Stainless doesn't rust at all.

I dont know if the DC PLY has stainless steel edges but I doubt it does considering it DID rust.

I always wipe my board down with a towel after every session.

Does wonders.

Well let me re-phrase, if you have rust issues you don't have stainless steel

Reviving an old thread, but whenever I'm done riding, I always seem to have snow on and around my bindings, although I do wipe the edges down, I'm scared that this snow will melt then rust the edges. I've tried to take the build up off, but it never all comes out of every cranny.

Funny that the email notification for this thread came through my phone just as I was wiping my board down before loading it into my truck last night haha.

Yeah so it's sort of impossible to get all the snow off the bindings. What I do is bang off/brush off as much as I can, wipe down the edges, load it up.

When I get home, I bring it in and rest it vertically against a wall (tail on a towel to collect water). Wipe it down again. Any melting snow or water from the bindings at that point will drain down to the tail and not lay on the edges. Air drying it this way helps also.
