Bindings with best cushioning
I'm a bit over 40, and have some meniscus damage from old injuries... yet I'm trying to advance my skills on jumps and the rails. Whatever, you only live once.
My question is: are there bindings that are notable for having extra cushioning, to help when I screw up and land a jump too flat? And/or when I hit those mid-hill invisible chattery bumps at high speed? (I definitely feel it in my bad knee when either of those happen, and it's a cumulative thing. By the end of the season I'm definitely hurting.)
If so, what's the downside to extra cushioning?
I have 2008 Burton Cartels on one board and like them, 390s on another and don't love them (don't love the straps). Just wondering if there's anything with extra cushioning protection out there...
