Raiden Phantoms cracked
 
Had a nice spill on friday and just was adjusting my bindings to discover that i cracked the base plate through. Only my second day on them.

Should i call the shop i ordered them from or should i contact raiden?

Bad luck dude. I'd call the shop first off.

They should replace them if the base is cracked. Not sure how there warranty department is though. FYI I will never buy anything anymore from Ride because of that

thx for the info, the store just got back to me and told me to send them back to the store and they will start the claims process.

Don't know if it's too late now, but get your money back and buy another pair from a more durable brand such as Burton or Union.
Personally, I would not use binding that have airbags for baseplate dampeners in the first place, because airbages usually "bust out" and if they don't, they're still likely to do so. I know that's not your problem, but I'm just saying that it's more potential for breakage if you do get another pair of Raiden bindings.
(I quoted "bust out" because Raiden actually stated, in a Transworld Gear Guide I think, that the more common EVA padding busts out and air bags don't do that. Seriously? How stupid do they think we are?):laugh:

I doubt that it will be an option. Thanks though.

I was thinking of trying union but with all that has been happening on here lately i think i will probably avoid them.

I only got 2 days on the phantoms so far but i liked the airbags. The wipe i had was pretty awesome and i had a hard time walking for a couple days, i think i sprained my knee pretty bad LOL, oh well, another few days and i will be healed up.

I think the 2013 phantoms are BA's go to binding on a lot of his tests last year. Not sure if durability is a real issue.

more durable brand... ehh...

i think were seeing one of those perfect situation accidents. ive delt with nitro fro a while now... and air bag "bust outs" or base plate cracks. ive never seen.

You handled things right... The shop should have your back and push the issue right through... nitro is a pretty rad group of dudes.

Pretty sure if it was common for airbags to blow out I would have done it by now. Oh the humor in that guys post.
