Ive been riding Burton Cartels since I first got serious into snowboarding. This year I decided to change things up, and have read 1000's of reviews on these things and they were everything I expected and more. With other bindings, you can tell when you've tightened them too much because you can feel it in certain pressure points; not true with the 390's. These bindings have no pressure points, they are the absolute best binding I have ever ridden. The ease of adjusting the straps requires no tools, so quick adjustments on the mountain are a breeze. This years ankle strap has an enormous amount of gel in it making it one of the comfiest out there. There is also a strap that keeps the ankle strap pulled away so when your stepping into your binding after the chair lift the strap isn't in the way. Try them out now, if you don't like them, Dog Funk's return policy is the best. You have nothing to lose.
