Question Need help to choose best bindings

Hey everybody,

I just bought a K2 raygun 150, which is awesome i'm having a lot of fun but i have 2005 bindings, and i can't do this anymore to my board and to my feet ...

So i want to change them, i'm interested in ride revolts seb toots pro model, i've tried them in shop they seems pretty cool, any advices ?

I'm an intermediate snowboarder, i like go in powder, hit the park/ some jibs, i'm looking for an all-mountain but one we can really play with.

Please help ?

Union SL's are my fav binding right now. All-mountain mid stiffness binding with a versatile highback with a lot of support and flex and comfortable and responsive straps.

Personally, if I were going to go Ride I'd stick with the Infinity chasis.

Hi,
First thanks for answering, union sl seems awesome too but a little bit expensive.
By the way, what do you mean that you would stick with the infinity chassis, does that mean too tiny ? Uncomfortable ? Too flexy ?

They're stronger, more adjustable, and more responsive. My brother was on the regular Revolts for 2 season's and now he's on the Capo. The level of quality in the Capo baseplate is significant.

If the capo is a little expensive I would check out the Rodeo. They still have the infinity chassis and I believe at the time i was looking were about 40 dollars cheaper then the capo putting them in the 220 range( don't' quote me on that). And since we are coming up on the end of the season you should be able to find them even cheaper then that if your patient.

I rode the Meastro for about a week and they seemed really sturdy but they didn't fit me right and thanks to Extremo I now own the Union SL's which kick ass!!

However check out the Rodeo, great all mountain freestyle bindings which work for groomers and excel in the park.

Not going to lie, my Firefly binders are the shit. You have to get the ones with toe strap, then you know your pro...

Have you to tried the Burton malavita? it's a great for park but also awesome all-mountain bindings. I've been using them for the past couple of years. check out the "re:flex" models.

Hi again ,

What i read about these bindings, malavitŕs seems pretty stiff, ride capo too, but are pretty nice ones, but îm not an expert and they are a bit expensive, seb toots were a great deal about price.
And What a bout the cartel reflex ? What´s the restricted model ?
Union sl ? So many ones i'm looking for something reliable that i can use 2/3 seasons, i go aproximately 2 months each winter you all gave me so many choices îm confused :s lol are seb toots really not cool ?

I insist on seb toots because same board color

The Revolts are a good binding. They're not superstiff but still pretty responsive as most Ride bindings are. My big hang up on the Revolt baseplate is they're 2 piece but still work like a unibody. It could limit stance options if you are on the edge of the size spectrum. But they do come with offset discs to add a little more stance adjustment. If you're into them and they're a good price go ahead and get them. Let us know what you think of them.
