Definition: The baseplate is the bottom portion of a snowboard binding. It is generally made from a plastic composite, although aluminum baseplates do exist. The baseplate connects to the highback to form the main support system of a snowboard binding.
Pronunciation: [beys-pleyt]
I completely wrecked my baseplate when I landed that last jump in the terrain park.
