S2 Binding Modification
I used to use shoe goo on my S2 Bindings
Many Freeborders understand the frustration of having your feet slip out of the bindings, especially on longer runs. Various remedy’s fixing this problem have been posted, but after many trial and errors I have found this method to work best. I previously used Shoe Goo, as you can see in the picture, but Plasti-Dip, a liquid rubber compound, seems to work the best.
Plasti Dip $6.88
Plasti Grip is the answer
Scrape and peel off all the shoe goo or if you’re starting with fresh bindings, go ahead and clean the surface with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils or waxy residue, insuring a clean surface for the Plasti Dip to from a strong bond onto.
Shoe goo all peeled off
Pour the Plasti-Dip into a small tupperware and dip the bindings into the compound.
Dipping the S2 bindings int the Plast-Dip formula
I put rubber gloves on and spread the rubber onto all parts my foot would be touching to make sure i would have good grip. String them from a wire to let them dry, and coat them again.
You will then be ready to ride with the stickiest S2 bindings ever.
Important Note! Make sure you do not cover the screw holes, or the slot that the bindings slide into with this rubber formula. This is a pain to clean out and ruins the rubber seal.
Oops! I got rubber in the binding slot
This is what it will look like coated in rubber. Mount them back onto your bord and you’re ready to hit the hills.
