Maximize your ride time.
Quit fiddling and diddling with your bindings—the Auto Technology on the K2 Uprise Snowboard Binding lets you set it and forget it. One ratchet is all you need to tighten both straps; as you crank down on the ankle, the toe strap claps down around your boot. Ditto for stepping off the board—one flip, and you’re out. K2 bundled a host of advanced features into the Uprise and slapped on some banger graphics by Don Pendleton (just like those on the Fastplant deck) for one sweet ride.
- Lightweight, super-sleek RockLock Highback features an asymmetrical shape to match your natural stance
- Auto chassis offers lightweight performance flex for advanced riders
- Canted footbed angled to match your natural leg position for more control and less fatigue
- Harshmellow shockpads eliminate chatter for a smooth, quiet ride
- Compatible with three-hole and four-hole patterns for maximum flexibility in your setup

Good but not that good
the bindings are great if you are after a quick strap in up the top, but they can be a hassle sometimes to get out of them once at the bottom. Especially in busy lift queues!!
But overall the bindings are good, with just the right amount of flex!
I got these bindings after sending back my brand new Nitrane Contrabands to Dogfunk. While I love the one strap system and have ridden Contrabands for a few years now, the Nitranes wouldn't fit to my boots. The problem with Contrabands is that as the years progress, the toe strap seems to get worse. The only way I see Contrabands getting better is if they take all the new stuff they have thrown into the bindings and keep the original toe strap on it. I got these because I wanted a change up in the one strap system. I was a little skeptical about getting these bindings because I had heard that the toe strap slowly tightens less and less. I have only had these for 2 months now and have only been doing dry-land training, but haven't had any problems with them. They seem to be a good solid binding! They have "canted footbeds" which for me is a MUST after riding Contrabands with them. They are very easy to set up and don't take you an hour or more like the Contrabands did. The harshmellow is a great padding system which works well on their bindings as their boards. I have a K2 Jibpan which has Harshmellow in the board as well. Excellent dampening reduces chatter and keeps you solid at higher speeds. The only thing that scares me about these bindings is that the chassis is plastic and not metal. While the plastic reduces weight, it may not be durable enough. Only time will tell. So far I have found 0 flaws about these bindings. K2 has really stepped up and made some amazing products.
any problems with that new toe strap? it...
any problems with that new toe strap? it looks a little flimsy from the pics. it looks like i might have some problems with keeping those toe strap "slivers" where i want them. but who knows, i haven't seen them in person and they could be great...
I got these bindings a few months back and even I was a little skeptical about getting them. I got these after riding Contrabands for a few years, and they are very similar if not better than Contrabands. The problem I have had with Contrabands is that they have never really tightened down my toes as much as I want. I got the Uprise's because they were a good price and I still wanted the one strap system. After getting them and setting them up to my boots and board, I found them to be an excellent upgrade from my Contra's. They hold down my toes very well and it is a simplistic yet advanced binding. They have canted footbeds like the Contra's which for me, is a MUST! I haven't had a single problem with the toe strap. It is not flimsy, and it is light! The only thing that I am wary about is that the chasis is made of plastic and not metal. While this reduces weight, I will have to see how well they hold up. I wouldn't be skeptical about getting these. If you get them and end up not liking them, send em back to Dogfunk and get a full refund. Hope it all works out for ya!
