Default Now Bindings

Saw Cheo's post about switchback and that was quite entertaining. Anyway saw these and thought it was pretty cool. Something new that isn't something that's aesthetic or completely overboard for new tech. I personally think they're a cool idea. Looks look they would be cool to ride around and be good for buttering, but when it came to jumps it would mess me up. I haven't ridden them though and I think this is something you would really have to ride before you judge it.

Soooooo what you guys have to say?

Disclaimer: No need to bring up what pros ride them.

I rode them for a few days between the SIA and Stratton demos and didn't want to give them back. You don't really feel them doing anything different, they just make everything a little easier and more natural feeling. At first I was worried that they were going to be too easy and I was going to get into trouble because of it, but that wasn't the case at all. For the east coast ice, they take some of the stress off of your feet since the binding is doing some of the work for you, and the different bushing options allow you to select the level of dampening you want. Can't wait to get my hands on a pair that I can ride all the time!

I'd only like my bindings to flex like that on my jib board. They literally went and took the edge response out of the binding. Pretty poor idea.

Have you tried them?

I find them to have greater response than traditional bindings. But the response comes more from your feet and less from the highback. Seems to make sense to have the response closer to the board since that is what you are controlling.

Yeah that gap that opens and closes between the binding and board at each pivot looks super responsive. Here's a novel idea, if you widen the gap it gets less responsive, if you close it, like eliminate it all together it get's more responsive. It's physics, not religion.

You gotta have faith. Don't think about it, just believe us.
