The Ride C-10 packs all the bells and whistles of the A-10 Bindings but has slightly different construction materials in the base tray. The Ride C-10 has is made of composite materials while the A-10 is constructed from Aluminum.
Personally, I love a solid aluminum base, but I would love to shred in a pair of these. Ride has combined some composites with an aluminum heel cup and it looks extraordinary.
I remember a few years back thinking they couldn’t do better than my pair of Capos, but I’ll consider that to be the naivety of youth.

- Highback: Carbon Slimeback
- Ankle Straps: 3 Piece Ankle Straps For Increased Comfort And To Lock In Feel

Ride C-10 Specs:
- C-Series Chassis: Aluminum And Composite Tray Combined For Maximum Comfort And Feel
- Aluminum: Heel Cup Helps Stay Locked In
- Response: Damp and less responsive than aluminum
- Flex Properties: Significant changes due to changes in building materials.
I’d say the biggest difference between the A-10 and the C-10 is the building materials. Composite materials give slightly less response. Which isn’t a bad thing if that’s your preference or you want to do some park riding. I’d say give them a try and see if you like them.
A big thing to remember when jumping onto these or any new bindings is to take it easy until you have a feel for them. Don’t hyperextend your back as I did a few years back.
