|pencap75||I used to be a loyal Flow user (nearly a decade) but recently switched to Ride for the canted footbeds. Canting makes a world of difference for me... no more foot pain and less leg fatigue. I use 2010 Contrbands for my freestyle board and 2010 NRCs for my freeride board. Love both bindings.|

Don't get SPi's if you spend any time in the park. Deltas will rip park and all mountain. I have 4 different sets of Ride bindings and the only ones that I have ever had ratchet issues on were a pair of LXs from way back. I think all of their straps are pretty comfy too. My only complaint is that they don't have any asym straps on their binders...
Rome stuff is legit too as King mentioned. If you are looking for aluminum baseplates, these are the two companies to look at.

I have SPi's. I love the sticky gel toestraps and the relatively simple constrction (a good simple).
My gripes are:
1. Sticky ratchets
2. The design of the screw attachment point for the footbed is idiotic. The screw is fixed in position on the removable footbed and to attach it the the baseplate you have to blindly find the threaded receiving nut, which is mobile. In other words, you can't see it and you can't feel it. You just have to get lucky and hope the pieces line up and the threads find purchase. It's frustrating and deters me from wanting to adjust or remove my bindings.*
*this is the primary reason why I replaced my SPi's with K2 Formulas

|ngbert||Currently riding the 2011 Delta MVMNTS. I like them a lot. Very responsive and good board feel underfoot. I use em on my park board. The aluminum baseplate drives a lot of pop. Highbacks if put all the way up make for a super loose feel. I had to adjust the forward lean a lil bit. My only complaint are the ankle straps. They don't center well and are not very comfy when compared to Union, Flux, or Burton. I simple replaced the ankle strap with a burton strap. Works fine, if not better.|

I have the SPis and I have the say, the response is money. The foot beds are great and the ankle strap is comfy.
My only complaint is the weight is a tad heavier due to the aluminum, but it doesn't seem to matter... I can get more pop out of the board with the SPis.
I was bitching about the ratchets not releasing when I first got them, but am now getting used to the way they work.
I agree with the others though - too stiff for the park.

I would say that Ride is generally regarded as one of the top 5 binding companies. Above-average reputation for:
I have the SPi's and like them very much, but I do all-mountain/freeriding, not park.

|DC5R||I wouldn't pick the SPi if you're looking for binders that you can take into the park. The SPi is one of Ride's stiffest bindings and IMO, not park-able. The Delta's would be a better choice for all-mountain riding with the ability to take it into the park.|
