I'll take Flux all day everyday over Ride. I don't like Ride's aluminum baseplates. I think it translates a lot of chatter up through the board that a lot of other bindings will soak up. I also prefer a softer binding in general. As far as durability goes, again I don't like Ride's aluminum baseplates. They don't flex, they bend. I warped the shit out of the baseplates on my SPi's.
Take that for what it's worth coming from admitted Flux lover and Ride hater.
