It’s not exactly a riser but the added height (roughly 3/4”) I got from mounting a Telebry release plate and heel piece on my Alpina Discovery 80s (80/58/69 @ 208cm) felt beneficial the few times I got out on them late last season. Definitely less snow bunching in front of my boots regardless of terrain... Looking forward to putting them through their paces real soon :)
