Ride SPI Snowboard Binding - 2010
Leave your mark on The Wall.

I had the RIDE NRC bindings last season which sold me on buying the SPI's this season. I like the bindings but just like the reviewer below, I've been having issues with the toe straps coming loose. Overall, they're a hard responsive binding and I like flexible toe strap (despite them coming loose).

The SPI has been a staple of Rides binding line up for quite some time now and for good reason. If it ain't broke don't fix it! Sure, it's gotten upgrades over the years, but the basic concept behind this binding has stayed the same. Build a binding that do just about everything. With the Custom Flex ankle strap you can literally go from a minimal flex to a cushy soft ankle strap in a matter of seconds with no tools giving you the instant option to dial the binding into your terrain and riding style! One of the many reasons that the over the years the SPI has developed an almost cult-like following. Once people get a pair they are hard to convince to try anything else!

I really wanted to like these. Bought 2009/10 version before riding 15 days in NZ 2010 summer. Cool toe strap and all, but on the mountain the straps kept coming loose and often the ratchets wouldn't engage. The bling on the backs fell off on the second day but I care less. Super stiff when they were locked down, which is nice for the technical stuff but just not reliable and inspired zero confidence. Returned to REI and won't buy Ride again. Not sure which brand to ride this winter at mammoth...thinking Union's, Technine, or maybe give Burton a shot again.

These are super responsive bindings and pretty comfortable but nothing about them made me that stoked on them. More of a freeride binding than a freestyle binding becase there isn't must play to metal.
Sizing: I wore a size 11.5 Prion and def needed the XL
Pro:Responsive, wedgie footbeds
Con: Not playful enough to be called all mountain
