About Mike's Overall Binding
About the MOB
The company, Mike Mosley Productions, LLC, dba Mike's Overall Binding, was launched to develop and market a releasable binding system. The goal is to improve the safe release from water skis and wake boards, ultimately, helping to reduce injuries. The company is lead by Mike Mosley, a national water ski competitor with 40 years of involvement within the sport and the water sports industry.
As the use of hard shell, or boot style bindings, has become more popular for water-skiing and wake boarding, injury has become more of a concern also. We recognize the need for a more reliable mechanical release system. As an early adopter of hard shells and a releasable system, Mike has been skiing with his system for 20 years. The original system was developed by A.R.C. in the early 1990’s based on a popular snow ski boot released mechanism that is still in use today. Over the years, Mike continued to use this system, improve the main parts of the release system, and adapted it to newer style boots. The MOB system is the latest design by Mike, based on this original system, but incorporating a more versatile boot mount system, and a composite material boot plate, which provides better flex characteristics and lower profile.
