I know most serious borders don't like the performance of them, but I use the K2 Clickers on my board and all you have to do is pull on the leash and they release the boot (if you don't lock them). I am surprised that the industry has not found a way to make a binding system that performs as well as the "strap in" system. They have had over 20yrs now. I mostly ski and only board when the snow is wet, heavy and deep, the board floats on top much better then skies. So I don't mind the Clickers performance, and I can always release while upside down.
