It's nice and playful when you need it, but responsive when you drive into the highback thanks to the hammock. Very comfortable and light bindings.

I do find myself missing canted footbeds though.
Thanks for the suggestion. Have been looking at some genesis just today.
I can pick some up at a reasonable price in my size.

I have two reservations though,

1) Most riders seems to say they are more on the freestyle side of all mountain. I definitely need enough response to handle some pretty steep technical terrain of the pistes.

2) Thanks to your post, I now see they have no autocant. Why not?

I have looked at several different companies (within whats available here in Japan) and I just keep coming back to the cartels. The little extra stiffness (compared to the genesis) and I know they will do everything I need of them.

I can get my hands on the restricted and the limited late release (lighter and with react strap upgrade).

I am now leaning heavily towards those limited cartels.

Any thoughts? Have you ridden them?

Happy new years eve everyone.
