Default 2011 NS Premier F1 161 Binding Ideas

Hey guys,

I'm going to be getting the board in the topic. Does anyone have ideas for what some good freeride bindings would be? I like going fast, natural jumps, powder, trees, and anything that doesn't involve the park. Thanks for the input.

Edit: Additional info: 5'11" 205lbs 10 or 10.5 boot depending on the company (haven't picked out boots for this season yet).

You about the same size as I am and I like to ride the way you do. I ride Cartels and love them!

I use Ride CAD's on my Premier. I would recommend Ride Double Agents Ride SPI or Rome Targas. All good freeride bindings

At your weight and that board, Cartels are a terrible suggestion. Better ideas: Flux DMCC, Ride SPi/Double Agent, Rome Arsenal from previous years.

Cartels are a BAD IDEA!!! for you their more of a park bindings with huge foward lean.

You want more of a stiffer binding. I to am looking for a new all mountain binding. And so far my search has narrowed down to either the Rome Targa's or the Flux SF45. Can't really comment on them too much cause I haven't bought either one yet, but just by going though the either forum; these two bindings seem to be the best all mountain bindings so far.

First, thanks a ton for the responses. After doing a ton of reading, I'm leaning heavily toward the Flux SF45s. My only concern is the lack of canting or wedgie system in the footbed after reading a lengthy post about ride's new products on this forum. I'm also not too fond of having to order online before trying them out =(

Last I checked Cartels were rated at a 7. Stiffer than that? I know they are commonly used as a freestyle binding, but back down the forward lean and I have found them great for free riding.

i ride a 2010 159 premier with flow nxt-at and have yet to find a better setup. i was dead against flow for a long time, but over the last couple years their bindings have come a long way. surprisingly light, responsive, and very stiff thanks to the cabled highback. i put 65 hard days on them last year and did not have one single problem. gives flows a chance.

I'll add a vote for Flow. Try the NXT-FSE's. If you just don't wanna, then the only thing I'll add to the list so far are Forum Shakas. Though I never felt any benefit of Good Vibes they were super comfy and quite responsive. Definitely a high consideration for me for next year.
