Binding issue on Dual

Hi all, Just something I wanted to check with Dual riders. I have a Dual 175 with Burton Driver-X boots size 12/13 (can't remember) and Union bindings (not sure they make the model, but they are similar to Altas FC: https://www.blue-tomato.com/en-CH/product/UNION-Atlas+FC+2021-618604/?varid=30430036...

Not EC...but quite good!

Happy New Year to the EC crowd, 2021 may be a victory for the long-suffering wife, who may finally get a proper anniversary celebration after these 4 years, and not a slightly broken husband recently back from Zinal EC! :-) I don't have anything snowboard or EC to contribute, but I do have this: Tho...

Surf-skating similarities to EC?

HI all, Came across surf-skates thanks to YouTube algorithm. Surf-skates have a special front truck that replicates surfing. I came across this video, with allowing for slightly annoying presenter, has some good similarities to EC, with hip rotation, etc. The bit about muscle-memory training is impo...

Re: Closed ski resorts due to the coronavirus

In a place where wearing masks is uncommon, I think the mentality is, if you are wearing a mask, you must be sick, and therefore have Covid-19. Maybe as wearing masks becomes common (Switzerland is quite badly hit with cases), this may change. Other reasons are, we get conflicting advice about masks...

Re: Closed ski resorts due to the coronavirus

It is OK, Patrice - you will survive. Figuratively and literally. :D At least this is coming towards the end of (Swiss) ski season, and most of us have had some snow fun. I personally think the governments have been very slow and prioritised profit over containment. If this strain becomes as common ...

Re: Wer kommt mit nach Zinal 25. - 27.1.? (und wie war es)

Hi joemzl, Thanks for being so active on the social side. And on the piste too. I still remember back in 2016? while I was sitting on the side of the slope, wondering what I just did wrong, you randomly appearing out of the blue and giving me advice :). One day I will converse with you in German...o...

Re: 2019-20 Boots and Bindings for SWOARD DUAL 2

Let me re-phrase. I was riding with F2 Race Titanium and UPZ RC10 on original Dual 175, and conditions which were not smooth, the impact to the feet was not good. It is a wide board, and the damping is not the same as Gen4 and above, it seems. Not sure on the latest Dual, as did not try this (was tr...

Re: [Video] 2nd Extreme Carving Camp in JAPAN

I may be in Japan for Feb 2021....still trying to make the plan - with about 20-30 of my snowboarding friends. It all depends on if it will be in Swiss school holidays ("sportferien"). Nice to meet you Shun and Taro! :-) If this trip happens, I will be sure to get in touch with you! :-) cheers, Coli...

Re: 2019-20 Boots and Bindings for SWOARD DUAL 2

Just my 2cents The Dual 2 is also a great boot with hardboots! Am riding mine with light Swoard Redline bindings ( tried also with TD2's and fin's carbon) and my light TLT6 ski touring boots I am using for splitboarding...the combo is nice and with lower angles than on the Extremecarver it feels al...
