Default Good bindings for a Yes Big City

So after much deliberation I have decided to go with a Yes Big City 156 as my hard charger.

I'm at a loss though as to what binding to get. I've been Iterested in trying Unions the last few seasons. I've been looking at the Union Atlas SL and MC metafuse. Maybe the Contact Pro. Are any of these stiff enough to match up with the Big City?

Any recommendations on other bindings?

Thanks for the reply Hodgepodge! I suppose I'm lucky enough that price isn't a huge concern. I bought Burton Malaria Restricted to go on my all mountain/jib stick. LOVE them, probably my favourite binding I have ever strapped into in my 14 years of riding.

That said the strap on the Diodes doesn't seem very cushioned. Anybody with experience?

I think you mean Malavita, not Malaria - lol. Cartel Restricted have the same ankle straps as Malavita/Malavita Restricted so I'd go with those if you like Burton.

Hahaha autocorrect... posting on my phone.

I'm not the type to get stuck on brands, I like to try out as many as I can, but yeah, Burton has treated me well. Especially these Malavitas. I don't think cartels are quite stiff enough for the Big City. Are they?

No thoughts on the Unions? Or the diode strap?

I've riden both Targas and 390 Bosses on mine and liked them both. I liked the Targas a bit more though.

The Atlas is on my wish list for sure. Super comfy and aggressive.

I have Diodes on my Heritage. Very light and very responsive. The ankle straps don't have much cushion but this is one of the ways Burton tried to increase toe side response. I find the bindings very comfortable and have never thought... man I wish the ankle straps had more cushion. Great bindings if you have the coin.

kingkoajmr: I had 390 Bosses on Banana Magic last season. They were decent for sure, but no where near stiff enough for what I would want to put on the Big City, and is it just me or do the Rome bindings feel kinda heavy?

Extremo: Yeah the Atlas's sound great, I'm just not sure they are stiff enough. Which version is the stiffest? Vanilla, SL, of MC? What is Union's stiffest binding?

Chef Jer: The Heritage was my runner up choice for hard charging. Thanks for the feed back on the strap. How do you find the RE:flex baseplate?

The SL and the MC are similar in stiffness, any difference would be insignificant. But def stay away from the Contact Pro.
