Dalion Watersports Intros Safety Bindings

German startup Dalion Watersports developed what they believe to be the world's first safety binding for water sports.

Around 80,000 athletes are injured annually in kitesurfing alone because their feet remain fixed on the board in the event of a fall.

But, according to Dalion Watersports, these foot injuries are said to be history in the near future.

"We have developed a force-controlled release binding that protects against rotation injuries in the foot area," explains Thomas Lischke, the inventor of the equipment and CEO of Dalion Watersports.

The binding with the patent-pending release mechanism also offers better board control and more stable handling than conventional bindings.
