Default Binding effect on board flex.

I just would like to know if putting stiffer bindings on a board will make it easier to flex.

I have a burton mololo which I love taking in the trees. As maneuverable as it is, Id still like to be able to flex it more to make even tighter turns so I can ride at higher speeds. So I was thinking about getting some stiffer bindings (rome arsenals).

I have ridden heaps of different setups over the years but I have never actually swapped bindings over on a board that had a totally different level of stiffness.

love to hear from anyone who's tried different flex bindings on the same board

thanks in advance

short answer: yes, a stiffer binding will result in less movement "wasted"

for tight turns, higher speed = more Gs = more flex
technique and edge hold will come into play here
