2014 Ride Rodeo 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've got the Ride Rodeo here.
Ryan. who's this binding for? This binding's designed for intermediate to more of that advanced freestyle rider. Okay. And what makes it great for that guy? We'll start off with the ankle strap. We've got the Freestyle Asym Strap. Gives you all the support where you need it. We've got the AstroGlyde ratchets. Tool-less adjustments. We'll move to the toe strap here, we've got the Thin Grip material but it's a 3D mold versus the Revolt and the EX, this is going to give you more of a molded shape to go over the boot. It just allows it to stretch in all different directions, huh? Exactly. Exactly. The chassis is the Infinity Chassis. It runs on a smaller disc. Okay. Versus your normal disc. What that littler disc allows you to do is it allows you to feel more of the board. It gets a little bit more out of your stance and also gets a little bit more flex out of the board as well. So rather than that big giant dead spot, you've got now more of the chassis actually making contact with the board and just that you know, able to flex, I guess, with the board, correct? Being able to feel that flex as well.
We've got the Wedgie 2.5 footbed. Really good, comfortable. Also, with that 2.5, which most of the freestylers use, it gives them that added pop and comfort where their knees align over their ankles and their ankles over their feet just giving them a more, an easier way, more comfortable way to ride. Ergonomically correct, right? Ergonomically, exactly. Thank you. The highback is the Stealth Highback. It's got a little bit of give to it and it stiffens up as it goes through it making it a very reliable and adjustable binding for your riding style so if you want to turn it on, it's going to be there and rip and grip and if you're just playing on the rails, it gives you a little bit of flex here and there. So, nice for that freestyle guy but also for all-around riding it's going to have that performance and that response. Exactly. Exactly. Cool.
