Quite possibly the world’s most perfect freestyle binding, the CO2 rides in a league all its own thanks to its unique two-part baseplate construction. Softer materials underfoot increase lateral flex, while stiffer materials along the outer spars ramp up edge-to-edge response. Try doing that with metal! Check the mind-reading control and forget-it’s-there fit of the canted Living Hinge hi-back-complete with our tough as nails, yet featherweight Real Mesh.
Updates for ‘09
-NEW Dual-Component Baseplate Construction
-NEW Ultrastrap Air and NEW Ultra Capstrap
-NEW Under-Baseplate Dampening Material [50% Lighter]
-Baseplate: Dual-Component 50:50 Carbon Fiber/Nylon Composite Spar with Short-Glass Nylon Lower
-Dual-Component baseplate Construction: The CO2 and NEW P1.1 use a dual-component baseplate construction which means the material underfoot is softer than the material alongside the lateral edges. This creates a ride that is softer underfoot, yet stiffer edge to edge for a perfect balance of response, mobility, and board feel.
-50:50 Carbon Fiber/Nylon Composite: HIGH-CALIBER POWER. The tank-like strength and power of carbon fiber meets a more forgiving flex for the final word in strength, response, and mobility.
-Hi-Back: Canted Living Hinge Real Mesh Hi-Back
-Canted Hi-Back Design: Do you know the difference between your left and right? Of course you do, but most hi-backs don’t. Our canted hi-backs feature an ergonomic design that follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize power and increase comfort so you can ride harder for longer with less fatigue.
-Living Hinge: This exclusive technology eliminates excess hardware and weight, and even allows you to adjust your Forward Lean independent of your hi-back rotation. Set your hi-back rotation once, never touch it again and still be able to adjust the Forward Lean any time. Straps: Ultrastrap Air and Ultra Capstrap
-Real Mesh Hi-Back: Our aerospace-grade Real Mesh shaves precious ounces off the hi-back while withstanding the torture of our team riders. Go ahead, try and tear it. This shit is tough! Real Mesh also allows the hi-back to perfectly mirror the shape of your boot’s backstay for the ultimate forget-it’s-there fit.
-Buckles: Dual-Component Smooth Glide Buckles: Buttery smooth entry and release, and unmatched strength are the trademarks of our Smooth Glide buckle technology. Polished chrome-plated aluminum and lightweight polycarbonate levers give you season after season of premium ratcheting power.
-Cushioning: Gapless Baseplate Padding, Under-Baseplate Dampening Pad, and B3 Gel Heel Cushioning
-Gapless Baseplate Padding: Cushioning that covers the entire Baseplate and Gas Pedal to absorb impact and reduce high-speed vibration.
-NEW Under Baseplate Dampening Pad: Impact-absorbent, dampening pads eat up vibration, sudden impacts, and rough terrain so your body doesn’t have to.
-B3 Gel Heel Cushioning: The same cushioning found in our high-end boots, B3 Gel lets you stomp flat landing without self-detonating.
