All of GNU’s bindings offer a reclining highback design and some models feature auto open straps so that when you flip down the highback, the ankle strap magically opens making it easier to get out of.  For dampening, GNU bindings has TPU shock pads, base buffer and a full EVA footbed to make the ride more enjoyable.
