That is because you only dangle. No offense.Toby wrote:How about very loose straps and trying to crash in a way that you don't put pressure onto your feet?
That's why I explained it on my Airstyle DVD, that the risk of getting injured is less this way.
Works for me so far since 13 years. Knock-knock
It's a good question and one I think we have to answer empirically. aaron hadlow was injury free for 12 years never got an acl tear until he went to boots got one that same year. Kevin langeree got his acl injury in straps in 2010. youri zoon got his acl torn twice once in 2007 and once in 2008 in straps, as far as I know alex paster never got an acl tear and he rides boots. ruben lenten had the worst injury of his career in straps and has still not recovered completely with a broken ankle. Bruna Kajiya switched to boots and tore her acl. I watched a friend of mine tear his acl. He had been riding in straps for about 10 years, and occasionally switched to boots to unhook. It looked like absolutely nothing, landed a bit awkward, and the next thing I see is him body dragging back to shore.ralfiboy wrote: Why would boots put any more stress on your knees?
