What forward lean do you use?

I just want to get an idea of what other people use. So what forward lean do you prefer and what type of riding do you do (park, casual all mountain, serious black diamond "freerider""

...

Btw with burton bindings with the Dial flad or w.e when it say "F1,F2,F3, etc" what does that mean? Im thinking each number is another 3 degreez




Thanks!

I don't really use any. I always set up my bindings to the boot. Adjust overhang etc and adjust the highback to sit flush with the back of the boot on as large of a contact point as possible. If it hits up top of the highback but a gap at the bottom, adjust! etc... I have never used a lean adjustment for anything but flushing up my boot and making it all fit.

Forward lean is for people that can't bend their knees.
Don't worry about the numbers it's just referring to where it's locking you in.

Because someone has to call it how they see it!

i used to find it helps for quicker and more responsive transition to heelside when i was starting out. but, i haven't used them in years. makes my legs tired faster standing in line. i should just rip them off to make my set-up lighter... in fact, that's what i'm gonna do tonight, rip them all off. with my teeth.

Most people that ride the park all day don't use any lean at all. It's a bit more comfortable if you're carving all day long on hard pack to go with a little bit. I usually go with what FLuiD said, but I make sure I have the top of the high back pulled off of the boot enough to fit a penny in there. This, for most boots and bindings is zero lean.

I have it set at almost 45 degrees. Love the instantaneous heel side response I get with this setup

That must be pretty awesome haha.

Im thinking I should prolly do it like fluid also. i guess being able to control your bend is better on rails.?

And my burton bindings fit kinda funnny with my k2 boots i think, so i guess bringing it back a bit wont hurt
