Bon Hiver snowboard binding recall

Bon Hiver bindings sold from November to December of 2012 are being voluntarily recalled by Bon Hiver.  The bindings were made in China and sold here in the $260 to $350 dollar range.  There have been no injury reports, but two bindings have broken under use.  The potential for more “fractures from impact” pose a fall risk for snowboarders, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The Bon Hiver binding system is an evolutionary product that allows riders to lock in hands free from the lift or on the fly.  The binding is a cam based system that requires a twist to engage.  A series of magnets help you orient your foot.  The new binding eliminates the constant bending over to attach binding straps.
The consumer number to call is: 877-456-2320.
