light weight bindings

Hey guys,
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.

Cheers

Auto Evers? That's probably your best bet for all three of those criteria. The rest of what you have listed is average for weight.

Snowboarding Is...

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

^^^ 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

Ride bindings straps are killer comfy, weight is decent on them too. Burton Cartel is also a solid, solid option. Super versatile.

Forum Shaka's are another option. Theyre similar to Cartels

Check out the Ride Capo. I've had 12 days on them so far and I love them. The straps on these things are killer.
