Default Quick binding positioning help

Hey so i have a question about the positioning of my bindings. I noticed as i strapped into my 390s on my new board that my heel had quite some hang over and my toe had none at all. Now I was wandering if it is okay to rotate my base plate and move my bindings forward a tad to even out the toe/heel difference some. Will this throw off the centered weight of the board? Because when i had them normally on the board the baseplates were centered, now they are barely off centered towards my toe edge. so any information on this will help out a lot. thanks!

It should be centered on the board, as in equal amount of hangover.

to be clearer...yes its fine to rotate your discs to allow movement along the width of the board to get your foot centered on the board...also see if you need to adjust the heel cup of the bindings to center your boot on your bindings...

first center your boot into the binding. ie equal amount toe and heel overhang on the binding itself

then posistion the bindings on the board, so that when your boots are strapped in there is equal overhang of the boots to the board


from my understanding, you can mount the discs either direction. one directiion if you want to adjust tip to tail to widen or narrow your stance a tad between the mounting locations and the other to do what you want, adjust edge to edge to get equal overhang

Good Question. The 390's have a repostional adjustment for the heel cup as well as the multi position disc.

In that case you will typically adjust edge to edge with the heelcup and save the disk adjustment for tip to tail refinement. If you cannot get a centerred position edge to edge with just heelcup then rotate the disk as well and use that extra adjustment. Centering edge to edge is by far more important. Do not concern yourself at all with centering your boot on the bindings. Your goal should be equal toe and heel overhang on the board for the boot itself at the stance width and angles that you select. Please post up some pics if you have a chance. This may take 30 minutes to get perfect but it is well worth it.

Thanks!
