eh, ive got the Ronix one bindings, and everytime i leave that thing in my car after i ride it smells like crap, i suggest to take it out after every ride..or toss it in the truck bed..but from my experiences it does stink when you put them in the car when done riding..

i let mine dry out but they still smell a lil funky. they dont smell so bad to where you cant stand to be around them but if you actually smell the insede of the boot, it does get a lil musty

They have to have some air flow. set them on your air vents at home so that the air is blowing in them, they should be dry by morning with out the stink

The ones get funky!!! On the plus side, you won't grind your toes off on a weird slider fall.

my Ronix Cells got funky too same as the ones. I had Shanes last year and they never smelled. I will be trying the 08 cells this year and if they smell again i'll be switching.

I had the 07 ONE's and they started to stink pretty bad, I actually started to stuff bounce fabric softner sheets into the boot to cover the smell cuz I leave my board in the house. I now have the RELIKS, we'll see what happens with these.

My Ronix 1s started-out ok, but then I used them in salt water, pretty much put them right into a board bag,
and then that board bag was locked in a hot closed van. When I took them out the next day, OMG! They
reeked like cat spray! I've washed them in the tub with soap and baking soda, I only use them in fresh water,
and I always leave them outside to dry, but I still can't totally get rid of that funk. Nasty nasty nasty.

I would agree on the Ronix boots. But I ride on the Delta. The water isn't exactly clean and pure.

No prob. The key to havin non-assmelling boots, vests...all that stuff, is bein dry. Might be just me but i've noticed that the shane's dry REALLY quick. after a set they are dry in like 15 mins.
