Canted bindings?
 
So I would like to make a change to canted bindings but I am not having a lot of luck shopping around here. I am told they are done by a lot of manufacturers but cannot find what I am looking for. My requirements in addition to the canted are as light weight as possible and plenty of adjustment available in the highback. What is out there?

I currently ride a Burton Supermodel X with the channel and Burton CO2 bindings. However, I am also shopping for a 2nd board which may end up being a Marhar or Batalion. Thus I will take recommendations for both channel and non-channel.

popular bindings

canted: burton, k2, ride, salomon

not sure: flow, union, raiden

not canted: flux

That should give you about 200 pairs of bindings to research, the internet is your friend.

I must have missed it, because I don't recall canted in Burton. Also, no one seems to list weight. It's hard to shop around here because even though we have 3 ski hills, everybody sells the same stuff.

Burton has some kind of patented or their own canting system, it may only be available in a specific variety of models.

If your CO2's are EST, you can replace the footbed with the Cantbed 2.0: Cantbed 2.0 Mens | Burton Snowboards

I did this with my CO2's before I switched to 2012 Restricted Cartel's, which also have a canted footbed: Cartel Binding | Burton Snowboards

As far as weight goes, there's not a huge discrepancy anymore, some are heavier than others, if you want to find the "light" ones look at the super $$ models that have carbon and titanium. ($300-400)

That's the ticket! That should do nicely and not much $$ either.

The bindings for the other board can wait. I'll want to match the colors the best I can once I know what I am getting.

flows are not canted

unions are not canted

raidens are canted

as far as i know the canted options are: rome, ride, k2, burton, raiden.

rome, ride, and k2 use regular canting. burton i think uses "auto canting" or something like that. i think it's different densities of foam so that it cants based on where you put your weight. (i could be completely wrong on that) and raiden uses what they call "air canting," whatever that is. i assume it means there's air in the foam base.

i did not know that salomon had canting...

I have my homie's Salomon Chiefs here, which upon initial inspection looked slightly canted to me. They look pretty flat in these pics. Maybe 1 degree?

Channel: Burton Cartel restricted EST if you can find them or just the regular non restricted, they have "autocant" wwhich is basicl a flat foam footbed that has softer foam on the inside of your foot and harder foam on the out so you sink into the soft foam more, it works.

Non Channel: Rome Boss 390 with "yes i cant" which has different cant angle footbeds or Ride Maestro which have the same thing but are a bit stiffer.
