I was just talking about I had just heard it and holy smokes... Didn't want to step on any toes. I am not saying just because he signed with them that I have to have some. Your comment reminded me of that air force one song That was good...

Haha, don't pay us any mind

Just general skepticism towards spancership and what 'the kids' will want in 5mins or so time when they catch wind of the 'news'

While I'm sure that no one goes out and buys them just because Rice is using them.. One would hope that a superstar like him riding them would mean the company and its R&D will progress at a higher rate because of it.

Are you sure about that? There are some pretty easily influenced people around.

Clearly they're taking all those royalties they would have to pay for a cap style toe strap and spending it on their team. So take the $40 you save per binding and upgrade it yourself. That is the way I look at it.

Travis Rice Joins Union Bindings | TransWorld Snowboarding

Like 3 weeks ago

What was he rocking before? It's a pretty big name. But sponsorship doesn't equal good shit. People always talk about the sick riders who rock shitty Technine gear
