But that's an easy habit to pick up (call it...

The NX2's are THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS.
The Gnu bindings knock off $50-$125 off that depending on what model you pick - all Gnu bindings have that auto-release feature on the...

They only have videos for this year's models, there's no references to last year, and they've taken down last year's videos.

Yes, in fact the resorts around here don't have much vertical and are 100% hardpack, so for a lifelong skateboarder like me (since the 80's), it's pretty much all like park riding no matter where you...

Flux RK30 2013

Since I decided not to gamble on rear-entry tech that isn't mature yet (decided I've been riding too long and want to prioritize feel), I've been led to Flux by some friends and specifically the...

And by 2014 you can come to terms with, as well as save up the
THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS that these bindings cost.

I'm curious about this as well.

I'm a lifelong skateboarder and snowboarder, so the idea of a binding that creates a more skate-like feel definitely sounds cool.

But, on the other hand, I'm...
