The Nidecker Supermatic is what snowboarding has been waiting for: the first universal, dual-entry, automatic binding. Many brands have tried and failed to crack the step-in code. Most of these systems required specific boots; many didn’t work well in powder; and none of them were as comfortable and reliable as a regular two-strap binding. Nidecker has spent four years developing its own solution that addresses all these issues, and it’s a genuine game changer.
The Supermatic works using a triggered highback called Drop-In tech. Just push your foot in through the back and step down on the heel pedal to automatically engage the binding. That’s it – you’re ready to shred. A simple release lever makes exiting just as rapid. The straps are the same comfy AuxTech design found on Nidecker's traditional high-end bindings. Adjust them once, then lock them in place using the Locking Slap Ratchets to enjoy a perfect fit every time. The beauty of this system is that it works with any boot from any manufacturer, and there’s no fiddly mechanism to get clogged. If the slope or snow conditions demand it, you can even strap in just like a regular binding.
