Maybe. Either way, I didn't feel anything.

What bindings you talking about? The Malavitas/Cartels? Or the Rome 390s? The 390s have interchangeable pads.

I rode the early release Cartels (have mostly ridden Rides previously) yesterday, first experience with the "autocant". As it happens, I didn't notice anything. I didn't feel it at all. I also didn't feel any knee ache.

Hell, I didn't notice the bindings at all. Exactly what I want from a binding.

Did you have canted Ride bindings ? What stance width you ride ? Also did you run the same width with the Cartels? I'm curious because all I hear from people that use auto canting is "can't feel it"

I rode the EXs (wedgie 1.5) and very briefly the SPIs (wedgie 3.0).

Liked them both (the EX more). I definitely noticed the canting on the SPIs and was aware of it on the EXs -- especially when switching out with no-cant bindings.

I am riding the same stance width (which I can't recall at the moment) +12/-12 with the Cartels. What can I say, I don't notice the canting, but definitely don't feel the discomfort I used to get with a non-canted binding. So, hocus-pocus or otherwise, the auto-cant works (at least for me).

I think auto cant is more or less for landings and high pressure. If you're just standing in it or just riding around you probably aren't really engaging it that much. But upon landing that inside section is going to collapse easier keeping the torque off your knees.
