Default Titan Flux vs. Ride Contraband Please help!

I can't decide whether to get the ride contrabands or flux titans, anybody's opinion will help!!! I want light bindings but I hear that the titans are pretty heavy. I'm going to set it up with my ride dh2 which has a mid flex, and i ride mostly freestyle and all mountain. If anybody has experience with either of these bindings please share some input! thanks!

Titans are heavy? That's BS. Flux all the way.

to be honest i think both bindings are very controversy, i heard that the contraband does not hold your boot really good, and sometimes your toe will come out of that Y strap in the front.

on the other hand, some ppl elsewhere said flux are really cheap quality but i've just hear good things about from this forum, so My guess will be that you should see the titans in person to see if you like it or not

I've only put 20 days combined on my 2 pairs, so not really long enough for me to say anything definite, but so far so good. The build quality on them seems pretty solid...maybe what you read were referring to their earlier models when they first started?

Oh and i think someone on here weighed their titans compared to other bindings and they were slightly heavier, i don't think you would notice it.

Flux Titans. No contest. Go put on a pair, you'll be sold. They're so comfy you forget they're there.

All of this.


I don't even ride my Contrabands anymore, I've (in 2010) gotten some Union Force for my rail board (all mountain has Ride Delta).

Contrabands are just a weird stiffness for my setup I've found. It's a bit stiffer in the highback and softer in the toe than a 2 strap binder. Plus, th Force highback is softer than ANY Ride highback I have tried. Which is good for what I want.

Flux bindings are not THAT heavy, but they ARE pretty soft. Softer than my Unions, for sure, and I think a little bit heavier, though not that much, if anything at all.

Some people are way into them. I like bindings a bit stiffer, so I am not that stoked on them.

But for sure, the Flux will be softer than the Rides...

Do keep in mind with my suggestion that I'm a self proclaimed fanboy of Flux and hater of Ride!
