Learn how to install the new 2014 Mercury pad/strap from Best Kiteboarding. The Mercury pad/strap combo takes everything we’ve learnt about riding comfort and board control during the last decade and wraps in up in a package that combines support, comfort and infinite adjustability to create a strap and pad combo that’s as comfortable as your favorite sneakers.
The Mercury uses our Sneaker Fit, dual Velcro strap closure system to give you infinite adjustability to find the perfect fit for the way that you ride. Our unique reinforced wakestyle baseplate fits to inline and offset inserts giving you total control over your stance width and stance offset angles to ensure perfect control and day long riding comfort. The Padlock strap mounting system assembles and disassembles in second making in a breeze to swap your set-up between boards and makes it the perfect travelling companion for the long haul.
An Anatomic Footbed with toe bar grip, medial button and a raised mid-foot arch provides lasting comfort. A triple density EVA foam footbed will help you to stomp your heaviest landing. If you want the comfort of your favourite sneakers when you kite and prefer the easy adjustability of a strap/pad combo over full bindings then it’s time to step into comfort with the Mercury pad/strap combo
