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?

I recently purchased a set of Ride El Hefe's and noticed another problem with the straps too (the front/toe strap with the mess - similiar to the capos).

I used them for the first time on the slopes and noticed that the mess actually broke ...

I tried to contact Ride but they still havent responded to my email which was sent a week ago.

Sorry that its kinda irrelevant to your OP but just thought id mention it.
Let me know if you hear anything from ride and how they will compensate your issue

Re: Last year model Ride CAPO problem...

I had a toe strap pop off once this year, but that's it. I had been beating these things hard and no issues. Even the toe mesh has been super solid. My only issue is too stiff, but that's my bad for buying them.

The springs in last year's ratchets in the Capo are terrible. They keep breaking very easily if you thighten them too much. I've had the same problem.

Solution: Ask your local dealer or maybe Ride to give you last year's Rodeo ratchets They are much better built and fit on the Capo. That's what worked for me.

Good luck.
