Rodeo Snowboard Binding
Put another notch in the belt of your park game with the fluid flexibility of the Ride Rodeo Snowboard Binding. This freestyle specialist loves nothing more than tweaked methods, locked-in nosepresses, and lofty spins. It sits on the softer side of medium, making it a versatile binding outside the park when you're ripping turns between trees and cruising the entire mountain.
Making good use of Ride's Infinity chassis of solid aluminum, the Rodeo is built for regular park beatings and all-terrain thrashings. The adjustable heelcup allows you to fine-tune the fit to your particular boots, eliminating excess toe overhang from plaguing your turns. An EVA base pad sits under the baseplate, reducing vibration and shock from fatiguing your ride.
The Rodeo highback is a flat-shaped highback that's loaded with a tweakable side-to-side flex, yet still supportive when you're laying into a heelside turn. The premium 3D-formed Freestyle Asym ankle strap wrapping your upper boot and a ThinGrip Max toe strap conforming to the boot's toe box ensure that comfort levels are maxed out. And then the canted Wedgie footbed matches your natural riding stance to alleviate pressure on your knees while adding control over the tip and tail of your board.

- Q & A
Heavy but solid
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I demoed these bindings on a big powder day and was impressed. The base pad on these made for a very comfy ride in some of choppier terrain I had to cut through and were very supportive while I was shredding through the powder. The construction of these is very solid, I imagine they can take a real beating. I think the only fallback is the weight.. these were on the heavier side.
