You got a valid point there, indeed they have 2013 for 180$ but they only have the black and red which I don't like it on Protohype. I might rethink now , another binding that I like I the k2 company 2013 and burton mission. Both are well over 230$ at that retail store.
S my next question would be, is it worth to spend extra $40 for the 2012/13 K2 Formula? Or really they are not that much different?
