Boot or Binding 'response' indicates how sensitive a boot or binding is to rider input. Products with a higher response rating will be more sensitive to rider input, react more quickly and add more support for aggressive high performance riding. Think of a race car; high performance, low comfort. Products with less response will be better suited for a rider looking for more flexibility for a more relaxed ride. Think of a Cadillac; cushy, smooth ride, but not the best at turning or aggressive driving. Most riders prefer a balance of both or a softer binding to start out.
