Womens snowboard bindings to fit DC Karma boots
 
Hello all,

I just recently purchased new DC snowboarding boots because my Burton ones had gotten way too small, and now it seems as if I have to jam the boots into the Burton bindings to even get them to fit. I assumed that Burton bindings would work with any brand boot, and not just Burton, but the DC's are much wider and more bulky than the burton boots I had. The boots will fit into the bindings, but I have a feeling it may be a pain when on the MTN with struggling to get them to go in the bindings. Should I purchase new bindings, or try to find some burton boots that will work? I really like the DC boots, because they are much more comfortable than the Burton ones I had. What brand bindings work well with DC boots? as far as I can tell, DC does not make bindings.

Any advice is appreciated,

Thanks!
Rachel

Hi and welcome!

I've never owned/ridden a Burton binding but have noticed (mostly around here) that fit as you've described is a common issue.

If you've found boots that fit well and ones you love, stay with the boot and try for different bindings. Don't sacrifice boot fit/comfort. Find a binding to fit your boot instead.

My 32 boots (wider toe box) fit perfectly in both pairs of my Union bindings. Snug but not tight, no jamming them in there. Definitely worth looking into; I've been super happy with Union.

Thanks for the advice, and I will definitely check out Union bindings and see if they will work! I find it very bizarre that DC makes every product for snowboarding besides bindings.

Thanks again,

Rachel

Have u made any adjustments? or is the problem just with the width of the sole?

ranger928 02-15-2014 12:17 PM

No I haven't. I thought about going by the shop to adjust them and see if that will help, but wasn't sure if that would completely solve the problem. Yes it is the width, and over all the boots are just much more bulky than Burtons.

The issue could also be that I have S/M bindings and the boots are size 8 and from what I can tell S/M is made to fit sizes 3-6, do you know if this is correct?

Hmm, perhaps? According to Burton's size chart: Small for sizes 4-6; Med for 6-8.

Best bet is go to a local board shop with boots in hand and try different bindings. See what fits the boot best and what best fits the flex/comfort you're looking for. Or, also bring your current bindings and let them have a look. Hopefully there are good shops in your area.

Thank you! I will give that a try and see what I can find out, because I really want to try out my new boots:)
