Something is only as good as the foundation on which it is built. Since its inception, and to this day, Ride Bindings are constructed with aluminum to provide the best blend of lightweight durability. In fact, we’re so confident in the durability of our aluminum designs that Ride offers a Limited LIFETIME Warranty against bending or breakage of our Baseplates and Heelcups.*
And don't forget, not only are the heelcups and baseplates made from an estimated 50% recycled aluminum, but they are fully recyclable themselves.
