Ride Delta MVMT Problem (with 32 Primes)

So today I bought some 32 Primes and they fit and feel great.

The problem I'm having though is when I strap into my board (on carpet) with 2011 Ride Deltas, the back of the boot is slipping against the highback creating heel lift between the boot and the binding.

I tried cranking the ankle strap down until I can't feel my foot anymore (not that I would ride with it like that), and the problem still exists. I can get a whole finger under my boot when I lean hard.

I am using the toe strap as a cap strap.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks

1. You probably wont produce enough torque to duplicate this result while riding. I can do the same thing on the carpet in my Flows and don't have problems on the mountain.

2. Is your boot centered in the binding. Deltas have zero adjustability in the ramp and heelcup, if you don't have a good fitting boot in the binding in a good size, they're a pain. Something they have adressed for next year.

If 2 is your issue, return and get Nitranes, similar feel but they are adjustable.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Thanks for the quick reply.

1 -> Yeah, I'm thinking the only time this may be reproduced on the hill is on a hard toe side stop.

2 -> The boots do seem to be centered nicely in the binding.

It's almost as if there isn't enough friction between the boot and the highback.

Do you think it's worth trying to put something sap-like onto the back of my boots? Or just say screw it and ride like it is?

Probably over thinking it - I tend to do that sometimes...

Is your highback decently aligned with the lean in your boot? You might want to add some forward lean on the highbacks if this is not the case.

In the end, the only way to truly tell is with an actual run. Do a bunny hill run if you are that concerned.

the highback padding is not providing enough friction.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

Yeah, it's pretty annoying - tried it on the hill today. It's just like having a heel lift problem, but one that's harder to fix.

I tried adjusting the forward lean, but still had the same result. It really doesn't take much for the boot to come up. Bindings are quite tight too.
