This is the original boss of bindings, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. The new conform grip toe cap is the best toe cap / strap I've ever ridden, hands down. It's rubberized for a no slip fit that will conform to any style of boot. I rock the 2.0 Cants which reduce reduce knee fatigue after a long day of shred. These things won't let you down, plus they have a 2 year warranty and you will never pay for parts, ever.
