Default Bindings Buying Guide

Hello all,

I am fairly new to the forum I have been browsing for a bit and was hoping I could get some help finding some bindings. I have come across several topics about how to find a board but I am having trouble in finding articles about finding the right bindings.

My main question would be what is the main difference between all the bindings out there? I have seen a lot of people talk about "flex" but I am not really sure what this means.

I just purchased a GNU Rider's Choice and I have a pair of old bindings (Burton Freestyle) but I just wanted to check around to see what my upgrade options are. Looking for something under 200$ preferably.

Any suggestions/recommendations/advice would be greatly appreciated.


(sorry if this topic is redundant I wasn't able to find a similar one)

Well honestly under $200, and not including those at $199 your best bet is all K2. Either Indy's or Formulas.

Differences basically boil down to flex first, comfort second. Highback shape, construction, frame shape, construction, and material makeup, strap shape, construction, support, heelcup shape, base padding, base canting... these all effect how a binding feels under you. And all of that changes from someone like me to someone much lighter or much larger.

For the most part, price goes up, binding gets stiffer.
Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
