Medium to firm responsiveness, increasing the feedback a rider gets from the board and bindings. Its gel cushioning system for hard landings makes this a must for free-styling. Bindings run true to boot size.
For channel system boards only. Dial-in highback adjustment system may be a little confusing for newer users.
Very comfortable bindings that can be adjusted for a traditional or a toe-cap fit. Very responsive on groomed trails. Can fit the Burton 3D snowboard binding pattern.
Takes a good deal of time to adjust for comfort. Not as easy to slip in and out of as a clicker system. Tight-fitting toe box. Will not fit on a channel system snowboard.
2-strap, freestyle system with a very stiff highback for outside-the-park riding. Comfortable upper strap blends well with a firm toe cap. Eminently adjustable to provide optimal fit.
The ratchet buckle may be a weak point in these bindings. Fewer bells and whistles, which may be a good thing, though inexperienced riders may have trouble making fit adjustments.
Rear-entry binding is slightly less stiff than other all-mountains, and faster to step into. 2-strap system offers fast adjustment. Hold up well to a full season of abuse.
Sizing runs a bit small, so riders with shoe sizes near the top of the binder’s size should consider choosing one size up. Included instructions are not very helpful.
Tool-free, forward lean adjustment speeds up the process of getting a proper fit. Comfy straps that don’t create pressure points and are easy to secure even in heavy gloves. Mid-range flex rating makes these bindings a good choice for on or off trail rides.
Limited mounting hardware included. Binding may be too stiff for inexperienced riders. Adjusting to the perfect fit may take a few tries, plus a few trial runs.
