Hats off to Black Diamond

When I find a piece of gear I like I’ll use it up entirely. I guess I’ve come to the end of my Free Ride Plus bindings. I broke the first Binding plate about two weeks ago and sent it to Black Diamond for a repair. 4 days later they sent me a new binding. I got 4 more days in and then, On this Saturday, I broke the other plate just below the south summit of King Mt. With any luck I’ll be back in business by the end of the week.

You can see the break at the upper right screw. Anyone else have this happen?

  1. Wes –
    I skied the Free Ride Plus for a season. Thought they were great although a bit heavy for my skinny legs to carry up hill.

    I never had any issues, but i don’t ski as agressive as you 🙂 The boys at BD are pretty good about taking care of people with warranty issues. Sounds like they stepped up for ya!

    Get your rig back up and runnin’ and lets go ski something…
