i picked up the rome 390s for my skate banana and they look good, got great flex in the highbacks, a lot of customization, and they are light on weight... another great addition is the super comfy ankle strap... ive ridden a lot of other bindings and these feel like buttttterrrrr....

so you guys would recomend the 390s over the Cartels?

cuz i can get the cartels for about $130.. do you think the 390's are worth the extra 80 bucks?

I've not tried the 390s but I have the 1st gen Cartels and I'm quite pleased with the quality, comfort and reliability. I've owned and ridden many bindings and honestly I think the boot matters a heck of a lot more in terms of comfort, but make sure the binding fits the boot. Most will fit fine, but it's worth checking.

Id personally take the cartels over the 390's. I had 390's for that past 2 seasons and haven't been very happy with them. After a few weeks the ratchets started to not work when trying to unbuckle the straps. Compared to the cartels, the 390's are heavier, have less padding, and don't conform to your boots as well.

Are either bindings good for just all out freeriding (no park/freestyle at all)?
Or are they not stiff enough?

I've had both and DEFINITELY the 390's. My Cartels broke several times and had to send them in for warranty twice.
