Raiden Phantom Binding Sizing

I'm most likely going to pick up some of the 2012 raiden phantoms for my bindings this year but I'm having the dillema of which size to get. The sizing chart on EVO.com says the mediums go from 7.5-10.5 US and the larges go 11-14 US. In my old bindings, they listed as large for 10+ US and they were pretty big for my size 11 K2 Raider boot. Should I size down for the mediums or go with the size chart and get the larges?

It's always hard to say when you're on the border. The Raiders aren't the slimmest profiled boot so you're likely better in the larger size, but I would email Raiden to see what they say.

Hi Suicide,

You want the Larges for sure. The heelcup slides forward for sizing as you can see toward the back of the picture. Size 11 (depending on the boots) will usually be in a center position on the slide. On the medium bindings the slide would likely (again depending on the boots) be maxed out and would make centering on the deck much harder. Also the range on the Medium tops out at 10.5, but that actually seems a bit larger than the boot size we can comfortably get in there and the Large will easily go smaller than 11.

Awesome! Great detailed response there. I didn't even know the heelcup had adjustments by boot size.
Also, Nitro e-mailed me back saying go with larges so I'm going with larges. Thanks for the advice everyone!

I just got this years Phantoms size L. My Nitro Team TLS size 10.5US boots seem a little bit small for these bindings. They hold my boots secure and everything but when I slide the heelcup all the way in Im getting a little bit more heel overhang than toe. Will this be a problem? They came with the Raiden mini disc which cant be adjusted towards the edges of the board. Are there different kind of disks available for this binding?

the bullshit with raiden is that their Medium is more of a Small/Medium than what you would expect given the actual size of their Large

So you think its possible that the medium would be too tight? What about this minidisc? Does Raiden have a different disc which can be shifted towards the toes a little? still waiting for them to answer my email...

i buy stuff from other people when i dont get email responses, or if i get one that is automated, or sounds like its from a 3rd grader.

i may not capitalize my wordz n shit, but i'm not selling goods on the interwebz either.

seriously we've had email for how long?

wired is such a legit poster here that i would go with the bindings just because he is awesome... i mean i dont expect burton to write to you about their bindings, but they sell themselves.

i'm sure some people would defend these companies, but raiden is overshadowed by at least what...a half dozen binding companies...or more....how many emails can they possibly get that they can't respond to.

some shit really gets me going, and its just me and my rant but yea...
