Bent Metal Cor-Pro 2021 Review by The Good Ride
Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Cushy and smooth turning
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Limited boot to binding adjustability.
The Bent Metal Cor-Pro offers up a lot of shock absorption and a full sized disc to give a different ride than the other bindings in its line.

Felt pretty light.
There is a good twist and only a little give pulling it back with the Bent Metal Cor-Pro.
Binding to Boot Adjustability
You can move the gas pedal in or out but not adjust the heel loop so you have to rely on turning your discs heel to toe to center the binding/boot on the board.
Stance Width Adjustability
The Bent Metal Cor-Pro will only have stance width adjustability if you are in the middle of the recommended sizing.
We liked the ankle strap because it felt like it was longer than other Bent Metal Straps. They wrapped more around our boot instead of sit on top.
Good ratchets with the Bent Metal Cor-Pro. They were smooth and had no problem cranking them down.
Pretty smooth medium to medium/fast response and it powered the pretty wide Gnu Gremlin edge to edge pretty well.
Flex Under Foot/Buttering
The full sized disc of the Bent Metal Cor-Pro isn’t as buttery/flexy underfoot as the other Bent Metal bindings with mini-discs but it wasn’t bad.
Top notch shock absorption. It isn’t like the Jones Mercury or Now Drive which are at the pinical of shock absorption, but they are definitely up there. It is a really cush ride and it handles slow to medium shock absorption like a champ. High speed is not as good but still really good.
So in conclusion the Bent Metal Cor-Pro was a good binding and my (James Biesty’s) personal favorites in their line. I would like to spend more time on it and compare it to some of my favorites.
