Post subject: Burton Freestyle Bindings - Achy Calves! Posted: Oct 08, 2011 - 12:11 PM

I demo'd these bindings for a good 1 hour + with no achyness! Now I've started using them for 2 hour sessions I start to get an aching sensation in both calves.
I've never had this problem before, so I'm just wondering if it's the way they are set up?
Any help appreciated.

I'd have a play around with angles of your highbacks, it sounds like they either have too much or too little angle on them. Next time you're at a dome, take some time to alter the various parts of the bindings and see how it affects both your control and comfort.
I had these as my first pair of bindings and can't fault them, fairly soft as you would expect for a binding called freestyle, but good enough for a good stompbround the pistes too.

Altho womens high backs are different to mens, I get achy calfs if I have too much forward lean.
