Risers

Hey everybody, I'm someone new here. I just joined but I've been creeping for a good month. Well last year I just bought a new board (Rossignol Sultan) and I love it but I wear a size 13.5 boot and I get straight heel toe drag like crazy. I was wondering if anyone has tried using binding risers to eliminate some of the drag. If you've had good or bad experiences with them I'd appreciate the feedback.


Later,
Will

What's the waist width on the board, For a feet size like that you would need a wide board.

Honestly I'm not sure off the top of my head. But my toes are off the board a good inch and a half. But I love the board and would hate to sell it. My heels have yet to catch but if I carve in hard I can feel it on my toes.

The board doesn't fit you. Get a wide board, you'll be much happier in the long run.

Agree with wide but I have also used risers. I used to use the Palmer PLS risers on my standard width boards and they definitely reduced toe drag and also added some leverage when cranking turns. If you are looking for some I could sell you mine for cheap because I dont use them anymore

I agree with everyone that you should've gotten a wide board. However, have you centered your boots/bindings on the board. What angles are you using for your bindings?

Yeah, I'd check and make sure the bindings are centered if you're dragging the toe but not the heel. Strap your boots in, then center the bindings so that the overhang is equal on the toe and the heel.

Have you thought of riding duck (ie +15 / -15)? This will help with the toe drag.

Also, you haven't mentioned whether your boots/bindings are centered on the board. This will help your situation as well.
