As far as I am concerned these bindings were a good upgrade from the CO2's I had ridden on for 4 years. Very responsive, which is what I like in a binding. That being said, Burton needs to change the glue they used to keep the air bed attached to the plastic on the foot bed of this binding. After two days up the toe piece has come unglued, which creates a place for snow to get between the footbed and air bed parts of the binding. The snow packs in during the course of an afternoon of ridding and makes your toes start to point up uncomfortably. For the price, 400+ dollars, I would have expected Burton to use a more robust, waterproof glue. I have since glued them back down and I hope this fixes the problem (I hate to send back a working product that I can fix in 2 min) but if it does not, they are going back to Backcountry. Thanks for your great return policy Backcountry, and no thanks to Burtons quality control and crappy warranty policy.
