Forward Lean Angles

Is it a personal preference, or are there ideal settings for different riding styles?

Reason I ask is that my new bindings have the adjustment, my old bindings didn't.

They are Ride SPi bindings. Can I align my High Back with the heel edge? I didn't see that adjustment in the owners manual. It just shows the heel cup being moveable forward or backwards to center your boot.

Forward lean is pretty much personal preference but I think you want a lot of forward lean when riding pipe and probably a little or none when doing park.

Are there multiple holes in the highback so you could rotate it?

It looks like there is three holes where the Highback screws into the heelcup. But thee manual doesn't say if they are usable for rotating the highback.

It's a matter of preference, just play with it.

Yeah, most bindings' screws come with Loctite on them already... Doesn't hurt to apply more though if there's not much left on the screw.

The RIDE screws had it on them, but they were too short. I had to reuse the burton screws. Guess I'll just put some on them
