I LOVE gnu snowboards, have ridden everything but always been back to my gnu at the end of the day...BUT! and a big but, GNU bindings SUUUUCK! i broke my 1st pair, and i have ridden my cousins board which has gnu bindings and they are JUNK! not comfy, cheap feeling and just bad responsiveness. even if they have a good return policy, save the time and buy something that are proven to work and are durable...i feel a bit bad dissing gnu but there bindings are serious junk...do not buy them, do yourself a favor and listen to the people on here. I am a hardcore gnu fan but i know how to review something with no bias.
