Catek Freerides, I can guarantee you there does not exist a stiffer strap binding (that's probably a good thing). I rode a prototype back in 2003 or 2004, were too stiff/heavy for me (although they've improve the design since then, dropping the weight by like 40%).



Nidecker use to make stiff bindings... recently I've been riding Burton C60s, but they are crazy expensive at normal price (I got them for 70% off clearance). I have a pair of CO2 I found during the summer, which I plan to try once there is reasonable snow.

When it comes to stiff I love my bent metal step in's. They are little old, I bought a backup set for 30 bucks on eBay. All aluminum base plate. My fav free ride binding yet, just bought some union force sl's Im excited to try.

Sorry to steal your thread! I'm looking at buying a Kessler Ride on one of those internet deals (must have 5 buyers but it's 50% off the $1300 MSRP so worth it methinks).

Here's the problem, I'm riding a Burton T7 with C60 EST bindings and they obviously won't fit on a standard 4 hole pattern.

What's the best option for a sniff as shit binding? Looking at the Catek's but I've grown very used to the light C60s and the ratchets are smooth as butter. I wonder if I could find a pair of non-EST C60s somewhere?
