    Comments about K2 Snowboards Cinch CTX:

    There is a lot to like about this binding. It is convenient and fast. Out of my group of boarders, I am always the first one ready to go. I also really like how the ankle strap lifts up when you lower the back giving more room for entry. The straps are comfortable. The binding is pretty stiff, which I prefer The weight is not bad either.
    The ratchets do need some work though. They tighten well enough. To loosen, the ratchets are sticky and need effort. I was told that this was intentional as the ratchets should be set and left alone. I think this should go back to the drawing board. I also found that the toe strap is often cinched down by accidental contact when my foot was not in. I keep having to loosen it which takes effort because of the aforementioned reason. A locking ratchet like on the Gnu Mutant would work well. This "sticky" design seems significantly inferior to the Gnu design.
    Otherwise, works well overall.

        Comments about K2 Snowboards Cinch CTX:

        These bindings have been great for me as i was always last to have strapped up. Having read many mixed reviews which stated the binding either don't work or give you sore forearms (which i have had in the past) it comes down to one thing.... seating your foot properly in the binding before flicking the rachet. Once you realise this they're a breeze to use. I dig my toe edge into the slope and strap in while standing and now wait for everyone else :-) Would defo recommend these and my mates, who all said i was mad and should get traditional straps, now wonder why they all have to put up with a cold, wet, rear ends!

          Comments about K2 Snowboards Cinch CTX:

          I really like the rear entry but with that you clearly sacrifice all responsiveness that you get out of any ratchet binding. The wire on the back has snapped on me a couple times and the latches on the opposite side of the ratchets pop open all the time. The strap on the side of the latches also slides up the strap because the ridges are not big enough or rugged enough. When you take a fall any and all snow at your feet will get into the ratchets and keep the lock on the strap away from the strap. This was the third pair of K2 bindings that I've had and all have been awful along with their boots. My advice is that unless you go really easy on your equipment or just looking for something that's really expensive and bad in performance don't go with K2.
