I wore these bindings a total of 6 days, and on the day of their death, I was riding down a black diamond and they cracked and brok off my board. Luckily I did not get hurt, but I had to get ski patrol to sled me down the steep mountain since it was un-walkable. Not sure if it was just crappy plastic, or poorly made... but this is definitely something to be wary of. Got lots of compliments tho when they worked ! Ekk- DONT BUY!!
