I'll be getting some in a few weeks. I'm pretty curious as to how different they feel than normal bindings.

Whats the general consensus from people who own these? They had tons of hype when they came out, but i never saw them in person or met a person who rode them.

I found a decent difference in response, but an even bigger difference in leg comfort. Felt like I could go for weeks with them on.

Heard great things too. Pulled the trigger on these last night as well.

Got the box home and there was only one binding. Looks like they sold me the display model! Emailed 'em, will have to go back on Saturday and get it sorted.

I demo'd last years ipos and found them to be the most uncomfortable binding I have put my boot into so far. Hopefully this years are better when I demo them.
