I only get about 15-20 days max so boards last me at least 5 years
I don't play in the park so my bindings weight aren't an issue.
I tried and liked the Ride Contraband but missed the quick easy entry on my Cinch. What I didn't like about the Cinch was their "Friction Buckle" which I now understand its function. I combined the two and now have a lighter single buckle binding just in case I get stuck in powder. The Ride Base has a catcher for the little toe, I just use the old strap that came with my bindings. I hope someone would manufacture this so I don't need to buy two bindings for my next board.
Ive got the ride timeless 161 shown above. I hadnt ridden it for about 5 years but took it with me this year and fell in love with it again. we had some powder days and this thing was spectacular. Ialso a ride TMS concepct which is a bit more forgiving.
