The Curated Take
Whenever I get a new board, I like to get the matching bindings. When I purchased my Jones All-Mountain Twin, I wanted something that felt surfy but also gave me great edge control.
Enter the Jones Mercury, an awesome Medium-Stiff binding that is surprisingly comfortable. The Skate Tech feel gives the binding a more mellow feel when leaning forward and backwards on the tip and tail. This makes it great for butters, presses, and makes the binding less fatiguing when leaning back in the powder. Normally, bindings with this feel are permanently soft, but that is where the Mercury shines. It still has great edge control and efficient energy transfer from the heel side to the toe side. The binding does this by concentrating your movement on a hinge called the kingpin, definitely a pretty slick design from the team at Jones. If you feel like you need a binding that surfs pow great, holds a good edge, and has all-day comfort, then the Jones Mercury is for you.
- Great for edge control and good support.
- All day comfort.
- Medium/Stiff flex.
- Can be a little too snappy.
The Mercury is designed for expert freestylin' freeriders who need a supremely comfortable and responsive binding with a maneuverable medium stiff flex. The Mercury will respond instantly to your every move thanks to Skatetech technology that transfers your energy directly to your edges. The Mercury's Control Flex highback offers solid support while absorbing chatter and eliminating calf bite. The Mercury can be set up in Surf mode or Freeride mode by switching bushing and interchanging the Power Spine Ankle straps between bindings. The wide bottom section of the Power Spine Ankle Strap is softer for enhanced comfort and the center spine is stiffer for ultimate response. The Mercury also features the Hangar 3.0 which is wider for better boot fit and has an expanded bushing footprint for better energy transfer. The Mercury is fitted with our low-profile 3D Flex Fit 2.0 toe straps that are slightly stretchy to conform to any boot shape.
