"5150 Empress Binding"
- Name: 2009 5150 Empress Snowboard Bindings
- Pros: Strong, med stiff binding, Durable toe and ankle straps and ratchets,
- Flex: mid
I bought these bindings second hand, and they had been used for a season. I have ridden 15 days in these bindings and I'm amazed at how strong and durable they feel. They are quite a solid flexing binding but that's how I like them, they feel as though they will hold me securely in and let me take more aggressive edge turns. The ratchets let you tighten down as much as you like and I haven't had the straps or the ratchets themselves slip once, as I've seen happen in other bindings. These bindings feel like a really solid good quality no fuss binding.
