Wow, I can't say enough good things about last year's Alpha Movement... Ride really hit the mark on the technical features of this binding. Most notably, the ankle strap is legit! It really does make you feel connected to your board, in fact, it feels like it's not even there, but still gives you support. I let my friend strap into my board and butter around at the end of a park session last season and he was immediately sold, so much so that he bought the new Alpha Movements for this season already. This was my second set of Alpha Movements and I'm definitely going to be picking up a new set for this season also. They are definitely one of the lightest bindings on the market and the tech is bar none. The toe strap is certainly praise worthy also. My main complaint about these bindings, and the reason they don't get a 5 star review is that the glue on the ankle straps didn't hold well enough and the two pieces seperated on both bindings. However, this didn't really affect the overall integrity of the binding as the bolts held the straps together still. It looks as though Ride reworked the ankle strap a little on this year's model though. Lastly, the black and red colorway on this binding is sick.

Last year i got these when they were on sale because i broke my burton customs. i was trying to get away from burton because they were made from plastic. sure enough the only plastic part of these bindings (highback) broke on me. maybe its just a fluke. I also like the feel of the real cap strap and not this cross thing.. overall.. i wouldn't buy them again.. if you want a Ride binding get something cheaper.. they are all essentially the same binding with minor tweaks..

These bindings are hands down, the best bindings I have ever ridden. They are super light, flex well, provide good support, and most importantly (I think) are comfortable. I ride a combo of park and all mountain so I was concerned that these bindings would be too flexible for my use, however, they give decent support and I have been known to lay down a large Euro-carve or two with no problem. The toe strap is sick; you can put it wherever you want on your boot, and it fits well with all different size boots. I was skeptical of the heel strap tho, since it has no padding; however, once again I was surprised at how good it felt. It makes me feel more connected with the board, and I swear it gives me more pop. The ratchets are much better than last years. They slide off effortlessly and never get stuck. This binding is expensive as hell tho, but you get what you pay for. If you ride a lot, it is definitely worth it.
