Cinch cable slips and breaks

By Mark

About Me Intermediate

Pros

  • Easy Entry & Release

Cons

  • Clumsy
  • Poor Construction

Best Uses

    Comments about K2 Snow Cinch CTS:

    Great concept, but poor execution.
    The easy entry would be great if the cinch cables didn't continuously slip, needing readjustment almost every time.

    Cinch cable broke completely after less than 30 days total use over 2 seasons.
    And can I get hold of K2 customer service to get a replacement cinch cable? No, so I'm chucking these and going back to old fashioned bindings.

    Avoid.

    Comments about K2 Snow Cinch CTS:

    Day 1 and 2 I gave up on these bindings as a joke and I'd been ripped off of a too good to be true system, clipping in and out the old school way to the laughter of friends on the mountain.

    A little patience and day 3 onwards after talking to the shop I purchased them from and I started to get it. Day 4 and from now on I can either pop into them on the lift as we are away and board straight off the lift or depending on the lift exit, jump in at the top of the run while standing no issues at all.

    Really, it is just a system of figuring out the right way to step in and out. clearing the bindings of snow and ice before you get in and out is handy too. But yes, just find the right way to step into them, I found pulling the top strap up and around a bit made easy entry. I then just slide in and toe against the end strap and pull the back tab up...board away.

    I will say, prior to pushing off on each run like all bindings I double check my click adjustment bindings to have the right tightness as all bindings, I find adjust and move as you go. Again once in, a little bunny hop or just board a few feet and double check the clips to the right tightness is so much faster than the old way.

    If the shop you bought them from can't show you how to correctly get in and out of them, you are at the wrong place. Mine did show me but I just didn't listen. Once I did...yeah gold. Hot tip though, they are almost impossible to step into while sitting down...it does not work that way and they are not engineered that way. dig a little channel for the board with the board like a flat area so you don't slide (if you can't step in on the move) and persist with it. Once you get it, its easy.

    I would say, I'd have liked a few parts to be metal on the bindings for extra strength. I just feel its a little flimsy but still works fine. They have done a full time season and work and look just as new. When you get home after your weekend away, wash them and maintain them. Like everything, if you take care of it, it will last. I have found car interior non acidic polish works well along with a spray wax to seal them for storage.
