Medium cartel with size 11US 32 LASHED
 
Hey guys,
Just got all my new kit sorted, last thing was the boots and i went for 2011/2012 32 lashed...
These are for my burton cartel 2012 and Never summer SL 158.

Only problem I might be having is that the 32 boot is pretty wide and its a little bit of a squueze getting the heel into the binding. It's not uber tight but takes a little force to get the heel flat with the highback.

Just wondering if this will be a problem with responsiveness when riding?
Also wondering whether i may have pushed it too far getting an sl with size 11, but didn't want the extra width of the legacy really.

cheers

i'm kinda surprised you fit a 11 lashed in a medium cartel. Lashed are the bulkiest boots i've ever ridden, and they broke down super quick. I was quite dissapointed with them. As long as you can fit your boots in them somewhat easily and do not have the straps maxed out I would try it.... but the fit will be that much worse once you get a little bit of ice and snow built up in your footbeds. You should be ok on the 158 with size 11's. Just make sure to center your boots so you have the same amount of toe and heel overhang.

Ah, yeah i heard some rumours about their poor wear... what boots you recommend over them?

So if they're fitting in you're reckoning they're fine?

I had the same bindings and boots a couple of years back. My Lashed was a size 10 and it was a tight bit. Lashed boots are really wide. I would suggest you move up to a Large Cartel if you decide to keep them boots.

Any particular reason why? You think it'll limit riding in any way?
I know I prObs should go up but it'll be a massive hassle to do so. If it won't affect my riding I'll keep them despite the tight squeeze.

Riding a binding that is a squeeze is possible, but its far from optimal. Bindings like boards have a sweet spot for the straps and the heel cup / gas pedal. With a big size 11 on a M cartel you are pretty much maxing it out and are out of the sweet spot for comfort and performance.

I ride cartels (L) with burton rulers 11 with the reduced footprint. They fit with ease and I sometimes swap boards for a few runs with my buddy who has M cartel bindings. Its doable but I certainly don't feel as comfortable or as good response.

With a size 11 boot you need to get something pretty slim and not bulky also with reduced footprint tech. Of course make sure it fits your foot too.

Next time you get binding get L. They hardly way any more and you'll be more comfortable IMO.

Cheers... Only reason i'm hesitant is because i've already bought them and can't really take them back.
The only option i really have is to take the boots back and look for one with a smaller footprint. Might look into that. hm...

If you can't take them back you have several options.

1) Use them as they are with the M cartels, not ideal but perfectly doable.

2) Sell or swap your boots or bindings.

If the boots fit your feet well and you like them I would be inclined to change the bindings. 2012 cartels will sell easily and since they are on sale you could probably make the change for very little money.
Or try a swap maybe someone on here wants the M and has the L which is too big for them.

I am looking for some M Cartel Bindings (non-EST) for the right price.

Let me know if you are getting rid of these and going with the Large ones.

My local shop has Cartel's on sale and if your price is better than theirs I will take them off your hands.
