Rome 390s outside of the park?

So I hear they are amazing in the park. How about everywhere else on the mountain?

I used 390 and it was too soft for me. Ride SPi and Flow NXT AT was better. I think that 390's is good park bindings, but is not mountain bindings.

I think they can hold up pretty well outside of the park.

yes you can take them outside. u will just have to work harder to make the board respond the way you want them to because they are soft.

I rode a set last season as all-mountain bindings, and loved them. I added a set of targas for this season, so I'll be switching off.

i've been riding the 390's outside of the park for 2 seasons now. going into my 3rd now. they are fine, but not as stiff as some other choices. if that's what you like, it's not going to hold you back.
