Now Brigade 2018 - 2017 Review by The Good Ride

The Now Brigade is one of their more mellow playful bindings that has a nice lower cost take on the Now Pilot. We like the wider footbed and the overall feel of this ride and it works well with a wide variety of boards.  The biggest detractions are the adjustability options and the taller sides of the footbed can pinch some wider boots as well as wear them out.  However, the stand out of this binding is the smooth damp super shock absorbent ride.

Superb middle of the road binding

Overall great binding. Have two of these (2018 model)
Paired with a Yes Standard and a Yes Decade.
The Decade could maybe benefit from the stiffer Now Drive but I like it nonetheless.
Superb dampening shock absorption, snug and tight. I wear size 11 Malamute boots and fits spot on (large binding size)
Sold both my burton malavita and cartel for brigades.
Only gripe ( might be fixed on 2019 models) is the type ratchet sometimes it's hard to open up after a run. They are small and tricky grip. I can live with that until I replace with other brands or the new Now spare parts. Highly recommended.
