Ordered these bindings to replace my old CTS pair that treated me well and at first I was very disappointed. The ratchet would stick and the padding on the toe strap started to crack within a week. Returned for a replacement and so far, so good. Love the no buckle toe strap and the white color looks sick. Only downside is the cable slips off the hook in the back and doesn't always snap tight, but it's an easy fix and when the cable isn't hooked in it allows the binding to lie flat (which is good for travel). Plan on sticking with em until something else goes wrong, but K2 locked me in with the step-in and I don't know if I can ever go back.
