So far I'm very happy with these bindings. Super comfortable. Footbeds and Straps seemed to have extra cushion compared to past models.
Responsive, nice mid-flex, made with strong long lasting materials, very comfortable (even after the 1st time I rode'em) I like the extra thickness of the cushion footbeds it helps take a lot of the impact when landing.
These bindings work well in all types of terrains and conditions.
This is the 3 pair of Drake's I've owned and by far the best compared to past models.
Bindings usually last me about 300 days on snow, the only thing I replace once ot twice per season are the straps and buckles, but usually you can buy those for couple of $.
