Board Used: Telos Mike Ranquet

Rider Weight: 200lbs

Location: Copper Mountain

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, high winds, ice, chop, chunder, frozen fast and perfect groomers.

Binding Adjustability: you have a fully adjustable heel cup, a toe ramp that slides forward, flip tabs on the straps to lengthen or shorten them, a push pin system on the toe straps to center them, forward lean adjustment on the highback, and highback rotation.

Straps: The Aux tech straps contour around any boot shape and just lock it down. These reduce the need for excess material and rely heavily on your boots for that. The toe strap just fits any boot shape and stays secure.

Ratchets: These are smooth like butter. They climb well and the one finger quick release works exactly how you would want it to.

Highbacks: It’s a highback and it does its thing. It’s a little more rigid so when you drive back into it you notice that.

Binding Flex: The overall flex is a middle of the road all mountain freestyle. This means it has power when you need and will notice that when you drive into the straps or highback on a turn. But it will also have lateral play due to the asym wrap allowing for more flex on the outside.

Ride: It’s a smooth consistent ride that dampens as you would want but doesn’t give a huge dead spot underfoot making it a bit more lively.

Rider in Mind: All mountain freestyle guy that does it all.

Personal Thoughts: Honestly nothing has changed since I rode it last fall, I just wanted an updated review because I know that this binding is solid and this review will keep it on peoples minds. If you want a solid all mountain freestyle binding look no further.
