Default Ride EX

Are these good for a beginner. I'm 6'5" and 230lbs. I have vans aura boots at the moment but might exchange them. Haven't decided that yet. Since I bought everything at once I'm hoping the boots the board and bindings will last 3 years. Go between 10-20 the first year and probably more after that.

Most people seem to like them who have them. Just hope they hold up for a while because of my size. They seem like the best bang for buck at the time but wonder if I should have gone one more step up

I haven't had any problem with mine and they're pretty responsive for the price. I basically look at them like a workhorse model. They'll get the job done for sure.

Yeah, I have a pair hanging around. Definitely a good set bindings for the price.

More expensive bindings may be more responsive or customizable, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll be stronger or more durable. The same aluminum is used in the EX as in Ride's higher-end models. I believe the same plastic is used in the straps as well, so that covers the most crucial components.

I'm more interested in all mountain then doing tricks in the park. My board is a 172 ride yukon 2010 so if I decide to do the park thing down the road it would be with a different board

That's a pretty big board. EX's are wicked, especially for the price. I got a pair for my brother, and rode them for a little while last year before picking up my new gear. Comfortable, decently responsive, and look awesome. Definitely a durable binding, as I didn't do any damage.
