1. Binding Brand & Model You Currently Ride:Rome 390 Boss 2013


2. Width & Angles:21.5 15+/10-


3. Generalize up your riding type (all-mtn, jibber, eurocarver, etc):All mtn.. mostly Pow and some groomers.


4. How old are you, and how long have you been an active snowboarder:37 years old / 18 years on a board


5. How important is canting to you? Honestly its very important. Coming from a set of bindings that did not have canting to my new ones has been eye opening. I can ride longer with less fatigue and have no pain in my knees whatsoever. I would always be sore at the end of the day on my old bindings with no cant.. especially in my knees. So canting for now on.. period!

1. Binding Brand & Model You Currently Ride: 2013 K2 Formula


2. Width & Angles: 22.5 15+/9-


3. Generalize up your riding type (all-mtn, jibber, eurocarver, etc): Groomers


4. How old are you, and how long have you been an active snowboarder: 29 years old / 4 years on a board


5. How important is canting to you? Both bindings I've owned have had canting. When I rented boards my guess is that there was no canting. Since it has been a while since the rental days I can't tell you what i prefer, although canting has never caused issues, so that's a plus in my book!

1. Binding Brand & Model You Currently Ride: Flux Titan (now the TT) and Burton Triad


2. Width & Angles: 22.5" 15/-15


3. Generalize up your riding type (all-mtn, jibber, eurocarver, etc): all-mountain


4. How old are you, and how long have you been an active snowboarder: 31, 6 years


5. How important is canting to you? Don't know. Never ridden a canted binding, but I am valuing it highly in my next binding purchase. More important than canting to me though is shock absorption and that's the main reason I'm leaning toward the Union Factories slightly over the Flux SF.

5. How important is canting to you? I can't really tell the difference as long as I don't spread the bindings beyond 22". If I go wider than 22", I prefer the canting.
Thanks for seeking our feedback!

Based on the OVERWHELMING response in favour of Canting by people who already use canting... I will definitely try it next season. I think the best would be optional canted footbeds or some sort of Autocant. I have a blown knee and every little thing helps as one gets older...
