Default Canted Freestyle Bindings

Hello,

I'm finally lookings for bindings to pair with my Arbor Blacklist. Since my knees and menisci are quite bad I wanted to try canted bindings.

I've looked into K2 IPO's, Now IPO's, Nitro Phantoms, Union Factory and Malavitas. Everyone is telling me how great Now's are, but I haven't had the chance to ride them yet. I've been on a friends TT30 last season, that I liked a lot but lacked the canting. I heard Flux will have some kind of canting for 2014, is that right?

Thanks in advance.

Nitro Phantoms. Canting and airbags...pretty tough to beat

Anyting from Flux with the new Ultima base has canting similar to what Burton does. It's a softer foam on the inside to allow for canting on impact but not at all times like a full angled cant does.

The Flux DS is what you want from them. Other than those I'd personally shoot for the K2 IPO's. One of my favorite bindings.

Rode Burton Cartels and Diodes the first half of last year and was very happy with both on their respective boards.
Then I found a set of NOW IPOs on sale.
With all the hype, I had to try them.

I am now selling the 2011 Cartels and Diodes cheap if you want to consider either.
The NOWs are the real deal IMO.

Thanks for the response. I think I'll shoot for the Nows or K2s since I can get them for a discount.
