Free ride bindings
 
So if you were put a new free ride board together what bindings would you use and why?

The board I have in mind is the Jones Flagship

I find price is the biggest factor for me, crazy discounts on last seasons stuff in the northern hemisphere. Shipping to Aus is probably ridiculous though.

Just bought a 2013 Nitro Slash 166, probably going to go with 2014 Ride Capos. Want something stiffer than the Burton Geneses on my all mountain board, and mostly liked the Ride EXs I had before that. Curious as to what other people are going with though.

I had tried my FS with Burton Diodes, Salomon Quantum and Rossi XV bindings, they all matched very well, all responsive freeride bindings. Liked the Diodes most, their new straps are surprisingly compy and very responsive. The Ride El Chefe were on my list as well but I couldn't find a demo pair. Hubby rides his Carbon FS with NOW Drive, also a good match.

There's a thread from last season when I was looking for a binding fir the FS which contains more potential candidates http://www.snowboardingforum.com/bin...-bindings.html. ( I ended up with pairing it with the Spark Afterburners :))

Burton Diodes or Genesis. I have both and I am really happy with both. I think the response is great. The Genesis have a little more softness to them, and are a little cheaper.

I haven't ridden the newest Diodes, but had a pair in 11/12 and 12/13. A side from that I've had Union Chargers. I prefer them over the Diodes, and I prefer the Diodes over the Cartels of the same era, if that tells you anything.
