Hey, yeah I have had 2 sets of spi's and I am now onto a pair of deltas. I love ride bindings man they are so durable and I have never had anything break on them. The beta's I have not tried yet although I would love to get my hands on a set. But as for performance all the ride bindings I have had are nothing short of spectacular, I don't think you can go wrong with them.

Dude Cartels and 390s aren't even close to each other in performance. Cartels are nice and super stiff and responsive while the 390s have way more flex. I bought a set of cartels last year so I had a stiff Binding For the hike up Big Jay we did last year and OMG the difference between my 390s and the Cartels is like night and day.

As for Ride bindings I have had nothing but problems witht he two sets I have had.

ohh my bad. I thought the cartel was still a park oriented binding, didnt know it was that stiff. Well ill probably just end up going with the 390's then since they are like 30 dollars cheaper than the beta's. Not to mention Rome Board+Rome Bindings=a sick setup.
On a sidenote i really whish i found Skate Shoes, Skateboards, and Snowboards at Active Ride Shop before i bought my board at Tactics Board Shop: Snowboard / Skate / Surf / Clothing / Gear. It is literally 100 bucks cheaper their.

Your right the Cartels are still a favored park binding but I think they are more geared towards jumps/pipe or whatever vs gettign technical on jibberific features. All I'm saying is the Cartell is way stiffer then the 390.

Gotcha. Ill probably be going with the 390's then as ive heard they are pretty flexy but can still handle the mountain decently. Plus that underwrap heel hoop looks pretty snazzy.
thanks for the feedback.

Its a fucking strap and you're going to bitch about that? Bindings fucking break deal with it don't give me the well I was just riding along and it broke. JRA is the lamest excuse ever. Did it break to a point that it caused you to eject from the binding and impale yourself on a ski pole? No it didn't do anything like that.

Ride bindings in the MVMT series had issues this past season with the screws in the heel cups backing out because they were of sub par quality. If you do go with anything in the MVMT series replace those heel cup screws.

Also the Cartels flex entirely different than the 390's. You're comparing a Unibody binding to a non unibody binding, it just doesn't happen.
