I just ordered the new parks bindings and I was wondering if they are comftorbale and easy to get in. Thanks

the 04's are easy to get into most of the time. if you are on the platform you are gonna need some lube though. once in the water though, they are a cinch to put back on if the come off in a fall. i think that they are super comfy, although after long rides my feet try to go to sleep on me...that could just be bad circulation on my part though. you should be good to go with the 05's, overall it's the same boot but with a new look.

I don't have these but I tried them on at a shop. They are awesome. Very comfortable. you'll need a little soap to get in but not hard at all

the 05's are nice, they added rollers everywhere the lace goes through to make it easier to tighten. Just use them alot to break them in then they are way easier to get on.

gotta love how people order something THEN ask if they are comfortable and easy to use??????? <BR> <BR>Really I'm not trying to be an ass just wondering why this happens so much on this board?

I had the 04s and hated them. Sold them. Then bought LF Transits... and now I am loving the change.

Just received the 05's last week. Only have about 1/2 hour on them, and I love them so far. A little tight, but after the they break in, I'm sure they will be just fine.

I find them comfortable and foregiving. Mike Schwenne is currently riding them without the upper strap. He is super picky about his bindings so that says a lot when he can ride them and still tweak out his moves.

GREAT!!!!whole famly has um...

I also bought '04 Parks based on a friend's recommendation, and hated them with a passion. <BR> <BR>A pain to get in, tighten, and major pain to get off. Comfortable once in them, I'll give you that, but that's it. <BR> <BR>I have some CWB Boss now I like MUCH better in every way. Just one opinion.

I had a pair and I think that THEY SUCK!!!!!!!

i had 03 belmonts and i love the foot bed but that was it. <BR> <BR>then ordered the 05 parks, when i first got them i hated them, they were so freaking tight, my ankle was in pain the whole ride. but then i put them in a hot bath and broke them in the easy way. and i love them now, they are like wearing socks around the house. awesome support and keep you in there good. i went back to the belmonts and they were just horrible compared to the parks.

Jason: <BR>I thought Mike rode Collective Development boots?

drewsky24 06-14-2005 5:35 PM

The Teams are the best best the best bindings ever!!!!!

I've ridden the Parks bindings since 02 and love them. I had 02s, 03s and now 05s. I didn't like the Belmonts or Byerlys. To me, they are very easy to get in and out of. I wear size 11 shoe and my bindings are XLs. They hold good and only come off when they need to. I've heard they are going to change them a lot in 06?

gruelie 06-14-2005 10:49 PM

They aren't hard to get into at all compared to the Ultra's I've got.

buffalow 06-15-2005 12:00 PM

Mike Schwenne switched when he signed with Hyperlite a few months ago. He is rocking the 3DS DNA with the Parks without the upper strap. <BR> <BR>Those of you that say they are too tigt, need to loosen up the strings in the areas that they are too tight. These are one of he most adjustable bindings ever. I sell a ton of these and have never had a pair come back with a complaint. <BR> <BR>The LF teams are also pretty sick..

drewsky24 06-15-2005 12:33 PM

Heck yes, the Team's are flippin sweet.
