General Bindings Questions

I am going to be getting a new board and set of bindings this winter and was looking at Rome 390 Boss since they have a ton of good reviews (going with a NS Evo). I had some general questions about bindings and the features they have.

What exactly is "canting"? What would be the purpose of it? What does it change when you are riding? What type of rider would mostly use canting and the various degrees that it can be changed?

Same questions in but reference to forward lean and highback rotation? Forward lean I'm assuming simply means the highback is angled towards the front more and highback rotation as the naem says, just can make the back of the binding turn angles. What about the other questions above in reference to these two features also? Thanks for the help, sorry for what may be dumb questions

Go to the video section of ridesnowboards.com and then find the tech section. Click on the wedgie video and watch. They explain canting pretty well.

Yeah you got forward lean right. More of it makes heelsides "more powerful". Same with rotation if made parallel with board edge. But for rotation I've never really felt a difference though many will tell you it matters.
