Burton Cartel forward lean

Hey, I just got my Cartels and have not ridden them yet. I am mostly freerdie and carving, should I be usuing the forward lean at all? Also how do you know what setting the forward lean is at? I turn the little knob and I dont see anything changing?

Thanks

I have two pairs of Cartels, one from 2008 and one from 09, they both have a small window on the highback above the knob. There is a red mark on the screw that indicates the forward lean setting. I have mine set on 2.

the forward lean is quite useful. It allows for the highback to press into the back of your lower calf to gives really good feedback.

OK, I think I will just try them at 1 and see what its like. Also the top strap can be moved to 3 different positions. Right now it is in the middle position, would the top position (higher on the boot) be better for freeride? or should I just try them in the middle first

the upper most setting is for speed and stability like in free riding,

the middle is for all mtn use

the lower one is for flexibilty, such as for freestyle. i usually keep all my bindings in the middle position. its the best of both worlds

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
