RIDE EL HEFE $400
The name seems appropriate for something this powerful. El Hefe is an ultra-responsive binding ready to take charge. With a carbon highback and aluminum chassis, testers found this to be without a doubt the stiffest and most aggressive tested, but thanks to canted urethane in the baseplate, it was also the most chatter-free. The result is a binding that can charge through chunder with confidence and lay down trench-inducing carves with the utmost ease. Be warned: if you’re looking for playful forgiveness, this ain’t the one for you. If power and response are what you’re after, however, this boss is ready to lead the way.
RAD: Carbon infused high backs are stiff and powerful. BAD: Anyone but hard chargers need not apply.
