Spend less time strapping in and more time shredding.

Tired of getting bypassed by tourists in the lift line and snaked by skiers at the top of the park? K2's Cinch CTS Snowboard Binding offers a comfortable and convenient alternative to traditional bindings for riders of all ability levels that makes getting in and out of your bindings, well, a cinch.

When you need to get your foot in your binding, simply pull the loop on the back of the highback to fold the highback and heelcup down so you can slide your boot right in. Not only does this make getting into and out of your bindings much quicker, but it also means that once you set your straps to the tightness you want them, you never have to adjust them again or find yourself muttering "just one more click ..."

Of course, the Cinch CTS is about more than just convenience. The designers at K2 cored out any unnecessary materials in the baseplate and highback to reduce weight so you don't have to choose between quick or comfy. Canted Harshmellow footbeds are angled to keep your feet in a more natural position while you're riding to reduce foot fatigue, and they absorb shock and dampen vibrations for a buttery-smooth ride.

Not so convenient

Size L does not accommodate size 11 K2 boot. I could slide in and out alright using the cinch but not the straps. On an incline using the cinch takes some effort and ingenuity . The buckles do not release easily either . Love the boots hate the bindings.

Not hassle free.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I loved the bindings once my boots were locked in them. Getting in them and tightening them to where I wanted was a different story. The back folds down nice and you can slide your boot in nice but the toe strap will feel loose. So you tighten it down a crank or two and after a few runs its so tight you can't get your boot in it. You have to constantly loosen up the toe strap but these aren't normal ratcheting straps. They do not come loose easy. It ended up being much more of a hassle than what it was worth. I felt like after a while i would break the toe ratchet with all the abuse I was putting it through. Also after about 7 days of riding I could already see some wear on my boots from sliding them in and out. When I had the bindings set where I wanted them, I thought their performance was awesome and I really enjoyed them but the beginning and end of each run was a different story.

K2 is Amazing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I don't know why anyone would want the old style of bindings. Who wants to sit down and waste time strapping in? I can as i'm getting off the lift position my foot and lock in the boot without having to stop. This comes in very handy as most of my friends ski. It feels just the same as a traditional strap in binding without all the hassle. This product also has the harsh mellow footbed, combinded with harsh mellow in my K2 boots and K2 Slayblade it provides the best ride on the mountain. I have tried many other systems and have never found a company that is better than K2. They by far make the best products in the world!

Very Legit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These binding are very legit. Easy to use and once you set them, your good to go. These can be a little squirrelly getting into if your not on a completely flat surface. But after a full day of boarding you'll get the hang of it. These bindings definitely save time at the top of the mountain. I'm always waiting on my friends to get strapped in. I know a few people have mentioned that the rear entry design doesn't transmit as much force which decreases your ability to control your board while riding. In this case, I think if you prefer really stiff binding than these may not satisfy your riding style. They are definitely a medium on the stiffness scale. Also, some dude had asked me if they have ever came undone while riding, the answer to that is no. They lock so your foot is completely secured and you can have total confidence they will not spontaneously come undone.

I am always looking for ways to escape time consuming binding and boot lacing and strapping. The cinch offers an excellent design. Once you set your front strap settings, you are good for the day. I have never had any issues with this system. I have had lots of issues with burton step-ins and the old k2 systems.
