Burton doom bindings--hurt my legs

hey guys!
i just got some new burton doom bindings, i set them up and i went for about 3 days and they really started to hurt my legs, like in the upper leg. The back peice(not sure what its called) kinda seems like its too far foward, but its as far back as it goes.. am i just not used to it?? or what?
anything i can do here?? i really wanna go out boarding tomorrow
Thanks a ton!

it's called forward lean, and burton is notorious for insanity in that area

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

Most boards, and by that I mean like 99.9% of boards (except maybe slalom boards) have a universal binding mount system. No worries about sticking with Burton.

unless you're riding Burton ICS, you can fit any binding that comes with a universal baseplate to your board.

Union Force, Contact or Cadet. I feel your pain with the burton binding's forward lean. It's meant to help you keep your legs bent at all times but it gets very tiring for your quads.

yea I was using my friends technine board today which had cartels on it, my legs were wiped. I went back to my K2 Darkstar with Union Force bindings.

I honestly like my K2 auto bindings more than my Union forces though, shorter highback, nice fles pattern, great hold, quick entry, tons of padding. The forces ankle straps are cushier though, those are like strapping you to your board with a pillow

its not meant for that at all, its meant so you buy burton burtons which have a forward cut on them. i would imagine even with burton boots it is still an intense forward lean..

my reccomendations are
rome 390s
union contacts

Lib Tech Skate banana
Flow NXT-FS
Nike kaiju
Burton [ak] 2l Cyclic Jacket
Holden Northfield 3L pants
