Small review of the 2010 SLR and the 2010 Ride nr's
Here's a small review of the 2010 slr and the 2010 NRC's. I've only had one day on them so far, but I will add more as I use them.
I've always had foot pain while riding due to my wide stances. These bindings seemed to eliminate almost all of my pain due to the canting footbeds. The footbeds are extremely easy to adjust and even have a small number that changes to show you how many degrees the footbed is angled when you adjust the screws.
These are easily the most comfortable bindings I've ever used.when you strap into them they feel like a pillow underneath you. The adjustable ankle strap is rather nice because it can help eliminate any pressure points. (if you have any, I didn't) The "inserts" inside of the ankle strap are also removable to make he strap a little softer if you want to ride more park.
These are some of the most adjustable bindings out there. The footbed can be canted and can raise in other directions to eliminate toe/heel drag.
Can't really say too much about this. One problem that I noticed was the ratchet on the right bindings toe strap seemed to slip when strapping in. It's probably just a lemon ratchet though, I already emailed ride to let them know. I will add more to this section later as I use them more
2010 Neversummer SLR
I bought this board back in September for right about $550. I will a little apprehensive on just buying it without demoing it due to it having RC (rocker camber) which I had never ridden before. I was only on standard camber boards, TBT, Banana, and a few rocker variants. After using this board it was one of the best snowboards, if not the best I have ever ridden.
The rocker camber has a very unique feel to it. It allows you to have fun and play around on the board because of the rocker, but the camber allows you to get those snappy feeling turns.
This board is also extremely fast. I was flying past many people without ANY chatter or other problems.
Over all if you have not used this board you should definitely look into demoing one or purchasing one.
I will write more about the board as I use it.
