Raiden Zeros

Hi,

Would anyone tell me NOT to get Raiden Zeros? I already have Some Cartels and Arsenals (Rome) and after all variety is the spice of life!

I loved the Flux TT30s I tried but can only find 2012 and they are 80 more than the 2011 Zeros Any thoughts?

To go on a NS Evo BTW!

Cheers

If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?

I picked up the Raiden Phantoms for a change of pace from my malavitas and Asadachis, and really love the shit out of them. The impact absorption on the dual airbag system is amazing, the steel-reinforced straps are great, and the minidisc makes an appreciable difference in flex. My presses went from being alright to being able to throw 50 degree+ presses without a problem.

So yeah, totally don't get Raiden bindings. Awful pieces of crap.

I'm considering the Zeros on an Evo as well but I'm concerned they are going to be too soft since I don't spend the whole day in the park.

If anyone has ridden this setup, it would be a huge help.

I dont know what kind of quality improvement were made, or if any even needed to be made from the 2011's to the 2012's, but i fully support Raiden and the Zero's were super good.

I rode the 2012's on a few different decks and really dug them. I'd think they'd match up well with an Evo even if youre not spending all your time in the park.

Nice one Nivek. But that said, if you had an Evo would you be putting Phantoms or Zeros on it for 50% park 50% cruising?

It's really gonna come down to what you like in binding.

Do you want more response or a looser skate feel?

The Zero's are skate-E-er.

I have size 10 DC Super Park boots, should I go with the medium or large Zero? Seems to be right on the border. I'm thinking I go with the large since the added rigidness of a larger size may be welcome.

If it were me I would rather be snug in a smaller binding than flopping about in large! I'm pretty sure that US10 will fit the medium. Take them along to a Nitro selling shop!!!!!

My other binders are on the stiffer side of medium I guess. Are the Zeros a similarish binding to the 390 in terms of flex and highback flex etc??

Softer, more like a more responsive K2 Indy. Or a TT30 with a slightly stiffer frame and slightly softer Highback.
