The C-8 is an entirely new direction for Ride. We set out to design the smoothest riding binding in the world and the C-8 did not disappoint. We took what we learned with LTD model and perfected it. If you demand a high performance binding and want to eliminate high speed vibrations you feel with other bindings, this is the binding for you.
The Urethane in the Slimeback™ Highback provides a smooth ride and allows for maximum lateral mobility. The C-Series Performance Chassis pairs an aluminum heel cup with a glass filled nylon base tray. The aluminum heel cup provides the feel and durability of aluminum where you need it while the composite tray offers a damp and responsive ride.
The Reversible Ankle Strap provides two riding positions. Ride with the stiff part of the strap on the top for a more aggressive feel or swap the straps so the soft part is on top for more flexibility and lateral movement.
The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board. Integrated rubber pods make for an even smoother ride. The C-8 is designed for high end performance.
C - SERIES: C-Series Chassis is built with the forged aluminum heel-cup (same new part as A-Series) bonded with a state of the art composite tray. This is for the customers that prefer the feel of plastic (customers currently relegated to use competitor bindings). Performance of aluminum heelcup, Power transfer, Perfect fit (toe/heel centering), Durability, Feel of composite tray, Damp and less reactive than aluminum, Different flex properties than aluminum, Different composite compounds for different models
C-SERIES PERFORMANCE CHASSIS:
The C-Series Performance Chassis is the same Chassis as the standard C-Series chassis, but with 20% short-glass injected into a nylon tray. Injected short-glass makes the chassis more responsive while the nylon composite provides a smooth ride.
CANTED WITH PODS FOOTBED:
An ultra-light footbed that uses subtle angles to align the ankles and knees to a more natural and comfortable position. The angle also gives leverage to press the board for huge pop, without affecting your preferred stance width. Urethane pods are bonded to the footbed under the heels and forefront of the riders foot. These pods absorb high speed vibrations for a smoother ride as well as smooth out larger impacts from flat landings.
C-SERIES EVA BASEPAD:
MINIMALIST WITH OVERMOLD TOE STRAP:
The minimalist toe strap with overmold is the same base strap as the minimalist toe strap with the addition of an overmolded layer of urethane that assures the strap stays in place over the riders desired position over the boot.
The Aluminum disc is more rigid than the plastic disc. This disc is suited for the rider demanding precision in their binding.
The plastic disc offers more lateral flex than aluminum for the rider that is focused on comfort and flex over hard charging performance
Highbacks utilize urethane similar to our Slimewalls™ technology. The Slimeback™ material absorbs shock and damps vibrations to help smooth the ride while providing fluid support.
Designed to improve ladder durability and eliminate ratchet wag, resulting in a smoother user experience with the same hold you expect.
Designed to be worn in two positions: one for hard charging, performance and the other for a more relaxed feel that lets you really lean into your ride. Utilizes a strong upper and a soft flexible lower portion to support all of your riding needs.
