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. The Urethane in the Slimeback™ Highback provides a smooth ride and allows for maximum lateral mobility. The C-Series Performance Chassis pairs an aluminum heelcup with a glass filled nylon base tray. The aluminum heelcup 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
Did you break something on your RIDE bindings? Just looking for some spare parts? Making a franken-binding? We got what you need. Not sure which part you need?
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.
CARBON SLIMEBACK HIGHBACK:
Made from laminated carbon and urethane, this unique highback offers the lightweight support and pop of carbon with the smooth dampened ride of urethane.
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.
Designed to improve ladder durability and eliminate ratchet wag, resulting in a smoother user experience with the same hold you expect.
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:
An extra cush EVA Basepad that wraps under the binding and up the sides to damp out vibrations and make for a smooth ride.
The plastic disc offers more lateral flex than aluminum for the rider that is focused on comfort and flex over hard charging performance
RIDE BINDING TECHNOLOGY:
We didn’t set out to reinvent the binding—we set out to perfect it.
