Okay so I would like to start by saying i have not rode these bindings yet, but i do not plan on doing so either. I had a few major turn offs for these bindings. The baseplate is probably 75% hard plastic. These are very poorly padded. Also there is about a 1 inch gap between my boot and the side of the binding, they are very wide for some reason. The padding on the high back seems like it could be easily ripped off and the symbol on the back is already coming off. These are HEAVY! my sub pop was as light as a feather but with these bindings on it it weighs 10+ pounds. Ridiculous i know. They look good though, Technine does a good job at that as always. 2nd pair of Technines i was not pleased with i defiantly will never purchase their bindings again. A good suggestion is Flux bindings.
