    Significance and Use

    4.1 This test method is intended for use in evaluating the binding to snowboard insert retention strength resulting from use. This test method may also be used to compare the durability of different materials and designs. This test method references ISO 10958-2, which is considered satisfactory for acceptance testing insert retention for snowboards.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the requirements and test method for snowboards with channel-mounting systems on which bindings are attached to the board by means of a removable insert and screws.

    1.2 This test method does not apply to snowboards for children with a mass less than 25 kg. It contains data for the manufacturer of snowboards, bindings, and retention devices concerning dimensions, tests, and other specifications for the binding mounting area.

    1.3 For snowboards with fixed inserts, see ISO 10958-2.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
