Forward stance with canted footbeds
I havent been able to find much info about this from the goog. Can anyone share some general rules?
Alpine guys with their extreme foward stance all have adjustable canting in their fancy bindings, so canting has benefits in foward stance as well.
I used to a be foward stance guy for decades. +30 +15.
Its only in the past decade that I went duck (+15, -9) and never looked back.
Its easier to carve with foward stance, but duck is so much less fatiguing and its easier to switch, freestyle, etc.
Forward stances as mentioned forward stances are superior for carving... but make it a bit harder to ride switch or absorb bigger landings as you angles creep up - I've ridden switch and landed a small 20 ft jumps with my angles at 55/50 - I would NOT recommend it unless you are really bored like me ;). Although looking at the current top level Boardercross riders... they are all forward stances and are hitting big jumps too...
I currently ride 15,-12 or 15,-15 on my park board and ride like 18,6 on my freeride board. As you move your angles forward you are going to using your toe/heel movements less and more hip/knee movements.
Thanks everyone for the input.
