2014 K2 Company IPO?

Anyone have experience with this or any previous year model?

They look awesome with all the tech; canting, harshmellow dampening, asym ankle strap, etc.

Does anyone have any experience with K2's urethane highback?

Im thinking about pairing these with the 2013 NS Evo i just picked up but I have no experience with urethane.
Im coming from a pair of 08 cartels that i got used as a first pair of bindings. Any advice on whether or not these would fit my board well?

Thanks

I bought the K2 Company's at the end of last season and got to ride them one day on my old K2 Union. It was a world of difference from my ride LX's... So comfortable and responsive! I mounted them on my new SL and they worked great in the living room while I was popping 180's on the carpet.

Riding this season...

hmm thats interesting because as far as k2 flex ratings go the 2014 IPO's are actually softer than the regular company. I wonder if the IPO's are just more of a park oriented version of the Company's then

Think more all mountain freestyle tweakability. It's likely what I'll be riding this year.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

right thats what i meant, more on the freestyle side of all mountain. My apologies if it came out differently.

I may end up going with them as well in order to get more of an all around feel on an already park oriented board.. well thats my idea of how it would work out anyhow.
