ride LX vs drake King bindings
 
l'm a new snowboarding, just 1 yr of expereince, looking to get new bindings already. I saw these and they seem alright and within my price range. I believe the ride is 2009/2010 model where as the drake is 2010/2011. Which of the 3 would you guys recommended? Thanks

Drake King Snowboard Binding 2010/11 - SportChek.ca

they are around 110$ cad. Do you think thats a reasonable price? or would be it cheaper elsewhere?

I have demoed a few ride bindings and I do not like them. They weren't comfortable at all (just my opinion) When I rode drakes I loved them, I say go with drakes!

where are you from? come into pickering sportchek friday night or saturday and I'll get you set up, i think we still have a pair of K2 CTC Cinch for $130 which are better than all 3 bindings. Ask for mike, no one else there knows all tooooo much about board stuff

2011 Ride LX is a pretty good binding now

CTC is crap

dang, no more ride LX on sale (2009/2010). K2 is more of a skiing brand than snowboard. But thanks for the recommendation!!

Dude, you are a newbie...you have no clue what you are talking about. K2 is as legit as can be in the snowboarding biz. I would not buy the clinch bindings, but you should checkout other k2 bindings.

His comment made me chuckle as well. Let him be, we know his type

Ride is owned by K2, which is owned by the same company that owns cookware and portable grill brands.

well you know those e-tailers for snowboard, l never see k2 on sale from them so l took the assumption they weren't on the same quality as other more known brands

K2 is making some of the best boards out there right now.
