Would the hinge be bad for freeriding?

Is it mostly a freestyle type "feature"?

It's up to you, if you like lateral flex, then no it wouldn't be bad for freeriding. If you don't (a lot of free riders don't that's why you got hard booters and stuff), then it's probably not.

If you want a binding that's got a buncha carbon in/on it, but no hinge, try the Union Chargers.

Who said anything about groundbreaking. You and your Salomon bindings suck

So you've tried neither but know which is works and which one doesn't (if either does at all)? Makes sense.

Relays did suck. Shadow fit is money and I endorse it.

Hinge is not Shadow Fit. The Hinge is similar to Shadow fit in what it does, but Shadow fit is completely different than the Hinge in what it does.

The Hinge gives just a bit so you can get just a hair more leverage over your tip providing a more skate like pop. Shadow fit also gives a more skate like pop, but also improves board feel and gives a completely new feel to a binding. Both do what they're supposed to do and do it well.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
