Default Need Help on Picking Sick Bindings

Hi, I'm looking to buy either a Capita Stairmaster or Ultrafear to ride more park than mountain (I live on the east coast lol, we have ice/hills). However, I need a pair of park bindings that will still be able to be used throughout the mountain. I'm planning on taking a trip out west this year, so will these park bindings be able to handle the pow? And I've looked at Rome, Technine, and Union, but I really don't have a clue on a pair of good park bindings. If you could give me some insight on a good park binding/brands, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Brian

I pretty much only ride park, for that my favorites for 2012 are Raiden Zero's, Flux TT30's, and very likely Flow M9se's. I really like the M9's but the addition of some urethane in the back should make the just softer enough to get up into my top picks.

Flux's TT30s are good for all mountain. If you really wanted something buttery for the park, I'd check out the Flux RK30s. They are soft, but durable for anything you are trying to ride.

Ton's of great models out there. Just pick your flex. Flux DS 30's are unreal for strapped pure park riding....and Flow M9 SE's Youch!

The Rome 390's are pretty much good for everything including park as well as the Union Force's. The new 2012 Rome Targas have some new additions which I've heard will make them 10x better than last year and are good for park.

Thanks for all of the responses! Im stuck between the Rome 390 bosses and the flux rk30s. If you could give me differences such as flex, comfortability, etc that would be great. Im leaning toward the fluxs, but then there's also romes warranty on the straps etc. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Brian

Personally i don't like the Rome's too much. but that's just a personal opinion and nothing really concrete. Flux made an impact on me....
Flux will probably be more comfy because of the material used and they have a nice cushion too.

I'd go with the Flux RKs. They also have good customer service if straps or anything breaks. The bindings are covered under warranty for a year and they have plenty of straps to send you if they happen to break. Flux's materials are sooo comfy. You will notice the difference the minute you step in them. Hope this helps!
