Lightweight Park Bindings
Hey everyone I just got a couple new used boards and want some solid bindings to pair with them. I picked up a stepchild powder sucks and a k2 WWW. I am mainly a park rider and even when I'm not since I ride in the midwest there are no challenging slopes that require a stiff flex binding. If anyone has suggestions as to what they would match up with these two boards let me know. As the title says I am looking for lightweight and park oriented. However, I am not looking for cheap bindings so please only suggest quality ones.

what have you rode, what did you like/not like. bindings are a lot of preference,
flux, union, ride... all light and freestylie, all very different

Union Atlas or Contact Pro if I were you.

To answer your question walove the slopes I ride are 45-60 seconds long. Basically hills. So I have been riding flows for years just to get more runs in. However for doing all the tricks and spins I need a more solid binding. I don't have much experience with traditional bindings which is why I am asking for advice.

I just got the k2 hurrithanes and love them so far.. Quite soft, and a ton of fun in the park..but still do some normal riding on them and handle it just fine..the soft high back is awesome and straps are great.. Andsomeof the best ratchets I've ever used.. I grew up Midwest and understand where your coming from, but hated flows when I tried them

i like rides so something like the capo or rodeo, union contacts have even more baseplate flex. the new flux's like the dmcc light look pretty nice. flux's have always been super comfy.

Def get something with a urethane back such as the Flux RK30 & K2 Hurrithane. Or better yet, get something that is designed to be ridden with no highback like Switchback.

My Malavitas are light as fuck.

My Union Flites are stupid light. They're pretty damn flexy too.

Switchbacks, Salomon Arcade or District, K2 Hurrithane, or Flux DS30.
