11.5 and Medium size binding

Hi Guys,

I am new here on this forum, and want to start with my first thread. I'm a little bit confused , got the Cartel EST bindings (2010), my boots are 11.5 US, nitro barrage, the boots fits. Because burton's size chart says the M's are up to 11, i searched the internet, and everyone suggests the L sized binding with 11.5. I must say that my boots have a tight heel, fits in heelcup, and is not moving. So i think it will be ok.

Nevertheless, my question is, do i still wanna try the L's? What will be the difference? More space in the heel cup? Big difference in gaspedal?

grtz,
Joshua

How much toe over hang do you have? Your boot should be centered over the board with equal heel and toe overhang.

0,5" (1,5 cm max) toe and heel, centered my binding. Must say my boots got sharp bevels at the toe and heel, have to test if i get some toe drag.

Large will reduce overhang?

Grtz

No, large will give you foot more centering.

Biggest problem I've noticed with a binding that's too small is problems strapping in. The straps have to be on the biggest detent and there's very little extra strap to guide into the buckle. No biggie when you're sitting in the shop, but when you're on the slopes with gloves on and snow under your boot, it's a bit of a struggle.

I'd go back for the L's.

Large mean larger leverage, thus easier riding. My older cartel m went to 9.5 and I could compare to my brothers l. The l is much better.

K, so for instance a Burton Ruler or Moto w/e with shrinkage tech will, say 11/11.5, footsprint one size smaller will also still be better in L?

Thx for all your replies btw.
