Question Salomon, Ride or Rome

So I can get a deal on a cheap pair of bindings from Salomon, Ride and Rome.

Of the three companies which is best? They will be going on a Neversummer Evo. Which binding would you go with if you had the choice?

Thanks!

There really is no "best" binding company. All have their good and bad. Of the three you chose, my ranking would be Rome >= Ride > Salomon. I've demo'd and own Rome bindings and am a big fan as their products never disapoint. Ride is right up there with Rome, but issues with Ride's ratchets in the past and even a little bit on last year's models put it slightly under Rome. I've only demo'd Salomon's twice in my life and didn't find anything which stood out with their bindings. Ofcourse, all this is IMO.

I've only ridden Rome, but when I made my decision I would say I ranked my choices the same way as DC5R. There were other companies you're not considering that were nearly equivalent, so at that point you can choose based on style/price and not worry too much.

I currently have some Ride Contrabands but if I was picking up new bindings it would probably be the Rome 390 Boss.

thanks for the feedback guys.

Is it worth paying the extra for the bosses? I am pretty new to park so i wont be trying any crazy shit just yet.

It's really up to your budget. I haven't seen nor demo'd the bosses yet, but all the reviews have been very positive. If the difference is only a few dollars, I'd get the bosses.
