Just rode these today in Whistler. Got 8cm new snow. These bindings are amazing. Response is instant, no heel lift because the heel cup sucks the boot so well, and damp. I have no problem with the toe cap, stayed put the whole day (slipped one time because I didn't tighten it enough).

I was up at Baker for the LBS this past weekend. NOW had a booth so I met JF and chatted with him about next year's lineup. They had them on display so I was able to get a hands-on look at them. I like what they're doing, already making adjustments/upgrades in addition to new models. All 4 of my ladder straps were chewed up so they were kind enough to replace all of them for me with next year's version, no questions asked. JF also hooked it up with a set of the mini-back things so I can try riding them without the highback. These will come standard on the Select model next season. Super cool dude, and really excited to see NOW growing/expanding!

Now everyone is going to email them and ask for new ladders

These things charge! They really work how they're advertised and I've definitely felt an improvement in my riding since i got them.

Honestly I don't feel like they'd have a problem with doing that when necessary. It's been a well known issue for them for some time now. When I started explaining the issue, JF pretty much cut me off and started digging in the bin for some parts. NOW seems like the type of company that appreciate customers that gambled and invested a good chunk of change to give their new product a try, and are going to back it up with proper support.

If a hardware companies first year problems are just bad ladder straps then they should count themselves lucky and gladly give everyone new ones. If Now wants to stay in business for a while they have to take their lumps like every other company. Right now they seem to be doing great and it would suck for their rep to get ruined over $3 worth of parts.

I noticed last night my ladders were getting chewed up so I sent them an email and they already shipped new ones out this morning. They said they're still in the process of manufacturing new ladders with improved materials and they expect them to be available no later than the middle of March and asked me to email them at that time so they could send me the updated ones.

Good bindings, good customer service
