Adjusting the straps depends on your riding style. By shortening the straps, more ski pressure is applied, better handling and tighter turns, but less track on the ground, loss of traction during excellaration. Not dagerously less, but less. We ride a twisty river here, and a premimum is placed on turns, so I adjusted my straps by 2 1/2" which required drilling new holes. The next step is to shorten the front shock travel with internal spacers. Not as much top end, but better turning.
