Default Looking for a lightweight binding

Hey guys. I need some help finding a good lightweight freestyle binding. I ride the 390's now and I love them but I'd like to look into a second pair that is lighter. I've had my eye on the Ride betas but I was interested in any other suggestions.

Thanks!

Union Flites. I own a pair and they are light as fuck.

I actually felt like Contact Pros were lighter than Flites...

I haven't picked up a pair of Contact Pros to know for sure, but I mean, the Flite is named that because, according to Union, they are "Fucking Lite". Looking at the Contact Pros though, if they're lighter it's due to slightly less material in the highback and heelcup. I don't think the OP can go wrong with either one though.

Agreed. I have felt them side by side and the Pro's felt a little lighter. I have not ridden both though so I can not comment on the different feel. I did really like the pros though, favorite Union.
