Product Info

The Ride EX Snowboard Bindings are the definition of performance and value. Built to be highly versatile and durable, the EX feature’s a Foundation Chassis to provide all-mountain mid-flex performance, and the Wedgie™ 1.5 footbed with a subtle angle for a mix of a natural, comfortable stance and power. Combine that with the EX’s classic ThinGrip™ toe strap, NEW RAD Ankle strap and AstroGlyde OG ratchets, you won’t find a better value for any level rider.

i bought these bindings to replace my rome targas. the targas were way too bulky and heavy for my liking. they were super comfy though (the reason i rocked them for so long). i decided to go with the EX because they are so light and looked like solid bindings, also they have the wedgie pad. these bindings are sooooo legit. they made my set up so much lighter and they didnt lack any comfort what so ever. first day out i got a few new tricks and took no time and effort to get used to. i highly recommend the EX to everyone at all levels of riding. these things are SICK!!

Great binding was a good medium flex for speed and jibs in the park
Only downfall I could find is the toe strap would loosen up while under heavy stress ie.. Steep fast runs or hard jibs in the park was not a huge deal for me to reach down ocassinally to give an extra rachet to it

                  This is my second pair of Ride EX bindings. Ride has made great improvements to these bindings. The biggest change is how smooth the ratchets work and they release with little effort. The toe strap also has a nice rubbery net that hugs to your boot. If you have not tried Ride bindings lately, you should.

                  I liked the bindings but they only lasted one season. The buckles started to brake and the toe ladder started to wear down. But they are very comfortable and great for the price.

                          Great basic binding, with angled foot beds and aluminum bases. The ankle strap is super soft to the point where I can feel the ratchet pressing against my boots. I would prefer a more durable ankle strap, but these are a great value.

                          Solid construction. Very easy adjustable straps. Love the rubberized material used for the straps. Overall great performance for a multi-purpose intermediate boarder.

                            Great, strong, light bindings. Ease of entry could be better -- I was hoping they would be easier than my old Burton Freestyle bindings, but not much has really changed in the last 15 years. Was hoping for a miracle for this older man!

                                  I haven't gotten to ride them yet! There hasn't been enough snow in SE Idaho to take them up yet... But they're nice bindings! Good quality for the most part! I'm really interested in the Wedgie Footbeds, they seem very comfortable.

                                    These bindings are awesome! After years of riding I can finally say that I have found my favorite go to bindings. The Ride Ex provides a perfect balance of support and flex for the intermediate/advanced rider. These bindings secured the boot like no other with its ThinGrip Toe Straps and provide the most comfortable ride with their Wedgie 1.5 Footbed. The adjustability of these bindings allow you to find that perfect fit. You will truly feel one with the board as you shred down the mountain.

                                        Great product but my boot doesn't snugly fit all the way. The front of the boot can get stuck on the strap when you step in. It is hardly noticeable but after you strap in, the sides of the front strap kind of juts into the boots (Doesn't affect the ride). Probably won't happen to most boots but it did with mine...ThirtyTwo Lashed FT Fast Track Boots.

                                          This was the first pair of bindings I've purchased and they were easy to attach to my board. They're very sturdy with the feature to move the back for the best comfort.

                                            These are great basic bindings for the price. It has enough adjustability to get a good fit to your boot without being overly complicated. I have had issues in the past with the heal cup assembly and base plate coming loose but this is easily fixed with a small amount of thread lock.

                                                I was a little worried about the weight of the aluminum but it was not a factor. The bindings worked great and not too heavy. Very easy to release. Wondering how durable the Wedgie Pad is over time and cost to replace, but overall seems like like a good choice.

                                                  Good price for a good binding. I place the webbing for the toes over the front off my toes instead of on top of them to keep my foot pushed back

                                                  Love the aluminum baseplate and the wedgie pad. I have confidence and comfort when landing.

                                                  I got these bindings a while ago and I love them. They hold up and I got them for a good deal. I also love the company ride I have all my gear from them so I recommend getting ride snowboards, bindings, and boots. I usually ride park and these work great and I have recommended to a friend and he got them to and he loves him too so buy them before they run out.

                                                      Made of freakin metal--these aren't going to break anytime soon. The footbeds are great for a big guy, making my knees love me.
