I'm similar in size to you. I'm 6'3" 205 but i wear an 11 in boots. I typically ride all-Mtn as well. I was looking at Ride bindings a few years ago. The EX and LX looked good, but were a little too soft. I went with the Revolts instead. Little more responsive, although not completely stiff either. If you're looking to go with Rides then that's what I would recommend. The only drawback I have with them is a small one: the toe strap. I am a huge fan of the Baltimore toe strap, or as they're more often called, the cap strap. Those cup around your toe instead of on top of them. So they hold them down and pull them back at the same time. Just gives the entire binding a better feel and fit, IMO. The ride toe straps are a hybrid, they have flexible webbing that allows them to go over or around. It works pretty well, but not quite as good as a true cap strap. I am going to retro-fit mine with some Baltimore straps from an old pair of Technines that I still have. Orange and white straps on a black and white binding. Should look pretty gnarly.
