My girl got me the Genesis for Christmas. I've strapped in and flexed around but I'll be riding them for the first time tomorrow. I can only comment on the ankle strap, foot bed and reflex base plate. The base really does allow natural board flex compared to a sold base plate. I did a side by side test. Full flexed the Genesis and you could literally see the board flex with/under the binding with no kink while the hologram had a kink at the inner edge of the binding. The ankle strap is super comfy and it literally feels like you don't have it on and the double take ladders and ratchets work amazingly. The foot bed is much softer than any other foot bed I have tried. I'll find out how they ride and flex and how responsive they are tomorrow. So far, my favorite bindings ever but tomorrow will be do or die day.

what do canted bindings have to do with rocker? canting is meant to make your knees feel more comfortable when riding. it puts your knees and feet in a more natural position...

Mystery - how'd you like the genesis'? I love mine. Actually I think we're rocking the same setup - Proto HD and 2014 Gens? Sexy

OMG. It's the best setup I have ridden to this date. After I rotated the highback and got use to the feel I'm so in love. Can't wait to ride it again next week. It's taken over my dreams. Lol

It has been stated by companies that canting directly helps rocker boards more. I do not know the science behind it.. maybe because the board is lying flat so there isnt as much give so the canting gives you that give?

I've got the 2014 est genesis on my 2012 Barracuda, and i'll echo what others have said, the binding is beyond ridiculously comfortable.... to the point that it's a problem because I assumed once I was bound in and went down the slope only to eat it hard on the first attempted turn.

As far as the rotating highbacks, you are supposed to adjust your highback to be parallel with your board, so my front foot is pointing 14degrees to the left, which means your highback is 14degrees off until you adjust them.

well i bought them and have used them for numerous days now. i had purchased the burton slx boots and had a pressure point inside those boots that was so painful probably due to my slight wide foot. returned those and got the thiry-two tm 2 boots and now i can see how nice the bindings are. comfortable and responsive. question though. The gas pedal. how far should they be extended with a 11.5 boot? what is the goal?

I ride the 2011 Flux TT30 binding for all-mountain, freeriding and pow. For my weight (67kg), the highback is firm enough and I find the binding to be comfortable and responsive, especially the straps. There's no canting and little padding on the footbed. I think the TT binding has gotten softer over the years since my model.

I rode my friend's 2014 Genesis recently and were very impressed. They were comfortable, flexed organically if that makes any sense, prolly due to the Reflex. The ankle strap was super comfortable. I thought Flux straps were king but the Genesis strap really impressed me. I was also very impressed with the helical buckles and how much faster they are on the take-up.

Now I want a pair of Genesis, dangit
