Bon Hiver Snowboard Binding Recall

bon hiver recalled freebase snowboard binding bro!Bon Hiver has announced the recall of their Freebase Snowboard bindings sold between November 2011 and December 2011. The binding's base plate can fracture from impact during use, posing a fall hazard to snowboarders. They have only received two reports of failures, but that's significant given that only 200 were sold. Maybe one pair belonged to the snowboarder making the 50+ foot huck in the picture above.
