eheathDefine trendy? A binding that works better than all other binding? Plenty of other bindings come in crazy bright colors and pros use them. Most people I knew hated that they were bright orange. FKS have been legendary bindings for 15 years and they didnt change color until about 4? years ago. You saw alot of them because people were stoked to upgrade theyre broke ass gold/black fks with brand new ones. I don't think FKS bindings are a trend, theyre just the best bindings.
eheathI was refering to just the "freestyle""newschool" involvment in skiing, i know these bindings have been around forever.
why do you say they are the best? I love how mine feel (better than any other bindings), but I keep breaking shit on every pair I have owned faster than any other binding besides Marker. They may feel the best, but they are definitely not the most durable. its hard and expensive to get new parts +install them. The company has straight up said they are not willing to change the heelpiece design so they can continue to make money off people who break shit on them.
I love my bindings, but I definitely don't think they are the best if you consider everything.
