Soft boot riser/lifter question

Recommended Posts

On the rare occasions I venture out on a soft boot setup I have a major problem with boot-out (mostly on the heel side) when carving. I used to have the angles set so that it wasn't a problem but I'm working on riding switch and doing little pop 180s and I reset the bindings to a more conventional stance. I ride a K2 Zeppelin with Burton Step-Ins. My feet are size 11. I called my local board shop and was told that they sell Burton Riser Plates for $59.95 (with adaptors for 3 or 4 hole). Is that a good price and will that eliminate the problem?

Much obliged,

Pat

If you're interested, I've a pair of 2cm Palmer Plates in excellent condition that I'd be happy to sell for $30 plus shipping (retail for $50+ new). Comes with all mounting hardware. Will fit both three- and four-hole bindings.

They will definitely give you additional clearance to avaoid heelside boot-out and also provide additional leverage to tilt the board on edge.

Let me know if you'd like to try them.

I would go with the taller palmer plates. The burtons are too low. I run the palmers on my donek incline and they work well to a degree. Another solution would be to buy a donek sasquatch...great for carving and you can spin 180s too lol. :biggthump

BTW if you want burton lifters i have a set i can sell you for less than new. (never used)

Thanks to both of you. I picked up a set of the Burtons on Friday. The kid in the shop assures me I'll eliminate the boot out problem. We'll see.

I'm in Wyoming at the moment and won't get a chance to try them until I get back east.
