Ride RX vs K2 Formula

I am looking at last years models Ride RX ($129.99)or K2 Formula ($95,99). They will most likely go on my new ride crush, but may end up on my rome slash, if I decide to move my deltas to the crush. I've had cartels in the past and hated the highback. I love my deltas and am looking for something similar. My riding style is the whole mountain is my park, and I do like to spend some time in the park. I was leaning towards the rx since, I hear they are similar to the older deltas but was also attracted to the price on the Formulas. What do you guys think?

rx: adjustable heelcup, wedgiebeds, gel grip toe strap
formula: asym highback, one-piece chassis

they're a little softer than deltas

I don't think you could go wrong with either binding. However, the cantted footbeds may be worth the extra $35.

If you love your current Rides, it would make sense to get another pair. It'll be a similar feel and fit. This year's K2 Formula is pretty nice though. My buddy just picked up a set.

I think I'm going to go with the RX. I almost bought them, but found the Formulas at that price, and thought I'd give it a look. Thanks for the advice. Now just waiting for snow. Should be on the white stuff in a week or two.

Colorado. A-Basin should be opening soon, granted the weather stays cold. Here is what I've been drooling over.

I'm in Southern Ontario and we got a few inches of snow the other day and now it's 64 degrees. I hate global warming.
