2014 NOW Drive bindings

Anyone tried the new 2014 models? I'm guessing the Now Drive is more freeride focused.

I think it depends on your boot shape. I wear size 7 malamutes, and the heelcup on the mediums puts some savage pressure on my heels. I can't imagine fitting a foot three sizes bigger in there with the same boot.

As always with bindings, you'll never know how well it fits until you strap in.

applor I also contacted NOW regarding swapping the ladders on the current IPO model. They replied straight away and we exchanged a couple of e-mails.

A+ service!

I have bought some white medium IPO's and NOW will swap the ladders over free of charge when I arrive in Whistler=D

Ten Has anyone actually contacted IPO via the website or fbook and had a reply? Ive sent several emails now to both and not a single reply. Confidence dwindling a bit...

I haven't bought boots yet either so I'm playing it safe and buying the 2013/14 season model that fits with the boots I end up buying.

Unfortunately it means I'll be paying a lot more but thats better than finding my new boots won't fit into the binding or are too loose.
Buy the medium size. The straps have tons of extra length and will easily take a size 10 wide boot.

I've got size 8.5 boots and have so much excess; I'm thinking of using a dremel to shorten the ladder and give it a finished look.

Sudden_Death Tried a few runs on my old Capita BSOD, and really since the power transfer runs mostly through the kingpin I didn't much notice the highback stiffness (and that is at over 215 lbs. with my gear on). That's the true genius of these bindings. They really are as soft or stiff as you'd ever need just by changing the bushings pads or removing the highback. I guess you could go with the higher and stiffer back on this year's but it looks more like putting out a solution to a percieved issue rather than an actual one. Plus it is a chance to expand the product line.

Nito Anybody try them on a stiff positive camber board; i.e. Burton Custom X? They work great on my NS Heritage but not sure of the soft highback on a stiff camber board.
