Move up out of the ordinary into the extraordinary with the Uprise bindings by K2. Featuring the revolutionary patented Auto technology where the ankle and toe strap work in unison for a one ratchet entry and exit system which you can then set it and forget it. Also included are the New Rocklock highbacks that have an asymmetrical design which provide a more natural stance with a seamless transfer of power. While the base is all about hyper responsiveness and control with the Harshmellow dampening to reduce chatter, canted footbeds that diminish fatigue, and tool less power ramps. This is quite possibly the evolution of the snowboarding world, and of course, K2 is leading the charge with the Uprise.
Very nicely made binding. This was my first time trying K2's Auto system and I really liked it. First day took a little getting used to but now that I am used to them its faster to get into and out of than a normal binding. I rate them as about a half a notch stiffer than my 390's. These are mounted on a Never Summer SL and have been to every part of the mountain and preformed great. I have ridden them on everything from super steep rock infested tree runs to park laps and they have never let me down.
