Default Adding cant. Wide stance trashing my knee.

I have googled the F' out of this subject on this site and so far everyone who has posted about doing a DIY canted footbed conversion to their bindings has said to go to the Arts/Craft store to find the rubber mats or HD foam.

I have been to 3-4 different places with no luck whatsoever. I ask for HD foam or rubber, they point me to cushion/pillow/bedding type open cell foam. WTF?


Where can I find some good adhesive (or non adhesive) backed foam, or rubber, etc. I would prefer to find it locally for a quick fix rather than order online, but if that's my only option,...

....also, I really don't want to go the route of adding cant under the bindings between the plates and board if I can avoid it. (That just seems riskier to me somehow!).

Appreciate any help!

It seems like more Bindings would be made with canted footbeds. To me it is a night and day comfort issue and just feels right. I have a pair of Ride Revolts with canted foot beds that aren't my best bindings I own but are by far the most comfortable. You may just be better off buying new with the footbeds your looking for. Just my $0.02....

You're looking for 3M foam with the adhesive backing. You need to go to a plumbing store.

burton makes some canted footbeds that you could by they are made as an add on for the custom binding, what you could do is peel off the mounting hardware )glued on and re glue to your binding
I think they are called cant beds

Snowboard Bindings, CATEK Community, Binding, Kessler, Gear, Boot, Shop

I've had these for a few years. They are bomb proof. Infinite cant options. And also interchangeable with the race plates I just bought (OS2). However, you pay for it. They are not exactly light weight either.

Not to be a jackwad, but why don't you just narrow your stance? Aren't you freeriding?

Some automotive supply and photo supply stores might have it.

check out your local Home Depot or Lowes. They should definitely have something there for you!

What he said. And if you do put it under the binding (which like you said, not ideal), make sure to get longer bolts for the mounting disk!

Thanks guys! That would have been my second and third places to search.

nahhhhh! Go ahead, Be a "jackwad!" Lot of us here! LOL!
I just went with the wider stance last half dozen days or so of riding end of last season. I like how much more stable I feel on the board.

I learned & started riding on a 163cm board with about a 19.5in. stance. (...I'm 6ft.) I widened that stance out to around 22" early in 2012. It helped a LOT!

I Rode my Rome 159 & NS 157 with about a 22-23 in stance respectively. Now I have them at 23.75" & almost 25" now. Feels good riding. But these first dozen days so far this season, I've noticed I am getting some pain & swelling in my L knee! (...lead foot, reg. rider.) Especially when I'm doing a lot of butters & just managed a few small (Non Steezy} nose roll, Nollied 180's! Btw, I ride ducked @ +18/-12.

If canting doesn't fix this? I most likely will go back to a slightly narrower stance. Wanna try this first!

Yeah, most of the posts I saw where the guys did an "under the base plate" can't, did so using shaped hard, wood or plastic plates. They did make a point of saying they were using longer screws. That was what I thought made it a little sketchy. My thinking was it might tend to increase the stress & leverage on the inserts. I don't want to risk pulling an insert! But thanks for the heads up!

I liked the concept that BA reviewed some weeks/months back with the canting built right into the boards binding mounts! IIR, he seemed to like the board. Can't recall the name, but he gave it a positive review!


-late, late edit-
...I even saw where some guy added canting to his riding by grinding down and angling the soles of his boots!
