You're the boss of your board, if nothing else.
As you might guess from its name, the Diva Women’s Snowboard Binding is the queen of the Rossignol women’s binding line; with the Diva’s fit, response, and light weight, you’ll be ruling the mountain yourself. The HC-X 33 baseplate features a nylon-glass blend for punchy response and the T6 aluminum heelcup that’s light, adjustable, and striking as hell, too. Throw in the adjustable, padded highback and you’ve got the tools and the confidence to at least get the board to do your bidding, if not everyone else on the mountain.
- EVA Integral Pads on the baseplate provide full cushioning and great board feel
- 3D Air Vent ankle strap’s split design shaves weight by eliminating material where you don’t need it; SuperFoam padding does away with hot spots
- 3D toe strap convertible to ride on the toe box or over the top of the boot

I tried these out because I worked at a shop where I could demo gear. In theory these bindings sound pretty cool. I'm not sure if I'm describing this correctly, but there is a way to move the high back further back or in to adjust to any size boot, the gold part of the binding on which the high back sits. On the side you'll see a little window where the desired boot size shows for the correct position. I took these out for a couple runs and immediately went to put back my regular bindings on the board. It seemed like the bindings only fit boots that had an obvious curved arch on the inside of the boot. I thought maybe it was me because I have small feet size 5, but another girl I worked with size 7 or 8 foot had the same complaint and were not into the bindings because of that too. If you've got your heart set on these, I'd recommend checking these bindings out in person before making a decision.
These just outright suck. I demo'ed these and after one run.. immediantely went back inside to change out the bindings. Not very responsive and the fit with the boot is weird. In theory, one binding that can adjust to numberous boot sizes sounds cool, but it just doesn't work with these. You're better off getting Ride, Flux, etc. if you want a good reliable binding. Rossi should just stick with the ski stuff and snowboards strictly. I seriously hate these bindings.
