Comfortable, responsive, light weight
Initial Impressions: I got these bindings as a replacement for my Nitranes. They have a very similar feel to the Nitranes, although they have a touch more heft.
Gear tested with: Ride RFL size 11.5 boots, Machete 162
Conditions ridden in: Light powder, packed powder, *thin* cover
Verdict: These are super comfortable. I barely notice I have them on. I like the wedgie footbeds - you don't really notice it while you're riding them, but if you switch to a friend's board, suddenly you don't feel right anymore. I find that I can ride longer, harder, with less fatigue or discomfort. This is helpful to me because I have a bum knee.
At the same time, I feel highly connected to my board. Anything I want to do, I can do, and I never felt limited by my gear. Even in some real sketch conditions, I still had edge to edge carving and overall edge control. Great bindings, A+.
