Going to have to buy new bindings...

Not entirely pleased...

Bought men's Union bindings. They worked fine out east. Took them out west and they're just too big for my tiny lady feets.

So some suggestions would be helpful. I'm looking at the Ride Bandita Contrabands for my NS Pandora, and the Rome Madisons or Ride Sigmas for my NS Infinity.

I like the response of the Union Forces, so I want something in a women's binding that can offer me good stiffness, a really nice highback, and straps that aren't going to cut off blood flow. Something highly adjustable is preferred. I ride duck, so if the highbacks can move, that's a serious plus. I want something with a cushy footbed.

I want a light, but sturdy freestyle binding. I have the Flites, and I like that they are effing light. I want something I can pop in and out of easily. Something with cushy footbeds and a reliable highback. Not too stiff, but also not too flexy. I'm just starting park, so I need something that I can progress with.


Oh yea. And if anyone is interested in the Union's, PM me and I'll give you the details. I can't ship anything until after the 1st of February as I'm away from home until then. I'll post a thread about it over in stuff for sale.

If you like Flow, check out the Flow Minx SE. It's a medium flex and also very light. If you want a stiffer (and more expensive) bindings, look towards the Prima Se.

K2 Agogo is also a solid choice. I'd say setting up is more difficult than Flows, but worth it. The redesigned auto toe straps for 2011 is excellent. Very boot conforming. Looks flimsy, but I didn't have any issues with their mens line the times I demoed it.

The snow was really sticky at Snowbowl. I rode them four times back east on packed pow and hard pack. So when I got into the sticky stuff, my boot started to slip around in them unless I cranked them down until they were smushing my foot. They're just not the right size for my boot, unfortunately. I really liked them otherwise. I bought Burton Lexas... Rode them today at Big Sky with conditions varying from hard to a couple inches of fluff. They worked out better. No foot pain. No blood flow issues. Not a huge fan of Burton bindings, but they're doing their job, and I suppose that's all I can ask of them. I had a pair of Escapades before I bought the Forces, and the toe cap kept slipping, but the new Lexas have a re-designed toe cap, so they're actually tolerable. My sister and I both had older Lexas for a while and we would affectionately refer to the Burton toe cap as the Crap Strap. I guess they put some work into them.
