I've ridden these. One of the most enigmatic bindings I've ever been in. It took me 3 runs to get a good read on Nows. Similar for Salomon Shadow Fit. Less to really feel the differences made to the Contact Pro this year. I did an entire day jumping off rollers, riding park, hitting jumps, blasting groomers... I'm still not entirely sure if these are stiff or just below mid flex. It's a very strange binding... I did quite like them though.
d3o hardens, but the duro that is on the binding doesn't get rock solid like the kind they use in protection equipment. It works really well for the binding since it stiffens up in chop, making the binding more solid and responsive, but stays more pliable when you what to play around.
Fears on the toe strap? It's Rome. Come on. It's solid.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
