Easy to adjust, lightweight and the binding looks great. The fit is pretty close right out of the box which makes it pretty easy to deal with.
Good responsiveness and very comfortable. The straps aren't over-stuffed which makes you over-tighten and cut off your circulation. Rounded baseplates don't create weird pressure points that break snowboards.
Love it! Ride it!

I just got these binders and my initial opinion is they are pretty good. Light as snot. Comfy. Easy in. They do have more of a freestyle/park feel then an all mountain feel, ankle strap is lower then I am used to which makes the ride feel loose or more forgiving.
Set up and performance is amazing, what I would expect from binders at this price point.
These make Flow seem like a joke. The one thing I really didnt like about em is the highback rotation. GNU claims highbacks can be rotated, and they can but not that much, about half as much as I am used to with my Burton Customs. I would like to see more rotation with the high back. I loved that weather permitting I can reach down while strapped in and adjust the forward lean with a few twists of the cable. Ratchet and ladder felt a little cheaper then I am used to but that should not be an issue as this system does not require that you use the ratchet and ladder all that much. I have been ridding for 23 years and in my experience bindings are equipment that rarely gets updated unless you blow them out. I am very happy with this purchase, and hope they last forever. Great binders and great way to keep youre a$$ dry. I like Mervin because they are an innovative company, and these are not a Mervin innovation, they are Fastec bindings and Mervin likes them enough to add them to their product line, this to me was a stamp of approval.

This binding totally works. Had it out 30 to 40 days on the hills, and zero problems. Rock solid hold. Totally consistent. Zero adjustments to the straps after I set them up. I was worried that the highback angle adjustment screw setting might change, but it didn't budge, either. In order to fold the highback down for travel I had to undo one side of the top strap, but I just set it at the mark it was at when I put it back together and that did it. No sweat, same feel, same performance. I have zero complaints about these babies. The gold aluminum base looks gorgeous, too. Going to ride them another year, hopefully with zero problems again, and will report back in a year.
