How stiff do you like your highback, or do you care?

I would HIGHLY recommend, if you can, trying out some bindings with canting. I had a boner for canting initially, and when I tried it, it felt Reeeeeally fucking weird. I have malavitas,with auto cant, and while I love them, I have to bang my stance out hella wide to feel comfy on them.


Oh, for what it's worth. I rode some 2010 malavitas which are kiiiiinda like the cobra shark but not on a disc and liked them. Good value on the sharks too.

I havent' ridden the K2s, but someone can comment on that.

More questions, what kind of park riding do you do?

What about the Forces feel didn't you like? If you're looking for something a little softer, have you looked at Flux?

Nah, burton is fullbed on the cobras. Srsly, I'd recommend, if it's possible, to try canting first to see if you like it. You may hate it.

Check for some used malavita reflexes if you want canting...great binding too.

And, if you liked the forces but though they were too stiff, try the contact pro. Great park binding that you can ride the mountain with. If you hate unions now, like a lot of people on here, forget I said that.
