Burton bindings C60 2010
So I bite on the sierra dump burton sale a few days ago and Just got them today from fedex ppl. I was always amazed by how can you make something in snowboarding and sell it for high price. at 429 I can't find myself a good reason to buy it, however for 130 I decided to give'em a shot, just like I bite on the 220 dollars burton SLX boots, I think discount sale is really a good bait to fish me.
quitting the BS, I took them out from the box and start looking at them. To be honest, my first impression were pretty bad, does not gave me the impression of a 400 dollars bindings, the highback is kinda loose, can swing them left and right, i thought these should be really stiff... Didn't see how CARBONyzed is the high back either, in my opinion it's just plastic all over. the straps has very cheap "cushioning". Haven't seen anything impressive at all yet. When you buy some of the most expensive bindings of the market, you are expecting the material to impress u, at least.
Since I haven't ride it yet, So I can't comment on how they perform. Will take them out this weekend and see what's going on. After all, it's the performance that determine the products way more than what it was built by. I am really looking forward to see how the "BESTs" of burton perform... (SLX+C60)
I hope y'all burton lovers don't bash at me, it's just my impression on the materials of c60 yet, maybe i'll drop the biases by being impressed about the response and comfortability.
