Ride Capo vs Union SL

Looking at some new bindings, and have narrowed them down to the Capo's and the SL's.

I love the wedgie footbeds, as well as the overall style of the Capo's.

On the other hand, I've heard nothing but great things about Union bindings and am willing to give the SL's a try if it's worth it.

They are both the same price right now online and want to pick them up before they are gone.

PS: Sorry wrong section, just realized.

What kind of board are you looking to put them on?

Just picked up a pair of Capos looking for a stiffer binding. Definitely not disappointed, but they are on the stiffer side for bindings. More like a Rome Targa than a park binding like the 390's.

Put them on my Mod Rocker.

The Capo's are stiffer then the SL's. I wouldn't jib with Capo's. SL's are more versatile, but if you're looking to charge, go with the Capo.

I will be mounting them on a 2013 Forum Youngblood. It's going to be my freestyle board.

I Jibbed Big Bear all day with Capo's and I liked it.

I'm pretty sure Matt Ladley was riding Capos in the super pipe practice when his foot came out. Was it an equipment malfunction???

For your riding, I'd suggest the Rodeos over the Capos. Same base/frame with a softer highback and ankle strap. I ride the Capos and love them. Second season on them now, over 40 days on them, going strong. But they are pretty stiff so if you're riding more park, I'd do the Rodeos.

Never been on Unions. I know the toe strap sucks and I've had friends who've had durability issues, so take that as you will.

I was actually considering the rodeos as well. For the price point they seem to be a great deal, and the flex rating seems like a better fit for a freestyle setup. Love the color options as well.

I gotta say I'm not the biggest fan of ride toe straps though. Maybe its just my boots but they like to slide up a alot. Although I agree the unions don't seem to be any better in that category.
