NOW Vetta 2019 - 2016 Review by The Good Ride
The NOW Vetta Women’s Bindings are a super damp fun ride. The Skate-Tech hinge system makes the bindings ride more like skate trucks than snowboard bindings, and the incredibly soft footbed makes for a chatter-less ride down the mountain.
The only thing I would like to see would be a better high-back adjustment to really give you the freedom of customizing your stance.
But either way, with or without the extra high-back adjustment the NOW Vetta Bindings are a solid all-mountain freestyle choice.

Boots: Vans Ferra
Boards: Jones Mind Expander
Highback Flex: Medium. The highback on the Vetta is really comfortable and you are able to move around and butter if you want. I guess I was wrong in the video, the company website says the Vetta has the Flex Hinge highback which is only pre-rotated to 5 degrees, not 10 degrees, but I didn’t seem to notice it too much when riding.
Boot Adjustability: Adjusts great for your boot, they have tool-less adjustability which makes it nice for on the fly adjustments. Just don’t crank them down too hard, as it’s difficult to get them loose again without a tool.
Stance Width Adjustability: Very adjustable.
Comfort: Very comfortable binding. No hot spots, the straps fit great around the boot, you are able to bend and flex your foot/ankle and it feels great.
Boot Support: Great support when flexing and turning. Your boot stays in place without any pressure points from the straps.
Turn Initiation: Very fun turning experience on the NOW Vetta bindings, the skate-tech gives it an interesting feel when switching from edge to edge.
Buttering: Butterable, but NOW bindings seem to be a little less buttery than other bindings.
Ratchet System: Fluid and easy to use.
Shock Absorption: Very good shock absorption, one of the dampest bindings I’ve ridden. The footbed is very comfortable and you feel no chatter at all from the snow under the board.
