I used to adjust them down every spring, until I forgot to re-adjust a pair on my GS boards for a speed event. Hit a rut as I neared the finish line, and watched the DIN 6 binding pop off. I tried to slow down on 1 ski, but fell instead, and went though the traps, on my back, at 72 MPH!!!
I didn't get hurt, but that Volkl P9 bent when it hit the snow bank on the side of the trail.
Now I just leave them adjusted.....
