the contraband are sweet but they are soft bindings such as the ride kink is a soft board...but the ride DH isnt a soft board so i need harder bindings for the DH to bring out the flex

Actually, if you want a stiffer binding, the Ride SPI is a better choice than the softer Delta.

People like the Burton Cartels, but they are my enemies. I do a lot of presses and the toe caps have a tendency to come loose. This has now happened to me with 3 different sets of cartels on the same rear foot so I'm guessing it isn't a fluke.

If you are a speed of entry fan, Flows are a good choice. Flow NXT-FSE or NXT-ATSE is really nice. They have medium flex and aren't as soft as the Deltas.

Rome Targas are great bindings with adjustable stiffness.

K2 Autos is another option and I happen to like these bindings more than I thought I would.

All Ride bindings are stiff.

I switched to Union Force for my rail board because of the flex. I wouldn't say that the Delta is a soft binding at all. Hell, even the Contraband isn't a soft binding.

I have my Delta MVMNTs on my Snow Mullet for the pow and BC riding.

My Contrabands are sitting in my closet...

agree to Lindz

SPI is stiffer than delta for sure, but delta is not a soft bindings compare to softer ones.

Well, I did demo the 2011 deltas and they have redesigned the heel cup completely so maybe the previous years' aren't as flexy.

Anyway, the OP wants stiff bindings and SPI is pretty much the way to go for stiff Ride bindings.

But Delta is more than stiff enough for a freestyle board. SPi gets into freeride-specific flex and performance.

I mean, i know you can ride any binding on any board riding that anywhere and doing anything. It's all personal preference. But I really think for most people looking for a stiff freestyle binding, the Delta is pretty much where it's at. It's light as hell, and one of the stiffest "freestyle flex" bindings.

Yea the Delta is a freestyle binding. The SPI is more all-mountain. I was under the impression that the OP wanted stiff bindings. I guess you can say the Deltas are good since I really don't know how they flex for previous models.

First post in the thread.

This is why I wouldn't suggest an SPi.



He's got Contrabands and likes those already, and wants something stiffer. My vote? Ride Delta MVMNT. Without a doubt. He likes Ride bindings already...
