These are the best bindings I have ever ridden (past experience includes Burton, Ride, other Salomon). They responsive, light, and comfy. REALLY COMFY. My knees used to hurts from old stiff bindings which give no lateral flex. Honestly, I would go for the Relay Pro though if money was at all a concern (I got my XLTs used).
ps. I spend my time on the steeps and in the trees.
