Jeff, any plans to offer the Freeride/Freeride Pro's with the color options available on the olympics? I would love to get a set in solid black.

Sandy,

I would love nothing more than to offer custom colors for the Freeride Series. The issue is the manufacturing process - and for the foreseeable future it is not possible.

At least now I know one person is interested!

Thanks,

Jeff

Hey Jeff:

Like you are not busy enough. How about adding carbon fiber high backs or atleast pre-drill the holes for it as an add on extra.

Bola,

Thanks for the input.

Busy is the operative word!

In general we would like to do this but we need to set up a source & address a few technical issues along the way.

Please don't hold your breath but do know your input is on the radar!

Hey Jeff, I rode a pair of modified Catek Freerides I got from Ken Delrossi. He put on Salomon SPX6 straps and highbacks. That combination was excellent and really held my foot down and gave me a lot of heelside power. My suggestions would be to drill a slightly higher hole for the ankle strap and to design a EVA foam pad (similar to the Nidecker pad) that sits onto of the cant/lift plate to give you added shock absorption. Great binding... I'll definitely be looking to see what you come up with next!

the highback isn't replacable at all, is it? I'd love to see a highback with lateral support wings ie salomon spx5.
