Very. Used it through part of the 90s. Got back to it last year and will never go back to flat. Use 4° on front and rear, or 4° front and 5° rear (depends on board).

Am I the only person in the world that rides positive angle on both feet anymore?

Haven't rode canted since I got rid of my 1992 Burton Air 6.1 with the metal cant plate under the rear binding - so I guess not that important.

scottb7 Yeah canting is fine, and good. But when is union going to have a hinge disk? Seems like only game in town is burton with re:flex now that forum is being discontinued.

Dago91 Just switched from a 2.0 cant to a 3.5 cant. Honestly I can not tell the difference my knees still feel the same at the end of the day which is great no pain! So I prob will keep with the 3.5.. more cant the better.

I would rather my canting be in the bindings than the board... what if I wanted to ride a different board size, shape, camber for different conditions??

How dies it fix the issue of static canting exactly? It doesn't.

Union has never been complicated.

Nice job being a useless addition on you 11th post.

This season I've ridden my malavitas as usual but also new cartels and K2 formulas. I've not had any knee pain with any of them. Not noticed the effects of Burton autocant vs. K2 static at all really. Makes me wonder what the actual benefit of autocant is and whether it's there at all...
Yes. One of my bad habits is driving more off my big toe instead of my whole forefoot and that was something I always liked about canting was that it helped me get my pressure evened out. I get a similar effect from AutoCant.

Seems to be thru and across the front of the knee, right below the knee cap, and some to the L lateral (outside.) I haven't noticed any pain in R (rear foot) knee. (even tho I regularly do a few turns switch on many of my laps.) There was pain in that knee near the end of my 1st 1.5 season. At that time, I was riding my Arbor exclusively at about 20-21" wide and +21˚ / -9˚.

The foam pads I used for the canting are firm density, appx. 3/16ths thick and I didn't sand or angle them. I covered the outside 1/3 or so of the bindings foot beds to achieve the angle. Couldn't tell you with any certainty what degree of cant, but would guess it's less than 2˚.

Apologies if that's TMI! Just trying to account for all the variables.
Consistent pain in that area with that drastic stance differences sounds more to me like you need better fitting boots or custom insoles to get everything aligned right. That's where'd I'd start next.

Justin 1. Binding Brand & Model You Currently Ride: Targa, 390 boss, formula


2. Width & Angles: 26 inches, 18 -18


3. Generalize up your riding type (all-mtn, jibber, eurocarver, etc):Everything, depends on conditions.


4. How old are you, and how long have you been an active snowboarder: 30, 4 years


5. How important is canting to you? I haven't ridden no cant for a while. I should slap some 0 degrees in one of my bindings to try it again. I usually recommend my friends to get a pair of romes so they can try canting if they have never used it and they are getting bindings.
