kentmillecam Posted August 10, 2010 Share Posted August 10, 2010 Two years ago I broke my ankle when I hit a buoy and my bindings did not release.Â I continue to fatigue and hurt my ankle in forward fall accidents when the bindings do not release. After hearing HO's sales pitch about the EXO and how it is "safe" and will release on forward falls, I was sold.Â My local dealer mounted everything up and away I went hoping to be injury free.Â I took a forward fall the first week and the system released a little late, but not bad.Â Then, three weeks ago I took another forward fall.Â The EXO bindings released late and in the process completely bent the rail that the boots attach to.Â The rail was bent to a 45 degree angle.Â Of course, this completely trashed my front AND rear ankles.Â I've never had rear ankle problems, but I do now! Â The dealer and I have both emailed HO pictures of the rail.Â It's been three weeks and neither the dealer or myself have heard a thing or had ANY response from HO.Â There are some serious issues with this binding and HO doesn't want to talk about it.Â Be careful if you're on this system or you plan on purchasing it. Â I'm not the kind of guy that usually goes public when I have product issues.Â But, when a manufacturer won't respond for three weeks and there is this major of an issue with the product, others should know about it!
