Relays did suck. Shadow fit is money and I endorse it.
Hinge is not Shadow Fit. The Hinge is similar to Shadow fit in what it does, but Shadow fit is completely different than the Hinge in what it does.
The Hinge gives just a bit so you can get just a hair more leverage over your tip providing a more skate like pop. Shadow fit also gives a more skate like pop, but also improves board feel and gives a completely new feel to a binding. Both do what they're supposed to do and do it well.

Would the hinge be bad for freeriding?
Is it mostly a freestyle type "feature"?

|Triple8Sol||How is this much different from the concept behind Salomon Relays that have been around forever? Burton's hinge is prob more similar to Salomon's redesigned Shadow Fit, so it doesn't seem very groundbreaking to me at all.|

Rode some '12 Malas with the hinge
As everyone else said ollies feel pretty nice. You can also move laterally when in your heel turns like you can in your toe side turns.

|ParkShredder||I rode Forum Republics that had it. Ollies become awesomer and presses felt more consistent to me.|
