As a result of the added torsional flex of the ICS system, it was very easy to feel the terrain you were moving over changing. I was able to feel how the terrain was changing and orient my body accordingly to ride as smooth as possible. The WFO base was also fast as hell. I did however, feel a good bit of foot fatigue while using the EST binding system due to the increased foot flex and roll on the board.
What if you tried the bindings EST w/o the cush?
