. The advanced Hanger 1.0 transfers the rider's energy directly to the board's edges via the innovative King-Pin technology. This direct energy transfer means you don't need to put as much effort into the board to get the most from it, making it easier to progress your riding skills for novice riders whilst giving a more responsive ride for experienced riders. The Nxgen's comfortable Sieva straps and padded foot pillow ensure that not only is the Nexgen about performance but also about being one of the most comfortable bindings you can strap into.

NOW NXGEN TECHNOLOGY
Traditional bindings diminish energy transfer by the flexing and bending their baseplate, forcing you to crank your straps down harder, ride with more forward lean, or run taller and stiffer highbacks; this leads to more foot fatigue and pain. NOW bindings bypass the middle of the snowboard and direct your energy straight to the board's edges. They do this by mounting the baseplate via their exclusive Kingpin design. Taking its inspiration from skateboard trucks, this kingpin acts as a fulcrum, transferring power directly to both the board's toe and heel side edges. The increased efficiency means you ride with less effort and don't need to crank your straps so tight, so you get increased performance and can also ride for longer.
Now's original Hanger 1.0 baseplate utilises a 15% glass nylon mix to deliver a responsive yet forgiving feel. Its I-Beam construction creates a lightweight but stable baseplate, while the Flushcup heel cup provides optimum boot fit into the back of the binding.
The word SIEVA means single injected EVA. The body of the strap is made entirely with one part EVA injection, eliminating any stitching and reducing glueing to less than 1% of the strap area. A nylon webbing that is strong, durable and flexible is inserted in the body of the strap at one end and sealed by a micro-injected logo. After turning heads with their Hyperfuse Strap, Now decided to push the boundary of strap manufacturing and overall design. The SIEVA strap is about durability, comfort and reducing weight.
Flex Hinge Highback:
- Flex Hinge technology • Pre-rotated 5 degrees laterally • Higher medial side follows leg angles
- Wider lateral for support • Dampens chatter and eliminates calf-bite • Flex rating: 4
Sometimes what works best is a simple, streamlined, minimalist design, and for this we developed the Minimalist Toe Strap. It features everything you need and nothing you don't in a toe strap.
PA66-GF buckles are made with the same high-grade Nylon and Glass Fiber blend found in our Now's
and disc. This material is light and strong.
The Hinge Connector design allows the straps to move out of the way when stepping in and out.
It is strong and durable and helps reduce strap damage and wear.
