Sign up now for a chance to win a pair of Forest Bailey Transfer Bindings.
You are now entered to WIN a pair of the all new Bent Metal Binding Works, featuring our USA made Flex Control Drive Plates.Winners will be announced monthly via email.
The Bent Metal Binding Works Team is a no nonsense squad of snowboarding powerhouses, who demand the highest performance out of their snowboard bindings. Covering all aspects of snowboarding, the BMBW team has one thing in common, they ride hard and can’t have their product holding them back from a session! Anchored by the godfather of power freestyle, Jamie Lynn, the BMBW team is stacked with epic talent and growing every week!
In many ways, Jamie Lynn is freestyle snowboarding. His method, his frontside 360, and his cab spins set the bar impossibly high for style and technique, from the mid 90's to now. With a new lease on snowboarding, and a whole new batch of riders looking to Jamie for inspiration, the future looks rad, brother.
Starting out as Lib Tech's child phenom Eric Jackson has turned into a bearded freestyle mountain whisperer the likes of which snowboarding has never seen. The park and pipe could only hold Mammoth's favorite son for so long, eventually E-jack started casting his lure in to the more rapid waters of big mountain snowboarding.
Juneau boy Mark Landvik grew up riding the steep and deep of Eaglecrest Ski Area where he honed his unholy popping, tweaking, spinning and stomping abilities. He has spun, tweaked and stomped his way to the largest stage of snowboarding, filming along side the world's best for the biggest blockbuster snowboarding videos.
With big sky and bigger terrain at the door step of Montana's Glacier National Park it's no wonder Jason Robinson became the limitless snowboarder and adventure seeker he is. Known for unbelievable tricks and HUGE big mountain moments Jason chases his passion around the globe. You might catch Jason driving his grease powered truck-home to Haines Alaska, or hopping a train to the National Hobo Convention.
Frederik Kalbermatten lives literally at the Saas Fee gondola station. His familiarity with the mountains is elemental and has turned an already aware individual in to a hyper precise freestyle mountain guru. Not one to lose his cool, Fredi calmly spins and flips through the Alps or Caucasus or Himalayan mountains with just the right speed, just the right poke and enough fuel in the tank to stick the landing, perfectly.
Big rails and smooth style is the hallmark of Ted Borland's snowboarding, maybe that's why they call him Big Smooth. Although Ted cut his teeth on the East Coast, putting in years at Mt. Snow and mixing it up at rail jams and sessions, his riding really blossomed when he moved to Utah and became an all terrain Brighton ruler. Ted's hard work ethic has propelled him to film mind bending ender parts with Think Thank.
Brandon Reis is like Jim Carrey in the movie "Yes Man", if one of his friends suggests it he has to try it. Back flip that, double back flip this, go naked down that, try a 540 onto this..naked. Yes, yes he will. And when you say "yes", just like Jim Carrey, good things happen. There isn't a challenge in the snowboard world Brandon wont rise to and there are very very few he doesn't conquer.
Ryan Paul or RP is a boundless source of ideas and energy. This zany earthling cannot be held back by earth's limitations, anywhere, or anytime. Coming out of Minnesota, as many of world's best rail riders do, Ryan separated himself from the pack with fearless flips and a generally wild (or zany, if you will) disposition.
What can you say about Jesse Burtner that hasn't been said already? Chiseled good looks, text book style, world record air time...yes those are all things that haven't been said. But what has been said and remains true is Jesse is one prolific, hard shredding, one-footing, Think Thanking creative boss of many trades.
Quiet power, timeless style and perfect line selection are great descriptors of our bindings but even better ways to describe snowboarding legend Temple Cummins. A four time Legendary Mt Baker Banked Slalom champion, Temple understands speed and the nuances of terrain and equipment. But maybe most importantly he understands how a rider reacts (or over reacts) to his surroundings and equipment.
With snowboarding at a junction between impossibly twisted competition heroics, unattainable helicopter dream trips and punishing metal and cement stunts it's no wonder the youth and bearded youth are turning back to the roots. The simple mechanics of a turn have never been more enjoyed than by snowboarding's current iconoclast.
Hailing from the rolling prairie of Tumalo, OR under the shadow of Mt. Bachelor, Max Warbington is an all terrain snowboard phenom coming in to his own. Max was raised on snow, his parents, avid mountain enthusiasts, had him attending High Cascade since before he could ride the Gravitron at the county fair.
Future primitive geo-urban freestyle spirit ranger Forest Bailey is riding, painting, signing and celebrating with and on Bent Metal Binding Works! One of the most influential snowboarders of the past decade Forest is known for his street rail skills but is often seen harnessing unreal backcountry magic as well.
Growing up in Colorado as a skate / snow phenom Phil Hansen had trouble choosing a path. Should he rule at the highest levels of skate, battling it out with the Louie Lopez's and Curren Caples of the world? Or should he dominate snowboarding, chasing contest results, Olympic team spots and energy drink sponsors? He chose neither.
The young buck on the squad Matteo Soltane hails from Seattle and is part of numerous notorious Summit at Snoqualmie crews including Wet Gloves, Sick Dawgs and So Tits. With influences the likes of Jamie Lynn, Jesse Burtner, Forest Bailey and Pete Saari, Matteo is a rider with a sick method, crazy one footers, next level rail moves and an old soul.
Red bearded east coast buzzard Pat Moore lives in a blizzard of thrash metal freestyle snowboard mayhem and is now ripping with Bent Metal! Pat has put out some of the world's heaviest video parts ever. Blasting off kickers, gaps, rails, walls and cliffs with simultaneous reckless abandon and total precision. There isn't anything this dude doesn't charge with total commitment, total stoke and a huge smile on his face.
In the war of industry bullshit Sean Genovese remains steadily a conscientious objector. Forever true to his vision, whether it be his art, his brand direction of Dinosaurs Will Die, the tricks he does, the movies he edits, the products he endorses, the music he listens to or the books he reads. Everything is true, everything is as sick as it get's and pure Geno.
Barrett Christy isn't just one of the most decorated winter sports athletes ever, she isn't just a 20 year Gnu pro model veteran and a women's snowboarding pioneer of the highest order, she's also an astute product tester, designer and advocate for high functioning high performance women's specific shred equipment. Barrett ripping with BMBW means great things for the future!
Fredrik Perry is a human and snowboarder completely his own. Dropping one of a kind video treasures along the trail of snowboard history for close to a decade now. His nonchalant attitude and humor always translate %100 to his snowboarding. In person and on his board he is understated, completely at ease and calm but also ridiculously funny, fairly weird and always maintaining the ability to be completely surprisingly original and amazing.
Kaitlyn Farrington's addiction to explore has put her on the highest peaks and podiums in the world. Her competency in competition extended to fearless freeride. Must be something in the water over there in Sun Valley... she's always got smile on her face. In constant pursuit of unique adventure, Kaitlyn lives life as her party and somehow she always ends up VIP.
Coming up in the competitive Scandinavian snowboard scene, Zebbe Landmark quickly made a name for himself as a style guru who left the ballerina scene behind for a path of slow spins and perfectly locked back lips. His natural habitat might be bagging bangers in the cold streets of Stockholm, but he's no one trick pony. He's right at home chucking in the park or on a backcountry jump and has a solid line awareness game that keeps him looking comfy in any situation. Zebbe, like a good pair of bindings, does the simple things right, pays attention to detail and get's the job done with style!
Blake Paul is in the vanguard of progressive snowboarding pushing all levels in all terrain all the time. An effervescent style, a unique approach, a bottomless trick bag and a seemingly endless appetite for stacking footage have all added up to Blake being a legacy rider in the making. He's a stylish lad who seemingly jet sets the globe from mountain peak to beach break with some yacht rock and skate park in between. But don't let that perfectly coifed hair fool you; this Millennial's safe space is ripping snow flakes from steep spines to big gaps, slushy park laps and street missions.
Tucker's particular brand of snowboard expression was forged from years of following his own path, traveling up the ranks from teenage park rat to big line guru at the beat of his own drum. Now Tucker is at the forefront of a new warped wave of snowboard talent that blends all aspects of riding into one amazing all mountain approach. It's a good times pedal to the metal, open backflipping, fully committed, chain saw slashing shred your face off approach that somehow comes out looking like peaceful zen. It's Tucker. And he's doing it right and we're so stoked to have him on BMBW!
