canting foot beds? seems like a deal breaker...

To me when it comes to bindings there are only to main factors..

1) matching the binding with riding style. stiff/soft.

2) Comfort, something that will allow you to ride all day w/o and pressure points etc..

That being said, as far as i can tell, canting is the most important feature on the binding. also comfy straps..

Sooo whats everybody's thoughts on canting and who makes the most comfy straps!


THANKS!!

I find myself riding my Ride NRc's over my Union Force because the foot bed is stupid comfy, the toe cap is sweet, and the ankle strap is just fine. The ratchets treat me just fine also.... I have the newer style ratchets and I've got no complaints.

So I wouldn't leave out the comfort of a footbed...

Agreed. Canted footbeds are cool, but not a dealbreaker unless you have really bad knees. In that case they might be crucial. Smooth ratchets, toestraps that don't slip, and comfy anklestraps are the most important to me.

OK good stuff.. so now that we all agree on the straps/foot beds. whats the best???

best straps are....

seems like 390s have the best foot-bed options, what about there straps??

also can canting cause your feet to roll to the inside in an "undesirable way"

If you were standing in "normal" walking position with your feet about 6"-7" apart they might cause too much pronation, but since you mount your bindings a couple of feet apart on a snowboard the canted bindings don't have that effect.

I have found that canted bindings prevent my feet from sliding laterally too much, which used to cause pain under my 5th metatarsal head (ball of foot behind pinky toe). I think canted bindings were a godsend.

Never tried canted footbeds. My binding has adjustable cant and lift built in. Definitely a difference.
