Pro racing riders like Michi Dabringer use angles like 54Ã‚Â° front and 48Ã‚Â° rear, so you definitely don’t want to go anywhere near 60Ã‚Â°. I use Scarpa Denali boots both on my K2 Eldo and several splitboards. At the ski area I have my Eldo set up at 40Ã‚Â° front and 35Ã‚Â° rear. My backcountry splitboards are set up anywhere from 28Ã‚Â° – 33Ã‚Â° front and 18Ã‚Â° – 20Ã‚Â° rear. I am also regular stance with a 20″ width. Even those numbers will be a big change for you from your current setup, so go slowly and gradually on dialing up the angles to see what you like. I would start out with the shallowest angles you can achieve with no boot overhang. If you are in soft snow a little bit of overhang is no big deal – it’s not like you will be booting out on a hardpacked race course. If you ride switch a lot and do tricks you won’t like the steeper angles, but if you just like riding down big mountains you don’t need the shallower or duckfoot angles.

Pro racing riders like Michi Dabringer use angles like 54Ã‚Â° front and 48Ã‚Â° rear, so you definitely don’t want to go anywhere near 60Ã‚Â°. As mentioned it largely depends on the board width – 55Ã‚Â°-50Ã‚Â° or higher is extremely common for the narrow (18-19 cm waist) alpine boards that hardboots are traditionally used with. However, if you have a wide board like a freeride board, you just need to simple avoid boot overhang whatever angles that is. Riding with high angles (over 45Ã‚Â°) does take a rather different riding technique (more knee steering than ankle flex/extension) and takes some time to get used to.

Expect to have another learning curve at different angles. It will help to run your boot cuffs a little loose at first. Good luck. November 28, 2006 at 6:36 pm #592286 tymelero 7 Posts Thanks to all. I really appreciate your feedback. I am looking forward to the new setup. Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
