so i've narrowed it down..

hey guys. cooldoc again,

so ive narrowed my decision down to two bindings.. flux ds30 as well as sf45
now im leaning more toward the ds30 but i was wondering what kind of experience you guys have had with them as well as any suggestions/advice for me you have

im typically an all mountain rider, i spend only about 20% of my time in the park but i love to do small tricks on natural features, i need a strong binding for when i go hard down a mountain.. to be honest, im not really sure if im looking for softer/stiffer yet, im trying to figure it out. im just looking for what kind of feedback you guys have for me that would help me make my decision.

p.s. as far as the ds30.. is the SDR version any different from the rest of the colorways? the highback looks different so thats what got me wondering.

thanks in advance!

DS30 are too soft for all mountain. These bindings are pretty soft. I ride Restricted Cartels and the DS30s are significantly softer. You'll be better suited with a stiffer binding if you charge hard.
The SDR version's highback is made from the same material just a slightly different shape.

Agreed, I even think the TT's are too soft for all-mountain. If you're stuck on flux, I'd go with the SF45's.

The shape of the DS30 SDR model is going to make it a little more responsive than the milled out shape of the colored ones. Sounds to me like you would really enjoy a responsive binding... Try the SF's! They are my favorite
