Those look pretty tight. Did you check out the districts? Curious why You went that direction. How are they on dampening?

They are awesome for being damp and the gel in the strap is oh so nice. I like a stiffer binding when I hit the park that is why I went this way so when I want to hit the bigger kickers I feel the response I want. Also with the new relay 2.0 it really allows you to get that tweak and flex side to side for a rail ride. Both bindings are great I just never like the super soft bindings.

There's no cant in these bindings but they're the real deal. They work well in the park and they handle higher speeds on groomers just fine. I can't imagine that they would perform any worse in the deep stuff, but haven't had that opportunity yet this season seems as it was 55 today. Super versatile binding you can ride it anywhere on the mountain. Comfy straps. Good board feel due to the minimized baseplate, better flex & response.

Didn't know the district are that soft. Really apprec your input readimag sounds like we ride a little similar. These are going on my Smokin BigWig 157 with Burton Grail boots. Big bear/MHkickers, boxes, rails , etc....Mammoth or Big /pow bombing I got the NS F-1 Premier 161 with C-60 Burton binding.

Can you swap out the toe and ankle straps? The other thing that's concerning is read quite a bit that the overall quality needs improvement.

there is a known issue with some of their straps I think they have been addressing via warranty. Typical first year production issues I guess. Iv e been meaning to order a replacement pair just in case but so far I dint see any signs of quality issues in mine. Heard of any other issues with them?

As far as swapping is concerned do you mean like using dIfferent brand's straps?

Just what I've read on line logo falling off. Teeth of the straps wearing down fast. Ratchets being meh. As far as swapping I still have the straps from the Cartel which are cushy and the ratchets stil work. Just curious if they looks pretty simple to swap out.

Maybe too soft, read angry's review after I saw this and it meets the criteria but I'm right at 200 lbs.

What broke? And how? B bindings are fairly durable
