Stiffest/most responsive female binding?
 
I'm replacing my K2 Virtue bindings with a stiffer or more responsive binding. This is mainly to reclaim some of the board responsiveness I lose from having small feet. I've done my research, but I really can't find ANY female bindings that are highly responsive - most are in the
all-mountain freestyle category. I know that Burton Escapades are pretty responsive, but I've also heard that they're not all that much more responsive than the average binding. I was also looking into Union Trilogy bindings, but they only come in a size s/m, which means that it probably won't fit my boots very well.

Currently ride Rome Madisons and K2 Virtues - both are similar in terms of flex. I like the Madisons better, but they are far too wide for my boots.

Soooo .....I need something else.

Flow Prima SE, Union Trilogy, Ride DVa's, Salomon Absolute Pure's.

What size feet do you have? Smaller than a 6?

Ride DVa's are the stiffest female bindings I know of....

Extremo: I wear a 4.5 women's boot. Tiny!

I'll check out the DVas - they're on sale at REI for $84.93. :D

What boots do you wear? My GFs feet arent much bigger than yours and she's having some trouble finding new boots that fit! Thanks:)

Have you considered new stiffer boots or adding an ankle brace to your current boots. Something like this. SixSixOne Race Ankle Brace : Dirt bike parts and accessories Australia

john doe: I'm thinking about a stiffer boot, too. It's hard for me to find boots that fit, though, so I'm reluctant to go there. Never considered an ankle brace - I'll look into that. Thanks!

oldlady: Mine are Salomon Ivys and they fit great! Some of the smallest boots on the market. I know Burton makes some of their lower end boots in smaller sizes and I *think* Forum, Bonfire, and Nitro also make at least one small boot.

Sounds like she's going to have to shop in the kids department. She'll save some serious dough
