female Need stiffer, responsive womens bindings

Hi there: I am looking for something similar to the RIDE SIGMA MVMT bindings from 2008. ( a med-stiff highback, great response, and comfort and shock absorbtion etc.)

Since the new Rides all have a toe strap that I don't like, I was looking at:

ROME STRUT

ROME MADISON

BURTON ESCAPADE

SALOMON RELAY ELITE

I have SALOMON KIANA boots from 2010 and love them ( size 5.5 which are a little big though)

Thanks

Thanks so much, Snowwolf! I will look into the Madisons then, as I like natural kickers and small jumps in the park too. Plus, I have small feet!

P.S. And good luck with your move or finding a new job, you'll find something great in the future, I am sure, and in the mean time, enjoy riding!

If you like Salomon's the Absolute Premium bindings are very responsive. Comparable to the Escapades I think. The past two years Salomon bindings have much better toe straps and buckles. I rode my friend's board with Lexa's the other day and I liked them too.

My first pair of bindings were Salomon Stellas, and I switched to Absolute Premiums last year. OMG my riding changed for the better.
I had to buy second hand as grabbing these in Canada are upwards of $300 as the US have many, but don't ship. I really really like them.
I want a nice new pair as the ones I have, the previous owner busted the base plates (one thing I don't like is the scew in foot-beds, does not make for quick angle adjusting, especially on a super cold day!) but I have doctored them to make it work because I love them.
If you were to get these you would think it money well spent, especially if you got them on sale.

I am considering Rossi Divas or Raiden Eris as a lower cost alternative?

ESCAPADES! Have you seen that highback?! Awesome.

For realzies though, Lexa's would be great, Absolute Premiums, Flow Prima, or Raiden Eris.

Hey Nivek, Ill have a look at your recc's too. Have you or someone you know tried both the Lynx and Eris in the Raiden range. Looks like Eris is aimed for park riding and Lynx for all mountain, but how does Eris hold up in different riding conditions out of park like, ice, speed or pow?

My wife runs Escapades on her freeride board.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

I'd say between the Raidens its just the opposite. Characteristically with Raiden the Unibody plastic bindings are softer more park oriented than the plastic/aluminum ones. Its like Pushers vs Phantoms.

So for more all mountain I would say get the Eris.
