Binding Comparisons
 
Alright I ride in the park all the time and hit rails and jumps in the park. Just got a new 134 burton hero from 2011 and need binding help. What's the best for me for my needs: Union Contacts, Union Flites, Union Cadet DLX, or Rome 390. Please HElp me out here

I recommend the Flux RK30's, my friend has them and they absolutely kill...
2011-2012 FLUX BINDINGS / LINE UP [RK30]

Unless you dont like flux, then the Rome 390's are ok...

i used my friends 390s when my bindings blew out last season and loved them i dont know much about union bindings so i can't help you there

Are the Flux rk30's like the rome 390's? Do the rk30's have much shock absorbtion for jumps?

They are especially made for jumps.. These are park bindings with special materials and the cushion support is great.
I was able to feel the difference and now i am a huge fan of flux bindings.

They have a youtube video if you search for it that explains those bindings pretty well.

Thanks. So Flux rk30's are the best all around park binding??? oh yeah also are they durable like Unions are?

zon233 08-31-2011 02:07 PM

Union's have always been awesome at Durability, So far the Flux's my friend has are holding out very well.
I dont see any issues with the ratchets or the action on them period. Everything is still working smoothly..

I would say yes: The RK30's are flux's best park binding. If you watch the video you'll see how awesome the highback bends.
The vid is right on their website.

so flux rk30's on Burton hero is the best way to go?

My buddy has a new pair of Flux bindings and they look like fisher price made them.

Very minimal padding was my biggest concern.

Rome 390 are a phenomenal park binding... I don't currently know of any binding more comfy for park riders.

I'm really liking what k2 is doing with the harshmellow, and just picked up a pair myself.

Call me old or whatever, but I like a nice padded binding that feels like a cadillac when I ride.

I think it might be their colorways.
