2014 Ride Revolt Binding Overview
Hey there. Welcome to the Morning Shred brought to you by snowboards.com. I'm Jenna. This is Ryan from Ride and we're going to talk about the Ride Revolt binding.
So, Ryan, this is sort of a freestyle take on the EX, correct? Yes, yes. Or step up. Yeah, step up with a couple extra bells and whistles. Yep. So, who is it designed for then? Intermediate to advanced freestyle guy. Okay. We've got the Freestyle Core Ankle Strap which is going to reduce a little bit of weight, make it a little bit more flexible in here. We also have the Thin Grip toe strap which can go over the top or over the toe. The Thin Grip stretches out which allows it to stretch over just about any boot or toe box in the game. Which I still think is one of the best toe straps out there personally. It just fits on every thing so... It makes it easy to do that fitting and makes it a right fitting.
We've got a tool-less adjustments. Roller Ratchet. Also, we've got the Wedgie footbed. Gives you some support and a canted angle gives you a little bit more comfortable added pop sort of speak. The real deal on this binding is going to be the Slimeback. We've taken urethane from our sidewalls in our snowboards and crossed it over into the bindings which it gives you a very playful, playful binding but coming back on it, gives you the resistance that you need and the torque that you need to play. Very, very fun binding. And one of the questions people always have is, when it gets cold, is it gonna freeze up? And I've demo-ed them before, I'm sure you ride them all the time... I ride this binding specifically and I've never had it freeze up. Great. It's a great binding all the way around. So, again, just a good binding for that intermediate, maybe advanced-level guy who's just looking for a soft flexing binding. Exactly, for that advanced guy that's looking for maybe a stiffer board and a softer binding, it's a great complement. Great.
