Having said that,.. I took a look at your survey! I will tell you, I am a Noob @ this sport & even I have some issues regarding the information you're asking for.

Rather than letting us know that you have any experience or even some/any idea already of existing binding related problems you are looking to correct with current binding styles, you seem to be asking "Us" to tell you what the problems are!!!

...and the question about "Time spent strapping in?" You want that in Minutes???? Really?? Where are you riding?? (...do you ride?)

It takes me maybe 15-30 seconds to strap in (...no I don't have step ins!) and that's if I have to chop or scrape a flat spot to keep from sliding away! If all I gotta do is skate up to the flat & strap,.. 10-15 sec. TOPS!!!

The only people I see taking "Minutes" to strap in are the rat packs using the runnout & drop in to the run as a Lounge!! Sitting around in a pack staring at & blocking the run! (...suppose it might be different on a BC, or off piste run, but don't think those riders are worried about a minute or two one way or the other to get strapped in & get going)

...and asking about ice getting stuck! You want a Yes or No??? Stuck where? Doing what to the bindings??? Their F'ing snowboard bindings!!! After 1 run mine have snow & ice everywhere!!! What relevant information is that yes/no going to tell you????
+1 to this. But don't most non-new riders have decent enough balance to "step in" so to say without having to sit their ass down? I'm talking on a general run, obviously some places it's not practical and you gotta chop a spot.
