Girl Bindings

So I'm looking to get my girl a nice setup for her first board and was curious about what bindings would best fit her. She is on a budget and doesn't want anything over 140. She is also a 6.5 shoe size if that helps at all. I was told k2 indys are a great binding but then again, thats a mens binding. Is there much difference between women and men's? Thanks for the help.

I have the Ride VXN, not sure if it is similar to the LXH, mine works great, the only thing is it is a PITA to release the crochet at times. Last time out, towards the end of the day, I had no energy to yank it out and had to ask someone to do it for me....

If you want to buy her men's bindings, you need to bring her boot and see if it fits. If it slips laterally, don't buy them. I went all-in on Union Forces only to find that they were really too wide for a women's boot. I had to crank them down until my toes were numb before my foot stopped slipping. Bad news.

Bought a pair of Burton Lexas. Not cheap, but if you can hunt down a good deal on them, I highly recommend them. I'm coming off of a long boycott of Burton women's bindings. I owned Lexas from a few years ago and loathed them. Bought Escapades and hated them, too. Was in Montana, desperately needed a pair of women's bindings, caved and bought the Lexas, and have been loving them. LOVING them. They fixed the toe cap so it actually works without slipping. And they are light as fuck. I love them.

I haven't tried the Stilettos, but those were recommended as well.

theres a girl with a blog that reviews a lot of snowboard stuff. its Shayboarder.com She ends up trying a lot of mens equipment, as well as female specific stuff. I'd start my search there.

If she has a size 6.5 boot, that is pretty small. I would not get her men's bindings, they will be too big width wise! they make womens specific stuff b/c it is better suited for women. I personally like my k2 virtues. I thought the burton stilleto's felt cheap. I also like my ride LXH as an alternative, but the k2 virtues are way lighter.
