Lightest binding?

I have searched the internet and on here and either my searching skills are lacking or the answer isn't out there yet. I am wondering what the lightest binding in the 2010 line up is?

I would assume Ride with their aluminum footbed would be on the heavier side. Seems like the alpha mvmnt would be the lightest in their line. I was thinking maybe k2 auto ever or Union contact?

I have a k2 zero and seeing how its such a light board I would like light bindings rather than the heavy NRCs I currently have on it.

Thanks in advance.

The Ride Contraband is the lightest binder I have seen. Don't know hard weight but by the hand scale they were super light!

For a k2 zero you wouldnt want contacts. They are light, but theyre more of a jib/park binding than anything else. Maybe union force/force mc or data

i think the union force mc. they say its the lightext binding theyve ever made.

the ride contraband is probably lighter but you cnat really use those for more than rails.

I held the Force MC before and they felt noticeable lighter than other bindings in the shop i was browsing at that time (has Auto Ever, Force, Rome 390). But the difference is quite minimal between bindings nowadays. Even the Rome Targa is only quarter pound heavier than a Ride Contraband.

Yeah the more I thought about this question the more I realized that that was probably the case. I dug out my bindings to my boards and there really isn't that much weight difference.
