Are these centered nicely? [Pics]
3 Attachment(s)
Just been messing with my bindings a little bit. My boots were centered well in the bindings but not quite on the board, there was a little more heel overhang than on the toe. So I adjusted the heelcup forward one notch, and took pics to see what you guys thought. How does it look, is it all centered ok?

In the first pic it looks a little toe heavy, but in the others it seems about even. It's a bit hard to tell for sure.

Try taking a picture straight on from the bottom of the board to see exactly how much of the boot is over ea. edge of the board.

Here's a few more pics. I agree it looks a little toe heavy, but when I moved the heelcup forward a notch, it looks a little bit heel heavy. Not sure quite which direction to go with it haha.

Tough to tell from pics. Take a run on it and you'll know. If you're toe heavy, it'll be hard to get on your heel edge. If you're heel heavy, it'll be hard to get on your toe edge.

try riding...but mark the center-line on the board, then find the centerline of your foot, then your boot and lastly your binding.....and align or stack them up...really fairly easy to do.

generally the centerline of your foot is the high part of your arch or drop a line from the front edge of your shin bone where it meets the ankle (inside your boot).

Is the heel cup adjusted all the way out? You can see there is a little more toe over hang on the toe ramp but hard to tell if there is more toe over hanging the board. If you loosen those large screws to adjust the heel cup make sure you use the correct size screw driver, those things have loctite and is easy to strip with a small screw driver.

Well judging from that first in the second set of pictures you look good. Certainly close enough to go out and ride it and see if it feels okay. Centering doesn't have to be perfectly, exactly centered.

You just don't want it so far one way or the other that it makes it hard to transfer from edge to edge.

a good way to test it to place a screwdriver from the heel of your boot and the other end on the heel edge, then do the same with the toe of the boots and the toe edge. the angle of the screwdriver should be similar in the toe and heels in order for it to be centered.

hope that makes sense :/

The best way to "find center" for you is to ride the board and pay attention to how responsive your heel and toe turns are in comparison. But for me the most important thing is finding that "sweet spot" around center where the board just pops the best.

Does anybody else think the bindings could be a little bigger? There seems to be a lot of toe sticking out in front of the toe ramp. I'm comparing to my bindings which are K2 Company size XL with a boot size 11, so maybe my bindings are too big!
