So, when using risers, wouldn't you lose some height on the heel unless you used a riser for the climbing bar, too? I'm a bit curious about this, as initially when I saw the risers I thought I could possibly benefit form them. I wear a size 11, but the only time my toes hit the board is on steep climbs with fresh snow, where the snow clumps up under my toes from breaking trail.

The risers include both touring bracket and heel plates.

Though one aspect that may prove troublesome are crampons, with the added rise will you have less bite or control?


Perhaps one could use the 130mm Voile Ski Crampon:

I would contact Voile just to be sure 130mm Voile Ski Crampon will fit correct under the slider plate with raise pucks.
