    Posted: Mar/14/2013 at 12:23pm
Welcome. After a few years, it's time to replace the board, yesterday I got a Burton Lipstick 2013 and Burton Lexa EsT binding. Riding on Goofie. Question for you, what angle do you recommend? I want to change to something new. I've always had Left Right = 22 degrees: 13 degrees. What do you think of a duck? Is this a good idea and what angles? I'll be grateful for suggestions. In the meantime I'm going to unpack ... Wink

I'm confused. I need to see if the old bonds do not have a reverse. As it turns out that a few years riding the wrong set angles, I'll break down. i'm goofie for sure.

monika - the search function on the web site sucks.  Use Google in the following manner:

In the search field type in what you are looking for followed by site:www.trusnow.com

For example:

binding angles site:www.trusnow.com

Much better than the search function here.

the general thumb rule is a combination of 30.

so if you're 21 on the front foot, then 9 in the back. or 18 in the front and 12 in the back. But thats a thumb rule so you dont have to exactly follow it.

If youre looking for a new stance id recommend adjusting one foot at a time, in a small increment. itll be weird at first, but try riding like that for the day and see what you think. I used to be 21 in the front for the longest time, but I've changed to 18 and i like that much more.

also the bindings are typically in increments of 3 degrees. 3, 6, 9, 12 etc...  unless you have burton est's which you can adjust to single increments.

I think the combination of 30 idea is dumb it doesn't even make sense, if we're all different, and all ride different stances, why would all of us using  different combinations of angles to make thirty degrees even make sense?

Although I agree that it the combination of 30 isn't for all of us, I think 15/15  would be a good start then just do small adjustments after that.

This should be a sticky..   The search for TruSnow sucks not only for the forums but also in trying to find products to purchase.

Don't over-think it, start with something like front 12, back -12 and ride for a while.  See how it feels.  Adjust in the lodge, try front 15, back -9.  Ride some more, see how it feels, adjust if needed.  Lather, rinse and repeat. 

Do this enough and you will dial in your angles.  Last season I started my girlfriend at 12/-12 and after a few changes she ended up at something like 15/3 (yes, positive on the back foot).  This season she's asking why her angles aren't duck (well, did you forget what we did last season, sweetheart?), so we did it all over again.  I can't even remember what her angles are now...

Well the 30 thumb rule was just a guideline to help folks out. Like already mentioned its not for everyone and doesnt have to be exactly 30.

You can also try standing on the board with no bindings and mark where your feet are at with tape. Then compare it to your binding angles and see if it similiar. You can adjust from there and see what you like. Youre really going to have to just try it for yourself. We cant tell you whats comfortable. Thats up to you.

instead of follow the so-called rule of thumb. this is how i done with my angle: put on your boots, unscrew your bindings off your board. then strap in the bindings, stand at your comfortable stance, and then slightly bend your knees, as you go down, your feet will point to the angle that your body feel comfortable (you can even squat on it if that's how you ride). repeat that a few times, secure your bindings, and repeat. if it feels good and natural while you standing on it. you close to finding your perfect angle. of course, you might have to adjust that once you get out riding, but this will give you a better idea of how your body feel instead of restrict yourself with someone else idea.

a lot of reading but hope it help. and have fun on the trip.
hmmm... Now What???

Hi there !  Now i can say something about it. How i said first time i make-9 back, 15 front - for me sucks. Then i had make how bataleon155 said. it was something like -12 back, front 21. And now after small adjust i have  -16 back and 21 front. Now i feel full control over board. i have also moved front  little bit to back. maybe it's the right moment to say: I found right angles for me:). ps. i didn't know before that the angles also depend on the type of board (rocker/ camber). greetings from Ischgl.
