I am getting all new eq for the season and are trying to pick bindings. The board I have is Never Summmer Evo (2012) and the boots Burton Ion (2011). My last 2 bindings have been burton custom and Mission. The later was 2010 or 2009 edition. This one I thought was a bit too soft and got a bit unstable during high speed. Also unforgiving to hit jumps with. The Custom was a ok binding but i have progressed past it.
What im looking for is a very high end "all mountain" to "park" binding. I will be spending 5 months in val Thorens (France)so i dont want something half-good. I want a stabel but not super hard binding which will feel good and safe during high speed but still playfull enuff when hitting rails and kicks, with good damping and forgivness
The ones im currently thinking about are: Burton Cartel (restricted), Union Atlas, Rome 390 boss and Ride Capo. So if someone have experience with thous please give ur opinion or thoughts in the matter. (feel free to add bindings i might have missed that would fit my needs)
You're pretty much at the stage where you just need to try them on in the store and see which one fits your boot and the board the best. All solid choices. Seems to me the Capo is going to be the stiffest while the 390 would be softest.
most of these options seem overly stiff for the evo...
Did not see that at first. Good point... Targas are too much for the Evo. Capos probably too much also. You could do Cartels on the Evo. 390s a lot of people on the forum here are using an Evo/390 setup I think.
