Shaka Binding's - Hinged Base ?

Anyone try these out yet? They have a hinging base plate for the binding. Could be a good or bad thing ? Haven't seen anything posted here yet about them, what'cha think?

I'm still not quite sure what the point of that is.

i think it looks pretty gimmicky and like i would break those after a couple days of hard riding. though i havent seen them in person or heard anything else about them yet. just what i think from looking at it.

Just another proprietary piece to break that also hinders stance options, but it's still 4 screws and some plastic.

only Benefit I can see from it is flex. At 36 seconds into the vid, you can see how it kind of bend's/curves rather than make a flat spot where the binding is. I too Question durability, show's them landing off some pretty big shit, but that doesn't mean anything.

Those landings were mostly into pow from what I remember. Anyways the plates could still crack and you could still land the trick.

These would scare me, if you look at when they install it there isnt alot holding that baseplate in. one hard hit and Id be afraid of cracking the baseplate and riding with one foot on the board, and one foot with a binding attached it flying wildly as I eat shit...

You know if the hinge breaks, you still have 4 screws holding your bindings to your board.
