The only reason I would think that they are not as stable as other bindings is because of the "kingpin" thing. Some people said that the straps weren't that good. Also its a little pricey, at $300usd.

Mpjames 09 Basinshopping is where I bought my UL too, those guys are great. I can't help but think the quality issues are due to its Tunisian factory. I'm sure it's super light construction leaves it open to delams. Perhaps the top coat can be thicker. The board is bad ass though. I heard from the USA distributor the Nidecker might start its Rolle, Switzerland factory to produce its high end boards. I think that's a great idea.

CrossStealth Yea it did and unfortunately it was only used lightly for 3 days while I was teaching a friend. I contacted Nidecker directly but it takes 72 hours to reply. I bought the deck from basinshopping.com which is in Vermont. I let them know the deal and they have a brand new one for me. Im still waiting on Nidecker though so I can make sure it wasn't some mass defect. Ill keep you updated

Mpjames 09 Your UL delaminated!! Put in a warranty claim ASAP!! That's unacceptable for a $800 board. Let me know how it goes. Do you have an email for your Nidecker distributor? They should replace it.

CrossStealth I ride a 2013 ultralight with now ipos and I have never felt as stable. I hit speeds faster than any other board and felt like I was locked in a track. It has a very powerful feeling to it. You feel as if you would plow through anything that is in your way. Also the instantaneous control is unmatched in my book. I was expecting a little drag but its the opposite. This setup is precision at its best. Only problem ive had is my board has delaminated. Hopefully this will be resolved soon and the next one will not hsve the same issues.

In all seriousness thou, compared to my friends and some people within arms reach maybe, but compared to brass on this forum...not even close.

Regardless...i've never read anywhere people think they're unstable. I have a good 2-25 days on them so far this season, and hit what I consider to be speeds near as fast as I can go with no stability issues.
