Bindings: K2 Cinch CTX 2010 vs Burton C60 2009
I've been riding K2 Cinch CTX bindings for the last 5 seasons. Before that I used clickers. The last was the 2007/2008 binding which I got last season. I've been riding for about 16 years Freeride and am 41.
Anyway.. The heal pullup part of it was very hard to do. The toe strap wore out in just a few months of use. I ended up sending them back to K2 at the end of last season. They are replacing them with K2 Cinch CTX 2010.
I figured it might be a good time for me to try regular strap-in bindings. When these were at the manufacturer I purchased some Burton C60 2009 and used them a few times in the spring. They seemed to hold my Burton Driver X bindings in a lot better especially around the toe. For some reason, my feet felt less fatigued as well.
Anyway.. so now I'm at the beginning of 2009/10. I have the Burton C60 mounted on my Ride Concept UL board (also 2008/2009). I also have a brand new set of K2 Cinch CTX bindings in a box.
So... Do I bother trying the new Cinch's? Or just sell them on ebay. I like the idea of getting in and out a little quicker, but if the bindings aren't going perform as well or fit as good, I think at this point I'm willing to sacrifice a little ease of entry.
Mods: Sorry.. screwed up and put this in the wrong forum. Can you move this to general equipment?
