Default Raiden 0

Hello all, I am new here and new to snowboarding. (Only been 4 times) I have having a little trouble with these bindings. When I tighten down the toe strap it seems to crush down the toe box on my back foot. No matter how I adjust it when i tighten it down it crushes in the toe box on the outside of my back foot. Do I need bigger bindings or a more narrow boot. I have atomic sniper boots in size 9.5 and size M Raiden 0 binding. Sorry for the long post and any help would be great.

I know this sounds a little dumb, but don't crank it. Ride developed the Contraband v-strap based on the theory that your toestrap does maybe 15% of the work of your whole binding. So, just tighten down your toestrap till its snug enough to keep the toes of your boot against the footbed when you yank up on it. It will take some getting used to but you'll get a feel for the snugness you need.

Also, if you're not using it cap style, do that, it will help.

I started to kind of use it as a cap. I guess more riding will help with that feel. Not much left in the season here in Indiana, but I am trying to get out a few more times. Are==ny good boots you would recommend that would be good for a fast progresser? Normal arch but a narrower foot. I have been reading just about every thread in the boot section trying to find something that would be good for a narrow foot. I started hitting rails last time out and also enjoy just cruising around all over the hill so needs something that will allow me to do both.

Boots are too hard without seeing your foot. The most common boots to fit narrow feet so far are some of the Burtons and Salomon.

Really gotta try them on though.


Yeah toestrap is designed as a cap with the capability of top of the toe. Better as a cap, and for me it was one of the more comfy caps.
