Drake Bindings 2010-2011

04 Jun, 2010


For 10-11, Drake did a total overhaul and revamp on their bindings.  For technology they have the contact pad a solid EVA pad that covers the base of the binding from toe to heel, biomapping the hiback to be specifically engineered to correspond calf and leg movement to contour perfectly that ensures correct natural stance, ultra thin strap which are straps designed to function on the bare essentials of minimum fabric but maximum support.  In additon, Drake offers the ultimate disc which offers every possible board-binding mounting pattern found in just one disc (4×4, 3-hole, channel) to accommodate Drake bindings.

    No Canted foot bed in the Drake lineup for the crasy wide duck stance man? 😉
    Well, for 2011 with Canted foot bed, I will have to look at: 390 Boss, K2 or Ride Optimo 😉

    How do the new Super Sports compare to the Rome 390 Boss?

    Hi Jon K,
    In my opinion, the Super Sport is stiffer than the Rome 390 Boss, with a bit less feeling in the base plate… I road before the Drake Mentor (green one) 2 years ago and regardless of the good fit on strap, the Mentor was way too stiff for me without any feeling on the base plate (Mentor is a pure freeride bindings) for charging… The super sport is in between the Mentor and the Fifty… but in my opinion still too stiff and less feeling than the 390. 390 Boss with the Canted base plate this year is a serious binding for sure… a bit heavier than the K2 Canted (Auto or Formula) and Ride but still a good value and 100 days top proof bindings
    Correct me Shay if you know!
    Thanks

    Mervin, I’m glad you answered because I’ve only ridden the rome 390 boss so can’t compare.
