Looking for lifter wedges besides Hydroturf
I have seen some that I like but don't remember where. I though Jettrim had them for runabouts but only see them on their site for stand-ups. The ones I liked didn't stick out as far & were more rounded in shape. I don't want the block shaped wedges HT makes because I'm afraid of badly injuring an anle or knee from getting my foot caught under it during an off.

Hydroturf makes a beveled set. The blocks are supposed to go on the outside edge of the footwell,not the inside. If it's on the inside, you risk busting an ankle no matter what. It should be so your outer foot is hooked under it, not your inner foot. Just in case you didn't know

I just checked their site, and don't see the beveled one there anymore. They must have discontinued them. I got mine from them about a year and a half ago. You could try calling and see if they still have them.

I use the regular Hydroturf ones on all my skis. I make sure to put them high enough that I can sort of flex my foot up to lock into place and not so low that my foot would get stuff if I was tossed.

Yeah, I've seen the beveled ones from HT. I'm looking for something similar to the ones below that Jettrim makes for the SXR. I remember the ones I liked had a colored border just like these, which is why I'm thinking they were also from JT. Guess I'll just give them a call.

OHHHH thats what those are! In the Farthing video that was posted you can see those type of wedges on his ski on takeoff. I was trying to figure out what those striped things were and now it makes sense. How do those attach to the ski?
