Didnt like em
I got a pair of these on sale (new for
$90) rode them four days and decided to get them off my board (sold em for $70).
Biggest issue I had was that the toe area of the foot bed was too wide, I got lots of play up there no matter how tight I ratcheted down the toe cap. The ratchet while durable (I like the plastic coated aluminum) did not hold the ladder the best, and the release lever is in a bad spot, many times after tightening down my hand would hit the release lever and I would have to retighten. They are an aluminum base but bulky and heavy. The leather ankle strap looks nice and even extravagant but at the end of the day left my ankle sore. Straps seemed heavy over stuffed and inflexible. I found it difficult to mount these binders on the board with the rubber dampening mat in place, and further the fact that the mat comes off made them feel cheap. Looks can be deceiving. When looking for new binders leave these on the shelf.
