The Salomon Cheif are bindings that are made to handle all kinds of riding, whether it is deep backcountry days, in the trees or laps in the park. Although the flex is rated at a 7/10, it is versatile enough that will let you tweak it out in the park, but still be responsive for hard and fast riding.
The Cheifs feature 2.5 degree canting, adding to the comfortable ride.
They have light and tough aluminium ratchets, and soft and comfortable straps. The ratchets are designed to be able to tighten completely with one long throw. Quicker to strap in, quicker you are out riding.
They have a 1 year warranty.
These are the bindings for someone who rides everywhere, and wants a binding that is going to be reliable in all sorts of conditions.
