Default What is the difference between mens and wemans bindings?

I'm looking for new bindings and my feet are getting too big for kids bindings but people are saying at 75 lbs mens bindings are too stiff for me; they reccomend weman's bindings and I'm just wondering what is the difference?

I don't really think there is a big difference besides colors. I think stiffness is more dependant on how the binding is made between models not mens vs. womens. Just bring your set up to the shop and try out a bunch of bindings. Btw who are "people"? If it's anyone besides a good snowboard shop or someone who works in the industry I'd be leary of what "people" say, myself included...

how big are your feet lol? if your 75 lbs i would imagine you have pretty small feet, but womens bindings will be softer and smaller.

Womens bindings have different stiffness levels since women are typically lighter per pound that men. They have lower highbacks because womens calf muscles are lower down the leg. Mens bindings can push into a woman's calf muscle and cause pain. They are also designed to work with womens boots and may not fit properly with mens gear.

I always recommend women buy womens gear.

75lbs? Are you like 10 or something? Look into youth bindings.

Buy mens bindings, you're only 14 and you have a lot of growing to do. If you're worried about them bring too stiff, buy soft binfings.
