Not sure if I'm just being sensitive with my Ride stuff or if I've been lucky with my Burton stuff in the past.

To me that rubber bottom of the binding seems defective, primarily because how the rubber is still sticking to the paint but the paint peeled cleanly off the base plate. It seems the paint wasn't applied properly.

I know its apples and oranges, however if you've ever had a cheap car paint job, you may know what I mean. The paint comes off in chunks, whether its from inferior paint, surface wasn't clean or it wasn't applied correctly.

Regardless, defective or not. I'll glue it back, if that's my only option.

Logic would seem to dictate then that binding mfgs would not use rubber to contact the board surface then....or at least the compounds of rubber with this problem.

I can now cross Ride off my list of bindings to try.

That's what i thought, and i actually went and checked mine to see... Haha

K2 Cinch CTX no rubber
K2 Autoever, no rubber
Flow 5's 2012/13 no rubber
Flow 5's 2011/12 no rubber

Strange that you would use a solid sheet of rubber in that format on a binding though, unless it is designed for cushioning... Which makes no sense, as you would want the cushioning between the boot and the binding surely... That is what i always thought anyway...
