I've always loved my Ride bindings, always had 3 plus years of use on a set as well.

I've ridden a pair of Ride EX for the last 2 1/2 seasons. I was an intermediate when I got them, but they really helped me take my riding beyond to that advanced level. They are nice and forgiving and you can use them for pretty much anything. I just got a pair of Ride SPi's, but I haven't ridden them yet (hopefully this week some time). My first impression from doing a little living room riding was that the ratchet release on the ankles was far from the "butter smooth" release that Ride describes. One of them, and luckily it's on the foot that doesn't come unbound all day, was really bad. I'm wondering if this one may need to be replaced by Ride. I'll throw down a review once I get them out on the mountain.

I would suggest forgetting about the EXs and looking at the SPIs. If you want something for freestyle go with the P1s. If you want something stiffer and more responsive go with the Cartels or EX/SPI. Not sure about the C02s. People say they don't like the fact that Burton bindings aren't aluminum and that they might break but I haven't had any problems so far with my Customs.

Cartel is made for the park
P1 is made for park + freeride
CO2 for park + freeride

I just called with a owner of a burton shop.
I'm going for the P1's or the Cartels i can't decide.

How are the Cartels made for park? I thought you want bindings with more flex for park and stiff bindings like the Cartels for freeride.

The owner of the burton shop said it was made for the park. Are the cartels stiff of flex? I guess flex so park.
But probably I will go for the p1's

its my understanding that the regular cartels are stiff. If you get the cartel low backs though i would think you would have more mobility.
