Rossignol XV Binding 2017 Review by The Good Ride

The Rossignol XV binding is a decent binding but unlike most of Rossi’s boards we didn’t find the magic underfoot. It’s not a bad binding and everything works but the ride felt a bit more dead undrefoot than many others we tried.

Paired these bindings up with the XV Magtek board so this review will be about the XV binding at how it performs with the XV board.

First, THE BAD: the heel cup adjustment is a pain in the ass. It's inside the heel cup and it's a tough spot to get a screwdriver in straight so it is really a bad design. They should probably move it to the exterior but the good thing is that once you set it to your boot size you're done and never need to set it again.

Second, THE GOOD: This binding is incredibly responsive but also comfortable. There's a ton of padding so you'd think it wouldn't have the response it has, but it does. The XV bindings have forward lean built in which I normally am not a fan of, but these high backs were so comfortable that I never even thought about the lean. The straps were as comfortable as Burtons in my opinion and the toe strap never moved, unlike my Burton toe straps. The footbeds are canted and the toe has an 8 degree ramp. I was a bit concerned if this would be too much but paired up with the XV board, this is perfect. It provides additional leverage to really charge. The toe ramp and heel cup both pull out, the high back can be rotated and the spinal cord straps can even be adjusted. You'd be hard pressed to find a more adjustable binding, with the exception that these bindings will not allow 0 lean.

The XV board really needs to have a responsive binding to make it shine and this binding is the perfect set up. I don't know how they would pair up with a softer board, but if you have a stiff/aggressive deck this bindings is an excellent choice!
