good not great
ok the highback is awesome but the base just isnt as comfortable as they say and it rippes up a little also so on the whole there good BUT NOT GREAT
Very good binding
I really like these bindings - currently have them on my LibTech Skunk Ape 169. Took a half day to adjust to get them dialed in. My only gripe, and it is minimal, is that I like my bindings really tight, but these tend to slip when cranking them down about one or two clicks away from where I really want them. Maybe it has to do with the plastic ratcheting system, as I noticed that aluminum is not used on these, though it was on my old Ride bindings. Thus, I have just a tad bit of boot slip, though hardly noticeable. Who knows, maybe this is the way it is supposed to be anyway. Plus, I have huge feet (Size 15), and that may be the issue. In any case, I'd definately recommend these to others looking for a quality binding.
The perfect do-it-all binding
I am a rider who likes to tackle everything the mountain has to offer. I'm a real perfectionist in riding techniques, and also when it comes to choose the right gear. Heck, I even build my own boards (they're nice :). In 20+ years of riding, I've found Burton bindings to be my favourite. The Burton CO2s are the best bindings I have ever tried. They are the most comfy, most responsive bindings with just the right flex to do anything, everywhere with confidence and style. They are just perfect for riding the park, and they perform equally well in steep and deep conditions. They are anatomically shaped, lightweight, and easy to handle. The price may be a little steep, but you will love these bindings, period. Almost as good: Cartels (and way more affordable...) Also can't wait to try the Exiles and Infidels :)
To Disagree with John a little..
I got these bindings at the end of last season as well, personally i absolutely love them (coming from burton customs) they're my second set of bindings so i haven't extensively ridden on other bindings, i have used friends boards etc...
but i think they are supposed to feel "loose" in a way that they don't create pressure points, i think they are designed so that it feels like there is nothing there but whenever you put in every little input your board responds, the gel cushioning is most likely to blame, but also the well placed straps (if you fitted them correctly).
My friends said i rode a hell of a lot harder than usual when i put these on my board, i guess that would explain why i was so tired earlier than usual. The supreme control on top of the shock absorbing base plates... hitting something, or dropping off of a small ride of some sort, landing flat expecting a little sting all of a sudden felt like nothing.
I love them, i'm very pleased with my investment in them, especially because i got them 50% off when i bought them.
the better color option
Great, not the best
I just got these after riding a pair of drake F60s for about 3 years. Compared to those straps, these seem incredible. Dont be mistaken, they feel kinda cheap but handle great. Ive ridden about 15 days on them so far, theyve been amazing. Ive had NO problems, great customization options, very tight ratchets (for those of you who dislike circulation like me) and good response. Riding both the park and the deep steeps, they are definitely more of a park binding due to the flex (plastic construction) but they do handle well in the cascade concrete of mt baker. recommended.
Still on the Fence
I got these late last season hoping for the end-all do-it-all binding that its hyped up as...Honestly, theyre well built and packed with techy features and very plush straps. I rode em about 6 times in different conditions and all I could really think of is I wish I could get em tighter- They just feel kinda sloppy, I like my bindings pretty stiff and these just felt loose and soft. Thats partially due to the gel cushioning of the footbed and the baseplate i think but i'll stick with my K2 autos and maybe rock these on my spare.
