2024 K2 PROGRAM BINDINGS
The K2 Program snowboard binding is a high-performance binding for the advanced-to-expert level snowboarder looking to take care of mother nature, without sacrificing performance. A 50% Glass filled nylon chassis is surrounded with castor-bean based materials, with a goal of reducing the size of a binding’s carbon footprint.
By utilizing eco-conscious and recycled materials instead of plastics and EVA, we have made significant strides in sustainability. Our manufacturing process relies on over 40% solar-powered energy, and our packaging is FSC certified, utilizing cardboard and recycled paper instead of plastics.
As a result, we have achieved impressive reductions in our carbon footprint – it’s not perfect, but it’s a click in the right direction:
The Path binding uses ~40% Bio-based material by volume and ~25% by weight.
- DD1 Ankle Strap and BetterWrap Toe Straps have seen a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions per kg when compared to traditional TPU straps.
- The castor-bean-based FR1 Highback offers ~a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions per kg when compared to a nylon highback.

A CLEANER CONNECTION:
We always want to put Mother Nature first. To do this, we prioritized our time, energy, and resources into developing a product that not only performs best in class but has a smaller environmental impact than a traditional snowboard binding. Using Eco-Conscious and recycled materials in place of the plastics and EVA that are traditionally used to manufacture highbacks, ankle straps, toe straps, ratchets, and more.
As a result, we have achieved impressive reductions in our carbon footprint – it’s not perfect, but it’s a click in the right direction.
