Softboot riser/cant board to binding interface

Recommended Posts

Front binding at Nose

Second pic is back binding towards the nose. The bases in the front and rear interface the board 90* to the edge but taper/canteleiver a little more creating slop? Dampening? Bigger footprint board to riser? Thoughts? Experiments? Butcher block examples?

Yes. I know a very skilled engineer. Way beyond me. My stance angles on this board are 27/18. I use power plates on another board with 3* inward canting. He has made these at 21/9  with 3* pure inward canting. I just rotated my bindings a bit on these figuring the canting difference would be hard to notice. First test drive in ultra crowded conditions this weekend

How did you like the 3d printed cants?

How do they feel compared to your Power Plate setup?

i have sold my Apex Gecko Stealths as they were not as good for my liking as Bomber Power Plates. I have gone back to the Power Plates with 3 degree cants on both front and rear with my angles at +30 and +6, but I would love to find a lighter option.

cheers,

I think had I used them at their intended angles, I would have had better results. Power plates and their weight I believe add a level of dampening that is not present in the printed plates. As a result of the “over rotation” I wound up breaking them. Too much torque at the mounting point and flexing of the board under foot made for catastrophic failure. I am looking forward to trying some of Sean Martins flat risers this season.
