I'm surprised a ghetto (or non-ghetto if they're awesome!) mod for canted footbeds hasn't surfaced by now. I'm trying to think of ways of obtaining EVA foam to made canted mods too.

If you guys haven't tried out canted beds it's definitely worth a look, especially if you have bad knees. You definitely notice the difference, I love the contrbands because of those canted beds... not just that, but it's a definite plus!.

there was an instructor at mt snow whos been doing this for years. he would take the kind of plastic most season passes would be made out of and cut in half then slip it under the bindings on which ever side your suppose to cant and tighten down the bindings so that side didnt go down as far as the other side of the binding. thats prob the best ghetto cant youd be able to do that i can think of.

Nice! I saw those reviewed on Shayboarder.com she had a lot of good tings to say about them. Good to know!

Hmm... I didn't have a clue about canting until reading this thread. If its better for your knees I'm gunna have to look into it more... Do people normally cant both footbeds? Maybe I should just invest in those...

To legit to quit.

Shred Souls look nice, but here my problem... it seems like it would just angle you foot/ankle into position and not your whole entire lower leg...

canted foot beds seem like a more effective option but the shred soles are a must if your stuck with non canted bindings

I would def like to check out canting options in the future but the best fix is moving your stance in an inch or so. I was rocking 26in a few years ago but it was causing a lot of stress on the outside of my knees, esp my front one, but I moved my stance to 24in and the problem was solved. And I don't really miss my super wide stance anyways.

I haven't tried it yet. Just a link I have saved. I will say that when you cant the whole binding the amount that the outside needs to raise is quite surprising.
