Default Toe Drag on my new setup?

Hey Folks,

You fellas think this will be an issue? I don't do any body laying carves, so i'm hoping it won't be.

XL Ride Capo on Size 11 ThirtyTwo JPWalkers on a 25.3cm waist. (I took XL because I didn't like how the heel strap and toe cap strapped down with the size Large bindings.)

Looks like I have about 0.75 inch excess on the toe and 0.5 on the heel.

Just need reassurance or a heads up if I could face trouble. Thanks.

Pictures shown below:

the boot looks centered to me but if you can, you should push your toe ramp in more so its completely touching your boot with no space.

from the looks of it from the side you would have to be burying your face in the snow to get toe drag on that..

The toe ramp looks pretty far out

Yep you shouldn't have an issue with that setup as I ride with 1.5" overhang and no issues

I looked at the pictures and definitely agree, but in person, the overhang is quite obvious. Either way, I was able to Large Size bindings instead of XL and I have no worries any more. Thanks fellas for the input.

What about the way the L straps didn't you like the fit of? Was it uncomfortable or did it make the ratchets hard to pop, or a lot of work to get the ratchets started on the ladders?

From the looks of it to me I would have pushed you into larges. Those are really just a bit too big for your boot...
