The Alpha has been a long time favorite of mine. The Mobility Thinflex ankle strap is the most comfortable strap Ride makes in my opinion. If we are at a demo and I get a chance to take some hot laps, I'll almost always toss a pair of Alpha's on whatever board I'm riding. And the new Stealth RS Highback is hands down the best combination of comfort/response I have ever felt from a highback, ever. A nice amount of support down low and a nice flexy top make this binding a perfect all mountain ripper. And what about Wedgie footbeds?! Direct power transfer x10. They make riding so much easier which means you can ride harder, longer.
