The Salomon Hologram and District bindings are high performance bindings that look great.
The District is the Salomon Team binding of choice and it’s ridden by awesome snowboarders like Jed Anderson and Lou Paradis.

- A 30% composite polyamide construction to be more durable than some low end plastics.
- A full E.V.A padded footbed for cushioning
- A lightweight top cap design
- A a solid asymmetric highback
The Hologram is a step up from the District and it’s used by snowboarder of the year Bode Merrill.
The Hologram features;
- 45% composite plastic construction
- A super minimal, lightweight toe cap design that splits to envelope your boots toe for better hold
- Airbags in the heel for dampening
- EVA padding in the base
ShadowFit’s flexable heelcap is a first in snowboard bindings
Both bindings feature some really cool tech called ShadowFit that’s not being used by anyone else on the market. ShadowFit is the flexible heelcap that is designed for an enhanced fit and flex. The heelcup uses kevlar cords for strength while allowing energy transition and lateral movment. They also have a three part, lightweight, ergonomic base construction. This tech is built for freestyle riding, allowing for easy, smooth tweaking and pressing.
Also featured in both is a comfy 3D heel strap that conforms to your foot. Toolless adjustment on the straps, an adjustable highback and easy release, alloy ratchets.
Both of these bindings are obviously freestyle beasts, but one of our snowboard.com friends tried them out in Japan and couldn’t fault them. He said they rode just as well in the powder and were surprisingly stable at high speed.
