That's the major thing about these... it is superbly comfortable. It's like you don't have anything on your feet, yet you get all the support like you do. The highbacks seem flimsy, but Hoon said in his review that he accidentally stepped right on the highback and was convinced he broke something. Nothing broke, not even that Hammock thing.

The hammock contraption on the highback hugs the back of your boot. So you feel the support there even when you aren't flexing into the highback. However, the highback doesn't engage until you lean into it.

It's a pretty flexy binding though so it's not going to be for the person looking for that aggressively responsive binding. I place it as an all-mountain freestyle binding with a bias towards freestyle.
Ahh I see. I need something a little more well rounded like the Cartels.

I never rode the Prophecy so someone else will have to chime in. The cartel highbacks are certainly stiffer than the Genesis though.

when i asked the employees at one of the burton stores, they told me prophecys are stiffer. i think the genesis is going to be less responsive than the prophecy. this is only based on what I was told, not by my experience.
