Knee problem: canted bindings or airbag (raiden binding)?
 
Hi
Just wondering what would be better for a 190lbs dude. My knees are hurting and I can't ride with that feeling after every landing.

I have both canted and airbag bindings, both are great, much better than my old bindings. U have a busted knee.
Make sure your angle settings and stance width aren't putting unnecessary pressure/twisting on your knees too.

Great boots and aftermarket insoles first, then I'd say canting.

I've had nasty knee problems for a while ever since some injuries. I got some canted bindings a year ago and I find they help a lot. I rode my rock board a few times the other day and the flat bindings immediately hurt my knees.

Thanks for the replies.
Seems that canting is the way to go.

Hey nivek I know boots is something very personal to look at but do you have any recommendation?

I'd say the airbags are what you want if the pain only comes from landing jumps and the canting is what you want if the pain comes from riding in general. Plus I totally agree that you should get comfy boots with insoles if you don't have some already. They can make all the difference in the world.

Well, all the pain come from landings so it's a little confusing right now.

I'm between raiden phantoms and ride capos. Which would be better for a blacklist? And more important my knees?

Phantoms. The metal frames of the Capo ride harsher.

I think overall cushioning will be better than canting. For example I have 2 pairs of K2 Formulas that have canting, but mostly plastic baseplate. On the other hand my NOW IPO's don't have any canting whatsoever, but the great minimal baseplate and cushioned footbed works great. My knees like the IPO over the Formulas.

I think factory canting isn't right for everyone. I ride with no pain and when I got canted bindings my back leg hurt. I finally switched the binding footbed for a flat one from some old bindings. I have really go fitting boots with custom footbeds.
