Ride Zeta Tokidoki bindings

Since there are quite a few female riders on this site now, I'm wondering if I can get your input on the 2009 Ride Zeta bindings from last season. Any of you ladies have any experience with or opinions on them?

I'm thinking of upgrading the 07 Ride Sigma binders I bought my gf last season, mainly because I'm not happy with the old-style convertible toe strap. When used as a cap strap, it doesn't fit the boots very well and the hold doesn't seem that solid. I've tried out the newer webbed toe strap on some Ride NRc's myself, and was really pleased with them.

Oh btw, she's beginner-intermediate and they'd be going on a Bataleon Violenza.


Here's a pic for reference:

my girlfriend actually has these too, along with the ride canvas(tokidoki) board lol...she is also a beginner/intermediate, so she's still learning to ride toe side and beginning to carve. but she seems to like them, comfortable and the toe strap is great, fits over her boots really well.

Lol...all she needs now is the matching jacket/pants! :P

These caught my eye and I looked at them last season when they were on display in local shops, but I didn't really check them out closely. How's the flex on them? From what I understand they're like a women's version of the men's Beta.

haha yeah she doesnt like the clothing as much, it would be just too much tokidoki.

but the flex seems to be somewhat flexy, a mid-flex? but yeah i hear they're similar to the betas

yep, a women's beta. One of my friends in portland has them based on my recommendations and she likes them a lot. A little soft for hard charging but perfect for a casual all mountain chick.

Pretty funny that all the responses were from guys, not girls as I expected lol. Went ahead and ordered them up yesterday. Evogear Outlet has a promo for an addt'l 26% off until eom, so it was a great deal!

Got them set them up and took them up to Crystal this past weekend. Definitely an improvement over her last pair in terms of tech. As always, another solid Ride product, but still lacking an adjustable toe ramp. Had to dial in 2 clicks of forward lean front/rear to match up w/the built-in lean on her Salomon boots. In general, chicks tend to be more concerned about looks than I do, and these go against her usual criteria, being both pink and shiny. Fortunately, they actually look better in person than the stock photos, and add a nice contrast to her board.


Here's a pic on her '09 Bataleon Violenza 145
