"the BOSS" 8/26/2010
Helpful Review?   (7) Yes    (4) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome 390 Boss Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Cant-Bed Options, Straps, Flex
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Holy shit, Rome is headed in the right direction these bad boys. I've never cared for the 390's of the past, but these BOSS binders have changed my mind. I rode them with the 3.5 degree wedge bed under foot and it was an amazing feeling. Pressure is completely taken off your knees and put into a much more natural position. The straps are next generation and are extremely comfortable and plush.The straps are real highlight as well with their new design and push function and comfort to a new level. The flex of these is well rounded and will suit the rider that want to ride anywhere from park to powder.
"Sierra Contact SL" 1/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (5) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Union Sierra Contact SL
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Simple Design,
  • Cons:  Simple Design, Clumsy Straps,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   Put 3 days of riding in on these so far and have very mixed feelings. First day was riding powder on my NS Revlover which pretty much consisted of slashing turns and dodging trees. On this day i found the bindings a little too soft for me. Numerous time i would try and lay hard heelside and could litterally feel the highback almost fold over on me. Second and third day stayed in the park with them, much better in the park. The flex of the bindings suited park riding much better, but still a tad softer than i would prefer. Adjustability on these is the same as other Union grippers, simple and efficent, but maybe a little too simple. Not being able to adjust the position of the ankle strap (ala Burton bindings) is a real negative for me, but i feel that on all Union bindings. The toe strap is one rarely seen on Unions and must be adjusted near perfect to get great function out of them. The ankle strap is nothing special, keeps my boot down and that is about all. It does fly all over the place when not strapped in which is kinda annoying. Overall feelings, it's a soft binding that i won't be using to ride the whole mountain most of the time or the park a lot of time, Forces are better suited for me at my size (195 lbs). But when i want to spend the day in the park jibbing my face off then these are binders will get there use.

yes you can, once you adjust them correctly

thecarp
can you use the toe straps as a toe cap?

coryrides

"Oakley Splice" 12/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Oakley Splice Goggles Jet Black/Black Iridium
  • Pros:  Wide vision, Excellent Optics,

Experience:   Oakley introduced the Splices as correlation to the Crowbars, but with a wider nose bridge to alleviate pressure on the nose when wearing them... they succeeded. I ride both Crowbars and Splices and the Splices definitely offer a slightly more comfortable fit over the bridge of the nose for me. The field of vision is slightly bigger on the Splices over the Crowbars as well. As for the optics Oakley really is the industry standard. From their Persimmon lens to their Iridium and Polarized lens' you can't go wrong as long as you have the right lens for the right conditions if you choose to not go with with an all-around type lens. For me, black iridium and pink iridium are the only lenses needed 90% of the time. I do have Hi-Yellows as well for those super gray days and night riding.
"Real nice bindings" 12/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Malavita Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Ankle Strap, Forgiving flex, Very cushony
  • Cons:  Toe-Strap,

Experience:   I got the 2011 back last spring and have put probably around 50 days on them so far. Durability wise they are great, no breakage issues or wear spots to speak of. The flex of these are great for someone who makes the whole mountain their park and does not care for the aggressiveness of the Cartels. Slightly softer than the Cartels and also less natural forward lean than the Cartels. The ankle strap to me is a huge plus. The width of it and it's asymmetrical design really helps distribute the pressure across the strap and eliminate any pressure points. For as comfy as a strap as it is, it is still very supportive. My only real gripe thus far is the toe strap. I replaced mine with the toe-strap from Cartels and like it much better. The fit of the toe-strap will completely depend on the individuals boots, so what i may find didn't fit well could very well fit another perfect. I am also a big fan of asymmetrical high-backs, which is completely preference to the individuals. I highly recommend this binding.
"Quiver of One??" 12/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Joystick Wide Snowboard 156 Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Great Flex, Edge Hold, ICS
  • Cons:  ICS,

Experience:   The Joystick is the one Burton board i would actually purchase without thinking about it. I've had the pleasure of demoing this board multiple times and each time it is hard to give it back. It's got a great all-mtn freestyle flex to hit, somewhere middle of the rode. Stiff enough to absolutely bomb groomers and carve like a champ, but soft enough to go get playful jibbing. I felt as though it is slightly softer in the tips and tails than under foot which was a great combo. Not usually a fan of V-Rocker, but i enjoyed it on this deck. If you wanted to have a one deck arsenal the Joystick should be on the list of boards to consider.
"Smith Holt" 12/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Smith Holt Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  Ventialtion, Interchangable fit pads,
  • Cons:  Slightly heavier than some other helmets,

Experience:   The Smith Holt is probably the most popular helmet on the market for many good reasons. First off is the style, simple and efficent, nuff said. Second is the ventilation. I have yet to have any issues with my head being too warm or having my goggles fog. The vents in the front brimish area of the helmet do a real good job of allowing air to flow into the vents on the top of goggles, a key to preventing fogging. The Holt, along with all other Smith helmets, comes with many different fit pads to get that custom fit for any head shape. The ear pads are also removable and Smith also offers audio ear pads for those who wish to take that option for their musical needs. For me this helmet doesn't have that clunky feel that a lot of other helmets have, but that is also because the helmet fits me well. I highly recommend this helmet for anybody looking for a simple and effective helmet that does not break the bank.
"Not a fan" 12/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Whammy Bar Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Jibby Flex, ICS,
  • Cons:  Mid-Scoop,

Experience:   When riding the Whammy bar one thing really kills this board for me: Mid-Scoop. It makes the board too loose and it rolls on edge to easily when jibbing. As a park/jib board, not too sure why anyone would want to roll on to the edge of a board that easily when jibbing, just doesn't make sense. The flex of the board is great for park/jib riding, soft to press and manipulate all over and very forgiving on not so perfect landings.
"Very Nice!!" 12/22/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Union Force
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand, Popular model, Easy installation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   After hearing all the hype on Union binders i had to try some out and must say the hype was right, these bindings are sweet. Good adjustability and good boot hold. Great All-Mtn binder that excels everywhere i've taken them. Union customer service is also top notch, which is real nice. DO NOT HESITATE ON UNION BINDINGS!!
"Awesome Boots!!" 12/22/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 32 TM Two
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Heel hold, Comfortable, Easy lacing, Traction, Good quality, Warm, Well known brand

Experience:   Got about 8 days in these so far this season and must say they are the best boots i've had. Stiff enough for responsive shredding, and soft enough to press and tweak. Super comfortable and look steezy as hell in the emerald colorway.
