I pretty much agree with my experience with the '12 Uprises last year. The toe strap is pretty ingenious but with a traditional buckle would just be better. I ended up kicking most of the important parts to shit trying to get in and out of the back foot over 50 days. It looks like they are moving most of their line away from it. I know alot of people love the auto system, for 5 days a year it would be fine.
Their bindings are loaded with great features, maybe a bit heavy but probably by less than a beer.
is it late october yet?
