Yeah you can do it...See how the ladder and the strap fit up under the baseplate? All you have to do is modify the new straps to fit the same way. I did this with a pair of Technine straps on my Force.

The only problems I could see so far (without the ride straps to inspect in person) is that the nubs are on both sides of the union ladder and strap. The Rides only have it on one side. The only other thing is that the nub on the rides may be a different diameter or thickness.

The straps are only $35. If they don't fit, sell them to someone else or give them as an Xmas gift.

Drill them out and insert your own plastic...the Technine straps I used had holes to put screws through, so I had to drill it to make the hole diameter larger and put in my own plastic piece

Oh drilling on a pair of bindings sounds like a fantastic idea....

I'm pretty sure they are talking about drilling out toe straps not the actual bindings. I tried this with Technine and Burton toe caps and did not like the out come but it might work better for you.
