the guy below me is a complete idiot... i had these binding since the begining of the year and haven't had any wear on the latters. i have even had a couple of diggers to the face and one time straps came out a bit, but honestly no damage the latters.
the only thing that really comes loose is the top boot lacing on the kobalts, the the latters themselves don't come loose at all, unless you fall very very hard.
what i have really noticed compared to other bindings is that the systems toe strap really locks down on your toes, there is hardly any toe lift, the middle trap feels just like any other boot. so if the toe strap locks down on your toe how can there be wear on the straps? he clearly doesn't know how to wear them. and hey if you don't like them you can just use snowboard binding lattters and straps with a little bit of work done.
the only way i could possibly see his straps coming loose and wearing out is if he wears them extremely or over tightend...or wearing them on his toes which makes is loose. its suppose to be over on top of the toes, even though they adverist with them on the the toe, it should be over the toe. i wear mine with the toe strap tight over my toes and the top sug.

Let's put it this way, Hyperlite bindings are trying to carve out a proprietry setup just like everyone else (Burton comes to mind). With that said this binding on a wakeboard does not even come close to the security of how a snowboard binding works from these aspects:

HYPERLITE SYSTEM BINDINGS...
- Come loose VERY easily

- Ladder straps slip due to poorly developed cranks (lots of space for them to angle and slip)

- Ladder strap plastic is the worst I have ever seen. 20 sets and I had to replace all 4 straps, got 4 new ones and 10 sets later they are getting close to completely worn where I can't even get them tight. I am so cautious of strapping in and being extra careful not to wear the ladder strap teeth, but it doesn't matter what I do because even while riding the flexing from toe to heel causes so much wear and tear on these straps it is only a matter of time before your binding/boot setup is useless.

I have been snowboarding all my life and have never seen a snowboard ladder strap or bindings do what these cheap hyperlite bindings have done.

Beware of the Hyperlite bindings; however their boards are great, and their boots are comfy, but that doesn't really matter if they do not hold to the board.

For the best bindings my vote goes to Ronix.

      I ride 4-5 times a week doing approX 5 sets at a time. After 2.5 months of riding toe straps have stripped out. Replaced with new ones and already stripped them out again. Toe strap does not stay on toe and dips when cutting. The response in edging is fantastic. Hard to get a secure feeling.

            Comments about Hyperlite System Wakeboard Bindings 2012:

            These bindings are heavy. Each binding and boot set-up weighs 3.5 lbs. So you're adding 7 lbs with both. I'm not sure how much other bindings weigh but my Ronix Kai's feel like about a third of the weight. The weight slows me down, making these bindings not worth it EXCEPT for in cold weather. In that case, they are super clutch, and keep my feet warm and protected. I'll always have a pair of these for the cold months, but will go with a lighter pair of CT Liquid Force's for the rest of the year.

              Comments about Hyperlite System Wakeboard Bindings 2012:

              the best part of this product is that you can put your boots on before your set and be ready to jump in water quickly with out holding everyone up while you put on your board and get all laced up. It is also great if you have buddies that ride the same system so you can try out other boards and still have your own boots. I have read people hazing the ratchets and straps, compairing them to snow board stuff. but the straps are a wear item even on snow boards and most of the time either is damaged by over tightening. they have also said that Burton straps are better as an avid Burton guy I would say your logic is flawed the Burton straps seam better as plastic is way harder when its 10 below zero then when you are rocking simlar materials at 80 plus at the lake

              the other great thing is when your set is done they are way easy to take off in the water, you have to fight to get your foot out of any decent binding on the market
              give them a try they a great way to go

              I love the way these ride. Crazy responsive. HOWEVER, my very first set in them I popped a notch on the strap. Very annoying and makes me question the quality. Now I have to go through the hassel of getting a new strap.

                        Systembindings my favorite from When I'm on the boat or getting pull behind the cable I wouldn't want anything Else. It's so fast to get ready.. And when ur at the cable and you have to do the long walks back to the system 2 there are rocks and stuff but I have the boots for the systembindings which I don't feel a thing... If ur looking to buy binding this is the way to go and if ur also a snowboarder like me You be really familiar with the system....

                        Overall I like the system bindings. They are extremely responsive when engaging edges. The bindings are easy to get in and out of and make the entire setup feel lighter. Sometimes the toes strap will come loose during riding. It's best to double or triple check the straps to make sure they are as tight as possible.

                            I love everything about these bindings except the toe strap on my left foot. I got the 2011 ones so they go over and around my toes. The ladders slip a bit some times and then some times they are super secure. Not really sure what the deal is, but overall well worth the money and some FANTASTIC bindings!

                              Being December in Ohio, I haven't had a chance to really give this new binding system a try, but I expect them to be a game changer in the way I attack the wake. I expect the easy release will make me less tentative...I wouldn't expect to twist my knee around in these. Can't wait to try them.

                              Only rated them a 4-star as I've yet to get out on them. The quality is superb and service from Evo.com was outstanding.

                                      Great bindings, the upgraded toe straps really improve upon the design. Love the system bindings and the response you get from riding with them.

                                            The binding are easy to put on. Being that this was received as a Christmas Gift, have not been able to use them yet. Did put them on the board and strap myself in. Felt great and cannot wait to get on the water with them?
