Ride Contraband LTD vs nitrane
 
I'm curious if theirs any real major difference between the two, I'm considering throwing a pair of these on my jibstick next year and I'm wondering if the nitrane is just that much better performance wise to be worth another 30 bucks. :dunno:

All I do know is that the Nitrane has 4.0 and 2.5 wedgie beds and I think an adjustable strap stiffness that the LTD doesn't.

contraband also has a more flexy highback.

NItetrain is the stiffer more "freeride" centric version if you're jibbing go Contraband.

Bumping this back up...

Is that true? I am curious because I have 08/09 Contrabands on my Jibstick and I love them to death. I like the chassis, the straps, everything.

For my "freeride" board, i wanna get new bindings this season and I would totally be cool with staying with Ride. I know I can get some Rome 390s, or even something used since i barely use that board compared to the Jibstick... but I really like Contrabands and the new Nitrane ones have really got me thinking about them.


So yeah...

go nitetrains then. Basically there was enough demand from guys that wanted it to be stiffer so they made it, plus the new wedgie beds are SICK!

Cool. I will definitely look into them then. Last year I got a new jib board, new bindings, new pants, new boots and new gloves.

This year i def. need a new jacket and bindings for the freeriding board... and goggles. Haha. I think I can just re-arrange some shit so that I can afford the bindings without a second thought.

Are they supposed to be really comfortable or something?

They reduce the angle of your foot/ankle in relation to the rest of your leg.
