How come some bindings have three straps?

Three is Better than Two

Three-strap snowboard bindings feature an additional strap that fastens around the rider's shin. This third strap provides more support and leverage to tilt the board on the toe edge.

You may like this feature if you have been as skier and are used to greater stabilization, or if you enjoy the comfort of a soft boot, but want the control while carving at higher speeds.
