I'm looking for some light weight bindings that have a canting footbed and are relatively stiff. Mainly after comments regarding weight and comfort to help differentiate all the bindings on the market that seem very similar to me. I've mainly been looking at raiden blackhawks, K2 uprise and rome 390 bosses. They'll be going on a reverb rocker.
^^^ just bought a pair after much research and advice from the SBF community. Rode 'em yesterday on my Slayblade for the first time and per your criteria:
1. Very light weight!
2. Canted footbeds with Harshmello for dampening/cushioning. I've been amazed by how effective the Harshmello is!
3. Stiff (I think?) I have only ridden one other binding in the last 15 or so years, so I really have no idea how to gauge stiffness, but I'm a hard-charger and they were plenty responsive.
Thanks for that guys. I've had a look at them and they look pretty good except i have a bit of an issue with the ankle strap that is a little cut out. I've always ridden with a fairly stiff ankle strap ie rome arsenals.
I really like my Burton cartel's. Light and medium stiff. They flex pretty good side to side but are super responsive heel-toe.
I also found that any of the Ride bindings are fairly light. They have a minimalistic design and some sweet straps
