rome 390 boss toe strap adjustment
 
So I wear a size 9.5 boot, when I was picking up my rome bindings I decided to go for the S/M size binding as it would be smaller and lighter. So I got the bindings on my board and everything is solid minus my toe strap not being long enough to strap in. Is there anyway to extend the length of the toe strap on these bindings?

did you already extended the toe strap all the way already? or you haven't mess with anything on it yet?

I haven't messed with the toe strap at all, not sure how to extend the toe strap on these bad boys.. I tried to pull the buckle on the actual toe strap (not too hard) and it wouldn't budge, kind of scared of breaking them and not sure if they where meant to be unbuckled :dunno:

I had to do the same thing on my 390's. They are tough the first time but will open. Just try and be careful, just to be safe. The last thing I want is for you to rip it open and cause hell. Realistically? Chances are slim.

Crank it open. After the first time it will be easier.

There is an adjustment buckle on the inner ladder. Pull that sucker open and move the strap up more on the ladder.

Sorry for jumping in here, but i got a general question about the 390 boss bindings.

Would a size 8 boot be too small for a L/XL 390 binding? I know M/L goes up to 9 and L/XL starts at 9 and up.

you can shoot out an email to rome on their site and they'll let you know... Just wondering why you'd want to use L/XL with size 8 boots? I wear 9.5 boots and got M/L bindings

Also be aware that there are two position that the toe strap can inner ladder can be in. Annoyingly mine keep ending up in the shorter one which is a pain to adjust every time I strap in.

Also I'm finding I have to crank the straps to the point where they start to deform the boot to get them to stay put. I've had them slip off to the top a few times. I've been careful to get a got left to right position and also place them so there is good tension across the toe and both edges are in tension. From what I understood the toe cap on these is considered good.

Any ideas?

The weight difference is actually less than 1/2 OZ so you will never notice a difference.

+1, I have 32 Focus Boas in a size 8 that I use with l/xl 390's and it works fine. I also have size 9 soloman Dialogue wides that wouldn't work with the S/M 390's so it will probably depend on the particular boot
