2010 Ride LX Question

Hello I am new to snowboarding and I have a quick question about these bindings or any other bindings that have the same style as these ones.
I just bought a new setup. The bindings I bought were the 2010 Ride LX.

On the bottom of the bindings, you place the baseplate to mount it onto the snowboard. Does anyone know if there is something to cover that baseplate? If not will it rust around that area? I posted a picture without the baseplate.

Thanks in advance

P.s. If i put this in the wrong section sorry!

I have a pair of Ride LXs and a pair of Ride SPi's. Neither have any sign of rust and I don't baby them at all.

No. The heel and toe pad provide the grip. Your boot doesn't even contact the mounting disc.

Don't worry about it Tapzu, it won't rust nor will you slide once you're strapped in.

I've got a pair of Ride EX bindings that are now about 3yrs old and the baseplate and mounting plate are nearly identical to what you've got there. Everything is still in perfect condition. No signs of rust (due to it being aluminum) and no oxidizing or pit marks either! The screws are all stainless so again, nothing to worry about

Here's a couple pics of mine to ease your mind!

Exactly. Just look out for black or white powdery residue. Unless you really beat up on them, and dowse them in salt it won't be a problem.

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.
