k2 Formula Or Ride Rodeo?

Help me pick a binding for my son's board.
His boot size 7
After speaking with the reps from NS, K2 and Ride,
I have decided to get him adult bindings ( med) for his evo mini 130
I think I have narrowed it down to 2 or 3 bindings
k2 Formula (found great price)
ride Rodeo or reflex (these are upgrade from his current ride phenoms)

He is more of a park rider, but still likes to blast the groomers/trees now and then.
I don't ride park, so I don't have much experience as to what is best for his progression/

Please help me decide, as I am on the fence, and i have analysis Paralysis

How much does your boy ride and how old is he? Will an adult binding fit properly on a mini?

he rides about 30-40 days in the season

He is 10 going on 11, and unfortunately he is 70lbs wet so too small for adult board, but he has size 7 Flippers (burton ruler smalls, and 32 women size 9 Boa)

I spoke to never summer and to k2/ride. they both said the bindings should fit
they told me the med size is very similar in size to the med youth binding.
difference in the binding is a little more width.

Kids MD is not the same as adult MD that is more akin to a kids lg or xl. That said the Formula is a better binding in my opinion.

Thanks BA,
It was the one I was leaning toward.
I think I will pull the trigger on the formula. they have a return policy in case it does not fit


appreciate the feedback

Does he like his current Ride bindings?

I usually ride about 20 different pair in a season, just to see what I like.

Last couple years I've acquired a few Rides, Revolt, EX, LX x2 & Cappo.

They seem to gravitate to the boards I ride the most.

If it ain't broke....

You're in Canada T-bagger?

Even if your not, Craigslist is the best I believe.

He does like his rides,
the current ones are kid ones. the new board is an upgrade, from his old board, as a reward for doing so well at woodward. To hopefully help him progress some more.
With that goal in mind I wanted to get him a "better" set of bindings as well.
this way he is not switching bindings between boards.

I live in PA, so not in Canada, but have scanned Clist for bindings, not many near me. most of them old and abused

the price for the formula's new was around $70

The if it ain't broke comment was more towards brand loyalty.

The Rides I have, are all pretty much the same design. I like it.

I know any other pair I acquire is gonna be too.

Never had a problem with any pair, so I don't think twice about grabbin' another pair.



Maybe there isn't a pair on craigs right now?

but with 5 or so months left till winter, you shouldn't have to pay more than $20 bucks for a mint pair of used Rides?
