I have the Ride Contrabands (Nitrane). Light, easy to clip in, quick... BUT I had a failure on one of the toe straps, it completely seperated from the base! This occurred on day 15 on the mountain.. I'll be looking elsewhere for my next binding.

Yes, they were set up correctly :-)

I have contrabands and love them, alot of the failure come from improper set-up. That is the big down it takes awhile to set them up right and if you don't they will fail but done right they are great the best binding I have ever rode.

I have the original Contrabands and have had zero trouble with them. Pain to set up but good once done. The rachet did take a little breaking in to get it to release easily. The Nitranes had an issue with the toe strap breaking because of the design used to add the webbing part. Previous thread that I found with a quick search. http://www.snowboardingforum.com/bin...d-nitrane.html

I also ride a pair of the 2010 Nitrane Contrabands. They are comfortable, and easy to use once setup properly. Last year the Nitrane models of the contraband did have a quality issue with the material the strap was made from. If you had/have an issue Ride sends out a replacement within a week for you (or you can see your local dealer.)

The only hassle was the initial setup of the binding, however, I am planning on picking up this years Optimo Contraband which will make the setup very easy.

The Weggie footbeds are great too.

Ride knows this was an issue. It happened to a kid I work with. They have since fixed the problem and are offering color-correct replacements with the improved design for free. Call em tomorrow and they will send you some.
