Bindings are ready. Tech toe pieces are ready. Preorders go out first, a few will have these at the end of October. Everything will go onsale after that.

Here is some new things i have been working on, i looked around for straps i wanted on my bindings and there was nothing that i liked so i built some. Focus was on Light weight but supportive ankle and cap strap. A urethane blend with leather and foam core for the ankle strap and a full urethane cap strap with ratchet.

Here we go they are done. The Bossu.
Wood veneer over e-glass high backs stiff with flex where its needed. Leather straps sewed on an old singer sewing machine (thats why i learned to sew at primary school). Urethane moulded in place contact points where the board and binding touch. Almost all of it (but the ratchets) built in-house in garage.

Beautiful man nice work.. This sets a new bar for touring in soft boots (from my vantage point). Does the the tech piece work with hard boots as well?

I told my brother to check your bindings out (he's in the market). Is facebook the only way to order at this point? He'd be ordering from Virginia. He's into the ground-up operation you've got going. Any word on price? Peace

Hey Zude, they are $549usd + shipping (around $65usd) to the USA . Includes ride mode and tech touring mode. Climbing bars won't be available untill spring. Must use karakoram clips on the board.

He can order by sending me an email rangerbindings@gmail.com. Still building a webstore. First bindings will ship on the 25th of November. Everything is built to order. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Chris,
why does it need Karakoram clips?
Shipping to EU, Sweden specifically?

It works best with Karakoram clips it might work with Chinese hooks it has clearance to but i recommend Karakoram clips this is what i tested with. You could go no clips just tip and tail the binding can take up the slack in theory.

I have been running around on the concrete and shingle with the bindings on trying to destroy the moulded in place urethane bushings but still looking good. My favorite part is the touring... the possibilities from here are exciting. Fitwells with some hardboot inserts please.

I'm interested in these things, they look sweet. I'd like to see many more pictures of these things though, some shots of the board mounts or a new video with the actual production model showing all the pieces and installing the binding in ride mode would go a long way for me.
