Sticky Bindings

Post by barxx » Tue Jun 04, 2013 2:44 pm

The ratchet on one of my F4 bindings just dosen't want to let my foot go, the other one is fine.

When i lift the release catch it doesn't lift out of the ladder strap.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

They are but a month old so it is a bit of a problem?

It's bloody embarassing at the end of a run when it takes me longer to get out of my baord than it does to do the run so can you see my problem?

Yeah mine have the same problem. The F4s are far from the smoothness of snowboard bindings.

Did he make you give him a massage in return?

will try that before i have a closer look sounds like a far to easy fix, but if it works.

Heard Brindy prefers silicon as it doesn't cause his skin to go greasy after the massage

I had the same issue with my F4's and found that Super Lube seems to work a bit better and last longer than silicone spray...
