Bindings for Never Summer Cobra + Adidas Blauvelt
 
Hi,

I live in a tropical country and of course there's any ski shop in here, so buying online (without try out anything) is my only option to take advantage on off-season deals.

I just got a 2014 Cobra and a pair of Blauvelt boots.

What's the best matching bindings to go with them?

Have used Unions and Cartels in the past. Now I'm considering the 2014 Diode. Please, share your thoughts. Tks. :thumbsup:

Diode is way too stiff for the Cobra IMO. I like a mid-flex binding on that board. Something along the likes of Flux TT, Cartel, or Union Force. Flux TTs are on my NS Cobra.

I rode union contact pros, factory and switchback bindings all worked great on it. I would bet my genesis would have also if I had not sold them.

If you want to stick to Burton, you'd be much better off with the Cartel or Vitas. It's not even a remotely stiff board.

i honestly dont understand how people are saying the cobra is not a stiff board... My blacklist isnt a stiff board people.. i rode the cobra up at jackson a week ago and its pretty damn stiff..

Thats strange, im riding a Cobra X 163 and it's very flexible for an all mountain board. Most flexible board I have ridden, but I don't ride park boards.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Go ride a raptor/premiere/heritage/summit/chairman. Those are NS's stiffer decks.

maybe i havent broken the board in.. rode it one day. it was stiff, but then again i ride park boards

Different strokes for different folks, but a binding like the Diodes on a board like a Cobra would be a nightmare for me. IMO, the worst possible combination is a binding that is way too stiff for the board. You'd be wiggling your toes and that board would be all over the place. :laugh:

Yeah the Cobra is more mid flex than anything. I honestly thought it was going to be stiffer and was surprised how flexible it was, and I don't ride stiff boards.
