The Apollo binding is designed for the expert freerider who demands unmatched edge control, response and comfort. What sets the Apollo apart is the Jones’ exclusive Flax/Carbon Highback that blends the ECO-performance of Flax with the lightweight, torsional stiffness of Carbon. Matching the premium highback with NOW Skate Tech technology created a binding that will respond to your every muscle twitch with lightning fast accuracy. The Apollo can be set up in Surf mode or Freeride mode by switching bushings and swapping the Flip-It ankle straps. Surf mode offers maximum tweak-ability, Freeride mode offers maximum response.
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 adjusting the Flip-It ankle straps. 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.
