Default High Back Adjustment

I have been riding for 7 years and just ran across an tutorial to adjust your high back. Since I ride +15/-15 my high backs are no longer parallel with the edge of the board. The tutorial has you rotate them to make them parallel. I have never done this but wondering what difference should I expect while riding. Do you all do this?

It's a personal preference. Some do, some don't. On my Cartels I had, I never did, but with my Unions, I did. I didn't really notice a difference other than my boot fit a little better in the binding once the highback was rotated.

it feels better on my knees and joints. i think it makes carving some what easier when they are parallel to the board. i mean it could be all mental at the same time though.

It's not mental. It does make a difference. Kind of like canting. You don't miss it if you don't have it. You should feel a positive difference in your legs and your turning performance. If not, switch 'em back.

I ride +15/-12, sometime last season I rotated my high backs to be parallel with my board. A few weeks ago I rotated them back to the default position. It's personal preference, I prefer them not rotated. Rotate them, see if you like it If not put them back.

Default Do All Bindings Rotate?

The binding you own should allow highback rotation, right? I have Flow T5s and Ride EXs... see no way to rotate highbacks on either. Am I missing something?

many bindings do not have a feature to rotate the highbacks.
