I snagged an aerobic for $150 last year from a closing shop. I'm now in the market for new bindings. Looking for "all mountain" bindings, I do a bit of park, a lot of ground tricks/butters, and occasionally some cruising. I've got a neversummer with ride NRC's for my charging stick.


I'm between union contact pros and cartels. Suggestions/ideas?

5'8" 150-155lbs I want to buy a bataleon whatever.

153 or 156? Your thoughts. I like cruising groomers, no bombing for me, and doing flat land stuff and jumps (180s), with the occasional box here and there. My everyday board is a gnu carbon credit (mostly due to lack of snow).

@I need a name - Contact Pros are awesome, can I throw in Malavitas($$$) and Cobrasharks($) as well the asym strap makes ground tricks feel great.

Hey whats up everyone, I'm looking into getting a disaster for a full out jib board and i was just wondering if i should get the 148 or 151? Im about 6 feet tall, 120 lbs, and my boot size is a mens 10. Im currently riding a 2012 Funkink 154 and it works perfect for an all mountain board, but im thinking of the disaster for spring time shredding and on days when i ride parks laps all day long.

Thank you

Default Old vs New tech

I have a Goliath 161W from 2009. How much has really changed since then as far as technology? I was looking at picking up another Goliath but I don't know how much has changed since then.

Thanks

The newer decks (reshaped this year) have less contact length in any given size. You would need to go longer to get the same contact length. What is your weight and foot size?

Please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).
