    Posted: Dec/24/2010 at 11:06pm
I've never heard of a personal experience with risers but I really want to try them. Everytime I bring up risers to my local boardshop when I get anything new the staff always turn down using them but they dont have personal experience. They say just adjust my bindings but I have literally done every (comfortable) tweak possible and I can not eliminate my toe drag(I wear a size 13, 12 in some boots).
 
My question is, has anybody used risers before and may I get your opinions on them? I ride
park mainly with minimal pow days a year, maybe 6-12 pow days a season seeing as I live in socal.
 
Thanks in advance

I dont know of anyone who rides on risers.  You want to be as close the the board as possible and for that reason people either deal with the toe drag or get a wider board. What board do you ride most of the time?
I make handmade longboards PM me for info.

I have some for sale but I recommend a wide board. I think they mess with the flex of the board.

What is the waist width on the board you are riding?  Risers just seem like they would eliminate board feel and make for an awkwardly elevated ride...if that makes any sense.

I have a friend who rode them on his super model and loved them but then it was a 160-something and he basically didn't ever ride park with it, I'd say get a wider board.

I know all the effects and why you dont want them I just want an opinion from somebody who has actually used them.
 
idk the waist width of my board off the top of my head its an Artifact size 156, I'm not new to the sport, I am just really tired of having toe drag that hinders taking a nice, hard turn. Its really annoying to get my toes stuck in the snow and I have to fight to get them out and regain my board. idk if anybody else knows what Im talking about but it happens more in slush and if you do know then you know how annoying it is.
 
To the dude selling the risers, I may be interested when I get the money, I'm taking a trip to utah starting thursday so it is going to have to wait a week or so. Also how did you feel while using the risers?
 
And I can't get a wider board till next season at the earliest. I have other things to replace that are more crucial than just bothersome toedrag.

I came across this post when searching the web for taller risers. I've been snowboarding for 20 years. I've ridden narrow boards without risers, wide boards without risers, and narrow (normal) boards with risers. I have size 14 boots, and know exactly what you are talking about. I liked wide boards in deep powder (except in the trees), but overall I much prefer a normal board cut. They really handle so much better than wide boards, and considering I ride a 172cm in the powder, I have no problems staying afloat. I use the Palmer plates, identical to the one's Timmary_650 is selling (on both my 164 park board and 172 powder board), and I never noticed any difference in board flex. What I did notice was a huge decline in sliding out of a high speed carve on a groomed trail due to toe or heal drag. That being said, I still get some toe drag and want taller one's...no luck finding any, though. I'd say try some out before investing in a wide board...they're very cheap in comparison.

This is the solution to all your problems:

It's the best binding riser out on the market, which is a product I made myself after dealing with all the issues I've had myself of having larger feet (size 15, big foot ><). I had tried all the risers and a mix of wider boards and risers and nothing really worked for me. So I decided to create something myself to fix the issue. This item distributes the weight directly throughout the board so there is no weird board flex, as well as giving you the extra lift you need to keep your boots from digging into the snow on those sharp carves. 

I promise you that the edge risers will improve your riding experience. You can use any narrow board you want without losing any of your edging ability and keeping you from skipping out with toe drag :)

I hope my efforts in developing this product brings you all a better caving ability!

Get a mid-wide or wide and your problems solved, My brother rides 13 boots and always goes with wide boards. Go couple centimeters shorter if you want since you have the extra surface area.

If you are somehow a featherweight with size 13 feet, maybe do a midwide.
