Nivek I think auto cant is more or less for landings and high pressure. If you're just standing in it or just riding around you probably aren't really engaging it that much. But upon landing that inside section is going to collapse easier keeping the torque off your knees.

I rode the EXs (wedgie 1.5) and very briefly the SPIs (wedgie 3.0).

Liked them both (the EX more). I definitely noticed the canting on the SPIs and was aware of it on the EXs -- especially when switching out with no-cant bindings.

I am riding the same stance width (which I can't recall at the moment) +12/-12 with the Cartels. What can I say, I don't notice the canting, but definitely don't feel the discomfort I used to get with a non-canted binding. So, hocus-pocus or otherwise, the auto-cant works (at least for me).

I rode the early release Cartels (have mostly ridden Rides previously) yesterday, first experience with the "autocant". As it happens, I didn't notice anything. I didn't feel it at all. I also didn't feel any knee ache.

Hell, I didn't notice the bindings at all. Exactly what I want from a binding.

What bindings you talking about? The Malavitas/Cartels? Or the Rome 390s? The 390s have interchangeable pads.

Lester86 I got a pair in today definitely no canting atleast not from what i can see this whole auto canting does not work like the reg stuff from what I hear, I don't wanna throw them on and then realize it don't do nothing then I'm stuck with them :-/ they should advertise this as a 2.5 degree canting system

Maybe. Either way, I didn't feel anything.
