Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
Griffons have no elasticity and are a release binding, not a retention binding like the FKS. While there is nothing wrong with griffons per se, I prefer the elasticity found in turntable bindings.
Well not really unless you count deflection based on the elasticity of the plastic housings themselves, which I personally wouldn't.
That's why you have DINs though. They don't really move until you exceed the selected DIN and then they release completely. It's a different type of binding altogether from an FKS or other turntable, which provide elastic movement and rebound prior to a release. I'm not saying griffons are lacking, it's just that I prefer the elasticity of the magical spinning dildo heel, and I even have a pair of griffons on my tahoes too so I do still use them sometimes.
