Welcome to Ride Snowboards.
I've pretty much been a Burton guy before this season. Never had any durability issues.
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.
