Default Which bindings (K2 vs Ride vs Rome)?

My riding is 90% freeride and I already got a new board (DC MLF) and boots (K2 Darko Access). I am thinking 3 possible options:

- K2 formula ($140)
- Rome 390 ($147)
- Ride Beta Movement ($94)

Which one would you pick?

rome, then k2, then ride.i dont really like rides stuff, but i kinda dont give it a chance now either after mt first incedent.anyway the 390s are super kushy and soft, and they are great all mountain bindings.no experiance with the formulas, but people seem to really like them so idk.its a toss up of those two to me.

p.s. targas on boardersmall for 149.99 shiped, and dogfunk for like 175.

if 90% freeride, then from that list get K2 Formulas. Their stiffness is more conducive to freeride (compared to 390s) while providing the same amount of dampening underfoot. But really there are better bindings out there if you're freeriding 90% of the time. The three you listed are more freestyle/all-moutain bindings.

Look into Arsenals or Targas.

For the amount of freeriding you do, get the Arsenals. However, if you plan on changing it up a little going forward, get the Targas. You can change the flex of the Targas to match that of the 390s and stiffen them up to almost match the Arsenals when necessary.

formulas > 390s

the only flex adjustment on targas is in the ankle strap

Autos are way too soft for 90% freeride. They're almost too soft for anything less than 90% jib.

You might be thinking of Auto Evers.
