Pro boarder Bode Merrill wanted a binding with all the comfort and freedom of Salomon ShadowFit technology with maximum support and precision for backcountry lines, so Salomon added a carbon highback to the lightweight comfort and support that’s intrinsic with ShadowFit. This technology allows a rider's whole kit to flex as one to increase control and performance. Additionally, the Quantum's base plate is engineered to reduce weight and enable better board flex underfoot. Quantum will help advanced to expert riders take their skills to whole new realms and can help intermediate riders continue to build their abilities and confidence.
