These heavy hitting aluminium bindings will let you charge hard and fast, giving you the stability and confidence to tackle anything that gets in your way. For the more mellow riders, the stiffish Fame bindings may be a bit too aggressive. All that being said, these are ideal for any lady looking to add that extra kick to their riding.

The Fame bindings are made for the confident riders out there who aren’t intimidated by speed or quick edge-to-edge turns. Of course, it’s never guaranteed that a certain product will prevent you from falling flat down on your face but the Slimeback Highbacks do a pretty solid job in giving you good control over the board – and, what’s more, they’re comfy too.

“The Fame bindings are made for the confident riders out there who aren’t intimidated by speed or quick edge-to-edge turns”

Despite the stiff nature of the Fames, they do not lack comfort. The adjustable heelcup allows for a perfect fit. Add the Slimeback Highbacks and the women specific ankle straps that provide for direct-contact power transmission, and you can be sure that these things won’t ask you to trade comfort for aggression.

They say fame doesn’t last forever but we’d like to disagree here. Ride are so confident that these bindings will withstand the elements, that they’ve backed them with a lifetime warranty.

With their hard charging personality and quick edge-to-edge control, the Ride Fames make for a solid pair of all-mountain bindings. They are responsive, without undue aggression and are designed to please the heavy hitting females out there who are looking to get that extra kick to their turns.

Tester’s Verdict

Stella PenttiWhitelines

“It was one of those foggy icy-ish spring days when I got my hands on these things. I’ve never ridden the Ride Fame bindings before, and when the guy at the booth set me up with them, I felt that feeling of “I’m not really sure about this” slowly starting to show on my face. I’ve tried my fair share of stiff bindings before and noticed that quite often they make my calves hurt, especially if the highbacks are of a more stiffer nature. Quite frankly, I wasn’t up for any additional leg pain that day (or any other day for that matter).

“I spent the whole day riding the Ride Fame bindings and not once did I feel my calves suffer from their stiffness”

Despite my slightly dubious face, the guy over at the Ride stand convinced me to give the Fames ago. Little did I know that I was in for a treat. I spent the whole day riding the Ride Fame bindings and not once did I feel my calves suffer from their stiffness. The Slimeback Highbacks definitely do their job well here.

Absolutely loved riding the Ride Fame bindings. They give you just the right amount of extra push to your riding, so for any fabulous female rider out there who loves to charge, these bad boys will definitely make you feel like you want to go fully senderella.”
