The AL-6 is designed for all-mountain versatility. This binding is at home anywhere on the mountain from the park to the peak. The AL-6 is designed for riders looking for the precise feel of aluminum at great price. The A-Series Aluminum Chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum with less rigidity than previous designs. The Reversible Ankle Strap provides high-end performance, durability, and all-day comfort without any extra weight. Urethane in the Slimeback™ Highback provides a smooth ride and allows for maximum lateral mobility. The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board. The AL-6 is designed for customers seeking the responsive feel of aluminum in a binding they can take anywhere.
A - SERIES:
A-Series Chassis is built with a forged aluminum heel-cup (all new construction) bonded with a new stamped aluminum tray.
This is for the customer that prefers the precise feel of aluminum (current Ride binding customers).
— Optimized feel of aluminum
Reactive flex power transfer without rigidity
— Less heavy hardware/overlapping metal that makes the bindings stiff
— Ability for more torsional roll in the heel
— Eliminates slipping heelcups
Designed to be worn in two positions: one for hard charging, performance and the other for a more relaxed feel that lets you really lean into your ride. Utilizes a strong upper and a soft flexible lower portion to support all of your riding needs.
MINIMALIST TOE STRAP:
Designed to offer maximum performance and durability with minimum weight and distraction
Designed to improve ladder durability and eliminate ratchet wag, resulting in a smoother user experience with the same hold you expect.
Highbacks utilize urethane similar to our Slimewalls™ technology. The Slimeback™ material absorbs shock and damps vibrations to help smooth the ride while providing fluid support.
Construction + Materials
A-SERIES ALUMINUM CHASSIS:
The A-Series Chassis provides the reactive flex and power transfer of aluminum underfoot. The extruded aluminum heel-cup provides ultimate toe heel response. The A-Series Chassis was designed to be less rigid that previous designs allowing the aluminum to flex more under the rider’s weight allowing for a much more reactive ride. Because the Chassis is 100% aluminum, it is narrower than nylon or plastic chassis allowing the board to flex more freely from tip to tail.
An ultra-light footbed that uses subtle angles to align the ankles and knees to a more natural and comfortable position. The angle also gives leverage to press the board for huge pop, without affecting your preferred stance width.
