Default 2010 or 2012 Targa

OK, So I doubt it really matters but I figured I'd ask the advise of those of you who are on top of things. I just found a NS SL at a local shop and picked it up. I'm pretty sure I'm going to put Targas on it. My question is I'm having a kind of hard time finding white Targa's, if I do find some should I grab them or is there anything changing that would be worth waiting for next years? Thanks guys!

I am pretty sure that Leo said that the 2012 Targas were sick.

Nice, that's what I was wanting to hear. haha. At this point I don't mind riding the end of the season on my old bindings if it's worth waiting for next years model.

Thanks!

They're changing the toe strap for sure. Super comfy webbed strap. I haven't ridden the '11s so I can't compare, but they were a nice set of bindings for sure.

I have the 11's and they're solid I have no complaints otter than Rome should make a M/L for boots 9 to 11 the large romes are a bit in the big for boots that size and the smalls to small.

To add what David_Z said about the cap strap...the high back and forward lean seem much improved. This years forward lean cam lock easily loosens...and in my case broke (got a replacement quick time though). I'd def wait for next years if you can...the white colourway for next years is is sick..the Bjorn colourway is not my cup of tea...but will definitely be popular with others.

^^I totally agree with the lean forward lock comment. I fixed mine by just wrenching down on the screw in the assembly though.

Looking at the picture, it looks like the highback and toe strap are the biggest changes between the 2011 and 2012. The 2010 lacks the canted footbed that the 2011 and 2012 have. I'm hoping they've modified the two piece footbed, they're a real pain in the ass if you ask me. Ride's one piece footbed is SOOOOOO much easier to work with.

IIRC from the demo it is still going to be a two-piece footbed. I remember the tech had to fiddle with it.

If you can hold out, the 2012 is DEFINITELY worth the wait. Those new toe straps are friggen tasty. They hug your boot's toe box like a hippie hugs a tree.

The highbacks are indeed improved. I didn't fiddle with forward lean on them though so can't comment on that. It also has a new adjustment feature on the upper portion of the highback similar to the Flow FSE bindings.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed next year's Targas. The demo pair did have paint chips though so that part looks unfixed lol.
