I just picked up a pair of this years Ride EX bindings. I have been using ride bindings for years now and still love the aluminum base and heel cup. They added in a wedgie 1.5 footbed which seems super cush. That is a major change from my EX's from ten years ago. Plus this will be the first time I have ever tried the new toe straps that hold from the front. I am stoaked about that. Should increase response a ton and decrease fatigue.
Has anyone used these yet? Maybe you can give me some set up tips before I head out tomorrow!!! 1st day of riding for me in VA.
I felt that they had some what of a medium flex.. i'd prefer a lil stiffer bindings
I have the 2010 like u & people complained about the 2009 or earlier EX's having the adjustment screw coming loose & falling off during their ride.
I didn't have any problems with mine.. just turn the screw so it's tight but not overly tightened & when u lock it into place make sure u feel it's secure by trying to pull it back a lil like u were goin to adjust it
I didn't notice any difference with the 1.5 footbed wedgies
I'm also considering the 2010 Ride EX's. It's hard to tell the actual color just by online pictures, but the limone ones look a sick lime greenish. But I'm torn between these and the 2009 K2 Formulas. I can find the Formulas for $110 and the EX's for $150.
Any serious recommendations between these two bindings??
NorthEastBoarda you mentioned in another post that you got yours for $100. Where'd you find that deal? And do you have any comparison to the formulas?
Ya I know a guy that owns a shop so he hooked me up with a great deal. I have never tried the formulas so unfortunately I dont have anything to compare. I take back what i said earlier about the screws coming loose, I ended up screwing them in very tight with a drill as opppsed to a screw driver and they lasted a solid 8 hours on the slopes today. So other then some cosmetic wear and a little slippage on the toe strap I would deffinatly reccomend these for the more park oriented rider.
