Nivek From Flux if you're looking to keep the price down the TT's are the way to go. If you can spend the DMCC Lights are a super killer binding.

Others that would match well are the K2 Formula, Salomon Arcade, Rome Mob Boss, or Raiden Pushers or Zeros.

I'm not a Flux fan. I find the hollow design of the ankle strap to be too flimsy and on softer boards they have a large deadspot. Plus the unibody baseplate limits stance options.

A lot of guys like them on this forum though and they're pretty high quality bindings. I'm just not the guy to ask when it comes to flux.

+1 for this.

Bad-fitting boots can ruin your day reaaaallly fast. Get a good pair, and they'll make a world of difference.

Extremo Skip the RK's. The hollow Flux ankle strap makes it feel sloppy enough as is. With the urethane highback you may as well be riding a no back.

Agreed on the above.
FWIW, I have ridden Salomon boots the past two years. They are VERY comfortable. Supposedly they run on the narrow side of things in terms of fit. With the Faction, my concern would be that they use a single boa lace. Double boa is the way to go, so you can tighten the top and the bottom of the boot to your preference.

But yes, try on different brands. I'm now riding DC boots and quite liking them.

Basti The RK30s are VERY soft which is nice for the park but lacks response all over the mountain. As a beginner I would suggest you buy bindings that are capable of doing everything. Flux are great and you should check out the TT30. Mid-flex and much more versatile than the RK30.

AssassinMonLV Agreed. Boots have to be tried on. I tried 10+ pairs before I settled before I settled on my Burton Hail.
