For me it's been pretty good. One of my toe straps started to come apart at the seam, but I contacted Nitro right away and they sent me two new pairs of straps right away. I haven't had to switch them out yet, I'm just keeping them as spares. Other than that they've held up great. Just a little bit of paint chipping on one of the highbacks but i'm pretty sure most bindings get like that after a while. Also, Raiden has a two year warranty on their bindings where it seems like a lot of other companies only have a one year warranty. So that's a really big plus for me.

Rookie09 I agree. I had Ride Delta bindings with the wedgie footbed (2.5 cant I think) and didn't notice much at all with them. With my Raiden Zero bindings, my feet feel more comfortable/natural in their position and the airbags do a pretty good job at cushioning big jumps and when you hit the lip on medium sized jumps.

Qball Canting hurts the inside of my knees after long days and I don't like how it feels when pressing. Definitely like my Raidens Phantoms better than any binding i've been on.

sb60 I think factory canting isn't right for everyone. I ride with no pain and when I got canted bindings my back leg hurt. I finally switched the binding footbed for a flat one from some old bindings. I have really go fitting boots with custom footbeds.

Triple8Sol I think overall cushioning will be better than canting. For example I have 2 pairs of K2 Formulas that have canting, but mostly plastic baseplate. On the other hand my NOW IPO's don't have any canting whatsoever, but the great minimal baseplate and cushioned footbed works great. My knees like the IPO over the Formulas.

I'm between raiden phantoms and ride capos. Which would be better for a blacklist? And more important my knees?
Phantoms. The metal frames of the Capo ride harsher.

sxdaca Thanks for the replies.
Seems that canting is the way to go.

Hey nivek I know boots is something very personal to look at but do you have any recommendation?
