The Ride Revolt Snowboard Binding is a freestyle binding with great connectivity and an awesome feel. The ratchets and straps are high quality, and the binding itself is excellently manufactured. All in all, Ride makes extremely high quality bindings. They’ve never steered me wrong, and the revolt is no exception.
I can’t be 100% positive though. If weight is an issue the bindings have an aluminum base so they will be heavier than other brands. However in my opinion this balances them out with durability. I think it’s a good trade off.
For snowboards they would pair well with a GNU Hyper Kyarve especially if you’re into back country shredding. For All Mountain Riding, you’ll probably want another style of snowboard. Maybe a GNU Riders Choice, or even the GNU Billy Goat. (I really like GNU too)

These bindings give a great feel, they’re comfortable and you feel locked in. When you step into these you’ll find yourself in something that’s on the stiffer side. But you’ll they’ll give you great response and control. Pair that up with the Ride Wedgie system (Comfort for the feet…not a bullies way of saying hi) and you’ve got a comfortable ride. In addition to that, you’ll feel completely dialed in.

Personally, I want to add a pair of these into my rotation. The Ride Bindings are great in the back country and when I go out to Colorado and Montana and it’s a great way to switch things up. I could use some stiffer bindings doing some tree riding, and the setup will be similar to my current one.
I’m sure they’ll take a little getting used to considering I usually ride in a pair of capos but not a lot. Park riding isn’t impossible in these, however the stiffness of the bindings will take some time to get used to (if you ride softer bindings anyway). The extra response could cause some issues when you’re trying to hit a rail or box, but this also depends on the rider. Just be cautious.
