Here you will find the most important answers to the most frequently asked questions about the CLEW binding and about us.

General questions

CLEW  is a young company from Munich that was founded in 2019 by three former students and enthusiastic snowboarders. CLEW develops, produces, markets, and sells products from the action and boardsports sector and is particularly known in the industry for its innovative "CLEW step-in snowboard bindings". 

You can write to us at any time by email at support@clew.de, or dm us at instagram or Facebook. 

We are proud to be the only snowboard binding that is 'Made in Germany'. Our assembly takes place in Miesbach, close to Munich. Most of our individual parts also come from Germany.

The first time you use it, you enter the CLEW binding just like a traditional ratchet binding. This makes the binding perfectly adjusted to your soft boot. When you arrive at the lift, you simply pull on the red handle on the back of the binding (highback) and step out with it. When you are good to go step whit the tip of your boot into the front part of the binding (toe strap) and then step on the heel. That's it ;-)

Johannes, Founder and CEO explains in the video what you should pay attention to when mounting and how to properly adjust the binding.


Of course, this happens when snowboarding. If there is a lot of snow, we recommend removing as much as possible from the step surface by shaking or wiping briefly.   It is also very easy to snap into place in the snow. For this purpose, the CLEW binding is equipped with a particularly snow and ice-proof guide and several locking steps.

The CLEW Combi-Disc (included) is compatible with the most common snowboard screw connections (Channel, 4x4 and 2x4).

Our combi disc is not designed for the "3D" pattern. If you are using a board with this hole pattern, you can easily add the matching 3D disc when ordering.

For the CLEW binding you can use your own soft boots, no matter which brand. You just have to make sure that you choose the right binding size.

You can use our binding anywhere in the snow. With the hard 'Flex' you get an optimal riding experience on the slopes and in deep snow. Less sitting, more riding ;)

The highback has a sole component made of an abrasion-resistant TPU material on the bottom side (the same material as most boot soles). The material offers properties comparable to those of the shoe soles in newer ski boots.

No, our click system does not trigger in the event of a fall. Our binding is continuously tested and used by professional riders.
