So I've been able to ride the Flow M9's and now these rear-entry bindings and I have to say these are the better bindings if you're into all-mtn vs park, otherwise, the Flow's have more flex and quicker adjustments. I've been a fan of rear entry bindings ever since I tried the M9's but I was looking for something with quicker response and more stability. The Cinch delivered with a heel cup versus n/a on the M9 and fixed last year's issue of not having an adjustable toe strap. However, it sill lacks tool-less forward lean, unlike the Flow's, which I kind of miss every now and then. They do have a lighter base, better shock absorbers, and they're much easier to strap in traditionally than the Flow's. Honestly, the best thing to do with bindings is to try them and with BC's awesome return policy, you only lose out on shipping even after using them on the mtn. Keep up the great work, guys!

Pros: V-strap is solid, will not break or snap, lightest binding ever, one ratchet is fast to get in/out. Going off kickers is solid.
Cons: Pressure point from where the V-strap comes over the top of the boot. These were the first bindings I had to make it a habit to release the tension once I was down the hill cause I couldn't feel my freakin' Big Toe. Sometimes my boot won't stay in place. I know the 09/10 model has a higher lateral piece to fix that issue.

Tust me, I've owned 4 pairs of bindings within the past 3 seasons, so I know how to dial them in. This one does take a little more time to get them just right but thats not important. Unfortunately, they don't offer a ton of support since they're made for freestyling but the range of motion is great for the park. The landlite footbed does a great job of cushioning. They are not compatible with bigger boots. I wear a size 10 Rome Libertine and bought the Large 9-11 binding. I had to maximize the binding to properly fit my boot and the V-strap is still offset to the side a little. I have no idea how they could fit a size 11.

Overall, I would recommend these only for park and not for all-mtn riding. I actually liked them pretty well and I know that Ride fixed a lot of the small issues for next years model, including a higher lateral piece to keep your foot in place and a longer v-strap to accommodate bigger boots, plus footbed wedgie tech.

I got the drunk edition of this boot and its 10 times better than my first pair of Burton Moto's. no pressure points, the liner is heat moldable, and it comes with 2 pairs of J-bars in case you have skinny ankles or heel lift. The ankle brace is solid and not uncomfortable. I had pressure points on the top of my foot with the Burtons, but not with these. soft-med flex, but didnt notice anything bad with my all-mtn freeriding. I bet they're even comfier once i get them heat molded.
They also fit perfectly with my Flow M9 bindings, the burtons were slightly bigger. The only downside is that they're traditonal lacing, which is good for tightening/slacking an area as opposed to the speed zones or boa's that tighten overall. I've never had to tie them back up while riding either, so the laces work great. Love the Drunk Banana, they look like big skater shoes! It was a toss up between these and the K2 T1's for me. the T1's have an inner boa ankle + trad lacing system that's sick, but these have style! so if you're thinking about buying any other boots...Don't Do It!

It doesn't have a logo on the back it has a really small [AK] logo on the side and it says GORE TEX on the right sleeve but it is other wise nice and crispy clean. It isn't thug long, but it doesn't fit like a belly shirt either. I would say mid thigh is right about where it hits.********Tab, Matt's right on with the description of the jacket. It also has another small Burton AK logo on the bottom right side of the jacket, around 2x2.5 inches. I just got a medium and it fits me perfectly at 6'2", 170 lbs with a 40" chest, 32" waist and 35" sleeves. I originally got a large because of the sleeve length and that came down to mid thigh but then I tried on the medium and the sleeves still fit me and it was more tailored to my chest and waist and sits upper thigh instead of mid. It's Burtons Sig Fit which is not slim but not extremely baggy either. Hope this helps.

Probably the best small-med sized goggle out there. I purchased the white/gold chrome and it comes with a bonus nightstalker blue lens that allows 60% VLT for night riding. The Gold chrome/mirror is the new black, this combo looks bad ass and it only transmits 16% of light. The lenses are dual and the only time I could get them to fog up was by intentionally blowing on them but then they would clear up right away.
The frame is extremely light and more flexible than than the Spy Zed that I was comparing it with. In the end, these were more compatible with my small smith variant helmet than the Zed's and had the extra night lens on top of it. Unfortunately, the medium-large VZ's were too big for me, but those felt really nice also. Even though it didn't have the helmet side clips, it was still helmet compatible and didn't leave a gap.
I'm extremely happy with the purchase and will definitely recommend these as my numero 1 choice for anyone between 51-56cm sized small head.

These are my third pair of bindings I've had so I can compare them to the Burton Mission's and Rome Targa's.
Pros: Highback rotation, great heelside response, rear entry is quick in and out, design and colors are cool, powerstrap works nice and is comfortable.
Cons: the rear entry can get caught in the back of your boot and potentially damage it, cheap paint started chipping away even before I finished mounting it! fortunately its black underneath for the black/white model, Wont work on really big/bulk boots (barely got in my '08 Burton Moto's), base heavy.

Overall, the rear entry setup is nice but it needs some work. If you're just riding down the mtn for fun then you can keep the strap loose and just step in and go but most of the time I have to stop to tighten down the straps anyways. If I tighten them down too much then I cant slide my boot out. This might be an issue with my boot compatibility more than the design tho. I think Im gonna rock them for a little while longer but will probably end up trading them in for some K2 Cinches instead. I've heard those actually push your boot forward into the strap which would solve the biggest issue I have with these bindings. I do like the powerstrap, even though it doesn't have much toe support. They're definitely freeride bindings. Only one foot cushion on the top of the binding. its nowhere near the cushioning and adjustability that the Rome Targa's provide. My final ranking for bindings I've owned so far would go to the Targas 1st, and these are tied with the Missions for 2nd.

love the little guys on here with their flower on one hand and the bat behind their backs on the other! the color scheme's awesome and this hoody is easily a nice designer hoody. It includes thumbsleeves so take that into account when you order w/ sleeve length. I have 35" arms with a 40"chest and got the medium. fits snug but not too tight but shouldve gotten the large. Get this!
