The size adjust is now an infinite position slider rather than the older 3 position holes. This is awesome for fine tuning size. The Yes I Cant canted footbeds are now all one piece. The base has been milled out for weight savings and allows the footbed to contact the board for better shock absorbtion and contact feel. The relaease on the ratchets is reduced in size and length so accidental actuations will be lessened. The forward lean on the 390 series has been improved for easier use and lighter weight. All of the bindings are ~20% lighter and all still carry Rome's 2 year warranty.
Wiredsport, what are your thoughts on the highback flex and the stiffness/softness of the ankle straps?
