have about 35 days on these this year; i'm 6'-1", 205 lbs, size 12 boot. @ age 50, there's no air time for me, just high speed carved turns, & the occasional deep pow day. (mostly east coast riding, 5-7 days a yr out west).
unreal control. nice & stiff. pretty light (for a ride binding.) adjustability is a big plus for me; I have flat feet & as a result pronate pretty badly. the ability to adjust the canting via the adjustable footbed is a big plus, taking the pressure off the inside of my knees. defiantly feel more balanced on the board as a result.
haven't had any issues with durability so far. it's all good!
Solid construction, yet relatively light. Excellent customization....more than Burton bindings, but I understand some reviewers were stuck in the "Burton mindset" and finally got freed from their prison. Ratchets are not the most user friendly, but I spend most of my time shredding, not ratcheting in.Great padding to stomp landings off bumps, cornices, cliffs, etc. Canting makes spreading my stance 3" like nothing, also reducing my boot-out as I wear US 11.5 boots. AMAZING response from this binding....gives an honest feel under foot of what a real binding is like, not a sloppy park feel. Learn to set it up for your riding and your edge-to-edge transitions will be lightning fast and your edges will dig in and hold forever. Really soft strap setup that can be customized to you as well. All around great binding, but contrary CADs are NOT the most adjustable binding: www.Catek.com if you need FR2's (I have a pair of those as well).
If you really need to dial in your stance, get them. The adjustable footbed lets you get this things right where you want them. A spring in one of the ratchets broke off on mine, but that's easily replaced.
eh, they're sweet
i bought a pair of these last year. they are pretty light, very, very adjustable, and are really pretty stiff. they seem stable and responsive, i really like them, but the one problem i have is the plastic ratchet handle thingys broke off. these are sick, especially for all mountain stuff but the plastic things put me off a little bit
For bombers only
These bindings are extremely responsive edge to edge for those who are only concerned with high speed bombing down the steep stuff. Since they offer almost no flex, I would stay away if you're a park rat who wants tweakability and honest feedback from underfoot. The the fully padded carbon footbed is surprisingly comfortable for absorbing hard landings and they soak up a lot of the imperfections on the snow surface. Being my first aluminum binding, I can honestly say I will never go back to a composite binding system every again.
A couple gripes I have about this binding is the fact that compared to Burton's bindings, it is aesthetically and functionally less refined. The ratchets are clunky compared to Burton's smooth glides. Setup and adjustment is a tedious and difficult process because this binding is very mechanical, with many hardware parts and screws that are difficult to reassemble.
Despite some of the less refined creature comforts, the performance of this binding is amazing.
I like em
So I stopped buying Burton a while back when I realized that you where paying more just for the name. To compare I had Burton Missions and P1's in the past. (All where pretty good). My wife bought me these bindings back in January and I've used them about 6 times since then. They are so adjustable it's sick. But that can also be the drawback, There are so many little tweaks that I spent the first day going back to the tuning bench and changing the gas pedal, or adjusting the toe caps, or altering the tilt...Frankly it pissed me off. That being said, once I got them dialed in, they've been great. If you have been riding on sucky bindings, you'll be in for a shock at how different they will feel and respond. I would say if you are really into customizing your stance and riding style go for these, otherwise goe with a lesser priced model like the SPi. Overall I'm pretty happy.
Are these bindings heavy compared to an...
Are these bindings heavy compared to an average binding like say Burton Cartels?
I can't honestly tell much of a difference.
Looking for a binding that is incredibly durable? Super stiff for that Big mountain ride/All-terrain kinda ride? How about a binding that tilts? Ya.. I said tilts!!! This is one of the only binding I know that has a solid foot bed that tilts. It will be super easy on your ankles on those 7ft + Jumps at Park City. How about the knees? You want to keep those too right? This tilting foot bed will help with the strain and pressure on them too! have bad ankles and knees or dont wanna have them in the future? Tah Dah!
I use the XL size. And I use the 32 Lashed boot size 10. 32 lashed is a bulky boot so it fits perfectly. If you notice the front toe strap? There is a stretchy moldable indestructible webbing! Yep they stole that damn stuff from Spidey himself. So it will go over the toe and mold around the toe like a cap binding. So you can ride how you prefer! You wouldn't waste your time on a girls who cant respond right? So why waste your time on any other binding? Oh and the weight on these per pair is 4.78lbs.
CAD is excellent binding. Very easy to to get on and off. The stiffness makes your board very responsive. Great looking binding.
