Toe Strap Issue Union Binding

Hi All,

I have rode about 5 times in the Union Atlas Bindings L/XL size and I have to tighten my toe straps all the way down where there are no teeth left. I noticed today that the left binding is starting to get loose after locking all the way down. My question is, can I move the strap one notch to make them shorter to have teeth left when I tighten down? They won't exactly be centered on my toes at that point, but not sure if it is safe or if it will effect my riding.

Thanks.

sounds like you need the mediums. but let bring it in a hole and put it over top instead of around front and see if that helps

I have 10.5 boots and the M end at like 9.5/10. I tried the Mediums and I pretty much had the force the boot in and set all straps to the max.

I will try your suggestion as well. Thanks.

Move the heel cup, as Union uses adjustable heel cups. check for centering.

Yes

Yes you can move them down and you can also adjust them on the binding.

Check out my Blog if you want.... I write about everything in my life that is snowboarding related. I also post pics and give my reviews on different mountains and different trips.

I already moved the screw down a hole to tighten them. Is there another setting somewhere else? I saw a a union video showing some other adjustments to the teeth strap, but I don't think the Atlas has that.

The heel cup is already adjusted to have an equal amount of toe and heel when my boot is strapped in.

If you take binding off of your board the toe strap can be adjusted from underneath. There are slots to position it forward or back.
