K2 auto evers. Canted footbeds?

Looking into getting K2 auto ever bindings to go with my Salomon Answer but I'm looking for some feedback or info on the canted footbeds that come with these.

Auto Ever | Bindings | K2 Snowboarding

• Angled inward 3-degrees to match natural leg position
• More support to the outside of the foot provides improved control and ollie pop
• Reduces fatigue allowing you to ride longer and stronger

Can anyone confirm on the "reduces fatigue" statement? So basically the canted footbed tilts your feet forward. Ankle up, toes down? Thanx

Edit: note that I'm 40 and don't have the endurance as some of you younger guys in here but I'm running and doing squats to strengthen my legs more.

Here ya go, check out this thread:

It's 3 pages discussing canted footbeds. K2 owns Ride, so I'm assuming that they're using essentially the same technology.

I personally think the statement of reducing fatigue to allow you to ride longer and stronger is just marketing hype. I also think the Auto mechanism which is advertised to save time strapping in is also marketing hype because in order to strap in properly you need to do a few extra steps which pretty much negates having one less strap to mess with.

From the above it may seem like I'm not happy with my Auto Evers but in reality I couldn't be happier. If you're looking for a super light, stiff and responsive binding you can't go wrong with these.

I'm 36 btw so not too far in age difference. I pretty much do the same thing you're doing to get in shape and besides the effects of altitude I usually don't have any problems with fatigue
