This year's Lexas are AMAZING! I love all of the new features and adjustments, especially the redesigned toe cap. The soft rubbery material on the outside edges provides excellent grip without applying any uncomfortable pressure on your toes. I ride a lot of steeps and I like my bindings to be super responsive. I usually ratchet down my straps as tight as physically possible and with most other bindings this causes weird pressure points and discomfort after a few hours. Not with this year's Lexas!! They are seriously the most comfortable bindings I have ever ridden. If you want a responsive binding that doesn't kill your feet, look no further!
