I've been working on a snowboard binding design and am looking to see what people think of it. The binding has a hinge which allows it to pivot along the length of the board (tip to tail) about 5 to 10 degrees. The hinge allows a shin strap to be put on the highback which gives support on toe edge turns (without the hinge you can't shift your weight tip to tail). Toe edge support is taken out of the board and your leg and is put in the binding. Here's one picture and I have some more up at www.rockerbinding.com . Let me know what you think.
