Influenced by Gus Engle, Artec has designed the Gus binding specifically to suit the needs of the man himself. This incredibly comfortable and convenient binding explores the freedom of no high-backs that many riders are choosing to implement today. What this binding lacks up high, it makes up for down below. Artec's Gus Pad on the heel cup fills in the gaps and creates an optimal fit between your boots and bindings. These street inspired bindings are light in weight and in price. If you don't want a high-back, don't pay for one. Get the Gus.
New for 2013, the Gus Engle binding delivers unrestricted skate style performance. The Gus is built using our UniTEC Pro baseplate combined with ComforTEC and DiTEC straps. For added comfort and shock absorption we add toe and heel cushion inserts, extended disc padding and GripTEC Pads. After fully loading this binding down low, Gus chose to skip the highback, instead adding a super low Gus Pad, and resulting in pure street inspired freestyle freedom. The Gus Engle binding proves that when it comes to providing performance for today's hyper-creative shredding style, less is truly more.
