Well. i haven't tried the new bindings yet, so i can't say anything on it. Anyway, i don't think i'd rotate bindings often. and i can do it at home the day before ride.

now let's compare this with other typical bindings that use a disc cover that screws on

4 mounting screws + 1 screw

hmm.


yep, clearly 9 or 7
I think what he's saying is he's canting the footbeds so much that he has to mess with the four cant adjustment screws just to pull the footbed off. Four cant screws + one footbed screw + four baseplate screws = nine screws. If you're canting the footbeds enough to make it hard to pull off, that's waaaaaay too much canting IMO.

Triple8Sol I've had CADs and NRCs. It is a bit of a PITA to make canting adjustments, but installing/uninstalling the bindings or adjusting your stance angle is as easy as any other binding.

legallyillegal not really (i have cads)

TLN Yes. But it has rubbered feet. And you got to pull the footbed. I thinks it'd be hard to pull(and to install it back) with footbed canted a lot.

legallyillegal the footbed canting feet are connected to the footbed itself, so no you don't have to unscrew those to rotate the binding
