Sellout Risk: Very High
Built just for the ladies, Ride VXn bindings are designed around the needs of the advancing intermediate, all-mountain rider. These all-terrain, freestyle bindings take any situation thrown at them, from peak to park, and enhance the performance of your ride as they do. With their LuxLite highbacks, designed with women's riding stances in mind, forgiving flex and women-specific top flare with full-wrap padding add comfort. The comfort ankle straps, featuring shaped construction and dual-density EVA/polyethylene padding, provide the perfect balance of cushy comfort and precise response.
First, I just want to clearly state that these are decent bindings for the price. They hold well and seem decently sturdy. However, be warned that you could be spending a while at the bottom trying to get your foot unhooked. Be sure that if you're buying these that your boot size isn't at the higher end of the sizes, or else you will have a hell of a time getting unstrapped.
I've bought two pairs of this binding for 2 different girls I was helping with snowboarding. When these bindings go on sale you can get them for a really good price. I have not had any issues with with either binding breaking. Ride does offer warranty on certain parts of the binding, I believe the base plate as well as the heel cup. Their customrer service can also help you to replace any other parts should they break. But I have noticed the difficulty in getting out of their bindings. I've had to help both girls on numerous occasion out of their bindings as it fails to release. The control and the comfort over regular rental bindings and the price however is more than worth this minor nusaince.
I took these bindings out last season. Was thinking of buying them from a store so demo'd a pair for a few days. At first I was very very excited. Loved the board binding integration. Felt a lot different to my Lexas. They sit a lot closer to the board and I felt much more 'at one'. Also easier to press. However, I found trying to exit from the bindings was very tricky. My friend who only ever rides with ride told me to get hard (and that it's normal). But really... busting my butt to get out is so not worth it. I've never had to exert so much effort for other bindings :) Also found that sometimes as I was riding they'd come apart on their own accord. Go figure. I rathered the safety of my Lexas so just stuck to them. Let down... perhaps the neweys are better?
