'05 bindings on '11 board ok?

I'm pretty set on the slayblade and at $550 it's going to eat all of my budget. I.E. no money left for new bindings.

Is there any problem with using my 2005 Burton P1 ($250) bindings on the 2011 slayblade? They have the same mounting and hardware but I don't know if I'll lose any performance by mix-matching brands and dated technology. I love my Burton boots and P1 bindings. Thoughts?

I have a friend that ran P1's on his K2 Zepplin so no problem. As long as the technology is the same it is alright to mix and match bindings and gear.

No. terrible idea. The slayblade is only worth while if you have the 2011 K2 Cinch bindings. You stance must be exactly +21/-6 at a width of 21". Otherwise the board is completely worthless and in fact may explode.



Your bindings will be fine. Attach, Strap up and shred.

I still have a pair of Burton Customs from 02ish. They still are mounted on my splitboard right now.
$900 board + Ancient bindings. Still rides great although it did get a ladder strap replaced last season.

Don't matter, it will be just fine. Wasn't the "gaspedal" invented in 05?

Great news. Thanks for all the feedback. With all the changes in tech over the past few years I wasn't sure if my P1's would cooperate with K2's harshmellow and all that. I'm pumped. Have a good season.

You can ride an '05 board with '11 bindings, but not vice versa. Abort!
