    Yo Lci!!

    Happy 2021 LCI crew...quick question for you all... I am moving to Denver around beginning of April and wanted to know how long the general season at Loveland is to make a decision on buying a season pass for the remaining season? cheers and thanks, sandy
  2. Regular or goofy? do you have pics? I raced one as well and would love to get one for my collection. thanks, sandy

  4. go buy some Granville Island Brewing Lion Winter Ale and then go to Whistler to ride.
  5. @Lurch yes it makes a huge improvement. Without it the boot would be too flexible and you would get at least some heel movement, especially after you break in the boots. cheers, sandy
  6. Thought I would share a couple more findings with the new StepOn X and Ion StepOn setup I got... Was bored today, and did some more floor surfing and wear testing between my setups. My normal setup is Burton Driver X boots with Booster World Cup straps and Now O-drive bindings with Burton old school over the top toe straps (I hate toe caps). Retail price cost difference in my setups: Driver X boots with Booster Straps and Now O-drive Bindings with OTT toe strap = $1077.90 Ion StepOn boots and StepOn X bindings = $929.90. Setups side by side are incredibly close in
  7. Sad to hear, thoughts and prayers to his family!
  8. New setup arrived today! Burton Ion Step-On boots and Burton Step-On X bindings. Boots are just as stiff as my 2020 Driver X and bindings are a little heavier than my Now O-Drive’s but still very light (I do not think anything out there right now will be as light as the O-drives though). Cannot wait to try it on snow Just floor surfing, there is a little tiny bit of play (but that is a good thing as it will help allow for snow to be stuck underfoot and it is no worse than my O-drives feel with the Driver X and that slight bit of play is obviously where the weird clic
  9. Reviving an old thread as the search did not give me too many new updates. Anyone have any new thoughts or feedback on the Step-On system? i am getting the Step-On X bindings and Ion Step-On boots (as I have heard the Ion Step-On is actually stiffer than the Driver X). i will post some reviews and comparisons with my current Driver X and Now O-drives once setup arrives. cheers and pray for snow.
  10. @b0ardski I will be there with the fleet
  11. @softbootsurferI would not recommend it for your split...the application/chemical will not react well with your skin glue decreasing your skin effectiveness...also of note is that in my experience with the application, p-tex base repairs did not hold to the treated base, so I would not recommend using it.

    It'll buff out....

    Glad to hear you are all well
  13. @*Ace* to be fair, I won the raffle for your board (which was beautifully constructed and very high quality design), but since I am the Rad-Air rep and a soft boot carver, I felt it would be great to give it to someone who would ride and appreciate it (and the guy that I gave it to loves it). I think it is important to have all types of riding represented at events like this as it helps get riders talking about different styles where they can share experiences and try boards too...just my thought as a guy that loves sliding on snow, I hope that you will send one as it helps get the info a
  14. Sadly I cannot give input on those as I have not ridden any bindings by Rome or Ride in quire a few years.
  15. Now O-drive differences are just primarily straps and ratchets which made the new versions a bit lighter and more responsive. Now O-drive vs Drive (and Jones Apollo) is actually a significant difference. O-drive is lighter and more responsive. Drive is a 7-10 or 8-10 in stiffness and response where O-drive is a 10-10. if you want a surfy ride I would use the Drive/Apollo but if love direct response and lightweight go with O-drive. Cannot speak to the Nidecker Carbon, but Genesis is way softer than both Now’s.
