Tried a few runs on my old Capita BSOD, and really since the power transfer runs mostly through the kingpin I didn't much notice the highback stiffness (and that is at over 215 lbs. with my gear on). That's the true genius of these bindings. They really are as soft or stiff as you'd ever need just by changing the bushings pads or removing the highback. I guess you could go with the higher and stiffer back on this year's but it looks more like putting out a solution to a percieved issue rather than an actual one. Plus it is a chance to expand the product line.

I've been looking to buy these bindings for some time.

I was going to buy a pair on sale (found some for $175!) and then get the ladders replaced when I'm in Whistler (I live in Aus) but unfortunately my boot size is smack bang in between the medium and large binding size (size 10).
I haven't bought boots yet either so I'm playing it safe and buying the 2013/14 season model that fits with the boots I end up buying.

Unfortunately it means I'll be paying a lot more but thats better than finding my new boots won't fit into the binding or are too loose.

Buy the medium size. The straps have tons of extra length and will easily take a size 10 wide boot.

I've got size 8.5 boots and have so much excess; I'm thinking of using a dremel to shorten the ladder and give it a finished look.

Thanks for your response, I really appreciate it!

If you're certain mediums will be fine then I will get a pair now on discount.
I have read other people say that their size 10's are really tight with mediums and they wished they'd bought larges though.

I also contacted NOW regarding swapping the ladders on the current IPO model. They replied straight away and we exchanged a couple of e-mails.

A+ service!

I have bought some white medium IPO's and NOW will swap the ladders over free of charge when I arrive in Whistler=D

I think it depends on your boot shape. I wear size 7 malamutes, and the heelcup on the mediums puts some savage pressure on my heels. I can't imagine fitting a foot three sizes bigger in there with the same boot.

As always with bindings, you'll never know how well it fits until you strap in.

2014 NOW Drive bindings

Anyone tried the new 2014 models? I'm guessing the Now Drive is more freeride focused.
