Full Description

Ideal for entry to mid-level riders looking solid support, medium flex, and maximum adjustability, the open-toe Cradle is perfect for new kiters or longtime riders looking to give bindings a try. Like all LF boots, the Cradle utilizes a flex-free, super-low IPX chassis to ensure ultimate heel hold and the finest foot- to-board feel. With an impact-dampening sole, 3D-molded ergonomic EVA footbed, and Liquid Force’s Comfort Liner, this binding also features three easy-to-adjust Velcro straps for customized fit.

As far as legacies go in the world of kiteboarding, they don’t run much deeper than the lineage of Liquid Force bindings. Eighteen years ago, Liquid Force released one of the wakeboarding industry’s first revolutionary bindings, and ever since we’ve been on a relentless mission of innovation. Stemming from nearly two decades of development, pro rider input, and continual refinement, for 2014 we’re proud to showcase the most extensive line of kiteboarding bindings out there. Whether closed- or open-toe, all of our bindings are based upon the tried and true technology, support, comfort and performance of Liquid Force’s cutting-edge wakeboarding bindings. The crucial difference is that our kite-specific bindings are just that — made more convenient for kiteboarding.

Built to satisfy the needs of the world’s most demanding riders, all Liquid Force bindings are built upon our IPX Chassis, featuring a super-low and flex-free design, which delivers the finest, most secure foot-to-board feel. All our bindings have a 3D-molded EVA footbed, offering well-engineered contours and support in all the right places, including toe-lift for lightning-quick edge control. Plus, the 2.5-degree anatomical inward cant ensures that ankles, knees and hips all stay in alignment for maximum comfort and performance. Our Gell Cell sole (featured on Synergy and Vantage Kite) delivers the most advanced shock-absorption system on the kiteboarding or wakeboarding market, while Impact EVA (Ultra Kite, Cradle) offers pillow-soft landings as well. Lightweight with a secure fit, the Control and Comfort liners require no heat molding. Zonal Velcro and EZ Glide Lace systems provide quick and easy adjustment for a custom fit, while the Articulated Cuff (Synergy and Vantage only) allows the outer to flex independently like a hinge over the interior liner.
