Default Heavy Duty Bindings

I am a larger snowboarder around 6'5" and 250 lbs. Ive been snowboarding for 9ish years and i am yet to find a binding that doesnt crack, break, bend, or loosen. And im not talking about the average wear and tear that bindings receive, I realize that they get old and break, but i know putting all my weight on them does not help.

Does anyone know of some bindings made specifically for this reason? Some really heavy duty bindings?

I'd start by listing what you've tried before to eliminate those from showing up in the recommendations. Depending on what you've used before and your style of riding, with your size, it may just be something you have to deal with. If you're launching your big ass off of 40 footers, shit's gonna break occassionally!

Haha not quite 40 footers. I dont do large jumps, (thats a whole lotta man coming down) I guess my riding would be freestyle. I love carving up a storm in some pow and hitting kickers here and there, nothing too crazy or big. Right now im riding Salomon SPX Pros, which are not doing horrible but i can see a crack starting in the base, Ive tried Burton Custom X, An old Rome pair? I dont remember,

I am just wondering if anyone knows or has heard of bindings for bigger guys. And im tired of just dealing with it, thats why im asking

I had a play with a pair of Union Forces in the shop a while ago and remember thinking that they must be fucking bomb proof. Very solid construction.

Burton has a lifetime warranty on their baseplates as do some other binding manufacturers as well so should be able to get stuff replaced as well.

Don't trust Ride and their warranty. My 185 pound ass bent the shit out of some Ride SPi's and they told me to get bent.

I disagree, Ride now has a lifetime warranty on their baseplates, and are one of the few companies to use forged aluminum mounting disks, which are one of the most durable materials out their.
