Ride Mig to Ride LX

I own a Ride Decade (I believe its í05) with a pair of Ride Flight Mig (í05 as well). Havenít ridden in a couple of years and Iím getting back into it. The technology has advanced considerably in the 4-5 years that Iíve purchased equipment. Iím quite happy with my board, but I think the bindings can use an upgrade. I love the Migs, but bindings today have much better ratchets, comfortable ankle straps, convertible toe straps, and much more adjustments.

I was looking at the Ride LXís for an upgrade on the bindings. Does anyone here remember the Flight Mig? Would the LXís be an improvement?

While there have been quite a few advancements in binding technology, especially with Ride(no more revolver ratchets!), I don't think the LX will a significant enough upgrade to be worth it. At a minimum I would look at the EX's if you are looking at 2010 gear, or try to find last year's deltas/betas/Spi's, NRC's etc for around the same price as the lx's

Thanks for the replies guys. After some more research, I've narrowed it down to 2 choices: RX or Delta. Leaning towards the Delta as they seem to be one of the best all mountain freestyle bindings out there.

Quick question though: Why do the RX's have the ability to adjust the heelcup, while the Deltas do not?

This year's EX/RX are fantastic values, considering all the trickle-down tech they now have.

Don't know the answer to yor heelcap question.
But I have the EX bindings and like them had them for a season and had one strap come apart a bit with webbing. Ride replaced them no problem.

I am a writer and have done some pieces on extreme sport. Here's my page if you'd like to check it out. I'd appreciate any comments as writing is my passion.
