There's literally nothing special about this binding in this regard - all GW labeled bindings from all binding manufacturers work this way. It's the shape of the binding AFD and boot AFD/sole following the GripWalk dimensions.Any more detail on what modification/improvements allow this to accommodate GW and non GW lugs better? Does the AFD do something special or is it more in concert with the claw/wings too?
300 grams down from Wardens, is that correct?
Not a big fan of how the Wardens look, although love their performance and on the other hand-love the look of the STH2.
So quite naturally-quite like the Strive.
Not sure I buy the weight statements if you’re not spinning. People really are complaining about the weight of a Pivot 15/18? It’s what, 1245gm x 2?
Sth2 13 - 1145gm
Sth2 16 - 1222gm
So 60% those for the Strive would put them at
about 690 and 735gms
That type of extreme weight difference could matter.

Thanks for the update! I was hoping that the new Strive demos would have the same mounting pattern as the Warden 13s so I can just remount using the same holes. So the non-demo Strive 14 and 16 follow the same pattern as the Sth2’s?I now have on hand some new Strive 13 Demo with 100 brake, and new Warden 13 MNC Demo with 115 brake.
Thought I'd weigh the pieces and take some pics for interests sake.
The Warden Demo and Strive Demo use a different mounting pattern.
The Strive's attached mounting instruction paper looks like it uses a common Salomon Jig.
Neither the Warden nor Strive toe-track has a floating screw ( this is typical I think ).
However the Warden heel-track does have a floating screw, while the Strive heel-track does not have a floating screw.
The Warden toe track has a 2mm ABS plate under its metal track, while the Strive toe track does not have any plate under its metal track.
Other than for that 2mm ABS plate, the height of both Warden and Strive toe-tracks is essentially the same.
The Strive's heel-track is lower than the Warden.
Weights are below, which includes the screws, and shows that the Strive is about 350g lighter per pair.
