Burton Elevator binding riser!

Anyone tried the Burton elevator riser? Made for big foot riders to ride a normal board and or for anyone who wants to transfer heel/toe edge energy more precise.

Just looking for reviews.

Unless you really REALLY need them, avoid risers like the black plague.

Yes and without going into a list, I'd rather be brutaly raped my an AIDS infected gorilla than use a riser again.

thats funny if you read or even look on you tube they state that the rising of bidings helps transfer heel and toe edge energy and makes sense as for a physics.

well dont use youtube for information lol. it would physically make sense if it was all on one piece, no flex or absorption. but realistically it usually doesnt happen like that...

i hear better about the palmers, but if you can a new board would be the best choice..

Exactly... they are trying to sell the product to you. I used risers in the days when the only wide snowboard was the Fat Bob. They suck... you have no board feel, and in terms of the leverage factor, I wouldn't say that was as much of an issue but you just don't get the response due to the lack of feel. It's hard to explain unless you've used them, but just buy a wide board. You will have the same response edge to edge as a normal size foot on a narrower board... if your foot is bigger and the board is bigger you do the math
