these bindings will last forever. solid aluminum base that guarantees response. The straps work exceptionally well. I did not enjoy the heaviness coming from the aluminum. But they are solid, stiff, and responsive. Dont think that rules out the flex tho...Sick bindings to say the least.
Never to late...
Nice easy clips, easy to adjust, as noted from others these bindings are very responsive. the only downer is they ate away at my boots so id reccomend getting a harder boot. ive got soft swade.
SP1 are glove killers
after 2 weeks in Tignes these bindings destroyed 2 pairs of gloves, i mean !shredded. release mechanism consitently jammed and is way sharp. after your mates have scooted off you WILL be left bashing the top buckle praying for release. very frustrating. next year i'll pay for someone to thrash me with a holly boosh at the same time just to get the full SP1 experience
SP1 ratchets are stink
After 2 week in Tignes these poxy bindings ripped through 2 pairs of gloves. ripped to !shreds. The release mechanisms are odd and sharp!. ratchet release on top buckle consistently jammed. when it jams you will know about it because your mates will have moved on and you WILL spend 3-4min trying to get the bugger off. i even resorted to hitting it with a spanner to no avail. overall a frustating experience.
Bodacious Bindings Bumping Bunk Ratchets
So these bindings are great. They're responsive, comfortable, adjustable; They come with this soviet steez styling; The convertible toe cap is sweeeeet. All in all a great binding right? Right. But then you get to the ratchets. Putting them on is great. Insert, crank, apply innuendo and move along down the hill. But then you get the base of the mountain and you stand looking like a fool as you work your ass off for five minutes trying to get them to release. It's not just cause it's cold either. They're just ghetto ratchets. I mean ghetto if you like getting in and out. They're sick if you don't want them to release, ever... I mean like ever. Also: They lack the awesomeness of last year's metallic red. Still a great binding. You just can't get out of them.
These are great bindings! Really solid and stiff for fast response edge to edge. Ride has always built a durable binding and the SPI's definitely live up to this. Also, they are very easy to adjust on the fly. My only minor complaint is the ratchet system. It tends to get hung up every once in a while, when trying to unstrap.
Responsive, Not For Beginners
These bindings are very, very solid and highly adjustable. The aluminum baseplate lets you run these binders on all snowboards and gives you the freedom of shifting the binding around once the bolts are in place. The straps are wide and comfortable, though the ankle strap is quite stiff. In fact, the whole binding is very stiff once you've got everything locked down. That said, it's VERY responsive. These bindings chew through soft boots. If you're looking for a purpose-built freestyle/park binding, these are not it. They're perfect for trees, high speeds, pow, steeps, big jumps, cliffs, etc. I don't recommend them for beginners.
Greatest Bindings EVER
I don't think I'll ever buy a different brand/model binding again. I've ridden Burton Synchros, Missions and Cartels, and also Flow Amp5's and FSI Pro's and none of them stand up to the Ride SPI. The all-aluminum base and everything is just solid and the ratchet system is better than anything out there. These things are so responsive and for the first time ever I feel a real 'oneness' with the board, no barriers between my feet and the board...like an extension of myself. I read another review that mentioned the ratchets can mangle your mittens, which is true. The release on the toes is kinda sharp on the edges...so be careful! But anyway to sum it all up if you're reading this and considering buying these, I say go for it...you'll probably never want any other binding if you do.
Not so good for me
I Like the looks of the SPI.I really like my bindings really tight, the plastic straps striped at ratchet area within the second trip. I am replaceing them with Burtons now!!
The Ride SPI bindings provide plenty of support all around, while also offering comfort on the top of the foot due to the beefed up top straps. The aluminum baseplate won't budge no matter how hard you torque it, and the adjustability is really valuable when you are at the top of the lift with no tools in sight. I prefer to use the to strap as a toe cap, but it it's convertible for the old schoolers. I tried the Medium size and I wear a 9, and it was just on the verge of being too small, my foot was sticking in the baseplate after I was unstrapped, so you may want to size up to a Large for feet between 8.5 and 11. Over-all, great binding for riding hard!
ride spi bindings
these bindings are bomber. mine are on a Ride Yukon 164.I use Burton driver X boots.I'm 225 pounds and I ride Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee @ break-neck speed. all three work together perfectly to hold my big ass up when i'm on an edge.
These things are super comfy. I don't have to crank them down to get great response, great edge-to-edge control with these bindings. Really easy to get in and out. I was concerned the straps wouldn't release nicely but they work fine. Metal icing up? Not a problem. The pads on the bottom of the SPIs really make landings nice and soft. I didn't believe it till I landed my first jump on them. Simply put. My feet don't hurt.
Ride SPI Snowboard Binding
These bindings RULE!
SP1's are Rock Solid
I just got back from a weeklong trip to Whistler where we got dumped on (55+ inches during the trip). I brought a backup pair of bindings in case these didn't fill the bill, but they were just dead weight in the suitcase
Great looks and style, I got the black and red, but they look and act bulletproof.
Adjustability out the wazoo
Comfortable straps, metal ratchets and gears
Stiff as hell
Stiff as hell
Strange binding release mechanism on the upper strap was tough to release consistently. Not a problem on the toe strap
Convertible to strap to toe cap strap didn't seem to stay in place on the toe cap. Thats ok because it was really comfy over the top of my foot traditional style.
The ratchets ate my mittens, something about clearances but I quickly learned to tighten with my thumb
Overall they are a fairly pricey premium binding and are worth every penny unless you are looking for a dedicated binding with toe cap straps
top of the line
max adjust , metal frame , monster ratchets , mondo cushoning whats not to like . very stable at high speeds but not light wieght .
I just picked these bindings up at the beginning of the season and won't be turning back. Really like the new toe-strap design and the bindings are super customizable and comfy. If you are looking to put some bindings on your board that will help you own the mountain, the SPI are the right pick. Happy slashing.
Picked up a new set of these for this season and can't say enough good things about them. Recommend them to anyone looking for a versatile binding that works great for all mountain riding or days in the park and pipe!
The binding that does everything and goes wherever you want it to. The binding is very versatile. It's fun to carve up a storm on the trail, dip into some waist-deep powder in the trees and press nose slides on a C-box.
These ATV bindings are responsive and comfortable. The ankle and toe straps are so nice once you get them centered on your boots. The toe strap is convertible, so you can use it as a traditional strap or a toecap depending on your preference. I've actually found it much more comfortable than Burton's toe caps, as it is stretchy and stays in place.
This binding is perfect for anyone who wants response and comfort from their bindings no matter what terrain they may be on.
It is back!
The SPI returns from Ride this year, and that is good news for all of you! This is a super responsive, well constructed aluminum base binding. This binging with its
convertible toe strap, and lightening this binding just a bit, this binding is an all mountain dominator! Get these fast before they are gone! Don't be the one saying "would of, should of, could of!" The season lasts only so long!
