Are you talking about the bands opposite side of the rachet? They are there to keep your straps away from ur boot when u put them on. It also allows you to adjust the boot size without taking out the tools. Initially I didn't know what to do with them as well cuz I thought if I force the tab to lock, it was going to snap and then bye-bye 390s. But I doesn't and it's a pretty good addition. I double check those between every run cuz the toe strap ones came loose when I was riding switch. But it might be my fault I didn't check it after 5 plus runs. Other than the possible rachet problem, these bindings are great

ev13wt Rubber band thingy?

Open the clamp. stretch the rubber band ladder thingy and hold the whole buckle that goes over your boot across the binding and the rubber band with one hand as if you where gonna strap in. The little ladder will lay over the nipple on the opened clamp. The nipple must poke through the holes (ladders) in the rubber band. Close the clamp and the rubber band srtetches a bit and then will be locked into place when the buckle is closed.

The youtube nipples song is playing in my head.

My clips dont have the problem others have been saying... so do you take that rubber band slide it under the clip then loop it back through the clip and hook a slot on the post on thr clip?

As for the stiffness it's all personal but I think they are a mid flex binding just like Rome says they are. I think you would be just fine. The biggest difference between these and customes is the aluminum heel cup. This will make the romes more responsive.

maybeitsjustme Definitely go with the 390s. IMO, they are not too soft, especially for freestyle riding. I weigh in around 200lbs and I have never felt these bending under my weight. I've also ridden them all over the mountain and never found them to be unresponsive.. I've actually got two pairs--one on my Agent, and another on my skate banana. I don't think you'll be dissapointed.

Phenom I appreciate the help guys. I'm gonna go with the 390s for sure.

On a side note, I am not sure if it is my bindings or if it's a typical occurrence but my rachet on one of my bindings won't lock down. Now the day that it happened it was super cold like 10F n someone told me that it might be the spring freezing, which is why it didn't lock. Is that usually the case? Or is there something wrong with the rachet? I rode two times after that day and it "seems" to not have that problem. I also crimped the top rivet on the rachet, which might have fixed it

IMO, no.
