Bindings hit their high point about fi ve years ago and truth be told, they haven’t gotten much better since. This is a good thing, since an affordable pair, like the Jade for instance, is basically a high-end model from a few years back. Upgraded with a women’s specific high back and contact pad interface, the boot to binding connection on these is seamless, allowing for progression, not frustration. And with a Super MFG ankle strap and surround toe strap linked to a solid Delta light baseplate, what more do you need? Performance, comfort, quality… your bases are covered here.
