Ride Bindings

hey,

just scooped up ride beta bindings and they come with two sets of discs. any recommendations as to which i should try first? what are the differences going to be between the two?

one is forged aluminum, the other is "shift disc."

i would be lying to say i have any idea what the difference is... perhaps flex?

any help is greatly appreciated.

so last night when i saw these baseplates i was half dead. the difference between the regular and shift disc is the placement of the slots. the shift disc can be used to shift the position of the binding on the board for smaller or larger feet. makes sense... shift disc shifts your feet forward or backward on your board.

another idiotic question solved by the OP.

I could be mistaken, but i think it is actually made to shift it left/right. The slots are supposed to be used to move the board forward and back, so you can get them centered on the board the best. The slots are offset to allow for more adjustment in the stance width.

the slots are offset alittle so you can center your boot over the board, Rotate the disk 180 and you will see.. You really cant adjust the width that much the slots are not that wide.
"legallyillegal" has them correct you can see in his pic the slots are offset. If you have a burton board with 3 hole mount the disk will run the other way.

so i have the same bindings and i have been wondering this.
if i put the "slip disc" text right side up like in the photo then the toe end of the binding hangs over the edge, only by half a cm if that.
and having the slits parallel to the edge or length wise down the board is the normal way, for more precise lengthwise adjustments. if anyone else with these offset discs or the same bindings could chime in it would be much appreciated.
thanks.
sorry for the kinda thread jack.

You use the Shift Disc to move the bindings forward if you have a small foot. The beta's don't give you the option to move your heel cup forward so the only way to do it is to use the discs and move the entire binding forward. This pretty much sucks because if you're riding the larger binding and have a size 9.5 the toe ramp will stick like a cm off the board just to get the boots centered. Pretty shitty design IMO. My bro just bought these bindings and he rides a 9.5 and uses the shift disk with the slots parallel with the board, as in the picture, and it centers the boot perfectly.
