I would stray away from these. I went through 2 of them and they arent that great. They take forever to adjust. They are very customizable (?) which can be cool, but they are VERY boot specific. Mine were adjusted right, and my boot even came out on the lift. I didnt even get to ride that day cuz my boot kept falling out. The price went down like 90 bucks, so thats not a good sign either. They are light, but i didnt even get a chance to really ride them, cuz my boots slipped out so easy. I'd go with the Ride SPi. I got those as an exchange and they are sick. SUPER responsive, fairly light, sturdy, and customizable to the T. I love my SPi's. Get those instead

If your boot is popping out you didn't have them dialed in right.

Have to agree that if your boot was slipping out, you didn't have them adjusted correctly. The Contraband is not a binder for everyone, but it does what it's designed to do.

Just noticed that these are up on Brociety right now. $96. If they were at $50 I actually would have picked up a pair. If you're a Jibber this binder will work fine for you.

They were definitey dialed in right. Took them to the shop too and they adjusted them for me too. They just arent for everyone's boots. If you have low-pro boots, they might work better, but i went through 2 different pairs and they still did not function. Not only were they not letting me ride, but i had a couple pieces of hardware bust on me while adjusting them. The SPi's are way better period. Way stronger and alot easier to adjust. I cant even feel them when riding. I recommend those still.

If they were $50, I would've picked up a pair to try as well.

Sad to hear that you didn't get a chance to ride them. The thing about these bindings are that you really need to know what you're doing to get them dialed in properly. Sadly, not all shop employees know what they were doing, so maybe it didn't get dialed in as properly as possible. No matter, you found a pair of bindings you like, so .
