Default just a thought...

money is tight right now for some flows or hybrids so i'm wondering if anyone had tried to strap their boots on their binding with the toe strap not fully buckled? what i meant is that when you get off the lift,the toestrap is buckled about two notches so you can just slide your boot in and strap a little quicker without sitting down?

Just learn how to strap in standing up. Not really sure how only having the toe strap buckled two notches would make it any easier or faster, you still have to tighten it before you go.

Have you ever felt it when the toe strap disengages coming down a run? Not fun. Not worth being lazy and riding with a loose toe strap. Is money really tight or your helmet?

thanks for the replies,but i have tried to strap standing up and its a hit or miss, but i don't mean riding with a loose toe strap.its just as i get off the lift get to a corner,slide my boot in without sitting down, then connect the middle strap and crank down on both.its basically the same except your toestrap is on already but, as i mentioned its just a thought, though the offer on the flow 5 by slyder is pretty interesting but...gotta pass.

Unless you have a medical problem that would prevent you from doing it, work on your flexibility. Being able to strap up without sitting down is pretty damn convenient.

edit: my apologies. didn't think of medical reasons as your motivation.

besides that, you can just strap in on the lift if the place allows it/doesn't care (place where i go doesnt)

Salomon. Look at them. They force this on you.

check out the salomon chief bindings, they have the "fast fit" toe straps that never come fully out so all you have to do is put your foot in and start ratcheting. ive ridden salomon bindings for a couple years and their in my top 3 bindings.

its medical issue but i'm working on flexibility for this season and until i can't do it anymore.i use to ski but my knees kills me after riding all day and snowboard is much easier on my knees.also my lower back is another PITA so sitting down strapping in and trying to stand up was my biggest problem.but with all this ailment,it won't deter me from snowboarding,just trying to make it slightly easier on my body.
