I've seen several reviews that say Ride bindings are not very durable. The most common problems are the straps and ladders coming loose easily, and the rubber material busting/popping out on the toe straps.
One of my friends has had a pair though for a few years and so far hasn't had any problems with them, so...lucky him!
Not sure where you read those reviews, I have a pair of '08 Ride Delta's that have 60ish days on them, they still look and function like the day I pulled them out of the box.
I did hear they had a lot of problems with the toe straps on the contrabands.
