Ride Ex bindings chrome 2012/2013
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have last years version of these bindings in the chrome. They are very light. The base is T-6061 aluminum. The ratchets are big and easy to use even with your mitts on. The toe buckle material looks a bit chintzy but it is soft and even in cold weather it manages to hold your foot very securely. The forward lean adjustment is tool free as are all the other major adjustments on this binding. I cranked the forward lean all the way forward and I definitely think Ride could have offered even more lean so I was somewhat disappointed but it works. I am a size 9 Burton boot and I went with the large binding per Ride's size recommendation but I know I could easily have gone with a medium bindings. I have a lot of excess strap on the Large bindings. The high back on this binding is very comfortable but it is white so it was dirt stained pretty much after the first ride. These are really light and comfortable binding. I have only used them about a handful of time so I cannot speak of its durability but I will edit this after the end of season. I am pretty much an all mountain freerider so these only spend about 10% of the day in the park but I definitely include quite a lot of flatland and natural terrain tricks in my riding quiver and so far these bindings have not disappointed. My only major complaint is that sometimes I can feel my boot move even with these things cranked all the way down. This might be due to the fact that a size 9 fits a medium binding as well as a large binding but either way that should not matter. They should be tighter! I will definitely be tweaking the base plate adjustment.
