Agreed. I forgot how light they are but went to a Sports Chalet (my local shop ) and picked up cartels and malavitas and they did feel light.

My K2 Formulas are VERY light, and have canting. Much lighter than other canted bindings I've owned like Rome 390 Boss & Ride NRC.

I don't actually own a pair, but it's a binding that has been well received by those who could get their hands on it. BA has a review here

2013 Salomon Hologram Used and Reviewed

It also has what you're looking for - light weight and canting. I don't think this forum is very fond of thegoodride but whatever, I'll link you to that too

As far as I could tell the ones I rode were not canted. I'm not sure why that's listed on the website. Chiefs are though.

From what I understand, Salomon's canting system is like Burton's where you can't see it with the naked eye but it's integrated into the foam.
