The thing about Ride boards is there slime walls. It makes for a dampened ride. They basically build their suspension into their boards. Plastic bindings make for a softer ride underfoot to reduce board chatter and absorb shock. If you go with a DH2 or any ride board I suggest either Rome bindings or Ride. Something rigid underfoot or else you will sacrafice pop and board feel. I only say this through personal exeperience. I have a ride crush. Last season I was riding Flux Titan RKs, albeit the Fluxes are very soft bindings. I just upgraded to some Ride Delta Mvmnts. Talk about night and day. I thought soft was the way to go, but having that extra leverage of a metal baseplate and heel cup makes pressing and ollying so much easier.
