I had to order these to check them out. There aren't any shops in my area that stock this binding and I was very curious. Overall I'm not as impressed as I was expecting or rather hoping to be. There are some pros and cons to this binding, but to me the cons outweighed the pros so I sent them back. Keep in mind, I haven't ridden them, just inspected them, however I've been riding for ~25 years, so I can anticipate what I'd get out of them.
These bindings are pretty lightweight, but in my hands, they didn't seem much lighter if any than this season's union T. Rice bindings I compared them against.
I do like the canted footbeds, and also, the asymmetrical highback is slightly canted... I have not seen any mention of this, even in ride's video.. I thought that was a pretty cool feature.
The footbeds are nice and plush and the toe strap looks super comfy and grippy, some buddies of mine ride the capo's and love them. I found the ankle strap to be a little too minimalistic. It just seems like when really digging into a deep toeside turn, there might not be enough support, but that is just based on appearance. I haven't been able to test.
My biggest issue with these is the LACK of adjustability. The baseplate and heel cup have some room to adjust, but, the ankle strap is non-negotiable. It's fixed in its position so if you prefer it a little higher on your boot, you're SOL.
Also, the highback rotation is just simply lacking, it almost defeats the canted highbacks purpose. I can't align it w/the heel side edge of the board enough to be happy, it's not that it's too stiff, it's the mechanism that attaches the highback to the heelcup. I'm just not impressed with the engineering behind it.
Finally, the tool-less forward lean adjustment from previous seasons has been removed in place for a forward lean that requires a philips head... very disappointing for on the fly adjustments.. b/c there aren't any!
If you're willing to overlook these issues then these might be the right binding for you, but to me, they just didn't live up to the hype, especially at this price point. Overall, I was expecting more from Ride's highest end binding. I think you're essentially paying for the Carbon and the nifty Case. Just a little Disappointed.
