Default Can decide on these two bindings

hello all!

I am currently looking to purchase a new set of bindings but cant decide between -

Rome 390 Boss
or
Burton Malavita

they will be going on a Bataleon Aerobic 151 and I will be doing all mountain riding and be going in the park too. I am a beginner in the park but I am capable of doing any sort of run.

Thanks!

(also up for any other binding suggestions people have!)

If you want canting rome and need adjustability to center your boot rome, otherwise both are great bindings. The burtons will be lighter if that matters.

Both the 390 Boss and the Malavitas have canting.

I suppose it's technically true the vita's have canting with the autocant footbed. I'm not sure I would consider it canting in the same way rome and others do it. Isn't the auto-cant about a .5 deg v. rome where you have customizable 0, 2 and 3.5 deg options

Nah, the effect is pretty much the same. In any case canting should really be in the boot, not in the binding...

Default all things being equal canting is overrated imo

pretty sure the jury is out on that one. Canted footbeds are out there but its not like it revolutionized, or even really impacted that industry for that matter.

sims xwedge would just be one example and that is new tech even further away from your foot. And apparently it works.

Another example is I have pretty extreme pronation, so introducing this in the boot would be disastrous for me compared to keeping it on the binding or board.

Nah, it should not be in the footbed/insoles, it should be in the midsole/shell.
