Comments about K2 Snow Cinch CTC:

I'm a gear junkie (3 sets of skis & 2 boards). I prefer to board in powder/crud & ski on groomers. In the inevitable race to the powder at any resort, the K2™ CTC™ will give you a slight head start. I only use these bindings on my 166 on big pow days. The bindings are very comfy paired with my Ride™ boots for all day comfort and easy on/off. They're not for everyone: not super tight or adjustable like a higher-end strap binding. The advantage over the Flow™ binding is the pivoting action of the strap, allowing a slightly more snug fit without having to kick your foot forward into the strap; however, some new Flow™ models have a similar pivot in the design, so go shopping and compare. We are very lucky to live in an era when this much engineering, design, & choice are incorporated into leisure products.

Comments about K2 Snow Cinch CTC:

Graduated from Flow Bindings and into the Cinch system. The articulating footcage and toe strap made this a superior choice over my old Flow Bindings with faster entry especially when your binding is full of snow and better edge control from the added toe strap. The only thing i would consider loosing was the durability and solidness of my old Flow. There's a bit of play even after tightening up all of the bolts on the K2.

I am an older guy of 45 and about 5'6". It's great for me since i can slide off the lift, cram my foot in, and latch the back in one fell swoop. I've gotten it down where i can latch this even while riding down on a slight grade and moving at a slow clip. Not having to stop, sit down, and get back up has been fantastic. You do need to have enough flexibility to reach down and behind your ankle to activate the lock lever while standing to really enjoy this binding.

I've had my CTCs for 4 seasons now. The wear has started to show. The foam cushioning on the high back has worn down to the plastic. The teeth on the straps have worn to a point where they sometimes pop out now. I was in Colorado last season when one of the straps popped and i wound up in the shrubbery not being able to exit out of a turn.

It would be nice if K2 provided a tune-up replacement kit to overhaul these things.

Unless someone comes out with a better rear entry pop in/out binding, i'll replace this with another pair of Cinches.
