Default Lightweight Canted bindings

I'm looking for bindings for my 2012 Mod. I was just gonna get the 390s but I heard they weren't that light and I want a lighter binding.
So what I'm looking for is a lighter weight binding that is canted.

I'll mainly be doing freeriding and park. Nothing too soft. I haven't held the 390 in person so . Maybe it is light, but I didn't hear anything about it being real light.

They're average weight. Maybe look at K2 Formulas or Companies.

Hey Thunder

Take a look at the Mob Boss binders. Lightweight unibody plastic construction with the Yes I Cant System, but still super durable. Most shops should have 'em available right now.

Hey Snowklinger

Yes we do. All of our bindings come with a variation of the SubBase Pad. It's an EVA/Rubber pad that absorbs chatter, adds compression, and dampens your ride.

So, to answer your question, your best bet is the Mob Boss.

I have last years Mobs on my Garage Rocker. Are they still as soft as last year or did they stiffen up a bit. I loved em, but they were too soft for a snappy board.

Burton Malavitas are very light weight construction and have autocant. Not as good as actual canting but it helps settle your knee in comfortable position. I was ok rocking them with a 23.5" stance, 5'7", 30" inseam. Normally I don't particularly care for Burton hardgoods but their bindings are bombproof and well designed. Straps are ultra kush.

Hey Thunder,

The highback and flex should still be the same but we changed up the ankle strap and toe cap for 2013. The ankle strap got borrowed from the 390, so it's thicker and super comfortable. It will also provide a bit more support and response, since it's gotten beefed up from the 2012 Mob strap.

If you aren't stoked on the flex of the Mobs, you really can't go wrong with a pair of 390's. They are definitely lighter than Targas, but not as light as Mobs, so they are right in the middle. Honestly your best bet is to find the nearest store and just pick one up and see for yourself. Everyone is going to have a different definition of what "light" means to them.

Hope that helps.

Shred on

Check out the Ride Rodeos, or if you want something stiffer try the Capos. I think they're both lighter than the 390s (haven't put them on the scale next to each other, but just from handling them both).
