I have the Company IPOs and I love them. The only thing I don't like that much with K2 bindings is the mechanism that they use to fixate the toe strap setting. I've opened that thing unwillingly on the chair twice.

How much they weigh?
In description it says "Pro-Fusion GF chassis lightness" - is it really that heavy or it's relative?

I wanna buy Never Summer SL and some good bindings, considering Formulas and also Union Atlas, Burton Cartels. What is the lightest gear?

Good! What is your preferred style of riding? I'm doing so far only freeride on groomers mostly, but wanna do some jumps and tricks. So maybe I need bindings more for freeriding rather freestyle. Would Formulas do the trick?

Defiantly! I have a pair on my SL which I use for all mountain free riding and then a pair on a K2 WWW which I use as my park/muck around board. I have ridden them hard and fast on the SL and they felt super solid.

Thank you, now I'll wait for upcoming sales to see what is more affordable.

K2's are a bit on the heavy side, but they put alot of plush bells and whistles in there. You can feel the diference when you hold them, but I assure you that the weight of half a glass of water does not make them perform any less.

Unless you are hiking more than riding lifts, the concerns of weight on this forum are totally whack(you will see it all over the place) and something to ignore completely.

(not calling anybody out just trying to steer this thing back to the path of truth and light )

yes they are relatively heavy. I have them on the first year sl and that setup is a tank in comparison to my evo with flux ds30's. but with the weight they are awesome for all mtn riding, extremely plush and comfortable, it's got all the tech I want in a binding just wish it was lighter

Buckle your straps of your loose foot, a couple clicks down prior to loading on the lift, or what not....... I generally do this with all bindings to keep my highback down.

Great binding no complaints with mine! almost got the autoevers, but was dissuaded by the cable
