Salomon District 2017 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Salomon District is another Good Ride Favorite. Take the Hologram base plate and put in a softer high back for a softer less responsive ride.  This rubber and kevlar heel loop looks like it wouldn’t work but it sure does.  Heel to toe the response is smooth but predictable and just a little less responsive than the Hologram.

The 2013 to 2015 Salomon District are all pretty much the same binding with the same ride.

Boards: Jones Mountain TwinNever Summer Proto

Flex: The District is pretty soft but it’s not a noodle. There is a nice freestyle flex going on here.

Adjustability: Salomon’s Shadow Tech bindings have exceptional adjustability.  You can dial it out for just about any boot and also it’s very easy to do so.

Comfort: We love everything about these bindings except for the ankle strap doesn’t feel as comfortable as other bindings we have tried.  If there is one thing to work on it’s how the ankle strap contours to your boot. It’s still not terrible but some might not like the way it fits. The Toe straps though are some of the best we have tried and the heel loop wraps around the boot really well.

Heel-Toe Response: You would think that a soft heel loop like this wouldn’t be responsive when it comes to turning the board but it’s just the same as many harder heel loops with the same high back flex. It’s still not super responsive but it’s made to work with easier turning board.

Tip-Tail Response: These bindings have some reduced dead spot going on and they feel pretty easy to butter and press with. Also a lot of the bindings base plate is pretty soft so the board flexes pretty well after the disc under foot.  It feels like it borders on great and it’s pretty close to some of the Burton Re:Flex bindings.

Boot Support: Where these bindings shine is in the flexy ankle that gives you support, but still a lot of room to move laterally; which other bindings just don’t do. It’s easier to grab the outer parts of your board, easier to lean into a butter and counter intuitively makes you feel more confident.

Ratchet System:

Shock Absorption: The shock absorption is better than we expected and there is a good amount of cushioning.  It reduces fatigue and it’s easier on the joints….well that’s what doctors say and some riders feel.  I’m one of those riders but each body is different.

This is a good jib to all mountain freestyle board that we think many will like.

Ok, so let me preface this by saying I bought these bindings in 2015 because I got a great deal on them even though they don't really go with my riding style. These bindings are a medium flex and extremely durable. The Districts are more for the all mountain freestyle guy who does a little big of everything. If this describes you then you can't go wrong with these.
