Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
The ski isn't symmetric. Mounting the ski backwards will give you the +1 or +2 feel you want, and you will still be centered at the radius of the ski, which is ideal for carving.
If you mount +2 forward from centre, you will be fighting the natural radius of the ski, and having to do more work to make the ski work/carve.
chill guy, I ment it "in theory"
