The 10 Best Snowboard Step On Bindings & Boots of 2021-2022

We’ve all watched and enjoyed our fair share of stereotypical ’80s and ‘90’s ski movies. They all follow a similar plotline, pitting the preppy skiers against the goofy upstart snowboarders. Thankfully in the real world, both sides have put aside their differences and now shred the mountains together in peaceful unison. Except there is one friction point all boarders still experience when riding with their skier friends. We still get constantly badgered while strapping in at the top of the run no matter how fast or efficient we are at it.

Back in the day when skiers and snowboarders were supposedly raging against each other, a solution existed: step in bindings and boots. Unfortunately, these products were plagued by being very uncomfortable as well as lacking the levels of control and security we would like to have on the slopes. The designs ran their course and were gradually discontinued leaving snowboarders with only the choice of traditional bindings that still required some form of strapping in. Luckily, several snowboard brands never gave up hope and continued to dial in new and improved systems for years in secret before releasing them back to the public.

Now there is a rapidly expanding segment of greatly improved strapless snowboard bindings along with comfortable step on boots to accompany them. The new designs have addressed all of the issues faced by the old bindings and boots and now feature high levels of reliability and board control, all while taking ease of use to new levels. Gone are the days of sitting down in cold and wet snow to strap in. Hop off the lift, pop your foot in, and cruise on with us through the best snowboard step on bindings and boots of the year.
