Of those three the 390's. Though I would add Raiden Zero. They felt really similar to me but with a little better heel padding. Air bags are legit.

What did you not like about the Mission? I demoed a pair of 2011 Missions yesterday and liked them, they reminded me a lot of my 2008 Cartels which I have always liked. I tried them on both a Custom Flying V and a Hero and rode a mix of park and all mountain.

to be clear, i havent tried 2011 Missions, mine are last seasons. but those last seasons are bad enough for me to never think about buying another pair. my experience:

really unresponsive piece of shit highback with a crappy toestrap that doesnt even feel like its there.

Can't go wrong with the 390's. Everyone loves them. I know I do

I have a word limit on my cynicism
