Binding questions
 
Im a freerider and looking to get different bindings. I was looking at the
 Flow NX2-RS snowboard binding
 Burton diode Re:Flex snowboard binding
 Burton genesis Re:Flex snowboard binding

Are these good choices for freeriding? Also can you list some others that may be good. Thanks

The diodes are the best out of those listed above. Another great choice is the 2013 Malavitas. They're known to be park oriented, but this year they're stiffer and although still great for the park, they're also great for free riding. Hope his helps!

Out of those 3, Diode's, for a little cheaper, a lot of free rider's and racer's use Cartels. Actually a lot of everybody uses Cartels.
Others...T-rice is now using the UNION MC's (so its gonna be a good one) and the Union Charger's are another great choice, Ride El Heffe, Rome Targa... anyting that's stiff, light and expensive :D is usually what works good for freeriding

I got my diodes for 300 at some random ass site called jiffybutler.com. Just a helpful little tip. The cartels are great, but I don't personally like them because EVERYBODY has them. They're the average Burton binding. Maybe a little above average.

Well their are some sick pro's who rock Cartel's, from freestyle chargers to backcountry nutz and even 6 time x games gold medalist nate Holland.
I went to that jiffybutler site, it doesn't even work. That's a BS discount anyway

No, especially not for freeriding

I have diodes and if you want a really light, stiff binding, they are exactly that. But you have to really want a stiff binding.

The diodes are amazing. Very light, responsive and comfortable. The only drawback is the carbon higbacks tend to crack midway down the highback. I've had 3 pairs of diodes and each of them have the same crack. Burton is quick to mail replacements but this can be annoying if you don't keep a spair around.
