FTI EVO2 AIR CHASSIS

Double Air technology meets FTI featuring our new Mini Disc to maximize the available dampening area. Huge cut-outs for airbags in the toe and heel part bring the weight down and a new coring pattern enhances strength and response. This chassis is available in a carbon or glass fiber reinforced nylon composite. All versions now have super cush EVA padding and all features known from FTI chassis, such as stance fine adjustment or quick heelcup micro adjustment. FTI AIR CHASSIS

The FTI Air chassis is a huge step forward in lightweight binding design and dampening. By opening up the sub-frame on the heel, we were able to insert a full-size Airbag. Not some micro gel pad or rubber bubble, but a full- size Airbag that will absorb icy park landings and huge street drops, taking the impact instead of your back. The FTI Air chassis is also featuring our new Mini Disc for maximum board flex. FTI CHASSIS

The Fast Track Interface chassis is our perfect blend of fiber reinforced nylon and T6 aluminum to create an ultra lightweight binding with incredible response and enhanced board feel all without the rigidity of a 100% metal binding. Our exclusive Fast Track system securely attaches the heel cup at the front of the binding without hardware, which increases leverage and transfers power faster from heel to toe. It also allows you to quickly micro adjust your bindings with just two screws at the heel while keeping your foot always centered within the binding. Now also featuring our new Mini Disc. Precision FIT 2 Chassis

Dampening like no other one-piece binding in the line-up. Queen size airbags in toe and heel deliver unrivalled dampening and support while massively reducing weight. Our most efficient suspension technology is now available in a one-piece binding chassis. Fiberglass loaded Nylon material guarantees best strength and response at a minimum weight. Precision FIT Chassis

The precision fit base. Raiden’s one-piece is designed for size independent flex and response. NEW A-Frame Chassis

Our latest addition to the Raiden line of binding chassis, the A-Frame chassis is lightweight and sturdy, offering all the performance features that will enhance your every-day riding experience. ASYM HIGHBACK SUPPORT

Our asymmetrical highback designs are built for the quickest response from rider to board. The Asym design better accommodates today’s stances from 21 inches and up. To ensure maximum response and align the pressure to the middle of the boot, the highback support axis is shifted 5 degrees inwards. Better edge hold, comfort and lightweight, what more could you ask for. Featured on the Carbon Beam / X-Beam / Flex Beam / asym Type R / asym Type S / asym Hammer highbacks. SYM HIGHBACK SUPPORT

This highback concept stands for a symmetric response pattern and the perfect blend of strength and lightweight performance. A medium torsion flex allows for enhanced mobility without sacrificing control. Featured on the Type S / Hammer / Talon highbacks.

2013 tech highlights

NEW ASYM CARBON BEAM HIGHBACK

Unlike many similar designs, this new highback is constructed entirely of carbon fiber. It’s unique design and structure makes it our lightest and most responsive highback to date.

NEW 2x4 MINI DISC

We completely redesigned our signature Mini Disc with some additional features. The weight has been reduced using a fiber-reinforced composite material, allowing the binding to be mounted and micro-adjusted on any common 2x4 insert pattern. The smaller disc means more space to cushion your ride without sacrificing adjustability while the small mounting footprint combined with a slightly softer material significantly reduces the binding’s impact on the board flex.

RAIDEN DUAL AIR DAMPENING

The Dual AIR concept extends the shock absorbing qualities known from heel airbags to the toe area while significantly reducing the weight of the binding. FEA optimized cushion columns provide the support and response you can rely on. During hard landings, these dampeners collapse and efficiently absorb energy, while an additional gel insert in the heel eliminates high frequency vibration. This team trusted dampening platform helps them go bigger and ride longer. RAIDEN AIR DAMPENING

Our trusted AIR suspension technology is now featured on even more models. The lightest shock absorbing technology on the planet sucks up hard landings and keeps your heels from getting bruised. This noticeable difference in ride and comfort does not miss any response and control. CANTED RAIDEN AIR DAMPENING

Sparked by the Teams wish list, these cushions combine the economics of a cantered foot bed with the shock absorption qualities known for Raiden’s unique air dampening system. Riding in a more relaxed stand at wide stances lets you ride hard without getting beaten. CANTED BASE DAMPENING

Integrated 3mm EVA base canting eliminates pressure on the joints for more time riding and easier board control even on wide stances. EVA BASE DAMPENING

EVA footbeds provide great shock absorption from big drops and they dampen vibration for increased comfort and improved control. NEW PROFILED ERGO CUT ANKLE STRAP

Using an ergonomically shaped outline, these straps have a tapered profile towards both ends to fit more snugly in the connection areas while still providing lots of cush in the central impact zone. NEW PROFILED ASYM ERGO CUT ANKLE STRAP WITH FLEX WINDOW

We have developed an asymetrical shape for more medial flex for freestyle riding while supporting the lateral side of the boot. Combined with a tapered thickness profile, this stap is the ultimate in control and freedom. PREMIUM CONTROL CUT ANKLE STRAPS

These straps are bigger and have more area to cover the ankle. Combined with our ultra soft, super foam and internal 3D molded frame, this means you can crank these straps down even tighter without getting any pressure points. PREMIUM SLIM CUT ANKLE STRAPS

Our Slim cut ankle straps have a narrower profile for improved flex and freedom of movement. Incorporating our super memory foam for lasting comfort and additional leather reinforcements on the top and sides, this design can take any abuse. NEW CONTOUR CUT ANKLE STRAP WITH FLEX WINDOW

This new design provides both flexibility and control, combined in one lightweight and comfortable package. FLEX WINDOWS

A large center cut-out that makes the straps ultra pliable and conforming to your boot shape, while the 3D molded internal frame strengthens this lightweight construction for a solid foothold and lasting support. NEW AIR WINDOW

The integration of a lightweight air bag into the flex window provides more controlled dampening. REVERT TOE STRAPS

The Revert toe strap construction nicely follows the shape of any boots toe box. You can wear it either in front of your boot to pull the foot back and down or traditionally over the top of the boot like a conventional strap. Converted in just seconds, of course, tool free! CABLE CONNECTOR STRAP

The cable connector strap features an internal stainless steel cable to eliminate stretch and breakage while retaining full flexibility and tool free adjustment. SPEEDWHEEL ALUMINUM BUCKLES

Ultra lightweight aluminum levers with an injected ratchet roller wheel for fast, effortless entry, zero slip and unmatched reliability. FORGED SPEEDWHEEL ALUMINUM BUCKLES

The strongest and lightest aluminum lever construction and the smoothness of a composite Speedwheel makes the buckles work like a dream and last forever. SPEEDWHEEL BUCKLES

This 2-part design allows for high strength materials to be chosen for the lever while the ratchet roller is made from a smoothly gliding polymer. No stripping – no slipping! LSD - LADDER SPEED DEVICE - ALIGNMENT

This little buddy aligns your ladders right into the buckles for an ultra fast, precise bite of your buckles. You will trip out how well they work. S-CURVED LADDERS AND CONNECTOR STRAPS

These pre-curved ladders stay out of your way when stepping into the binding, but slide into the buckles effortlessly. CABLE RATCHETS

The team loves the cable connector for its durability and zero stretch. Now you can benefit from the same concept on the ratchet side. Stainless steel cables are over molded inside the tongue – no more stretch, no more breaks.
