Hyperlite System Wake
/ Kite Bindings :
The Hyperlite System Binding
launches a revolution in water sports footwear. Designed specifically
for use with the all-new Hyperlite System Boots, you can now
get into and out of your wake or kiteboard with ease and without
having to take your boots off!
The Hyperlite System marks the dawn of a whole
new philosophy in wake footwear design. Since the first bungee
binding, wakeboard boots have always faced an inherent design
flaw - coupling a rigid plastic plate and a soft textile upper.
This meant a sacrifice always had to be made in either support
and durability, or comfort, fit, and range of motion.
The new Hyperlite System Binding separates
the traditional design creating a comfortable and lightweight
water specific boot, free from any hard internal plastic or
heavy plates. The separate external binding then supplies
all of the strength and support a rider could ever need, in
a much stronger and more durable package.
This new design philosophy finally creates
a pair of boots that fit and perform like athletic footwear
and a separate supportive chassis that gives a locked-in feel
and responsive ride.
Hyperlite's new design philosophy allows them
to build unmatched strength, support, and response into the
binding itself without sacrificing comfort.
The new System Binding features full GX3 construction
making it lightweight and extremely strong. The articulating
highback allows for greater support and moves with a rider’s
leg to ensure a full range of rear motion.
The adjustable ankle and toe straps are built
with maximum retention in mind without creating unwanted pressure
The System Binding also features an underfoot
bridge that connects the side walls of the chassis, creating
a torsionally strong construction that won’t twist or
lift. This feature also allows a rider to stand directly on
the deck of the board creating an unmatched rider to board
Together the System binding transfers a rider’s
energy directly to the board creating the most responsive
ride in wakeboarding.

if a rider is looking for more or less flexion in the highback.

Please note these are the factory fit recommendations.
Individual riders preferences may vary. Due to the design
of the chassis and toe strap there will be a small gap between
the inside leading edge of the boot outsole and the lower
area of the toe strap. This natural gap in no way affects
the boot retention.
The System features a Strata specific mounting interface.
This can be utilized by using the shorter Phillips head screws
and Claw hardware marked “L” and” R”.
This mounting location greatly reduces heel and toe lift by
putting the anchor point directly under the rider’s
*Remember the System binding
is designed to work exclusively with the Hyperlite System
Boot line. Both components are needed for use but are available
as a separate items.
Why go to 6"
Wakeboard Boot Plates?
6” patterns are now standard on many bindings and boards.
6” binding plates are lighter, stronger and have less
torsional flex. The System binding can be mounted to a traditional
6” wakeboard insert pattern by using the longer Phillips
head screws and larger Claw hardware. This
method uses the outermost Claw tracks set at a 6” offset.
* Riders can choose to use both inside and
outside mounting locations on Strata track boards. Four additional
Strata track t-nuts will be required.
You have 6”
binding plates and a wake or board with an 8” hole pattern.
Are they compatible?
Yes, Liquid Force, CWB and Ronix have binding plate extenders
that allow you the full range of stance options.
How do I measure my
Wakeboard Insert Spread refers to the hole pattern on your
wakeboard or kiteboard. It is the distance from any hole in
the outer group of holes to the corresponding hole in the
inner group for each boot mounting area (either Left or Right).
Both Hyperlite Strata and Slingshot Fastrack Mounting Systems
have infinite stance options.
Hyperlite Marek System
The Hyperlite System Boots 2011 are built like true footwear
so their fit is different from traditional voluminous wake
boots. The initial impression of the System boot fit should
be more like that of an athletic shoe, snug and supportive.
By reducing the internal volume and slop we greatly reduce
foot movement inside the boot. This translates into superior
board control and response. Because a System boot does not
have the internal plastic components preventing it to tighten,
a rider does not need to cinch the laces down as tight as
a traditional boot. The System Binding also provides the retention
so if a rider prefers a little more flexion in the upper zone
they can achieve this by loosening the laces in that zone.
The Hyperlite fit is on the smaller side, roughly a ½
size. We encourage customers to try out the next size up that
corresponds to their actual foot size and not that of traditional
wake boots they have used in the past.
