So I wear an 11.5 boot and am looking at some new bindings. What I don't want to have to do is center my bindings (toe vs heel heavy) with the disc sliding perpendicular to the board. Anybody know if Union L/XL will be centered with my boot size?
After playing with my bindings this morning I realized that my Ride bindings that required I buy XL for 11.5 were heel heavy. I never really noticed it because I didn't ride them much, but when I turned the discs, I was limited on stance width options when I changed the disc, which really makes for issues. Basically I ride with a width around 23-23.5in but was limited to 22.75-23.75 which both feel slightly too little and too much. Any suggestions?
I didn't use a tape measure or anything but my union chargers look to be almost perfectly centered with my 11.5 boots in them. They were slightly heel heavy with the heel loop all the way out so i set the heel loop in towards the toe and let out the straps accordingly.
i have to have my binding disks perpendicular because my toes hang way too far off otherwise. i don't see the big deal in just setting it up that way. unless you want to adjust your stance down to the millemeter
Very few bindings have an adjustable heel cup anymore - which sucks.
If you can find some Forum Republics they have it and can be adjusted a lot. The Rome 390s have a little adjustability but not much.
Out of all of my bindings the NOW Selects seem to have a "center" that fits my boards better than any other binding. But they aren't adjustable.
I personally would rather ride my stance a half inch narrower or wider before changing it heelside to toeside. The "POP" in most boards is such a narrow and fickle zone that it disappears quicker when you shift your bindings off the sweet spot heelside to toeside.
