Last year model Ride CAPO problem...
So after posting how much I like my capos, I found a pretty alarming problem last week. I rode at copper the day they had a few inches of fresh snow in the morning. When it got bumpy in late morning I found hitting piles of fresh snow fairly hard would cause my right (back foot) ankle strap to come off! This happened 3 times throughout the day, luckily not causing any wrecks. After the second time I even took my board inside for 30 minutes thinking maybe there was ice frozen in the ratchet somewhere but it happened again.
When I got home I looked at it closer and it looks like the rivet on the buckle could possible be bent so the spring in the ratchet doesn't pull the lever back in it's full travel distance which is causing a weak contact in the strap. I'll try to post a picture tonight when I get home. I plan on contacting ride too this evening to see what they have to say. Anyone had a similar problem?
