    Posted: Oct/24/2006 at 10:56pm
Mike Says: Companies like Salomon are great because they design different products for different abilities and attitudes. The Salomon Relay Pro binding is designed for riders who demand the most out of their equipment. With Salomon's patented technology, you can expect the Relay Pro to be the best everywhere on the mountain. They are stable on big landings, transfer quickly from edge to edge, are very light weight and are very comfortable! The Relay bindings are all about comfort!



Aaron Says: Salomon Relay Pro is one of the latest performance innovations from Salomon. The Relay system is so technologically advanced I can barely wrap my mind around the concepts behind it, so I will leave that to Salomon. However I can tell you that Salomon Relay system gives you unparalleled comfort without sacrificing any edge to edge response or adding weight. It's hard to be a leader in the industry but someone has to do it!

These things rode really well once they were set up. They feel almost as responsive as the SPX55 (which moves when you think about thinking about turning), but tone it down enough to make them a little forgiving. they have a nice flex and i found that i didn't really notice them being there  super board feel and they were comfortable when i held an edge for a long while (like on flats). as always, the Fast Fit on the toe straps is great, the padding on both straps i perfect, in fact the toe strap has been imporoved in both positions.

the only downsides i have found is that they were little rough on my heels sometimes and the toe strap likes to pop out of the leather that encloses it. this is a pain only because of the fast fit, it takes bare fingers to get it back in.

Quick question: Can you sum up the differences between the Relays, The Relay Pros, and the XLT's? It seems that base material and sole materials are the only difference between them.

On sizing, I ride a 28.5 F:DB(05). Should I get the medium or large binding for this boot?

I am considering getting these after my fave snowboard purchase ever - my 05/06 F:DB's, which are the best boots I have ever put on my feet. I figure a binding from Salomon might be the perfect companion to these magical foot-wraps. I don't want to overbuy (new baby in the house), but if the XLTs offer something astounding over the pros and relays I'd consider them.

Thanks!

Don.

Edit: The folks at the shop were kind enough to answer over the phone - the 28.5 size is best served by the Mediums in F series boots (20, 24, DB). For most, the Pros are a very acceptable alternative to the XLT's, the differences being titanium vs steel rod, slight difference on the sole material (air packs vs just EVA), a stiffer highback w/ Carbon Fiber, a slightly different base material (compolite vs 45% glass) and of course the color, which is made to match the F LTD's.

Evermod, when you say rough on the heels, can you elaborate? Also, do you ride F series boots or another brand? The weirdness of this binding seems like they would be sort of picky AFA boot selection is concerned.

Hi everyone,these bindings are great!i bought a pair last month and they really impressed me.They are comfy and flexy!then they improved the feeling with my snowboard, a 04/05 Ride Fleetwood. My previous bindings were a pair of 04/05 Burton Custom...good  bindings ok, but not as much as the pros!took a little bit to get used to, but then you will never go back...
i have to say regulations are not so easy if compared to Burton, especially if you're on the snow, but this is an acceptable price to pay for me: once i found the right setup, there's no reason to change it.
I have bought a pair of Salomon f22 size 30.5 from Sierra because Salomon didn't have my size here in Italy...today they have arrived with ups!I tried them on and i have to say they are really on another level if compared to my old fatty Northwave Vintage!I can't wait to test them on the snow, but i think i will enjoyWink
As soon as i test them, i will put a little review for the boots too.
Sorry for my bad english!
Ciao
