Ride C-8 Binding - Fire 2023
A great daily driver binding for the more aggressive rider, the C-8 strikes a great balance between aggressiveness and forgiveness while still leaning more towards the aggressive side. An excellent binding for advanced riders that want to be able to step on the gas when it is time to charge, but want a little bit of tweak-ability and jib-ability out of their all-mountain bindings.
FLUIDITY IN FORM AND FUNCTION, THE C-8 IS A NEW VIBE FOR RIDE BINDINGS.
The C-8 is an entirely new direction for Ride. We set out to design the smoothest riding binding in the world and the C-8 did not disappoint. The Urethane in the Slimeback™ Highback provides a smooth ride and allows for maximum lateral mobility. The C-Series Performance Chassis pairs an aluminum heelcup with a glass filled nylon base tray. The aluminum heelcup provides the feel and durability of aluminum where you need it while the composite tray offers a damp and responsive ride. The Reversible Ankle Strap provides two riding positions. Ride with the stiff part of the strap on the top for a more aggressive feel or swap the straps so the soft part is on top for more flexibility and lateral movement. The canted footbed aligns your joints with a 2.5 degree angle while providing more leverage over the tip and tail of your board. Integrated rubber PODS make for an even smoother ride. The C-8 is designed for high-end performance
Did you break something on your RIDE bindings? Just looking for some spare parts? Making a franken-binding? We got what you need. Not sure which part you need?

C-SERIES PERFORMANCE CHASSIS
The C-Series Performance Chassis is the same Chassis as the standard C-Series chassis, but with 20% short-glass injected into a nylon tray. Injected short-glass makes the chassis more responsive while the nylon composite provides a smooth ride.
Highbacks utilize urethane similar to our Slimewalls™ technology. The Slimeback™ material absorbs shock and damps vibrations to help smooth the ride while providing fluid support.
INJECTED TWO-PIECE STRAP
Designed to perfectly contour to your boot and provide long-lasting support.
MINIMALIST TOE STRAP
Designed to offer maximum performance and durability with minimum weight and distraction
Designed to improve ladder durability and eliminate ratchet wag, resulting in a smoother user experience with the same hold you expect.
An ultra-light footbed that uses subtle angles to align the ankles and knees to a more natural and comfortable position. The angle also gives leverage to press the board for huge pop, without affecting your preferred stance width.
C-SERIES EVA BASEPAD
An extra cush EVA Basepad that wraps under the binding and up the sides to damp out vibrations and make for a smooth ride.
The plastic disc offers more lateral flex than aluminum for the rider that is focused on comfort and flex over hard-charging performance
