Default Burton Cartels - Sizing

Hey Everyone!

So ... I went with Burton Cartels! lol now I have a problem with the size. Not completely sure that they are not too big.

I got K2 Raider boots size 10. The size of Burton Cartels I ordered is Large. Burton's bindings size chart is 8.5-11 mediums, 10+ large.

Both straps seem to lock fine and tight. I am just worried that Large might be too wide for my boot size 10. How to determine if the bindings are too big/wide?

Mediums seemed too small, 'cause I could barely connect the straps, as well as too short too...

Please recommend something. I am tempted to look at other brands that might have better sizing for boots size 10. Does that even make sense? lol

Thanks so much for all the help!

P.S. if somebody got burton cartels, or other burtons, what size works for you bindings/boots? I'm going nuts! lol

You can adjust the straps, you know right?

Large should be fine with those K2s, ride them and unless your foot moves around, dont sweat it.

what about the board size? My board waist width is 25.1? Is it a good size for Cartels in Large? or is it a bit too big?

I have medium Malavitas with size 10.5 Kaijus and they fit perfect. The gas pedal is maxed out, but the straps are no where near maxed out.

screw on the bindings to your board... if the baseplate is hanging, get mediums.

Definitely mediums. Large Cartels had to be adjusted as small as possible for my 10.5s and they still felt like they had some slop. Sold 'em.

Definitely mediums....based on your boot size you will have no problem fitting into them. Put your boots into the binding while on the board and adjust the toe and ankle strap to fit accordingly. The cartels (and most bindings) have a significant amount of adjustment to the straps to allow for good boot fit. I have size 10.5 boots and have 2012 medium cartels mounted on my Never Summer Sl . They fit great and are a great all mountain binding.
