Below is a quick overview of the 2021 NOW snowboard bindings collection.
First I will take a look at any new bindings for the 2020-21 season, and any old 2019-20 bindings that aren't returning with a 2021 model.
Then I'll look at each binding and put them into the categories where I see them fitting best.

The new bindings for 2020-21 are:

The 2020 bindings that aren't returning with a 2021 model:
All 2021 NOW Bindings by Category
I have categorized NOW's 2020-21 collection below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how NOW labels them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
NOW BEGINNER BINDINGS
NOW PARK/FREESTYLE BINDINGS
NOW ALL-MOUNTAIN BINDINGS
NOW ALL-MOUNTAIN FREERIDE BINDINGS
NOW FREERIDE BINDINGS
NOW YOUTH BINDINGS
So there you have the 2021 NOW snowboard bindings.
Not a lot of changes with the lineup, but the B Line comes in as the softest flexing binding in their line to date. The Captain X Fin came in for last season, but isn't returning, so was just a one off for the 2020 model. And it looks like the Select isn't going to be an option anymore - which is essentially the Select Pro, without the pro kit (which includes Kingpin tech, extra bushings and an interchangeable highcup (to make them highback-less bindings)).
I had the privilege of testing some 2021 NOW bindings last season and I'll release my reviews for those throughout the year. Check out the link below for all of Snowboarding Profiles' NOW reviews.
