havent heard too many reviews past great idea, but not worked out yet on the contrabands.
i am personally not a ride fan, and if i was getting any park binding out right now it would be the rome 390s hands down...

i have beta UL's and i love them.
they have nice lateral flex and no pressure points.
im also in love with the convertable toe-cap/strap. its like gelly

but ive heard mixed reviews about the contraband, usually its either "i love it, best binding ever" or "junk" never heard much in the middle.

id personally go for the betas just because the two straps gives u more options, and anyone who rode my setup (147 bataleon evil twin, XL Ride Beta UL) said it was amazing

id say u cant loose with any pair of ride bindings because i never had a bad experience (i also get comments from other riders saying "nice bindings" and whatnot)

+1 raiden zero, although beware of sizing - Large is more like the XL that most are used to

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

Zeros are definitely solid. But if you want a better toe strap for over the toe then the Betas. Betas are probably the only Rides I buy.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Contrabands need to be further developed a few years before you should consider buying them. Go with the Betas, or something else.
