2) The plastic used for the straps/ladders are made of a softer plastic that can get chewed up if the toe cap (and ankle strap) is not setup correctly.

Hope this help - Nito

I'll respond to those two points.

1) I meant I wish I could extend it's length not that it needs to be a ramp.

2) In this thread or another. I can't remember but I actually now have wear on mine as well.

I still love these bindings! New colors for 2014 look awesome!
