Default another contraband question

im leaning toward the ride contrabands....i had the ride betas and loved them. the only thing im really worried about is the feel while im in the binding...It wont feel too loose or too much pressure on the toe if i set it up right will it? Ive got a k2 parkstar 157 wide and love it but i would love to find some cheap green contrabands in xl anybody know where i could find some?



something like this would be awesome

Between the front strap adjustment and the one on the buckle you can get your toe as tight or loose as you want. Just take your time setting them up and they will be golden.

Ehh those were the viper contrabands from two years ago I believe, doubt you'll find em anymore. Those don't even come with the canted beds either, as far as the strap goes it's snug. They're just really soft bindings. Might want to try the nitranes if you want a stiffer binding but still want the contraband setup.

I have those exact bindings. Used em once and put em away cause my size 13 boots were just TOO big for them. They say the range is 11-13, but I would say they are safe for 11-12 size boots.
My boots fit in them but it was difficult to pull the toe strap to the "centre" of my foot. Pain in the but for me.
I will sell them, but I live in Japan and shipping might be expensive...

I'd put Nitranes on a Parkstar.

i really dont wanna spend the extra cash on the nitranes, and i know they had strap problems on last years, the ones i would buy. I found Ride contrabands for 135, but would they be too soft? I spend 70% park 30% free...
