Default Snowboard Binding Canting

How many folks out there like canted bindings? How would you like to have 4 point independent adjustment to really dial in your stance. I finally got my US PATENT 7703794. Check out this video to get a glimpse of the future of binding technology.

Isn't that essentially what the old Ride CAD did?

Default Snowboard Binding Canting Technology

The Ride adjustable binding design is far inferior and does not contain any intellectual property. This patented design has been modeled for torsion characteristics, has stiffness in all the right places, direct 5 point connection to the board, not a teeter totter like the Ride design. The concept keeps its shape when your foot is not in it thus allowing for true 4 point independent adjustment. Please do not compare,, need I say more. BTW the carbon concept weighs a fraction of what the Ride design added to the binding.

Kudos on patenting your idea.... but is there a reason you've broadcast it on youtube? Are you trolling for a licensee? If so, tread carefully.... a patent is only as good as the holder's means of protecting it.

So what you're saying is you added more screws and more parts that could break and it's better? I'm not really getting what you're trying to accomplish here with this thing as it just looks like something that's going to break and over solving a non complex problem that has been addressed with slip in canted footbeds. Who is your target market?

Default Snowboard Binding Canting Technology

Angry Dude,

The concept and design is simple and elegant, I have been riding this design for 4 years now and "parts do not break" In different conditions you may prefer a different stance. Who wants to change out a footbed every time they want another degree of cant or none at all? Molded eva foam does not give you infinite adjustablility just "canting" only. I am confident in this technology being the best way of addressing adjustability in your footbed to dial in your stance, riding style and conditions. I posted on this forum to get some feedback from folks trying canting and how they would benefit from this concept. Maybe your just angry that you didn't think of it!!

Thanks:

Steve

i bet he is

seems like a decent idea to incorporate into bindings, the way you have them seems more like a riser?

brutal soundtrack!

I think the idea is really cool. The only thing you have to do to make it marketable or sell-able to a company would be to explain how it is functional or beneficial to riding. I can already kinda see, but just letting you know. I'm sure you already know this if you've got a patent though. Anyway, I think it is a really cool idea. It would be nice to have something under the plates when it rises though. It seems like it is just a real raw system. You could maybe even have the screws spring loaded and out foam or padding under it for extra cushion. Could also put less strain on the screws and less chance of breaking.
