Anyone know when the new O'Brien bindings are being released? I'm real curious to see the Naturals and/or Vices. Thanks.

There should be some press on them soon, sorry I cannot say more yet. Its an amazing concept. Hold tight I promise it will be worth it.

I've ridden/tried on just about every binding on the market. I'm very picky about my footwear. O'Brien bindings are Comfortable & Durable, 'nuff said...tell yer friendz

OK, I'll save my money and wait. Sometime this spring I hope. I don't know how long I can go on my current set.

I too agree that it will be worth the wait. It says something about Obrien that they want to get something completely right before it's released.

Looking forward to when they're available.

My Fuses cut off the circulation to my feet...
so I can't wait all summer, but I'm a big fan of Obrien. I hope they come out soon!

nice, agreed, very nice.
i will have to say that of all the wake companies, obrien has stepped up the most. these boots are not just simple adjustments by any means, from base plate to liners. good job. i'll have to give them a try even though i got my D2's and will probably stay with those ;)

Yeah they look awesome, not too bad on price either...If i hadn't just bought some cells I would probably hook a pair of those up....

Andy, Can you give any details on these yet?
Old    J Jakober (jjakober)      Join Date: Apr 2002       02-18-2008, 6:21 PM Reply   
All that can really be said right now is that those are not the final product

Is all of that information accurate?

Those are not actually for sale, I have no idea why they are on that site.
Old    J Jakober (jjakober)      Join Date: Apr 2002       02-18-2008, 7:42 PM Reply   
The information on the site is pretty accurate, it's just the look of the boots that is not finalized.
Old    Jeremy Byrom (wakerider111)      Join Date: Jul 2006       02-19-2008, 11:03 AM Reply   
good grief... and same with the local and r5 too (not completely finalized yet). as someone has said once before, it is nice to know obrien is making sure all is perfect before releasing and not being pushed by impatientness which i admit i have some. i just love learning about the new stuff and technologies. it fascinates me.

Nintzel...
I figured you might know already, lol, but I'm kinda impatient...do you atleast know the date when you are aloud to talk about it? hahah

and would it be safe to order bindings off of www.beyondwatersports.com ?

I've got a bridge you might be interested in

I'm not Nintzel, but I wouldn't order something from someone that is advertising something that isn't available yet
Old    Emory Allen (ega6)      Join Date: Oct 2007       02-21-2008, 7:04 PM Reply   
man that is the site connected to wakeworld, finished product or not I'd be pretty sure it's a legit site.....if nintzel says they're not released yet you may get some "back-ordered" stuff or something.......just my thoughts though

I'm not knocking the site, I just think they may have gotten the cart ahead of the horse

It is nice to see the prices under $300. I have seen a lot of boots go above that. Good for obrien to try and keep the costs down a little bit.

Everything will be out on the market soon, I will have a R5 in my hands before March, I will shred it and tell everyone all about it with tons of pics to go along with it. We are making sure everything is perfect. How many times have people seen products hit the market and become a warranty nightmare, because something minor was overlooked. This is new technology, a new way of thinking, we have to make sure its perfect when itís released, not a work in progress just to get something on the market.
