Are the touring raiser due to large feet?

Let us know hoe the risers effect the touring.

Thanks

Sweet! Mines done too but it's a designated low angle deep day board. I did hold off splitting it until I did a few laps at the Basin on it. Felt solid, carved well but the early rise would take some getting used to.

Indeed they are. It gives me more room under my toe if I'm forward on the ski. I also set them 1-2cm off center towards the nose to give me some tip rise when I'm in deep powder. Made a huge difference.

The board is a frickin party in deep powder. Oh man super responsive and floats like no other. Very pleased with its performance.

Probably, but I don't mind. I don't know anything else. The day will come when I move on from my DIY, til then, it's all training.

Looks good reminds me of my Experience (to lazy for pics). I used 8 heli-coils (4 for the lifters and 4 for the touring bracket). If you went with custom pucks you could get to 4 t-nuts total. But non of this will make a difference to the ride, thus this post is meaningless.

Splitinbend this board does in fact slay powder. Just took mine out the other day.

I didn't have high expectations for this board. Truthfully, it showed up a. Week after the beerfest here in Bend to my surprise. But after checking my bank account I did buy it while completely bombed. Turned out to be an amazing board in all conditions, especially powder.

After riding this board in pow, I have yet to change my stance. What I would have done differently is not gone for the universal option and minimize weight. Next time.
