Feedback on canting
 
Probably going to replace my old Flux Titans this off-season. Flux has gone above and beyond many times helping me keep these things in service, but it's probably time to retire them.

My question is for those who are using bindings with canting, especially those of you who may also be on the wrong side of 30 and/or have some knee issues. Is it a big help? Do you now consider it a make or break feature for bindings?

Rode hard today and my knees are screaming.

It's a make or break for me. I rode non cant bindings for 14 days in a row because my flows were broken... My knees and ankles felt it. It takes a little readjustment with stance but no biggie..... I ride 0.5" wider stance with canting...

For anyone with knee issues, i've never hard bad feedback. If you don't have knee issues you maybe might not notice it, but for those of us that do have issues they are really noticeable. Especially if you run a wider stance than normal for your height

After riding the union factory bindings with 2.5 canting this season, my son doesn't want to use anything else for all mountain Freeride type snowboarding. For a straight park day he is cool without canting. I'm general he likes a wider stance for big terrain as do I. Canting all the way for a 14 year old without knee issues. He notices the lack of aches after riding with canting too... He will ride over 200 days this year, I'll ride over 150 trying to push it to 180..... I'm 37 with minor knee and ankle aches and pains.....

He averages about 45k vert a day. I do about 25-30k on full days, 10-12k on days I work in the afternoon.

Canting is a make or break for me. I will never own bindings without canting again. I have ridden Burton Mission's and Cartels, as well as Union Force's. I now ride K2 Company IPO's with 3* cant.

I have had injuries to both knees wakeboarding and canting most definitely helps alleviate fatigue that I would otherwise experience running 0 cant bindings.

I have test ridden bindings with autocant and was not a fan, but it might be good for someone who wants the best of both worlds.

Kinda what I was thinking. Oh well. Found a really good deal locally on some Flux SF45s and was gonna pull the trigger, but may wait until the off-season and try to grab the Union Factory.

Flying back from a weekend in Park city on non canted bindings. Ankle is killing me and looks like its time to try some canting.

always have canted,always will... knees still feel great even will summers full of skating too, knockknock. not sure there is a 100% correlation, but the couple of days this winter i rode without cant, i def could feel my back knee. got those flux in my wishlist for next year, they look great

linvillegorge 03-03-2014 11:45 AM

Yeah, the Flux I'm looking at lack canting. They're from two years ago, but damn they're tempting at $75 barely used.

I think holding out for something with canting my be my better option though. I have a history of knee issues and they're not getting any younger.

CassMT 03-03-2014 11:54 AM

i would make your own customs to switch between whatever bindin gyou have going..the 2-3.5 isnt enough for me personally...
