BURLINGTON, VT (April 16, 2009) – Every year SIA's SnowPress Show Daily honors the snowsports industry's best innovations for the upcoming season. For 2010, Forum's all-new Shaka Binding receives top recognition in the category of Skill. “The SIA SnowPress Innovation Awards honor the equipment that our editorial team feels will have the greatest impact on the future of snowsports," says Peter Kray, Editorial Director of the SnowPress Show Daily. Forum Director of Bindings Chris Cunningham states, "We're super pumped that SIA recognizes the Shaka as the future of snowboard bindings. We have really unlocked the board's flex with the Shaka, now making any 4×4 deck even more fun to ride."
Built to work with any 4-hole pattern board on the market, the split base of the Shaka works in conjunction with Forum's entirely new Hinge Disc allowing for not only a more natural board flex, but also the added value of more control to the reverse camber board. In addition, a full-length EVA and FGel footpad provides the ultimate in dampening and cush comfort. Whether slashing the lip or destroying the park, there's no need for a new board to get a new sensation.
