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.

Sarah was fantastic!
5 /5
The board I wanted wasn’t available so Sarah quickly put together a list of boards that were similar to the one I wanted. She gave me the best recommendations to ride that hard pack on the East Coast. She was very helpful in the whole cancellation process and made the experience better! Definitely recommend her to anyone looking for some new gear!

Before this, I had never purchased skis in my life and felt overwhelmed when I first looked into buying a pair. Riley gave amazing recommendations based on what I was looking for and found the best options and deals. He was easy to talk to and made finding my first pair of skis much easier. Thank you!

Setting Leo apart was his diligence in learning exactly what product was best for ME. Not the best selling, not the best price, but the best FIT and long term value. He did a lot of work and research, asked the right questions, and walked me through the entire process over several days. Top notch expertise service!

As a first timer trying to figure out my new snowboarding fit and gear, I was lost and didn’t have the time or heart to figure it out. Here comes Bobby, he walked me through the whole process down to tech specs, best fit for purpose and skill level, and most importantly the sickest look I could’ve ever put together. Very grateful for the experience and hats off to Bobby 🤙🏾

Elizabeth made life so much easier!
5 /5
I was hesitant to use this website and service thinking it was going to be more of a sales pitch platform but boy was I wrong! Not having a clue on what to purchase for my two kids and for myself, Elizabeth made a stressful, overwhelming experience EASY. I answered basic questions, gave her my budget and she recommended 1-3 options for me to choose from! Ordering three sets of skis, boots and poles would have taken me months to determine “the right ones” but with Elizabeth I ordered all three packages in one evening, at great discount prices and will be here in time for Christmas to put huge smiles on my children’s faces. I highly recommend this service, more companies should do what Curated does! Thanks again Elizabeth 🖤

Matthew was super helpful. He asked a lot of questions and provided incredibly valuable insight. He made the entire process stress-free. Without his help it would have taken hours of research to figure out which skis to buy for my son. This was a great experience. Matthew went above and beyond to help me find the perfect skis.
