Ride Contraband Bindings
Has Anyone had any experience with these bindings? I'm wondering about the durability of the V-strap. To me, it looks like it would bust apart on a cold day. Would this be a good binding for someone who splits time between park and freeride? If not, what would be a good set of bindings.

wow ive never seen any binding like that. i have no experience but i would assume that those would be junk.
i love burton custom bindings, alot of my friends ride rome and k2.

I'm calling those bindings the biggest flop of 08/09 season. They fail miserably. That binding destroyed my foot. Some of my shop guys actually had their toes pop out of it. I'd look elsewhere at something thats a bit more all mountain of a binding than those things.

Great idea, but it needs a shite ton of work before I even consider buying them.

If you want teh speed, look into Flows.

Is there any difference in the 07/08 k2 formula and the 08/09 model? Any particular Flow bindings I should look at? (all mountain-freestyle)

With flows don't go under the M7 anything under them is crap. For all mountain though I'd look at the NXT AT's I owned them and they were really solid. The formula's toe strap changes this year compared to last years.

my bf and i went to the local shop to check the contrabands out (he's looking for an alternative to his flow bindings). We messed with the binding for at least an hour and could not get it set right for his size 12, 32 lashed boot. The guys at the shop couldnt figure it out either. I personally think the bindings are a good idea, but they still have alot of kinks to work out. Im looking foward to seeing how Ride improves them for next year.

I hear the Ride team riders liked them. Of course, there are some issues that need addressing.

And no, it's not a freeride binding.
