    Posted: May/27/2013 at 6:54pm
I'm currently on a pair of (08?) Burton Missions and I'm honestly not a big fan. The cap strap rides up on my boot pretty often, and I've gone through a few buckles.

As far as riding position, I suppose they're good though I haven't ridden enough different binding setups to really know...

I'm moving to Australia in a couple weeks. Looking to pick up some new bindings to take with me and leave the Missions here as a spare set so I have something to use if I come home for x-mas.

I'm bringing a powder board (heli-boarding in NZ) and a mild park board (for just mucking around when I'm riding with my less-experienced Ozzie mates) that I will be using as my "all mountain" board as well. I'd like a versatile, comfortable, quality set of bindings that I can use with either. I don't mind sacrificing a bit of "all-mountain" performance if it makes the binding better in the park, since even when I'm riding groomers I'm looking for stuff to spin off of and grind.

I've narrowed it down to these Burton Triads:

And these Rome S90's:

(Size 12 boots). Price is a factor but the $20 extra for the Triads is a moot issue.

Thanks in advance guys - usually do all of my own research, but I'm totally torn between these two.

I believe the last year Burton made the Triad was 2009-2010.  The Rome S90's are 2-3 years old, too. 

I would expand the scope of your search to include Burton Cartel, Union Force, Rome Targa and Flux DS30 or RK30 bindings.

Not seeing any of those available in a Large, unless I go elsewhere and buy new for more $$$:


It's been my previous experience that picking up a high end binding/board that's discounted heavily due to being a few years old is a much better value than a brand new, lower-model binding.

The only other binding I'm looking at is the Burton P1.1, which is available for $180-$200. Just not sure if it's worth the extra cost...

I haven't tried the S90s, but I love my Triads, I have two pairs of them that I have on both of my boards, they're super comfy, good flex, and durable.  I will have a hard time ever buying new bindings.  I like them a lot more than the 09 Missions and 10 Cartels I've had as well.

You can pick up last year's Cartels or Malavitas for not that much more than that.  Either would be great.

Thanks guys. After a bit more heeing and hawing I pulled the trigger on the Triad's. Looking to do some riding in Australia or New Zealand sometime within the next month so I'll let you know how they work out.Thumbs Up
