Ride Revolt 2015 - 2011 Review by The Good Ride

Past Reviews

The Ride Revolt is a decent blend of price and performance.  It’s not quite a mind blowing experience but it’s not bad for the price point.

Days: 1
RidersJames, Peter
Boots: Burton Imperial, Nike Kaiju,
Boards: Ride Alter Ego

Flex: Like the Urethane in the high back.

Adjustability: Good adjustability and

Comfort: Felt good around the ankle but a bit pinchy on the side of the toes.  Other than that our boots fit in the binding pretty well.

Turn Initiation: Nice smooth turn initiation and it’s got good middle range turn initation that could work with a wide variety of boards.

Buttering: You know on the Alter Ego the tail was pretty soft being split and all so it was supper easy to butter and the nose had a lot of rocker but the binding seemed like it didn’t hinder the flex too much.

Boot Support: Nice support that isn’t going to lock you in but at the same time not leave your ankle exposed and feeling fragile like you are skating.

Ratchet System: It was ok.  Nothing great but nothing too questionable like the lower end Ride bindings.

Shock Absorption: Really solid shock absorption.  Not only are Ride boards damp but their bindings are pretty damp too.  I know I’ll be better off if I have to deal with a flat landing.  It happens to the best of us and no one wants to knuckle a jump but only a jackass would deny that he ever lands short or hits something natural into a bad flat transition.  Even if it doesn’t happen much its nice to have that cush underneath your joints.

So all in all it’s not a bad binding and you could do a lot worse. There are some we personally prefer more in this price range but we aren’t god on the throne. If these appeal to you then go for it.




Past Reviews

The 2012 is pretty much the same binding as 2011. 2011 had a big makeover so this is expected.  For 2013 and 2014 the High back added Urethane to make the flex softer.  The response is similar to the 2012 but there is more freedom of movement. Either binding is great

If you are on a budget, and are a fan of Ride bindings, these are good choice. You can take these anywhere from park to peak, but I would not recommend straight lining with these. You're probably going to want a little stiffer binding for anything above 40 MPH. I started off with some 2004 Ride SPI bindings, and rode these for a couple seasons because of my familiarity with Ride. Overall, a pretty good binding, especially for the price.

I bought these for my dad and ended taking them out a few days for myself. This binding held up very will and seemed to be very sturdy. The softer highback makes it a bit playful while the aluminum base plate keeps some support. After riding Union Forces, Burton Cartels, Malavitas, and Genesis bindings, I would give this a 3.5 out of 5. The canted foot bed is a big plus. Considering the cost and how solid the binding is as a whole, 4 stars. Great for that intermediate cruiser or jibber.

These bindings are extreme stylish. The slime-back is cosmetically unmatched and the flex it provides is outstanding. easy ratchet, versatile toe strap/cap strap. Easily the best bindings I've ever owned.
