Standard Test Method for Snowboard Step-in Bindings
|Publication Date:||1 June 2007|
|ICS Code (Winter sports equipment):||97.220.20|
1.1 This test method specifies the essential requirements for a snowboard step-in binding-boot system (see ); hereafter referred to as step-in snowboard bindings.
1.2 This test method is applicable to step-in snowboard bindings for adults and children. This type of binding system utilizes a mechanical interlocking mechanism, and the interlock mechanism of the system will be specific to the particular manufacturer. Compatibility between different systems is not expected or anticipated thus each potential combination of boot and binding requires testing.
1.3 For snowboard boots interfacing with ski binding, see ISO 11634.
1.4 For snowboard plate bindings, see ISO 14790.
1.5 For snowboard strap bindings made for soft boots, see ISO 14573.
1.6 For snowboard step-in bindings, see ISO 15344.
1.7 This standard does not address how or under what circumstances a snowboard binding with programmable release modes should release in its intended modes nor does it address the safety, desirability, or efficacy of any programmable release mode for snowboard bindings; any testing of such bindings to this standard must be performed with the release modes disabled or adjusted to their highest release value.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
