I wasn't really a fan of rear entry bindings until I slid my boots into these glorious binders! They are so comfortable and so easy to get on and off. They take a while to dial in the fit perfectly (I spent a half an hour in my living room playing around with them). But they are SO worth it. My skier friends dont have to wait around for me anymore! I guess the only downside is that now you'll have to wait around for your boarder friends! Get Weird!
The basalt/fiberglass combo is very noticeable, in a good way. Super snappy. The elliptical camber and sidecut makes this board incredibly responsive side to side! It is so much fun no matter where i take it!
