snovvman Posted April 4, 2005 Report Share Posted April 4, 2005 My K2 Clicker setup puts me (via my Clicker boots) very close to the surface of the snowboard when I ride. My hardboot setup, along with Deeluxe X-Bone and step-in heels, puts me much higher on the board, away from the surface of the board. Articles seem to indicate that a bit of "lift" (in this case, I mean total elevation and not toe or heel lift) offers the rider additional leverage. I'm having trouble seeing this. In terms of pure physics, I'd imagine that there comes to a point of diminishing returns--that is--if I stand so much higher, and farther away from the surface of the board, I wouldn't be able to control the board properly and I would actually lose leverage. The hardboot setup feels unnatural when I try to stand up and when I ride. I know it takes time to get use to, it just seems more "right" when I am closer to the board. Clearly, I am new at this. Someone please educate me. Thanks! JAMES. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
