I havent watched much bordercross but as i can remember i dont believe there is much movement, just fast riding.

When i say the hooks are geared more towards park, its because when riding park there is alot of movement both forward and backwards when performing tricks. The dub hook wraps around both sides of the leg and supports the rider when he/she is leaning into a trick. It locks the legs in and allows for a faster response because it eliminates the forward movement the leg has if they were not used.

Fair enough, but I thought the point of having softer bindings in the park was so you could "bone" tricks out more, and generally have more freedom of movement. Maybe somewhere on my way to becoming a grandpa I lost my senses?!?

I should really stop posting here because bumping this thread from 2009 is not good, on the other hand it is kinda funny.
