Snowboard Binding Buyer’s Guide


  1. I ride all mountain but I am starting to focus my efforts on freestyle. I’m really looking forward to purchasing a set of Union bindings and trying them out. I love every C3 Worldwide.

    I agree that the Contraband system seems interesting. From what I’ve read on various forums some people have demoed them and really like them.

  2. C3 Worldwide “brand”, that is.

  3. I ride all mountain and prefer Flow bindings. Having tried other bindings first, I like the way my Flows distribute pressure across my feet.

    That said, theres no substitute for trying different bindings.

  4. Hey RL, let me know how those Union bindings work out when you end up getting them.

    Ben, you make a good point about Fows and their ability to distribute pressure.

    Has anyone ever tried Bent Metal bindings?

  5. Nice tips Adam.
    I started out with flow bindings too and definitely agree with the distribution pressure. I heard K2 cinch are also good all mountain to throw another similar design out there. I have K2 formula at the moment but I only had a chance to try them a couple of times to comment. Also VERY interested in comments on the Bent Metal bindings when someone tries them.

  6. I had a pair of Ride bindings (think the vxn’s) I bought with my board, but after one season I traded them in for Salomon bindings and I don’t think I will ride anything else. Absolutely in love with them. One of my old bosses at my mountain swore by them and now I know why. I’ve also converted some friends!

  7. Agreed i hate waiting in long lines thats why i love lake louise i find its never more then a 10 min line and if you stay at the top and take the lift up there you will never have to wait in line.

  8. These are great tips.
    I just bought some Rossignol bindings, but haven’t had a chance to try them out. I am an intermediate rider. Any insights?

  9. I have had two pairs of Burton Bindings and I love them.. tried a pair of Ride’s a few years ago and they did not even last the full season.
