The Illusion 400 binding is a traditional snowboard binding to go anywhere: piste, off-piste and even snow parks - because it has a short yet stiff highback, giving good rear support for backside tricks as well as ankle mobility during spins.
Turn Strap System : the strap is mounted onto a hinge, which allows it to turn inwards when you lift your foot. When putting your boots on, the space is therefore free to introduce the boot in the binding without any problem. This also prevents the strap and hooks from being crushed by the boot when stepping in.
The factory settings suit most people. However you can adjust the following to suit your needs: - the position of the highback (front/rear/side) by moving the position of the screws that hold the highback - the length of the gas pedal, particularly useful for large feet
What is the stance on the snowboard?
The stance represents the space between the 2 bindings in cm. To be adapted to your body shape, but it is worth noting that all the snowboards have a recommended position for the bindings ("recommended stance", indicated by a marker between the inserts of the bindings). If you need to widen or bring together your feet on the boars, test to see if it is better.
How do I change the spacing of my feet on the board?
For piste - off-piste boards, when bringing the feet closer together, it is preferable to move the front binding back and, when moving the feet apart, it is preferable to move the rear binding back. The aim is stay further back to complete successful turns and float on powder snow. For freestyle boards (symmetrical), move the 2 bindings to remain on the centre of the board.
At which angle do I place my snowboard bindings?
For on-piste/freeriding use, we recommend +18° at the front, and 0° at the rear. For versatile freestyle use, go for +18° and -6°. The openness of the rear foot gives more flexibility when riding switch. For pure freestyle use, feel free to opt for entirely symmetrical angles, e.g. +15° and -15°. Binding angles are very much a matter of personal choice. Feel free to check out what others are doing and try out different options. You may be pleasantly surprised!
Don't forget to centre your boots on the board!
The disc bindings with 4 screws, generally, can be placed in multiple positions. This setting is used to centre the boot on the snowboard and prevent the foot from protruding too far. The boot must therefore protrude from the board by an equal amount on both sides. The disc can also be rotated through 90° to alter the stance width in relation to the width set by the inserts. In this case, there is no option to centre the bindings laterally.
Which size should I choose for my snowboard bindings?
For illusion 400 bindings, we recommend: M = 4 to 8 / L = 8 to 12.5. Like trying on a pair of shoes, we strongly recommend trying on the bindings with your own snowboard boots because the sizes may vary between the different brands.

I bought these for my son who is 6'5" and has size 12 feet. He found they fitted the board and his boots well, and were very secure when riding.
