Not to scare you off them or anything, but I broke the fucking bejesus out of some diodes this season. Four highbacks, an ankle strap, approximately 18 heelcup pads, and one baseplate over the course of about ~50 days of riding. So one major break every 8 riding days or so, and the heelcup pads (the little rubberized thing on the heelcup that keeps the highback from sliding around) just wouldn't stay on.

I'm a pretty serious rider, and I certainly took tons of huge hits on them, but they're still far more fragile than you would expect from a $Texas binding.

That said, they're absolutely amazing when they're in full working condition. They just don't handle stress very well.

My highback cracked first day and the heel pad things are already falling off.
They feel great but the quality is terrible.
