The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Ride A-8 is a perfect do-it-all binding for the aggressive rider. They are lightweight, thanks to the cutouts in the high back and the aluminum series chassis that is so popular from Ride. I have ridden the aluminum series from Ride multiple times over the past decade. I am always impressed by their low weight and highly adjustable platform. My shoe size is 10.5, which puts me in the M/L category. The adjustable chassis allows me to get the binding length just perfect:) The A-8 binding is built stiff (8/10), so it really helps to lock in heel edges. I find it to be a very poppy binding in the park, hard-charging on the groomers, and ready for whatever in the backcountry. Ride also does a great job with the canted footbeds to help reduce fatigue on Knees and MCLs. I really like the way that Ride builds their ankle straps to be reversible. The ability to flip it and make it stiff, or flip it and make it soft, is a really nice touch. It points out how Ride actually pays attention to its end user and wants to create features that help push the industry forward. The A-8 is lightweight, stiff, comfortable, adjustable, and ready for whatever. I would highly recommend this binding to anyone who wants a little more out of their current setup.

Ideal for
  • A lightweight binding that is also responsive.
  • Great for aggressive riders who want something on the stiffer side.
  • Good adjustability for different feet/boot shapes and sizes.
Not ideal for
  • I wish Ride made an orange or red color.
  • High backs could use a little more padding.

The Ride A-8 Snowboard Bindings are the perfect choice for advanced riders seeking all-mountain performance. These bindings are designed to be precise and aggressive, providing the rider with maximum control and power transfer. The Reversible Ankle Strap allows for two riding positions, giving you the flexibility to choose between a more aggressive feel or increased lateral movement. The A-Series aluminum chassis provides reactive flex while reducing rigidity compared to previous designs. The cored nylon highback reduces weight while still delivering a responsive ride, and the canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle for improved leverage over your board's tip and tail.

Key Features:

  • Reversible Ankle Strap provides two riding positions.
  • A-Series aluminum chassis delivers reactive flex with less rigidity.
  • Cored nylon highback reduces weight while maintaining responsiveness.
  • Canted footbed aligns joints at 2.5 degree angle for improved leverage.
  • Integrated rubber PODS provide smoother ride.

I had an absolutely amazing experience with Edward! Going in to buying skis I had no idea what to look for and super anxious about finding the perfect skis. He gave me great recommendations and guided me every step of the way. Super attentive and overall a great resource! If you are paired with Edward you’re in great hands! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you, Edward for everything! You truly made the experience amazing for me from offering recommendations, answering questions, and supporting me throughout the process! You’re the best!!!

This guy will answer as many questions as you can throw his way- even if you ask the same question 5 different ways. NEVER felt like he got annoyed with me. Super knowledgeable and if he didn't know the exact right answer he said he'd find out and did quickly. I don't expect anyone to know everything, and I respect when someone can admit it and know where to find it. I'm still asking him questions even after my purchase lolHighly Recommended!!! Thanks Brenden.

Josh helped me figure out exactly what it is that I needed. Ive been a skateboarder for 20+ years and he has helped me transition to snowboarding by guiding me into the direction that most fits a person with heavy skateboarding background. He explained the gear and everything. He listened to my story and helped me define a setup from just that information.

I am truly grateful for the time Daniela spent taking care of my many questions as I decided on equipment for skiing. There are so many measurements to deal with (Daniela mentioned ones I didn’t even know I needed to know) it was frustrating. She held my hand, and I’m confident I have something for my skill level. There are settings I know I will need some pro help on like DIN settings. I’m looking forward to hitting the slopes with my new gear. Thanks Daniela!

Jarom was responsive and understanding. He made sure he understood what I was looking for, and helped explain what he thought would be a good fit. When I approached him with another Ski, he was quick to assure me that it was a good ski, but also why he thought the one he chose would be a better fit. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience

I was in the market for a new snowboard and bindings for the 2024 season. I have had the same set up for about 10 years now and was ready to invest in a solid set up. I filled out the Curated questionnaire and was lucky to land Dave as my Curated expert. I chatted it up with Dave on what I like to do on the mountains and within 20 min I received his recommended line up of boards and bindings. Dave took the time to provide a detailed description for each board/bindings along with a personalize video as well which was so cool! Literally feel like I’m friends with the guy now, ha! I ended up going with the T. Rice Pro with the Union Falcor bindings. PUMPED for the 2024 season to rip it on my new setup! Dave is the man 🤙🏼

I came onto this website not sure what to expect, and I'm walking away with a new pair of skis and bindings that I am confident will work great for me. Hayden was super knowledgable on the many types of skis and helped me with the many many questions I had for him. He was also super fun and light hearted which made my buying experience that much better. I will definitely be recommending Hayden and this website to others looking to buy skis, and will appreciate all he did for me :)
