Binary,

What angles are you using? I noticed you are duck with a steep front angle for freeride. I've got an old freeride board with Ride CAD and looking for a more comfortable stance. Maybe, I'll put the IPO on both my Heritage and the old freeride board.

I actually just threw those on for the picture but after riding it for 5 days I ended up at +15 -9


Also put your IPO on your your freeridee boards. you'll be amazed.

Anybody else noticing some quality issues with theirs? On the hill yesterday, I noticed one of the ankle straps is already starting to fray and the logo popped off the footbed. Minor things, but I've also only spent 4 days on them on 2 boards.

I have two pairs of NOW IPO bindings. I'm quite happy with them. Like Triple8Sol, I've had the logo pop off the footbed. Not a big deal. Just a bad place for a logo that is glued on. The straps are still in good shape and I've to six days on the hills (Five on one set and one on the other).

I've also read some skepticism about the straps especially the toe straps. I'm quite happy with the toe straps. They fit snugly and have never come loose, but I could see from looking at them people questioning them. I much prefer the ractchets and ladders to those on my Union SL binding from last year.

The biggest thing about the straps is to play with the adjustment side.

It took a while to get them to fit my SLX just right but once I did it all the pressure points went away.

I was intrigued when the IPO first came out. The more I looked at it the more I didn't like them. I don't like the binding straps, they look cheap. I didn't want to take a chance so I ordered Amplid Balance 2.0 bindings. These are sick bindings that should mate well to my Ultralight, if it ever arrives. I like the Amplids too because they're kind of rare and below the radar of many riders outside of Europe. Good luck .

I'm on week long trip to banff right now and have been making first lines in thick pow every day with them. I live these bindings, BUT the latches on the straps themselves are stripping. Ill be doin a warranty claim as soon as I'm back.

Yup, just started noticing that on all 4 ladder straps. Oh and both ankle straps are now splitting apart a bit at the top. This is after only 6 days on them this far.

hmm, i've been riding mine everyday and they still look brand. best straps i've had. nothing has ever slipped.

do you have the ends runinng through the strap slots? if they're sticking up they might catch and pull the latch open.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah
