While these are the most comfortable bindings I have ever used, beware if you are 190 lbs or so. I am 5' 10" 190lbs. These bindings broke after hitting one jump in the park. I broke the base in half from the toe to the heel. Pics here http://picasaweb.google.com/moye.christopher/BrokenCartels
Now, if you are a lighter weight rider, then these will probably work just fine for you. The straps are exceptionally comfortable. The toe Cap strap holds the boot back in the binding nicely with out creating pressure points on the toe. The ankle provides sufficient heel hold and lateral movement also while not making pressure points.
