Initially I LOVED these bindings. They look sick, they feel responsive and perfect and incredible. I rode for about 3 weeks on these getting in about 10 days and then they started to become problematic. The toe strap literally wont release without pulling out the monkey hands. With the addition of snow, which is inevitable obviously, it is incredibly hard to get the strap undone. Luckily, this was on the left toe strap which generally stays strapped the whole day as im regular, so I looked over this. Then this past weekend up in VT, I came of a jump pulling up on my back foot for a 360, and the strap basically tore in half. Where the strap meets the hardware to hold the strap, the plastic was cracked in half. Luckily I was able to jimmyrig it and ride the rest of the day, but esh definitely returning these guys as much as I like their look and feel. If you ride much at all, and agressive at all, I would recommend over looking these and going for maybe the cartels.
