2019 Airush Element Strap
What Airush has to say about the Element Straps:
The two-part dual-density construction is ergonomically designed to support, stabilize and cushion the foot during high impact landings. Featuring an ultra-comfortable lower density upper layer with extra cushioning on the lateral (outer) side of your foot, with a denser more supportive impact resistant layer on the medial (inner) side of your foot. This unique design increases the support to the medial side of your foot, which in turn guides your knees outwards during high impact landings. This technology, common in running and athletic shoes, offers the best support and stability while minimizing the chances of fatigue and injury.
The variable angle adjustment strap works in conjunction with the directional grooving to keep your foot firmly in place. This, combined with the adjustable rubber molded tongue, enables the rider to fine-tune the Element to fit their specific foot shape and create the ultimate connection to the board. Put simply, the Element makes your board feel better than ever before.
Directional grooving guides your heel towards the center of the pad, helps your toes to grip more effectively and stops your feet from slipping out of position when jumping or in heavy chop.
Dual Molded Direct Impact Footbed
The 2 part dual density molding design creates an ultra comfortable upper layer which is active during regular riding, with a denser more supportive impact resistant layer specifically designed to support and cushion your feet during high impact landings. This unique design increases the ergonomic support to the inside of your foot, which in turn guides your knees outwards during riding.
Rubber Molded Adjustable Tongue
The unique rubber molded adjustable tongue creates a soft flexible framework to support the footstrap and enables the rider to personalize the position of the strap on the base plate, by moving the molded tongue insert forwards or backwards. The dual primary slots create variable sizing options for riders with very big feet or riding in booties.
Toe Compression Strap
The variable angle adjustment strap enables the rider to fine-tune the Element to fit their specific foot shape.
Cast Aluminum Positioning Washer
The cast aluminium position washer distributes the load of the screw over the base plate and allows the angle to be easily adjusted to the optimum angle required by the rider.
Fiber Reinforced Base Plate
Using Technology developed from our binding/boot program we have developed this lightweight and durable framework. The load plate keeps the element firmly connected to your board and optimizes the footbed and strap connection.
