Default Canted beds risk knee injury?

I was just wondering if it is at all logical to think that on beat seat landings having a canted foot bed would actually hurt you.

In back seat landings your rear knee is already tweaked a little bit towards the tail of the board, and if you add the cant in the opposite direction wouldn't this make for a more painful experience?

I haven't ridden canted beds and am considering if i should make them a requirement on my next pair of bindings. (i'm 6'1 and rock a 24 inch stance with no knee pain)

Although i hear that most of the people like the cant beds, i was just wondering about any drawbacks like it feeling awkward when pressing or something.
Too Fast!

If anything I think it would help because it's keeping your knees in a strong position to absorb impacts. I love my formulas with canted beds, I definitely get less knee fatigue at the end of the day. The degree of cant is not so that it makes your knees tweak inwards.
