Default K2 Formula (2010)

Was on a budget when I was buying my board so I grabbed last years Formulas for $99. Not a bad deal. They worked really well for me until about last week (bought them at the beginning of January) when I went out to ride. The strap was worn at an early notch in an irregular way and the crank thing skips a gear(?) now so I already have to replace the buckle and black track thing.. Not very happy about how fast that was, but does anyone know roughly how much those two small parts cost? I tried looking it up online but I can't find replacement parts for that binding, I'd have to register my bindings, ten submit a request to K2, etc etc...

Go into a shop that carries a good amount of K2 and as long as the shop isn't stupid they'll just give you some buckles or just charge you like $5-$10. Those Formulas were some of the better bindings of the last 5 years. That is an odd problem and shouldn't happen again.

They were such a good binding that when they released this years Indy's as last years Formulas without the hinge I still sold those more than anything else.

Thanks for the input. I know now what caused the problem, luckily. The person who I had set up my board and bindings didn't do it all the way... he just bolted the bindings on for me in a stance he thought fit and that was pretty much it. It was my first time ever riding so I didnt realize there was much more - INCLUDING centering the toe strap, which was never done, so the strap was always pulling to one side- causing the irregular wear... So Im gonna do just what you recommended and hope for the best. Thanks for the response, man. I really appreciate it.

That sounds like just a ladder strap issue and not a ratchet. Take a pair of scissors and cut the strap right at the notch that's effected.

The affected notch is at about 90% of the tightness I wear my bindings so it'd make it a complete bitch to try and strap up each time... However, now that you have referred to it as a ladder strap, and I did not previously know what the damn thing is called, it'll be much easier for me to replace. hahaha. But you are right, it is just an issue with the ladder strap, the buckle only skips over a "gear" because it is stuck on the worn down notch.

Thank you very much for your response... Now I know what Im working with here.
