burton c02 binding
having a bit of a drama with my new bindings,
Its looking like I should have researched a lil more on binding/boot/board combos.
I live in Aus, and im roughly 82 kilos, 6 foot 2. At the end of 2006 I went to Canada and brought a complete setup,
ride theory 2006 159
(PARK & PIPE
Designed for on-mountain freestyle Riding, the 159 features one of the stiffest flexes combined with a deep Quadratic sidecut to give the board drive.)
Salomon Dialogue 2006 boots
(The rear spine of the boot features a construction that offers more highback protection at the same time making the boot more responsive. The super-light LP sole gives riders more accuracy and board feel with incredible shock absorption)
and a friend had a second hand pair of Burton Mission bindings,
I rode the setup for the month I was in canada than probably 20 times here in Oz since.
The Burton Mission bindings had a couple buckles give way and I cracked the highback getting on a lift the other weekend.
Figured I might as well update my bindings so I tracked down some online stores here in oz,
Found an good price on a set of Burton C02 bindings.
Had them delivered and rode them today and well lets just say im not too stoked on them,
Ive only ever ridden the Burton Missions and a couple pairs of those old school clip in bindings.
Im wondering if the C02s are too stiff for my setup?
I saw something about needing to have the right amount or combo of flex in your setup,
example, soft boots, hard bindings, hard board,
or hard boots, soft board, hard bindings
If they are even the right kind of binding I should be looking for,
Does anyone recommend a binding for me? or should I just tough it out with the c02?
Ive spoken to the shop and I can send them in and get my money back or should I just spend some more time setting them up and getting used to the stiffer feel of the new bindings,
Do bindings loosen up after time?
