Stick with my old bindings? (Ride EX vs. xxx?)
I've been riding a pair of Ride EX bindings for the last two seasons and haven't really had any major complaints about them -- the ratchet straps can be a bit of a pain -- and the loosening screws, well, I took care of that with some loctite.
At the end of last season I made the mistake of demo-ing a Never Summer Proto CT. So yesterday I jumped in and ordered one for the coming season (entire chain is only getting one!?)
And now I am wondering if new bindings are necessary.
I ride groomers, sometimes duck into really well spaced out trees and am just beginning to try small jumps off of natural features.
I like the EXs -- I know that I don't like the old Ride SPIs. Beyond that, for me it is guess work and this forum.
The Raiden Phantoms (which I can find for $169) seem amazing. And a number of posters have said good things about the Flux DMCC Lights.
