Product Info

K2 Cinch CTX Snowboard Bindings 2013: Ushered into a class all its own, the K2 Cinch CTX Snowboard Bindings combine top-end K2 binding tech with the patented Cinch™ System. Flip down the highback, step in, and you’ll be on your way before your friends. Harshmellow™ cushioning and canted footbeds for more of a natural stance while reducing rider fatigue with vibration isolation. This decision won’t be hard, it’s a cinch.

Product Details

Baseplate

Cinch C2 chassis is equipped with Nylon and a responsive Aluminum heelcup, lightweight cored side rails, and tool-less power ramp.

Multi-compatible and Offset discs feature a two slot design and mounts on 4-hole and 3-hole patterns. The offset slots allow for toe-heel centering by rotating it 180 degrees.

Canted Harshmellow™: footbed vibration dampening properties are placed in the heel and toe to absorb chatter and suck up sudden impact from flat landings and rough terrain.

Straps

Thin Cored Caddi ankle straps are ultra-thin, with lightweight construction for high performance comfort from PU laminates.

NEW Tool-Less Universal Toe Straps are cored for a lightweight and secure fit over or on top of your boot. Tool-less cam-lock adjustment.

NEW Cam-Lock Centering is tool-less and secure adjustment allows you to precisely center your straps with ease and speed.

Highback

Cinch Airlock highbacks eliminates the need for traditional forward lean components, creating the lightest high-performance highbacks ever made. The center spine provides heel-side response and forgiving side-to-side flex.

Additional Features

NEW Hella RADchet’s are composite levers that are larger for easy out.

      Comments about K2 Cinch CTX Snowboard Bindings 2013:

      I've been boarding since 84/85 -- taught for several years in New England -- In the last 9 years I've done about 900 days at around 18 areas in the West -- I'm averaging right at a million vert. feet per year. I've use soft boots and hard (one season only!), strap bindings, Clickers step-in, and rear entry. I used my original pair of K2 Cinch for 5 seasons with no serious problems. I did break one toe strap off-piste. It was easy to improvise a repair and get back out OK and a replacement part was available at a local board shop. The pair I just bought is my second and I would not have repeated if I knew of anything better.

      The K2s are easy to get in and out of, easy to adjust for fit and give good control in two ways: first, the boot to binding to board connection is very solid and toe side/heel side control is excellent; second, the adjustability and stiffness of the heel piece and release mechanism means that body English goes straight into the board.

      The only hard spot in use of this system is when trying to put the board on at the end of a hike if you are on a real steep slope and have to face out. I've snapped in on 50 degree icy surfaces facing in and bracing with an ice ax -- you can get used to that. Snapping in is quick and one handed; but doing it facing out trying to hold a heel edge with minimum clearance for fingers and the lever is a breath stopper.

      The only weakness in performance that I find comes in trying to style out with grabs and the like on jumps -- this is not a free style specialist binding.

      Everything else -- GREAT!

      Comments about K2 Cinch CTX Snowboard Bindings 2013:

      These are great bindings, super easy to get in and out with the double action of the high back and the straps. The plastic strap to disengage the binding is really nice, as is being able to adjust the straps from either side.

      Minor complaints: The heel cup is a bit too wide for my boot, so my heel gets a pressure point that was alleviated to some degree by increasing the high back angle, but I probably should have gone a size down on the bindings. Also, the actual levers for tightening the straps don't always catch or release, they're a little tough to use. Finally, I thought these would be constructed of metal from their appearance, but they're made of plastic; they still seem sturdy enough after ~15 days riding them, but time will tell.

      Better than my old Flow Trilogy '11s: My old Flow bindings were a great intro to the back-entry binding, but they tore off the back sole of my boot from catching on the high back, and they broke after a year or so of riding, losing the cable guide metal bit and the plastic clasp breaking (Flows, not K2s!). Flow has also been bad about my warranty claim, no idea about K2.
