is it normal for my binding strap to break? again
 
I broke my toe strap again. This is my second time in 4-5 years. Is it normal? how often you break your strap?

where did it break at?

I just broke one yesterday.
I had it to tight where it connected to the binding and that with it being a few years old put to much torque on it.
It is good to replace every couple of years as the plastic compound they are made of breaks down over time and in extreme temps.
The plastic starts to lose the oil in it that gives it flex.
Keep a eye and replace your discs on your bindings if they are plastic or vinyl also as from experience landing off a huge tabletop and having one break into a few peices causes huge doctor bills.
Only ride metal now myself.
Keep a eye on the inserts on your board that you bolt your bindings into as they can start to pull out with abusive, fun riding style.


I just noticed I typed extreme, are you allowed to use that word here?

you are almost Core, when you break 2-3 per season you will get a Core patch and lapel pin

No first he has to get a AM Core pin then he gets his Pro Core pin

rear binding parts will fail, eventually. period.

You ride enough days and a screw will back out or a strap will wear, buckle springs break, buckles explode, kick the toe cap off, unicorns fuck it to death...

wow...didn't know parts are so fragile
you meant replace parts couple of years? or the whole binding?
metal is heavy though...I have metal.
no...I don't think I am anywhere riding as hard as you:)

Yeah I have had my bindings break there before not a big deal get a new strap or better yet get some new bindings if you want.
