    Talking Bindings for Boardercross

    What kind of binding and boot combination do boardercross riders use in competition? Especially on a prior 4WD board?

    You might try posting on the racing and coaching section on this forum to see if you get an answer to your reply.Also if you could go to a boardercross race to watch and see what people are using?

    yes that is the short answer...for softboot and binding...I think east wants specific brand/model names? I will not advertise a binding, but I've seen anytype win races from stepin to the flowstrap and even alpiners on hardboot.

    It is the driver not the car...yea?

    In addition, the 4wd may accept hardboot but the board is designed bit wide for benefit of any plate design. They use any and all kind of models on the tour, but you also want a solid snug interface that will not explode...Of course, you also need something with warranty/service or binding you can replace, if you find yourself in that situation.

    The 4WD is 21.5 cm wide and doesn't work well with softies. Maybe you're thinking of the ATV at 23.5 cm?

    From the Prior website regarding the 4WD:

    Best for - Groomers, fall line, powder, hardpack, ice, moguls, steeps, and crud.

    Rider type - Recreational and advanced alpine snowboarders who want all-mountain performance; hard-boot BX competitors seeking gold at intermediate and World Cup races.
