This binder rules. I dont know what that guy is doing(dave s) where his footpad melts to the what??? if you are a normal person and and are not reentering the atmosphere this binder will rock for you. Great overall comfort due to the fine tune adjustments.Hey dumbass you need to check your hardware if you are getting rad.

Is the toe strap a capped strap? Are the straps quick release? Thanks!
It is kind of a toe cap/strap hybrid. You can rock it a variety of ways. The buckles release like any other binding, with ease.
I got these in october and at first they rocked but a quarter way through the year i tighten them up and after one run the screws are loose terrible binding
I've put 40-50 days in since I got my 2012 XL Ride EX's, and I know that's above average usage, but these bindings can't stand up to punishment.
The feel is excellent. The low highbacks feel secure and confortable, and the metal frame is really light and sturdy. The fit is pretty tight, with medium flex.
A number of components have failed on these, though. The "quickdraw" ratchet (total b.s.) requires nothing less than a well placed karate chop to release. The right toe and heel strap ratchets are on the verge of totally failing. Also the gel mesh on the toe straps will fray and rip from normal usage, so you're a little screwed (sorry). The footpad will melt and rip and stick to your board. The metal components (screws/ washers/ discs) have experienced alot of rust. And finally if you have big feet, the toe strap tends to pinch in the toe of your boot and can cause some minor digit squishing.
These are light and strong, but definitely NOT durable.
right before i bought em i found some reviews saying the bindings wouldnt stay tightened to the board but i have yet to have any problems with this. i ride pretty hard some times and shed it up in the park and these bindings have been able to keep up.
Good All Mountain
I upgraded to the new 2011 EXs from an old pair of cheap Drakes (forget the model name). I have noticed a huge difference. The wedgie technology relieves stress on my legs and the bindings are just all around more sturdy than my previous pair. There is just enough stiffness to do a little bit of everything. Great choice for the price and with the aluminum chassis they will last a long time.
Great all around bindings
These lasted me 3 years until I bought RIDE Revolts. I actually sold my old EXs to my friend and he's still using them. Goes to show they are extremely durable. The alumimum plating helps provide durability as well as comfort. Very happy with ride's products thus far.

Union flite or Ride EX? I'm riding a 155 winterstick and k2 curfew boots. I'm an all mountain guy, up to like 30 footers.
I got the ride deltas and they are great. tons of control light weight and comfy with the wedgie footbeds.
The EX has been killing it for years. Reliable with the chassis and heel cup lifetime warranty, versatile diagonal heel cup adjustment and convertible Thin Grip toe strap. Wedgie Footbeds to keep you're joints aligned and comfortable while hitting the mountain hard.
Can't be beat and the price makes you want to buy two colorways. Enjoy your season with these gems.
