Would the Boss 390's be pointless with a cambered board?

I own a Bataleon Riot and am kinda interested in the Boss 390's. I hear that the canted footbeds help reduce knee stress. Before I go a head and purchase the bindings, I wanted to know if having canted footbeds on a cambered board is a bad idea. Thoughts?

they do say the bosses are designed for a rockered board but that is more because of the v-rod tech than the canting. Canting may help in theory on a rocker board but would not hurt on camber.

Guys on the rome team like Bjorn Leines ride Targas on the cambered agent.

listen to this guy, riding style and quality of binding are irrelevant.

Hey uninformed person... 360 Boss have the cant beds. And they are ghetto unmatched colors.

Get with the program dude. Also, "supposedly" the cant beds will flatten out the rocker a bit. Personally, I have only noticed my knees hurt less, everything else is bullshit.

I got a pair of straight 390s for my goliath and the guy at the shop threw in the canted beds at no charge. Maybe just ask for em?

Both the canting and the V-rod are equally good for rocker and camber boards. Canting is to put your legs back into alignment. V-rod is to reduce the contact area so the dead flex spot made by the bindings is reduced. Both are tech seen in alot of other bindings.

I have a cambered board and I just ordered the Bosses. Someone from Rome directly told me they work just as well on either type of camber. Also I plan on going with a rocker board within the next year or two so these seemed to be a good choice for me.
