Be comfortable without compromising performance. The Mad Jacks Binding Snowboard Boot Conversion – Fits into Ski Bindings is a patented device that morphs your snowboard boot onto a standard ski release binding. This Mad Jack binding allows you to use snowboard boots with the added safety of stepping into existing ski release bindings that you already have on your skiboards.
The MadJacks is a simple idea. The MadJacks adapts your snowboard boot to a standard ski binding. Once you are in your comfy snowboard boots, step into your MadJacks and then into your ski binding Off you go for a great day of comfortable skiboarding. Oh, and when your head in for lunch or back to the lodge at the end of the day, step out of your MadJacks and no more walking in ski boots.
NOTE: These bindings do mount directly to skiboards but step into existing pre-mounted ski bindings. This brings release capability when using snowboard boots with skiboards.
Does the MadJacks work with any brand of snowboard boot? Absolutely, Mad Jacks is universal with all brands, including those that use single boa technology.
Does the back support of the MadJacks lock into place? The MadJacks uses an industry unique system to keep the back support from rotating backward providing the leverage you need for performance. In addition, the ankle and calf strap create a “cinching” mechanism around the snowboard boot. The MadJacks and your snowboard boot generate all the stiffness you need.
SKIBOARDS do not require a stiff forward flex, just firm support for side-to-side carving. The MADJACKS was designed with a moderate and comfortable flex that allows you to ride skiboards with excellent responsiveness. And because they wrap around your snowboard boot, these will you with great performance.
Is the MadJacks Safe? Yes, the MadJacks is designed to all ISO and ASTM standards related to alpine ski boot geometry (ISO 5355). The MadJacks has also passed release testing. As such, the MadJacks with a standard snowboard boot behaves like a standard alpine ski boot.
Will I need to adjust my bindings? Maybe, but only just a little. The snowboard boot/MadJacks combo is normally a bit longer than the size ski boot you would wear. However, the difference is relatively small and you should only have to adjust your bindings a small amount. You should not have to re-mount your bindings.
Designed to be used with all skiboards with ski release bindings!
“MadJacks are AWESOME! Honestly, they totally changed my attitude about skiing. I always went along just waiting till my toes got uncomfortable, cold and numb and I was just plain tired. These bindings made a huge difference — plus, I just felt cool having something no one else had.” — BLAIR SACHS HANEWALL, SEATTLE, WA
“I patrol with a snowboard but I want to use my skis as well. Unfortunately after wearing snowboard boots for 20 years I can’t stand the thought of putting on the ski boots for up to 10 hours a day. Thank you MadJacks!” — ROD SCHMIDT, SKI PATROL, MT CREEK, NJ
