Default Women's bindings

Did use the search function, but didn't find matching answers.

I have '12 Ride Fame bindings and liked them for the comfort, response, canted foot bed and easily adjustable highback. Bought a second board, fixed the old Fame on it and wanted to get another pair online since the shops don't have bindings during off season and was a bit surprised to read, that the Fame are rated as freesyle bindings... well then... I've ridden my Flagship with freestyle bindings and it felt good Anyway, the '12 are sold out, and the '13 are only available in pink. I'm not fussy with colors... but pink?

-> What other bindings could you recommend?
Looking for rather stiff freeride bindings to match the Flagship 158.
Womens bootsize 8, my K2 Contour boots are rather bulky.
Purpose: pow, some carving or just charging groomers.

Edit: preferably with canted footbed; would also give men's bindings a try

Union Trilogies or Legacies.

The Trilogy was completely redesigned for next year, and is the women's version of the Force. The Legacy is the women's version of the Atlas.

BTW: they need to have good straps/ratchets. I tighten the straps as hard as possible.

Will they have canted footbed? I got the impression, that it helped reducing pressure on innerside of the hind foot.

No, they do not. The only Union binding model to have canted footbeds is the Factory that comes out next year.

Union Trilogy, although they're on the stiffer side.

Had the Lexa before the Escapade. They were too soft.
Why "although"? I'm looking for stiff bindings

Fames are about the same stiffness as Lexa. If you like Fames you shouldn't even notice the difference with Lexa. Unions are stiffer though.

I hope you're a girl, otherwise you're just pulling information out of your ass since you've never personally ridden them.

You're making "Unions" in general seem like they're stiff as fuck, when both the Trilogies and Legacies both have varying degrees of rigidity.

Reading comprehension problems, darling??? Go back to my post and read again what I wrote.

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.
