Hi All - I'm a lady rider, buying my first split set up. I picked up a pair of Spark R&D Magneto bindings as my resort Burtons are not compatible with the GNU Splitboard I got. Question I have is -- is any one familiar with riding canted degree binding? I need pucks for the Tesla system ad Voile sells canted or flat pucks. I know when I ride my resort boards I often feel myself wishing my bindings were canted to decrease overall fatigue and strain....but I never actually have tried riding with it set up that way.

Is it a preference thing (is there a chance I'll hate it)?
Is there any downsides in performance?
Any specific conflicts with the Tesla system?

Thanks!

Its personal preference. From the sounds of it you should give it a try

I rode the new Voile 3 deg cant pucks while in Japan.
I had to make my own screws as the ones in the kit are too short, the only issue I found was that the puck bevel on the screw head is not parrallel with the deck.
Used with Fitwells and Burners.
No clearance issues with the Burners but not sure with Afterburners

I run 5 deg on my hardboot setup, so i'm used to the cant.

Give them a go if you ride cant on your resort board.

Cheers
