Default Womens Bindings Burton vs. Rome vs. Ride

I started riding park last season and spend most of my time on rails and boxs however I also like riding all over the mountain. I am trying to decide which bindings to pair with my Gnu B-street. The choices are Rome - Strut or Shift (I'm not sure which of the 2 i like more), Ride DVA, and also Burton Escapade which I had last year and loved with a DC BFF however I'm not sure how they would go with this board.

Strut Rome Strut Snowboard Binding | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2010
Shift Rome W's Shift Snowboard Binding | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2010
DVA DVa | ATV | Bindings | Ride Snowboards
Escapade Women's Escapade Snowboard Bindings | Burton Snowboards

Thank you

The strut is a way better binding than the shift, which I wouldn't even consider. It is Rome's failed attempt at a pricepoint binding. I would also look at the Ride Sigma's over the DVAs.

After doing some research, I got some Ride Sigmas for my girl's setup last year, and she really loves them.

Thank you guys. So it looks like now its between the Rome Madison and the Ride Sigma and I also had the Escapades last season and really loved them. I'm just not sure what to pair with my board. The gnu is super flexible and has banana tech. I spend most of my time in tha park but also want to be able to just cruise around with out any trouble. I'm not worried much about the quality btw the 3 different brands because I am confident that they are all good (I've rode with both Escapades and older DVAs) My question is more which would compliment my board better. Should I be going for a more flexible binding or a stiffer one?

If you're spending most of your time in the park, you'll prob be happier with a binding on the softer end of the spectrum.

any park binding regardless of flex is okay for cruising. A stiff binding isn't all that useful on a soft park board anyways, if you want to charge hard, then you probably need a new board. Don't think you can go wrong with either the romes or Rides. I have owned the men's version of both bindings and love them. If they are comparable, then the madison will be a bit softer than the sigma, since the 390 is a bit softer than the Delta/Beta.

Does anyone have any advice about the Burton escapades? I rode them last year with the DC BFF and loved them. It was when i was first starting to do rails and boxs. According to the websites they should have the same flex as the Rome Madison. Ride doesnt say anything about flex.

If you rode the Escapades last year and loved them, I don't see what's going to stop you from loving them this year. I've tried a lot of bindings and always ride Burtons as my primary binding. I ride Burton boots because they fit my heel best, so that might be why their bindings tend to out preform others for me. But I'd say stick to what you know if it's serving you well. Ride does make nice bindings, I dunno about the rest. Most companies that make boots and bindings just make smaller sizes for women without making real adjustments to width, footprint or footbeds. I know Burton does make their boots and bindings smaller for women. This might impact your fit if you have womens boots. Not all women's stuff fits with other brands as nicely as you'd like. Maybe check out some shops with the stuff you want to try out and bring a boot.
