I brought these as my first bindings thinking Burton was good respected brand, I read the reviews and focused on the positive thinking what happened to others would not apply to me, I was wrong. These binding are a just a waste of money, unless you ride greens all day or you're just a noob that doesn't know any better. The Ratchets SUCK, they get your boots semi tight but start to slip if you attempt any further tightness. The toe strap slips off the boot due to tightness issues as well and the overall quality is laughable, as one person has said, it looks and feels like a cheap toy. Back to the ratchets, if you slip too many times while tightening you will chew the teeth right off, and fast, expect a very limited lifetime if you are foolish enough to purchase. Ride LX /RX or Drake fifties are a superior bindings and highly recommended and competitively priced . Learn from my mistake, not your own!
