Cantered bindings... discuss...

Hey hey,

So when I bought my new Rossignol Jibsaw I figured I'd be riding a little wider than I might be used to to play more butters etc...

I ended up getting the Rossi Cuda bindings too. Part of the reason was the cant-ing I thought would be better for my 33 year old knees!

Anyone else here invested in canted bindings? All hype and no delivery? Notice the difference? Would never turn back?

Cheers!

Dave

First point of discussion : Will you be riding a horse while all this cantering is happening?

Its "canting" or "canted bindings", as zk0ot pointed out, cantering is what a horse does....

anyhow, i had a few with, a few without. Helped with knee pain on me for sure, but after switching back to no canting, i could go either way. Its definitely good to have, but proper footbeds help a ton too.

I got like a 2 degree wedge and honestly I don't really notice any difference. But for whatever reason I'm a little leery about buying new ones without it.

i have a pair of k2 formulas from 2012 on one of my boards with a 3 degree canting.. for whatever reason, may or may not be the canting, but i really dislike the binding. just feels a little restrictive in a sense. i find my self to be more of an aggressive rider and i feel a lot more natural on flat footbed bindings. i guess they just arent for me

I have a wide stance as a product of surfing for 20 years. Now I'm pretty much maxed out on my board. I have a pair of ride spi with 4 degree can't and they are so awesome for my knees, I love them.

There's still evidence of your "horse play" in the title
