Solid option for intermediates.

"I thought these bindings were decent. I have a size 8.5 boot so I rode the mediums which fit my foot perfectly. Cool colors/graphics, comfortable baseplate and highbacks which were easy to adjust. The only issue I had was adjusting the straps on the fly to properly fit my boot. I struggled a bit mid mountain to adjust the toe strap in my preferred position, for some reason the strap just didn't want to move... But regardless, I'd still recommend these to an intermediate rider looking to step up from softer bindings for more responsiveness.”

Swiss Army Binders!

“I am 6ft 185lbs with a size 10.5 boot and I've been riding for 21 years. I was able to test these bindings in a medium on the Lib Rig on a hardpack groomer day. My 10.5 fit into the medium perfectly, I always try to go with the tightest binding I can, I would recommend a large for size 11 and up though. What more could you want in a pair of bindings than what the Transfers have to offer? Their boot huggin highbacks are comfortable and supportive and come in some great colors this season! The Drive Plate gives you quick edge to edge initiation without feeling too rocky and can still flat base for jibs. This can also help a wider board feel more lively since you can apply pressure to your edge quicker. The straps fit perfectly and were easy to adjust and the buckles are solid as ever. I've ridden these from the backcountry to the park and they just keep asking for more! Put these on any board and enjoy the ride!”
