I've checked these out a few times at Peter Glenn. I have a few questions.

Is the white part of the foot bed softer for canting purposes?
How would you compare the high back flex to the high back on the Force?
I noticed the teeth on the mini disc are rounded, is that for board flex?
Did they modify the toe strap to disengage easier?

I have the Force bindings but am thinking about going Contact Pro.

Just by a couple grams. Overall, it's slightly more weight though. Very light bindings.

1. Yes
2. It's a bit softer than the Force highback. It's flatter on the inside, which makes it ride different as well. More "free", where the Force HB gives a more locked in feel.
3. Rounded (curved) teeth give it more contact between the two pieces. There are less teeth around the disk, so we rounded them for extra security.
4. All ratchets have been updated across the collection.

Cheers and sorry for the late reply.

Yes. I happened to have both in my hands today. The differences are noticeable for sure. I did not ride them though, I'll ride the new ones in a week or so. Super light too.

Yes, it's a lot different. There's just so much more dampening than the previous model. The other big thing is the regular contact focus' the dampening and trueflex mostly in the heel section, where the new Cpro is more of a 360 full base concept.

If you like the regular Contact, you'll LOVE the Contact Pro.
