If you have questions about Ride gear

Ride is revamping their forum right now, so I don't really have anywhere to "play". So for now I'll hold up here, so if you have any questions about any of Ride's stuff make a thread or ask here and I'll be happy to help you out.

Would you say Ride DVA are good bindings?

I actually have a question for you. I have a pair of 2013 Capos and once in a while, the ratchet handle on one of my ankle straps will stick out after I've tightened it down. That is, it doesn't snap back flush with the ratchet like it should. It's not a huge problem because the ratchet itself stays locked down, but I wonder if there is some sort of lubricant that would be plastic friendly that would help this. Or do I need a new ratchet handle?

The real question is what will Sean Tedore do with the mess that is Ride to fix the last 8 years of steady decline as a brand. How can they salvage their image while re-branding and integrating a plastic baseplate after decades of touting aluminum is the best.

Because someone has to call it how they see it!

My 2013 Ride Rodeos toe cap mesh broke apart. And on harsh landings the ankle strap would release. Paint is cheap too and chips and rubs off easy. This upsets me seeing I paid $260 brand new.

Bindings are completely preference... If you like a responsive tray with an ankle strap that has a medium flex and a highback that can be tweaked a bit more than normal but you can still push on it when needed then yes, it is a good binding. But if you like more response or less response then you might not like it.

This usually happens due to over tightening and "locks out". Is your strap centered on your boots and are you cranking the ratchet down to the point that you can't tighten it anymore?

Fun board if you're looking for something that is playful and loose. The Lowrize rocker gives it a decent kick and keeps it from catching edges, but the turn initiation does take some getting used to with that much rocker. But the flat platform under foot does keep it stable at higher speeds and the Carbon Array 3 and Poprod 1.0 gives it just enough POP to play around but not so much that it stiffens the board up in any way.

I've only met Sean once years ago before he left K2 to go to Capita. Great guy and I think he'll do some great things at Ride.

The Plastic trays are something Ride did for retailers. Unfortunately the price of aluminum, like many other things, has gradually gone up through the years. The current price of it was keeping Ride from offering an entry or lower level binding to retailers at that lower price point as other companies producing plastic trays are doing.

That level rider typically isn't looking for performance, they are looking what will fit into their budget. So to continue to offer products to customers in that market, Ride decided to do a few plastic trays to them as you don't want to exclude an entire segment of riders from your binding offerings.

I personally spent about 3 months on the KX last season. It isn't for me, but it's a solid binding that will get the job done for someone on a budget. Ride still 100% stands behind aluminum and you won't see a plastic tray beyond entry and low level bindings in their lineup. The mid and higher end bindings will continue to be aluminum like they always have.
