Freeride mode vs. Surf mode
Jones bindings offer customizable dampening and response by switching between Surf Mode and Freeride Mode. Surf Mode lets you tweak harder, while Freeride Mode keeps you locked in for maximum response.
Switch modes by changing the bushings from soft (Surf Mode) to hard (Freeride Mode) and Flip-It ankle straps.
The Flip-it strap
The Flip-It strap allows you to interchange the ankle straps between the left and right binding to create custom response. Ride with the ankle straps in Freeride mode for more lateral support and board response or flip the straps into Surf Mode for solid heel support, but more ankle flexibility for getting loose.
Flip-it strap - Freeride mode
Position the wide half of the strap above the buckle for more lateral support and board response. Use Hard Bushings for maximum board response.
Flip-it strap - Surf mode
Position the wide half of the strap below the buckle for solid heel support but more ankle flexibility for getting loose. Use Soft Bushings for a looser, more dynamic surf feel.
