The Forum Keeper has been around for a little while now and is a good binding for the price. The Keeper has a nice flex under foot similar to the Burton Re:Flex bindings and it makes for a good freestyle ride for the price.
The 2013 Forum Keeper stepped it up a bit and added some of Forums higher end tech to the binding. It’s called “Good Vibes” which makes the flex under foot and all around feel of the binding much better than last year. This is very similar to Burton’s Re:Flex tech and this makes the Keeper a great entry to advanced level freestyle binding for the price.
The 2012 Keeper doesn’t have any crazy new tech like it’s male counterpart but it’s not a bad binding for the price. Is it the best out there? No. Do they perform well for the price? Yes.
