People are always skeptical of new technologies/concepts. I was one too until I tried one in the shop, and once more on the mountain. After a few laps of the park, I was sold! You customize the fit of the toe-strap once and find the right fit. After that it will always revert back to that fit when you tighten the ankle strap. Getting into your bindings twice as fast means you'll be able to hit that jump before the park crew comes down and hogs everything in sight. Not only is the AUTO a great breakthrough in technology, the other features are just as good as "normal" bindings. Lightweight, comfy straps, awesome ratchets, great fit all around. Pick up a pair, you'll love it!
