I've only had one day on the snow in these bindings, so these are my initial thoughts...at first, they are a little tight to maneuver. I'm still having trouble shoving my boots into the bindings from the back, so I had to put them on the traditional way, using the ratchets. As far as riding, these are very comfortable, my ride was smooth, and the combo of these with my Spotlite made for some smooth sailing. I'm hoping, with more use, they'll loosen up a bit. They seem sturdy and well made.
I'm an advanced snowboarder, primarily freestlye. I ride powder, glades, boulderfields, and moguls. I don't ride park. I was disappointed with these bindings--I have them in white, and after only 3 seasons of moderate use (and being stored indoors) they're yellowed and the plastic is cracking. I strap in on the lift, and they work pretty well for ease of entry. They're relatively adjustable, but not as secure as I'd like in mixed conditions. I'm disappointed to have to upgrade so soon, but I'm ready for something that truly marries quality with concept.
