Yay, first post.
This is my second season riding, and I recently bought a set of used board/bindings. However, every time I went this season my outer foot (pinky toe area) would hurt like hell. Eventually I figured out that my bindings were too small for my boots and decided that I had to replace the bindings. I plan on buying a new board next season, as I don’t really have the funds to buy both a board and bindings right now. I’m hoping to get some gear that will last at least 3-4 years.
I mostly do all-mountain riding with the occasional jump here and there. I never venture into the park. Boots are size 10 New Balance.
I looked at several bindings, and was wondering which ones I should go for, or if anybody has any suggestions as for what to get. Unfortunately, I’m in Canada so some brands (Union) come at a huge premium... (+$100 for the Atlas, seriously?)
Burton Cartel Restricted ($270)
Flux TT30 ($195)
Flux SF45 ($240)
Ride Capo ($270)
Also, I've heard that the TT30s don't have as much dampening/shock absorption. Does anyone have any extra info about this?
I need bindings by Feb 18th, as I'm heading out on a trip on the 20th
Thank you very much!
