Love the Ride NRC. Have them on a Nitro Shogun and they are great. Numerous reviews on here about that binding. Also consider the Ride SPI which is very similar but at less cost. I also have Forces on my NS Evo-R and I am not loving them so far. I just don't feel confident on that toe strap holding tight with my Salomon boots.

Right on man- have yet to hear too many negatives on the NRc. Was avoiding the SPI cause I didn't want to go too stiff. been riding a stiff ass burton binding for years and will keep those on my NS titan, wanted something softer for my lib.

Rome Targas. One of the most versatile bindings around.

My Ride NRC's feel like your strapped into a cloud and the gel toe strap is amazing.

I think the Ride NRC comes with the best footbed and toe strap on the market. They're slightly heavy, but part of it is the metal base plate disc. I have no issues with the highbacks either but I wish the ankle strap was as comfy as the Rome 390's.
