Bindings for GNU Carbon Credit
 
Just bought a Gnu Carbon Credit for my first board, so now I am looking for bindings. I am looking for an all mountain setup and have been checking out the Rome 390 boss and Burton Cartel bindings. I've heard that the 390's are really comfortable, but how well would they pair with a CC? I'm not really interested in park so that isn't really a deciding factor. Thanks for the help :)

Get cartel or malavita, end of story.

Edit - Genesis also but only 2015 because of the autocant footbed.

I've had 4 friends with 2014 cartels and they all broke (mainly the Highbacks forward lean tool) Mind you we work at a resort and our boards are our main transportation for 200+ days. I Just bought new Malavitas and haven't ridden them yet. I've ridden a pair of 2010 forum shakas for the last 4 years and put over 300 days on them and they're still holding up. If you can find a pair of shakas or republics (considering forum disbanded) they're definitely worth the search and you can usually get them heavily discounted.

I run union forces on my carbon credit. I couldn't be happier with the set up... It's very a responsive setup yet forgives enough to keep boarding fun. My only gripe is the coreshot I put in it last year but that's my own damn fault. (Fucking rocks)

i know a guy that had the same problem. thats the only thing that deters me. and also the malavitas have a metal pin thing that goes through the toe ladder to keep it on the baseplate so if u break the ladder, you cant take it off :shrug:

i ride union forces and after 3 seasons im still on original hardware apart from a friend breaking my toe ladder. easily replaced though. highly recommend union forces

Yeah I didn't notice the pin until I started mounting them. I'm not sweating it to bad though since I got them brand new for $60. I'm definitely going to be looking into union's for next season

OP, the 390 Boss would suit your CC just fine.

Have you spoken to Burton about it? I doubt that they can't replace a part in their bindings

not my bindings. ive worked in a service shop right on the slopes for 3 seasons now so i see my fair share of broken parts and do what i can to fix them. it also gives me a good indication of the bindings that last and the ones that dont.
