Do you warranty a snowboard when it gets a chip?

Yep, and this is why I gave up on Technine bindings.

isnt it tho? you used the bindings for 20 plus days, obviously they are going to wear, just as a board would wear, its expected. your rachets show how much wear you put on the bindings. deal with it or buy new ones with no vinyl layer.

I'll admit for 20 days it does seem like an awful lot of wear, but to be honest every pair of bindings I've ever owned has had similar signs of wear eventually. (Except for the old break-a-toe bindings from the 90's). What's up with the first picture though, that's an odd spot to have that much of a gouge out of the strap? Maybe it's just the angle of the photo...

You buy a board expecting it to get chipped, scratched, etc... You don't buy bindings expecting the straps to start disintegrating after two months. I don't think 20 days is a lot, besides nothing else on them is showing signs of wear... I don't know why people are getting so defensive about this post lol.
not being defensive, i have no reason to be as i dont own technine. im just stating that its comon for bindings to wear, doesnt matter how many days you really put on them its how you take care of them. and vinyl coated anything tends to peel off after a decent amount of wear. ill admit the bindings do look horrible for 20 days but again days dont really matter unless your talking about the base of a board. buy leather ones and never worry abiout this again.

Idk, I'll ride them til they break it just sucks having them look like crap already.
i hear that, i have ocd about things like that. its not that i care how it looks to other people its just i cant stand looking at it myself. im the same way with shoe laces, they have to sit perfect "x" pattern or else i have to relace them.

but yea vinyl coated ish sucks. get real leather ones when yours break, or you get sick of looking at them

Yeah, it's very common. Don't get me wrong, Technine makes some nice products, but for the most part the company does not have too great of a track record with reliability and warranties. Technine is slowly becoming the laughing stock of snowboarding.
