390 boss

Hey guys,

I just bought a pair of rome 390 boss' and I am having trouble dialling them in. the ratchet on the toe strap when I do it up is squashing my boots(32tm two) near my little toe, which I can feel.

I am size 11 and bought the L/XL, I have them set at M which is for 10-12.5 from memory. Any one had this problem and know how I may be able to sort it out?

Cheers

Hard to tell from description, but you have 2 options to move the ratchet location -- you can move the straps forward/back in the detents on the binding, or you can shift the toe-strap pad left/right on the straps. One or the other should move it away from the pressure point.

I'm assuming you're going over the top of your boot.

The sizing sounds right. I'm a size 10 and I have the same size binding as you.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

How are you wearing the toe strap? As a cap or over the top?

You can adjust the inner ladder and lengthen it a bit more so the strap reaches a little further than your little toe.

Posting pictures would be optimal.

I wear the toe strap as a cap. I have tried all the above and even when I put the toe strap over the top it still digs into my boot.

Here's a pic but it is difficult to make out.

Thanks
