Should delta angle change for differnt slope angles

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Not sure if I put this question in the right section ?

 

 My question is the ideal delta angle, effected by the degree of angle of the slope being skied ?

 

 The steeper the slope would it not be better to have less delta angle then on a gentler slope ?

 

  Thanks, guys

all of your boot and ski set-up angles are only relative to you. changing delta in the binding depends on your physiology and your gyroscopic ability to balance over your feet.

 

play around with your set-up and report back to us what you find. pictures and video please.

 Thanks, Jim

 

 No snow pics will be awhile

 

 I do not really have the luxury of having a profesional like yourself examine stance before purchase so I know the proper delta angle I should be set up with.

 

 Getting knee bindings Iam not sure if I can get more then one pair of differnt size spacers for under toe of boot with the binding, without buying another set.

 

 I was thinking of using a thickness of spacer based on which ever gave me closest to same amout of weight on toe of boot to the heal when standing in ski stance. But if I do this from a flat floor it is not the same angle as the slope I ski but I cant seam to picture in my mind if the body would automaticaly adjust so that the perfect delta angle on the flat would also be the perfect angle on an angle of the slope.
