The K2 CintchTryst is a quick release binding that doesn’t offer much except for quick release. We’d like to see them play around more with response than ease of entry. It does support the ankle better than Flow but it still doesn’t compare to some of the leading binding companies. If you need to have quick release be prepared to sacrifice performance compared to many of the traditional strap bindings out there that are improving response and flex under foot. The Tryst doesn’t offer dynamic turn initiation or performance but it does offer a predictable traditional ride. For most of us if you learn to strap in standing up it reduces a lot of time and then makes the quick release only a few seconds faster. You also don’t have to sit down or get on your knees. Lets face it some people are so enamored with this idea that they are willing to sacrifice performance. If you are one of those people then this is one of the better quick release bindings out there.
