Freeride/Charging Bindings
 
It's about time that I get a complete new set up... Bindings will be mounted on either a Ride Highlife or a Neversummer Heritage.

I'm between Ride El Hefe's, Burton Diodes, and Union Force MC. Comfort, response, and weight are my top priorities.

I love my Ride NRC's for freeride and Cartels for park. My only complaints with the NRC's are the sticky ratchets and their weight. It looks like ride corrected this over the years.


Any suggestions?

diodes on my Heritage.. they're the last burton product i'm running but they're sick.

featherlight and very comfortable straps

Go with the Union SL's. I upgraded from the Force to these on my all mtn board and they friggin' charge. They're extremely light and responsive. Toe ratchets and straps are an upgrade over previous years.

I had normal SL's. Couldn't drive into the highback cause it just twists and folds. Landed on my jibstick and stayed there till I sold them, and now they're on a Nitro Subzero. Which the kid likes them there. So yeah, good park binding on a super soft jibstick...

If you're really willing to drop the money I doubt you'll really find anything more responsive than Diodes. Very slim chance Flux DMCC's might be, might. El Hefe's are probably going to be the more beefy of the three, maybe able to take a beating better.

The SL's are SOFT? Bahahahahaha...

El Hefe's are bulletproof and extremely responsive, I have them on a 2012 NS Raptor, might be overkill for a Herritage.

If you like your NRC's, I think you could look at the Ride Capos. They're about the same in terms of stiffness and response. If you want to step up in response and stiffness, the El Hefes would be a good option. Personally I'd put a set of Capos on a Heritage, but it's all personal preference.

Diodes are good, Rome Targas should be given a look too, I'll pass on Unions.

Go grab your highback and twist it. Soft. Not my fault.
