The Salomon Rhythm isn’t a bad binding for the price, but hey it’s just something made for people who don’t want to rent. All you want from a binding like this is to hold together and not fall apart on you. The Rhythm will hold together and give you an experience better than renting so you can get some consistency. Actually it’s right up there with some of the best beginner bindings out there. The 2014 and 2013 are pretty much the same.
