Quality binding, but probably too stiff if you are looking to do 30% ground tricks - same for all the ones that you have listed.
Also, surprised that Evo rates them as less stiff than the Charger - IMO the Hefe are about the same, if not stiffer.

Yeah El Hefe is one of the stiffer bindings on the market. If you're looking at Ride, you're better off with the Rodeo (or whatever they call it now).

i would say that the el hefe is the top of the ride binding line. it is very stiff and very freeride powder oriented,

I would say you should shut the fuck up if you do not have anything to add- he can go and read the brochure himself.

I wouldn't put El Hefe's on anything except a dedicated freeride machine. You are much better off with those Salomon Chiefs. Not to mention riding Salomon bindings with boots bumps your binding warranty up to two years on anything that isn't already lifetime. And the Chief is actually a really good binding.

I bought a set of 2014 El Hefe's.

I really don't know much about them aside from that they look awesome. on my 14 banana magic.

The construction seems top notch and the rachets are really smooth.

Both are probably way more than I need since I just started last march and haven't seen snow in 6 months.....

I'm gonna be the guy on the hill that people look at all my new gear and say to their buddies "That guy really needs to learn how to snowboard." haha

Any more comments? I'd be interested to here more about them (they're not in stock in my go-to shop, since they're "too expensive, but we've the Capo")
