haha, great to hear and looking forward to get loads of info from you
now since there will be reviews, shouldn't there also reviews have been done the last years...? Either they're kept secret or I'm to dumb to use google. e.g. for the Legacy I only find a review from thegoodride...

Have u tried shayboarder for additional review. I've already said to a Union bindings guy that the colours for next year are bloody lame. So im going to get this years milans instead

Zuzupopo is also really good for checking out other catalogs for next year from other manufacturers

Neni, you do a lot of splitboarding and that sort of thing. Don't be afraid to rock the "girly" colors. They pop in photos. I am a god damn skittle out there.

I would also say don't over crank your straps so much. I am guilty of this too. I am finding that getting them to snug these days is all you need. Especially with Union.

Haha... Good point. My dark in dark can be a bit hide and seek:


Was brave and already got brighter colors for next season

Love my Escapades. I have been rocking them for seasons. Nothing I have ever rode has lasted as long.

They are all mountain freestyle bindings, ya'll. This is RockyMTNsteeze riding. So I am going to rave about them, but the OP is lookin for the freeride type. They are softer and cushionyier than what this person is lookin for.

Are they not as stiff as the unions ? I thought the escapades were the stiffest womens burton binding ?

I'm all for the loud neon type colour, but too many places U either get the choice ir baby pink or blue !

The combination with white makes them ugly. Looks like a candy. Could live with uni colored ones.

Yea, had also very good experience with the quality of Escapades. Used them 4 seasons and they were still fine, straps only tiny little bite sings of all the cranking.

No specific reason than curiosity for my search. If I never get stiffer freeride bindings, I'll never know the difference. Maybe I'll get even more response out of the flagy (hard to imagine but still possible).

Any opinion on the Salomon Absolute Premium? on Salomon bindings in general?
