you guys have the riot?, a bit off topic but do you think thats a good board to add to my quiver? Im 5'9 145lbs and ride alot a park. I have the funkinkusa that kills in on rails and butters and some smaller hits but its a bit to soft and lacks in powder. I was thinking of going the extreme-opposite so i have two completely different boards (i was considering the evil twin but i dont want a "all around" board that will replace my funkink)
am i right on wanting the riot for mid-big kicker, cruise, and pow riding? or should i go the evil twin route??



BUT back to the topic, im pretty sure andy gidlund (bataleon rider) always rocks union force with his riot.

Yeah, the Riot is built for big kickers and powder. It's a really fast board that will launch you pretty good. That's why I'm looking for some better bindings.

A lot of vots for SPI, what do you guys like about them?

I don't personally feel that the forward lean on the Cartels is to extreme. The Clickers used to have were way worse when it came to forward lean, and they weren't adjustable since it was built into the boot. Same with my Liquid step-ins, though they weren't as bad. Compared to both of those though, the Cartels have me feeling like I can actually stand up straight if I want to. But again, I haven't ridden the other bindings you're asking about so I can't compare the lean to them.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I didn't say they didn't have any lean, I just said compared to the other bindings I have ridden ,the lean on the Cartels is nothing. Go ride some Clickers, then you'll understand where I'm coming from.

I snowboard is pretty cold weather at times. Will the "gel net" on the toe of the SPI's hold up in that kind of weather?
