looks like something off the terminator

jondextan 03-18-2010 4:59 PM

this will make every board it's on look out-dated. sick bindings!

sippi 03-18-2010 6:02 PM

if somebody spends the ridiculous amount of money on them, post up here when that pretty chrome starts to chip and peel.

FreeRider209 03-18-2010 7:03 PM

But you get a free video with them.... HAHAHA

JDubs 03-18-2010 8:08 PM

yeah i don't see that holding up too long

mdaijogo 03-18-2010 8:15 PM

That is patent leather. It should last for a bit.

Good god those are ugly. They look the twisted cousins of the moon boots I had when I was 5.

devildog_ra 03-19-2010 7:51 AM

i heard that each one comes in a really cool case with a red bull and a copy of the parks doc......very cool

liquidforcefan 03-19-2010 8:30 AM

you could probably take them skiing too!

tsteeb 03-19-2010 10:53 AM

I think the regular ones look better, either way sick bindings

Here's a pic from Perfs Facebook. When you see them in person you'll be hard pressed not to say they really dam sweet.

They look a bit gimmicky to me, but thats just an opinion.

kkong72 03-19-2010 4:01 PM

That's ridiculous. i thought it was a joke that they came in the case with redbull and everything

cjh1669 03-19-2010 5:48 PM

If you put them on and click your heels together, you can get back to Kansas

norcalbordr 03-19-2010 6:32 PM

Pretty sick, I like

spridle 03-19-2010 9:23 PM

They look like they should have "The Pump" via 1987 in them.

THx for posting the photo up Gaucho.... When I was up in the factory last August, I saw the mockups for the boots / box / packaging....but the end product turned out really amazing. But more thank "looks", what I think people will like with this boot is the stiffness. The Relik has typically been a VERY soft boot...the Reflecto has alot more support and I think really will be something riders will like. Not that a Relik is bad in any way.....people who like to tweak / press....love the range of movement it offers....but for those who want the fit of a Relik...but with more guys...here it is. Congrats to Ronix...they really come through on these.....

id rock em fo sho if they were as stiff as my cells.

hockeysk8er222 03-20-2010 5:06 PM

I am in Middle School and I see these kids walking around in these shoes the go up to like their knees and the looks like those boots, I watch them walk by and I'm like "Wow, that is... stupid"

benjaminp 03-21-2010 8:42 AM

Love the Reflectos, if I had the money to burn I would grab a pair for my 08 Ibex, just to let the world know how much I love chrome. I already get blinded by my board while riding sometimes, so I might as well get blinded by my super shiny bindings too. And the James Bond style case just looks siiiiiiiiiiick.

xmcmillenx 03-21-2010 11:14 AM

i think they are gimmicky. But I think they are supposed to be at least a little bit. They are limiteds after all. Nice to see that Ronix had a little fun with them. On a side note, Ride snowboards used to have limited stuff when I worked in a shop and they were awesome but gimmicky. One year they looked like something straight out of a GWAR costume. The next year they pretty much looked like beer cans. If you are going to go limited, why not push it a little?

kyle_L 03-21-2010 3:27 PM

Drew, they are obviously completely gimmicky, but regardless, if you have the extra cash to throw around, that is one cool looking binding. It's crazy that they have the bindings down to 1.6 lbs though, it's like wearing nothing. The only issue is the lack of ankle support, but with all of the knee problems Parks has been having, the last thing he wants is a boot that sits high and tight around your ankle putting all of the stress on your knees. I'm pretty sure that I have convinced myself that this will be my next binding. I really hate my Soven's having the laces plus the two velcro pieces and how they are always in a slightly different spot each time I put them on.

bendow 03-22-2010 4:29 AM

Those would go perfectly with an 07 Obrien Natural

kyle_L 03-22-2010 4:16 PM

well i just put in my order yesterday from performance. i was in the market for new bindings and it was between these and the ones. being that they were only $70 more, i said screw it and went for them. pretty stoked, will post pics when they come in

mracrew 03-23-2010 9:18 AM

I saw these boots in person over the weekend and they are very well done, pictures do not do them justice at all. I would for sure spend the extra coin if I was gonna buy a pair of Relik's.
