I need new bindings I have cheap Hyperlite Spins that were on my board. The main problem is that as I try new stuff I crash harder and my feet sometimes come out of the bindings either all the way or part of the way. This really hurts my ankle not twisting but just bruising right on my talus on the inside of my ankle. I am pretty sure it chipped a piece of bone off because I can feel a piece moving around. I want a good binding that my feet are not going to come out of as easy. Thanks

I'll second the Ronix Ones...superlite weight, nice flex but not too flexible, and very comfortable.

Definitely Ronix... you can't go wrong with any of them. Go 09 or newer if you can. I like the locked in snowboard feel and went with the Cells this time around.

I have 09 Ronix cells and they are far and away the best boots I've had. Most comfortable, lightest and the best support of all the bindings I've owned. If you can, try one on and you'll see.

I use 2009 Ronix Kai closed toe bindings and would not trade them for anything!!!

Another vote for Ronix One's! They are the best boots I have ever owned hands down.

I guess I will look for Ronix 1 or other Ronix bindings. Lets take a poll: feet coming out or staying in the binding on hard crashes. I don't like my feet to come out because I have had the board swing around and almost scalp me when one foot came out and the other stayed in.

I like to stay strapped in unless it's a really, really bad impact. Came out of the Ones once or twice, haven't come out of the Cells yet but haven't taken a huge impact in them yet either.

Ronix 09 Cells & I prefer to stay in the binding.

Keep me in the bindings. I had one foot come out while throwing a tantrum a couple years ago and it snapped my ankle.

Back in April this year I took a big digger after landing in the flats. I stay in the bindings but fractured a few ribs and mild concussion. Hyperlite is coming out or already came out with a snow ski type boot/binding system that will release

So what year Ronix One bindings is everyone using? I see the White Elephants go for about $400 but you can get a pair of 08's for about $240.

Definitely go 09 or newer. There was a lot of new technology that was introduced in 09 models... baseless footbed, lighter weight baseplate, improved liners, no tools required for adjustment, plus many more small changes. I had the 08 Ones and while they were way ahead of their competition at the time, the 09s really pushed Ronix out in front of everyone else.

I went to the local wakeboarding shop and they said that they stopped carrying the Ronix bindings because they had too many warrenty claims. They tried to sell me the Liquid Force Watson 2011 model, said they were the best. I tried them on but even with them all the way tight I could still pull them off a little.

What a load of BS. At least you tried to support your local shop first.

As was mentioned before, 09 and newer Ronix Cells/Ones are some of, if not THE best boots going. The are very very light, very comfortable, have heat moldable liners, and look good too. Trying them on tells the whole story.

But the Watsons are very very good boots too.
