i just got my first set of cap straps, on burton cartels.
they take a bit of getting used to as they feel quite different. but i like them
i understand that aside from their gimmicky aspect,
they can hold your foot pushed into the heelcup (but the ankle strap does that anyways);
they do remove any pressure point from pinching your toes (altho good fitting boots and binders should do this anyways);
but i think primarily, the cap strap ensures that the foot is bound to the board at their extreme, which in turn provides the optimal amount of response, due to a few centimeters extra torsional length.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
