Saw these at a shop here in Japan. Might be a Japanese only thing...
POWCANT

edit: bit uninformative, that site... At least you can see the prices here http://search.rakuten.co.jp/search/m...-id=related_01

It's unfortunate there aren't any dealers in the US.

Are you looking for under the binding or just trying to convert your binding to have canting?

By accident, because I'm a stupid fucking noob that didn't know any better, I used thin foam pads underneath my old bindings all of last year and most of this one. I was just doing it because I liked the idea of extra cushioning but now I realized there was also a bit of automatic canting going on with them since the inside portions of the foam on each binding (i.e. inside side of each foot) would get worn down much more than the other. It was just that shitty foam you can get in the arts and craft section at the store. Held up OK, but had to change it every once in a while. If you could find something more durable it might be something to look into. But again, I will remind you that I know absolutely shit about this stuff so take this for what it's worth.

i actually have some foam that will be ideal imo...high density, closed cell waterproof stuff that was part of a kayak roofrack...just dont know if i can fabricate as cleanly as a commercial cant would be...need to make it so i can still lift the flap to get at my screws...

initial, 15 min fabrication so far...it actually wedges in there very snug, may not even need to secure it, maybe just some stickyback velcro patches or something...just eyeballed it, cut very easily with a hacksaw...ideal material imo, kinda rubbery

gotta say, on dry land it feels frikkn killer, very cush! may need to make a thin, flat one for the front, just so the riser matches.... gonna ride it tomorrow, get it tuned in, BAM, gonna get my Aframe on yo!

Late to the party but the POWCANT pads are 2 degrees and 3990yen is about $43 at the moment. The 4935yen ($55 or so?) pack includes special washers and extended bolts to make sure that you still have your bindings securely fastened.

Rakuten is supposed to be pushing global sales these days, the English version is here Rakuten: Pow cant - Shopping Japanese products from Japan
Seems that they dont ship overseas, but if anyone wants them i can get them and post them on.

Seems like the OP has progressed tho and probably doesnt need them anymore
