I was wondering about the binding back adjustment, different angle for riding style? Surface?
Very interesting subject matter. On the one hand I find that heel side turns have such a strong locked in feel to them when I pressure the high backs. On the other hand the toe side does not deliver quite the same quickness. since the knees and ankles hinge forward I don't need or want that same positive locked in feel toe side.
Ive ridden low backs and zero forward lean and not found it any great handicap however it seems like in heavy snow or slush I would definitely miss my high back. Most newer boots are much stiffer
than the boots we used to ride. I have also noticed some with forward lean built into the boot as well. These boots would seem to supplant the high backs.
Let us know if you get to use your no-backs in heavy snow Jonah D.
