The Mercury is designed for expert freestylin’ freeriders who need a supremely comfortable and responsive binding with a maneuverable medium stiff flex.
The Mercury will respond instantly to your every move thanks to SKATETECH technology that transfers your energy directly to your edges. The Mercury’s Control Flex highback offers solid support while absorbing chatter and eliminating calf-bite. The Mercury can be set up in Surf mode or Freeride mode by switching bushing and interchanging the Power Spine Ankle straps between bindings. The wide bottom section of the Power Spine Ankle Strap is softer for enhanced comfort and the center spine is stiffer for ultimate response. The Mercury also features the Hanger 3.0 which is wider for better boot fit and has an expanded bushing footprint for better energy transfer. New for 22/23, the Mercury is fitted with our new 3D Flex Fit 2.0 toe straps. The low profile 3D Flex Fit 2.0 toe strap is slightly stretchy to conform to any boot shape.
The NOW Skate Tech system works like a skateboard truck and enhances board control + reduces foot fatigue by transferring energy input directly from the binding to the board edges through a dynamic design.
Unmatched Turn Power Power is transmitted directly to the edge. When you make a hard heel or toe turn the force you place on your straps and highback is transferred directly to your edge through the hanger, kingpin and post. By using the mechanical advantage of this pivot and lever system SkateTech binding are the most responsive bindings in the world. Once on edge, you are locked in.
No Comparison to Traditional Bindings Power is transmitted through the center disk. When you make a hard heel or toe turn on traditional bindings the pressure you place on your straps goes into the fixed center disk and forces the binding baseplate to bend before power is delivered to the edges. Energy is concentrated at the center of the board with traditional rigid baseplates which decreases potential turn power compared to SkateTech bindings.
Comfort Foam Pillow Full length EVA foam footbed that maximizes binding comfort while minimizing foot fatigue. The 3D molded footbed surface offers supreme traction for any boot tread pattern and prevents snow build-up.
Nylon, Recycled Carbon Post The Post attaches the hanger to the kingpin and is the connection between binding and board. Made from nylon and recycled carbon, the post is super light and durable.
Flushcup Technology Free your feet and and feel true surf vibes by riding without a highback on the super deep powder days.
Universal Mounting Disk All Jones bindings include a mounting disc compatible with traditional 4x4 inserts, 2x4, and the EST/Channel mounting system.
Hanger 3.0 New binding hanger design featuring a wider bushing footprint that's closer to the edges for enhanced board connection and faster energy transfer. The Hanger 3.0 is also lighter weight and has a lower inner lateral wall for better ankle mobility and high volume boot fit. Nylon reinforced with 30% fiberglass
FREERIDE VS SURF MODE
Our bindings offer customizable dampening and response by switching between Surf Mode and Freeride Mode. Surf Mode lets you tweak harder, while Freeride Mode keeps you locked in for maximum response. Switch modes by changing the bushings from soft (Surf Mode) to hard (Freeride Mode) and adjusting the Flip-It ankle straps. The Flip-It strap allows you to interchange the ankle straps between the left and right binding to create custom response.
Freeride Mode Position the wide half of the strap above the buckle for more lateral support and board response. Use Hard Bushings for maximum board response.
Surf Mode Position the wide half of the strap below the buckle for solid heel support but more ankle flexibility for getting loose. Use Soft Bushings for a looser, more dynamic surf feel.
