Ride NRCs -vs- Rome Targas

5'7" 160 lbs , Never Summer SL-R 155

I like playing on trails, will venture into the park but not much.

I just bought the forum darling NS SL-R. I am looking for some bindings and was considering the NRCs.

I was also looking at the Rome Targas. How do these two compare in terms of stiffness? I want a binding to compliment the SL-R and not be too stiff for playing around on the slopes but rarely in the park.

Both bindings are adjustable the Targa's can adjust more in terms of stiffness. I had this decision last year and went with the Ride's and now I am all about them. Picked up some Delta's this year as well. I think both are a good choice. I have not ridden the Targas but there is something about their toe strap that makes me sketchy almost like it would rip easily, though I have never heard that happening. For the 2010's I like the auto strap feature the targa's have.

In summary, you probably can't go wrong with either. I recommend Ride for the canted footbed and the toe strap. Next year Rome is going with canted footbeds so you know there is something to it.

As tek stated, you can't go wrong with either binding. IMO, the Targa's are slightly softer than the NRC and if you're planning to do some park, this may be something to think about. The toe strap in the Targa's are as good as they come and will not tear (speaking from experience). The canted footbed of the Ride bindings are definitely a bonus though. Again, you can't go wrong with either binder.

+1 on the Targa toestrap. Durable from experience.

Ride NRC is a pretty amazing binding - it is a softer version of the CAD>.

PITA to get set up on the board but really adjustable after that.

Definitely the Rome Targas. They're my favorite binding this yr. I tried out a set of NRCs for a few days this sesason, and they were great bindings, but the Targas were just a little better. Lighter, more responsive, easier to setup and get dialed in. The Ride ratchets tend to stick when you're releasing them, and all the screws for the custom footbeds had already started to oxidize from just a few days use prior to my turn.

I just picked up a pair of NRc's and love em- they do take an extra min to set up- but they have tons of adjustability and a killer footbed.
