Now tostrap slipping

I'm having an issue with my Now Brigades, which I love other than this. On almost every run when I get to the bottom I look down and the toe strap has slipped so that the top of the strap is barely still holding boot. In some cases its off, especially if I've been trying any sort of buttering or jumping.

I've adjusted it left more to give me more ladder so I can crank a bit tighter, same thing. I'm moved up and down the toe of the boot more or less, still no sweet spot. It's as if the contour of the toe strap just doesn't seem to fit quite right.

They're size 8 Rulers in size M Brigades, so while fairly small boot wise still well within range for the sizes for a medium.

lol, nice spelling toe

Lol. They tried to kill me! In all honesty while I will say I do love these, the Flows were a bit of a tolerate/hate relationship with me.

I have a pair of pilots and found the tight Now heelcup was the culprit and when I didn't get my heel back far enough into the binding, that's when it slipped down.

Oh interesting. Wasn't this an issue more with hanger 1.0? Or maybe not?

From what I've read, I think it was, but mine are 2016 with the 2.0, but still tight on the heel. Boots are Dialogue Wides.

Ok, I will take a look and see how they are fitting. I'm thinking just being standard rulers in a size that is in the lower end of the boot range for the binding this may not be it though. It does make sense though that the boot may be sliding back a bit.

Swap your caps. I switch the toe straps on every Now I ride. I wear an 8 Fuse.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I had the same issue. I have the beefiest toecaps now (recon) and no problems with them with slipping or moving while riding. They're still designed poorly for a size 8 boot and the ladder is in an awkeard position relative to the buckle teeth, meaning i have to manually align the buckle every time to get them tight, otherwise they'll just slip and kill the ladders.

run a bead of "freesole" on the inside of the toecap or on the toe of your boot for grippage.
