Diode is geared towards freeriding purpose, I was not impressed with the binding. Lean adjustment isnt a simple twist and turn like all other burton bindings, there is no cushioning on the highbacks. Just doesnt seem like it would be a comfortable ride for a period of time.
For forward lean adjustment, this is something I tend to need to do only once on my bindings.
As for comfort, I find them more comfortable than either pair of C60s I've got. I ride long days of technical freeriding, jumps, carving, etc. and the binders don't hurt me at all!
