Optimo vs Nitrane
I'm feeling a lot more secure about this binding. The added piece on the toe instead of the webbing makes me feel a lot more secure about it not breaking. The binding itself is a little bit on the stiff side and that could be good depending on your style of riding. I like my bindings a little softer and that is the downside to this binding. Endless setup options. You can configure these bindings to fit practically any boot (in the size range) I'm feeling pretty confident with this binding, not to mention the purple and blue colorway looks sick!
