I always wonder if any average riders here on the forum have tried these. Not just the connected guys.
If I saw a demo of these I'd try them.

i went down to the shop to check em out and they look like a soild binding construction-wise. only time will tell as to the buckles/straps.

the "kingpin" tech or whatever seemed less severe than i imagined. i'm not gonna label them gimmicky - because i haven't ridden them, and because there are actually respected riders among the "connected" that have vouched for them. just to me i thought the hinge was going to have more play in it so it seemed like you'd feel less of a difference from regular bindings...

i do like the idea of innovation and bringing new things to snowboarding. i can't say i'm crazy about the idea of the little rubber bumper thingies they have on each corner of the bottom of the baseplate... they seemed like they might be something you'd lose over time as things flex...

i would buy them over cartels or malvitas or fluxes or whatever just to try them if i needed new bindings..

I would love to take that leap of faith into these bad boys, but damn they are not nice to the wallet. With a price point like that I would feel more confident in a purchase with Burton or Union.

Triple8 - what stick are you pairing them with? I'm thinking of setting them up on a Proto for this season.

Planning to try it out on a few boards at least like my Gnu Rider's Choice C2+Pickle & NS Cobra. Not sure I'd slap them on anything stiffer like my Heritage though.
