K2 Automatics

Has anybody put a season in with these guys?

Everything I've read says they work, etc. But I'm curious how they stand up against a season of riding.

Lemme know what you guys think, pros, cons, etc.

Really curious if they're squishy and built for park, or stiff and made for more all mountain riding. That is one thing that I havn't really been able to figure out from what I've researched. Seems they're geared more towards all mountain from the looks of things.

It's a solid binding at most you get some slight wear and tear on the toe strap. It's built to be an all mountain binding, but has the harshmellow dampening in them. If you're looking for something that's more freeride go with the Auto Evers.

I have about 25 days on my auto evers, i love them, the stiffness is between rome 390s and rome targas, more freeride orientated though.

very lightweight bindings and the harshmellow tech does a good job at dampening vibration/chatter

i wouldn't trust those things as far as i can throw them. as it stands, k2 is the only snowboard manufacturer who has ever had an ENTIRE line of bindings recalled due to safety issue. why bother with these over complicated, dangerous, heavy stupid pieces of junk? is doing up your toe straps THAT hard?

Yeah you're an idiot. I have K2 Auto's and love them. Not as light as the Union Contacts, but still super light and the ankle straps have gel in them to make them super comfy.

two seasons so far on mine. still going strong. so comfy. so easy. underrated feature that hardly gets mentioned is that the ankle strap is hinged so it stays out of the way when it is time to step onto the baseplate when strapping in. i wont buy a burton deck because i cant use my autos...
