Quality binding, but probably too stiff if you are looking to do 30% ground tricks - same for all the ones that you have listed.
Also, surprised that Evo rates them as less stiff than the Charger - IMO the Hefe are about the same, if not stiffer.

Yeah El Hefe is one of the stiffer bindings on the market. If you're looking at Ride, you're better off with the Rodeo (or whatever they call it now).

i would say that the el hefe is the top of the ride binding line. it is very stiff and very freeride powder oriented,

I would say you should shut the fuck up if you do not have anything to add- he can go and read the brochure himself.

I wouldn't put El Hefe's on anything except a dedicated freeride machine. You are much better off with those Salomon Chiefs. Not to mention riding Salomon bindings with boots bumps your binding warranty up to two years on anything that isn't already lifetime. And the Chief is actually a really good binding.

I'm smarter than you.

I bought a set of 2014 El Hefe's.

I really don't know much about them aside from that they look awesome. on my 14 banana magic.

The construction seems top notch and the rachets are really smooth.

Both are probably way more than I need since I just started last march and haven't seen snow in 6 months.....

I'm gonna be the guy on the hill that people look at all my new gear and say to their buddies "That guy really needs to learn how to snowboard." haha

They are "the Boss"............
Any more comments? I'd be interested to here more about them (they're not in stock in my go-to shop, since they're "too expensive, but we've the Capo")

from my experience

i have capos XL and salomon f22 size 13, and i have to tight them very hard to keep my boot still.(there is a little to much room for these boots in there), i guess.

I can let you know mid-December Neni. I have last year's but haven't ridden them as of yet. I can say the quality appears to be awesome and they look great.

One month later.....

They are crap and basically fell apart.

Also the design is flawed if you want an aggressive forward lean.

Stay away.

^^A better explanation of what fell apart and why the lean is flawed would better help those looking for input.

Just picked up Capo's, Revolts & a pair of EX's.

^^Honestly that's really surprising. I've been on Ride bindings almost exclusively for the past 5 or 6 seasons with 3 different bindings (CAD, Rodeo, and Capo). I still own the CAD and Capo with over 50 days on my Capos and another 30 or so on the CADs. Both are still rocking, and honestly I beat the shit out of my gear. Any set of Burtons I've had haven't lasted more than 20 days with the way I ride. It sucks that these issues popped up, especially on the high end binding. Hopefully it was an isolated manufacturing defect.

When I went back to the store to send them in for warranty, I looked at the Capos. They seem to be much better quality than the El Hefe's that I got.

Maybe I got a bad set or something. Either way, it put a sour taste in my mouth and picked up some Unions. They seem A LOT better.

The El hefe is the low rider truck with spinny wheels and neon glow subwoofers. Felt very very very poorly constructed. But I got caught up in the look of them. The buckets are something that really look awesome.

I'm surprised by this statement (not of the quality in general, just the comparison between the two in terms of quality). I've never handled a pair of El Hefe's firsthand, but they are basically the same as the Capos with the exception of the highbacks and ankle straps.

I love my 2013 Capos in the way they ride but I will admit that I still question their long-term durability. I've spent maybe 10 days or so on them at most since I bought them late last year, and my ankle ladders are getting pretty chewed up and the paint on the baseplates is wearing away pretty well.

Still, I like their performance enough to consider buying a cheap used pair to have as a complete parts backup.
