The ratchets haven't changed.
Apparently I ride harder or hit bigger stuff. Cause my knees kill me after a day in sub par dampened bindings. And I ride $400 boots.
Either that, or you've been spending too much time on your knees throughout your life. I'd guess the latter.
Btw, I love all your "claimz". $400 boots? Cool dude. No one cares lol.
