Default GNU backdoor bindings

Specifically the 09/10' model. Are they any good? The seem very nice. Will they hold up good from park and all mountain terrain? Thanks and I just want peoples opinions on them. Thanks again in advance.

These are manufactured by SP Fastec. I have the SP Fastec Bindings. They are good, light and easy to use.

The only issue is you have to set them up properly. Over tighten the toe strap and you will find the high back will catch your boot when you lower the back.

There is a process to set up the boot in the binding and if done correctly they work just perfectly.

I don't ride park but bomb the mountain with them no problems. I know two riders who use them (one is a pro) and they swear by them. These bindings are becoming very popular down under this season. Seen lots and lots of riders using them.

ight for sure. It shouldn't be that hard should it? And since your here, I'm 15 years old in a rapid growth rate, and my shoe size is getting higher and higher very fast, so I don't wanna spend a lot on boots wqhen I'll need to replace them by the end of the season. Do you think these will hold up good for like 2-3 times to the mountain and some jibbing here and there? The price is right

There are more styles on eBay for the same price but here's an example...

Bod Barracud Mens Snowboard Boot Grey Size 10 code18-10 - eBay (item 140430894246 end time Sep-20-10 20:25:19 PDT)

Thanks again.

Danny, There is a saying "You only get what you pay for" I don't know the brand but I feel the price is too cheap and you may find yourself with some bad boots.

Yes, very true. I just thought whatever, because I'm only using them 3-4 times.

Danny...my advice is that, if you want to save some money, save it somewhere else other than boots. Nothing will ruin a day of riding faster than hurting feet.

On that note, look at boots from a manufacturer that's been around for a bit, even Sims, Lamar or something like that. By focusing on their higher-end entry level boots or their lower-end mid-level boots, you're bound to find something that's comfortable and won't cost you too much.

Oh, and ALWAYS test fit the boots live before buying.

I will also add that when you try them on do the laces up and walk around in them. Sit and talk with the retailer whilst you still have them on and the try and get a good 10-15mins of wearing them. You will find boots you thought were a little snug will actually feel better after 10 mins. And boots you think were ok will turn out to be too big.

A good retailer will know how to fit you into your boots.
