Ride Orion 2016 - 2011 Review by The Good Ride

The Ride Orion is a boot that could easily be mistaken for something from the early 200’s but it’s well made and has a well-reduced footprint.  Ride makes good boots and although they don’t own the market they do have a good following with some riders.  All you can ask for with beginner boots is are they better than renting and are they reliable?  The answer is yes to both.  In addition, they are pretty comfortable for an entry level binding.  These will help you get some consistency when learning how to ride but when you start to progress you’ll want to dump these boots.
