Ehhh Did i make a mistake?

Im a intermediate snowboarder who has been on the hill for 'bout 2 years.

Anyways, I've been renting the whole time and it's been a pain in the ass. So a yesterday I went out and bought my first gear, because me and my pals are going to Tremblant during the weekend.

I felt like I didnt do too much research.

K2 Fuse
Ride LX Bindings
Ride Anthem boots.


Are these okay to last me awhile? I couldn't really find anything on the internet, so if anyone has had past experience with those equips, some input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Well its all name brand stuff K2 and ride make good stuff. I guess the question is on how long stuff will last is what type of riding you do and how many time you go snowboarding in a year.

No experience with that set up, but there's nothing wrong with it. All are respected brands as far as snowboarding goes.

Put your mind at ease and worry more about riding?

I don't know that board, but the bindings are entry level and if your semi-serious about riding, you'll probably want nicer ones sooner than later. Nothing wrong with them necessarily, but they won't be any better than your rentals.

As long as the boots fit, then there is nothing wrong with your purchase. If you don't know how to fit boots on carpet, you'll find out if you made a mistake after a couple days riding.

I have a k2 fuse its not a bad board at all very stable at high speeds for a lower end stick mid flex on it more of a all mountain board. Everything you got is brand name and should be better then rental stuff considering its new.

Alright thanks for the replies guys.

Just found out the '09 K2 Fuse is basically a SMU board that is basically the K2 Brigade with a different name.

It's going to be far better than rentals. You'll have the same equipment each time, and it will form to you personally, instead of the 100s of other people using it over the decades.

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

My only recommendation would be to get a different set of bindings. That binding is on par with basic rental gear.
