Rome 390 Boss vs Ride vs K2 Company
I always swore I would never be that guy to ask "What's the best binding?" but after going to 3 stores today and reading all of the reviews on here and everywhere - I spent less time deciding to get my house.
Been riding Burton Cartels and Customs and am sick of the rachet on the toe. I know no one complains about that much but I'm turned off now.
Looked today and really liked the flex on the base plate toe/heel and soft sides of Ride bindings (El Hefe for example). The Astro Glide straps were pretty nice too. After reading though I found a ton of people saying they hated the toe strap which is exactly what I'm trying to get away from - my toe being loose after 100 yards.
Then the K2 Company looked nice. Nice highback & straps.
However, I am really digging what I'm reading here on the Rome 390 Boss but I couldn't find any in a store today to hold and see for myself.
So Flow is out for a lot of reasons, Burton I'm walking away from, Union I really didn't like, and now I'm down to these 3 companies. With the Ride's it would most likely be the Revolts.
I'm an intermediate rider, Gnu 156cm Carbon Credit Board, 32 Lashed Boots size 7.5, 150lbs 5'6", 80% of the time I'll be doing all mountain and every glade I can find. So with the glades there's some level of freestyle but nothing like the park.
I'm favoring Rome unless you guys think very differently. Love to hear what you think.
