Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on a new setup I'm thinking of. I'm 5'9" 175 with salomon f20 size 9. I currently am riding a 154 jibpan with ride betas. THinking of getting a RIDE MACHETE LE 158 WITH NRC BINDINGS. Any Thoughts?

I have the Machete LE 158 and the NRC bindings. I've only been out with the setup once thus far, but have been loving everything about it. The NRC is a great binding and includes the ability to customize everything from the stiffness of the ankle strap to the angles of the foot bed. I suppose it depends on what style of riding you plan on doing most, but I do like the NRC's for what it's worth.

did they change anything on the highback part for the NRC's from the yr before? or is it just the color, and adjustment on the footbed with the wedgie stuff?

I've been interested in the NRCs too...so i've compared last yrs model to this years. Seems like the only "performance" change is the custom flex ankle strap...other than that...everything seems to be the same. NRC doesnt have their wedgie footbeds...cause it has their custom balance footbed which allows you to custom the cant angles..this was on last yrs model too

Anyone know the reliability of the custom balance footbed? I've never seen it in person so i dont even know how it mechanically works. Is their risks of it not being able to hold the cant angles over time due to moving parts?

The canting works by having 4 threaded inserts in the baseplate, and 4 threaded studs in the footbed. You screw the footbed into the baseplate, and depending on how far, you can adjust the cant. Only thing I had a slight issue was, was with 1 of the screws/inserts seizing up either because of oxidation or slightly crossthread. Works fine still though
