Default What is the lightest binding on the market...

And do you know how much it weighs?

If you have any other input on this binding it would be appreciated.

Cheers

Are you being sarcastic I'm in the market for a light binding. I'm also curious why weight is not a listed metric for hardgoods. I find it an important factor important when choosing my stuff...

not sure, but you should prob have comfort as your #1 priorty for bindings. Who cares if it is light if you can't ride it.

Most bindings are so close to each other that just a little bit of snow packed on your board will completely negate any weight savings. Like others have said, just find a pair that you like and feel comfortable riding.

I saw a thread from another forum a last year that had all the bindings weighed and the contrabands came in the lightest. I don't know if that is still true since they have changed since the first ones a good bit.

There may not be a single lightest binding. With the large size range of bindings the lightest for a size size 7 boot could be different then a size 8 boot.

I am curious, are you trying to get the lightest setup possible since you're asking about lightest boots and about the Burton Method on another thread. Do you have a specific purpose behind this?
