Default another binding thread

ok, i think i want to get new bindings

right now i have a pair of very old liquid bindings that are pretty much all plastic, and now when i strap my board on, i can move my legs and make them flex which i assume isnt a good thing

im pretty much a total noob as i havent been riding in like three years, but i want a good all-around binding.....imagine 7 parts freeride/3 parts park as i like to do little stuff

right now im rockin a salomon driver 155 which is mostly black and blue so id like to keep that color-scheme in mind

im buying new boots but i only wear a size ten so size shouldnt be an issue

i know i should try a bunch out but i dont live anywhere near close enough to any resort for that to be an option

and im on a budget, not looking to spend more than like $140 or $150

all reccomendations welcome




wow, that was a long-ass thread

You can't lose with Ride SPI's. I've been riding mine atleast 100 days a season for 3 seasons now and haven't had any failures or problems with them whatsoever, and the freeride/park ratio is probably right about where you want it. I'd check out other Ride bindings as well if this is more money than you want to spend.

My friend liked the LX's, he rode them for a couple years. I think they are basically the same platform without all the bells and whistles as far as I could tell. My friend said he only upgraded to Flight Tomcats because of the cushier base and shaped ankle straps, but I believe they might all have shaped ankle straps now. I've also heard that Rome bindings are just plain sick.

check out the Rome 390's or Ride RX's if you can't spring up for the SPi's. They're nearly identical except the SPi's are bit lighter and have a slightly stiffer highback. Similar to the Rome 390 vs. Targa
