2014 Ride Fame Womens Binding Overview
Hey there. Welcome to the Morning Shred brought to you by snowboards.com. I'm Jenna. I've got Ryan from Ride here and we're going to talk about the Ride Fame.
So, Ryan, this is my favorite binding. This actually my personal binding right here. That it is. Tell us a little bit about it. It's designed, like you said, for an advanced rider such as yourself. Thank you. Toe strap, I'm sorry, the ankle strap is a freestyle strap. AstroGlyde ratchets. Very smooth, tool-less adjustments. The freestyle strap, it gives the support in the form that the advanced charging girl is looking for. Same with the toe strap, we've got the AstroGlyde tool-less adjustment. The 3D mold here which, you know, on our other straps like the Thin Grip, it goes over the top and over the toe. This is basically designed just to go over the toe. Thin Grip material allows it to stretch out to fit just about any toe box in the game. Chassis. We're using the Infinity Chassis here which is adjustable, very easy adjustments. Aluminum Chassis as well but the real kicker is the smaller disc on the bottom. It allows you to feel more of the board, more of the flex. Get a little bit wider or narrower stance out of it. Makes a stiff board feel soft, makes a soft ride even softer. And you can use it on the Channel if you choose to. You can. Each Infinity Chassis will come with 4 extra screws with the normal screws that you're seeing here and those are compatible with the Channel systems out there today.
And then the Highback. Highback, we've got the SlingBack which is fairly stiff, fairly responsive but also has a little bit of give so when you need it to be playful, it's playful so when you want to turn it on and charge it, it's there as well. Footbed system is the Wedgie 2.5. Kind of gives you, lines your feet up and your ankles and your knees, keeps them all in the same place. Gives you a little bit more of a more comfortable riding. Adds more comfort to your riding. Yeah, great binding. Yeah, I think what I really like about this binding is, it is, like you said, it can take the hard charging rider but if you do have a day where you do want to play around a little bit, you know, this strap is fairly soft flexing while giving you a lot of support, you know, when you do notice the Wedgie and kind of that extra leverage over if you're riding wider stance on a rockered board or such. Right. Exactly. So, yeah. Great binding for that intermediate to more of an advanced level girl... More of your advanced level girl such as yourself. Thanks. You know it. ...Looking for that binding that can really charge.
