Fitting Snowboard Bindings
The process of fittings snowboard bindings has a lot to do with what kind of board the snowboarder has, and whether or not they are on a four-hole pattern board.

And in this next segment we're going to go over how to fit your snowboard bindings. Fitting snowboard bindings has a lot to do with what kind of board you have, whether or not you're on a four hole pattern board. You might be on a three hole pattern board. Or you might have a channel system, the EST. So, if you have the EST series, you need a binding that is best going to suit that... something that has a two hole bolt pattern is best going to suit that, plus whatever board you have--whether it's stiff, soft, big mountain, park, or pipe--there's a binding that best suits that kind of board. If you have a four hole pattern board, 99 percent of every binding in the entire world is going to fit on this board. This hole pattern will accommodate any snowboard binding. And back to the three hole pattern, 90 percent of all bindings have a compatibility disc to where that binding can fit on a three hole pattern board. Again, very important, choosing a hole pattern in a board is really not going to affect your performance yea or nay, but it is really important that you understand when you do buy your board, you're going to buy the correct binding that's going to suit the hole pattern, whether it's an EST series, a three hole pattern, or a four hole pattern.
