Did that? Good.

Now, that settled, yes I am a woman. Yes, I rode Trilogies. No, I do not give any recommendations on the gear I have not personally demoed or ridden.
Cool, good to know

I see... been a while since I had the Lexa.
Would like to try stiffer ones even if I actually like the Fame. Maybe I wouldn't feel the urge to fasten them till the ratchets squeak haven't ridden many bindings (Lexa, Escapade, Fame - that's it).

Why not look into men's bindings? You don't want soft, and you don't want pink, and those are pretty much the two defining characteristics of women's bindings.

Size can sometimes be a bit of a challenge, but I ride size 7 men's boots (about the same as your 8 women's) and plenty of brands fit just fine. Burton men's smalls, now IPO's medium and Rome's S/M have all worked pretty well for me in terms of sizing.

Because women's calves are positioned lower than men's. Women's bindings are designed with that in mind, so the highback doesn't cut into calf.

Plenty of low highback mens options as well. Now IPO and pretty much every flux binding ever come to mind.

This and imo the MOST important reason to purchase female specific gear is so we have MORE options in the future. Supply/Demand.

neni: I've not ridden the Trilogy or Legacy but have the 10/11 Milan and 12/13 Rosa. Straps and buckles/ratchets have been solid.

I really like the escapades. They go really well with my stiffer Never Summer Lotus

Good to know. Never had an issue with Ride or Burton straps but hubby has K2 bindings for the first time and chewed up two sets of straps this season.

Found the Trilogy (in black! ) on sale in my size... or would it be worth to wait for the '14 redesigned ones? Have you seen the colors the '14 Trilogy and Legacy will come in?



And why on earth are there so few reviews on women's gear?

I think it may just be different colours for next season. What's more annoying is the lack of some womens stuff in the UK for me.
