Heavy guys looks for binding...
 
Hello, guys

I am looking for bindings that will suit the Skunk Ape Board that I am planing to buy (I am 6' 5", 240lbs). Could you give me some recommendations? What do you think about Union Atlas XL (I am 14US/12UK foot size)?

Rides works fine for me with 230lbs.
I can easily carve on this. Try to get a CAD or NRC with super-nice footbed.
Also i know Rome and Union force are good.

Actually it depends on how you're gonna use the board, may be the only one will fit you is catek fr2

Ralch-

Size 14 Boot set ups can get trickey-

Depending on the Model and Year of the boots the overall size and fit can vary-

UNION's Fit up to a 1 4- The Atlas and Force are both great options for the larger rider that wants a more supportive binder- I am a larger rider and have ridden both. The Force being slightly stiffer-

K2 Makes an XL size in their line that fits most of the 14+ Sizes nicely-

I would recommend taking your personal boots do your local UNION dealer and sizing them up in person to see what fits you the best.

Do you work somewhere in C3?

I also wear a size 14 boot. I know for sure any of the Ride XL bindings will fit as well as any Flow XL binding. Those are the ones I personally have experience with and can be sure that they fit.

You'll probably want a binding on the stiff end of the scale. I'd suggest taking your boot to local shops and seeing what works first hand.

Of course he does, I was just trying to figure out if Union, Capita, or Coal.
I'm hoping for Capita. Or maybe Union. We need a new Union dewd here. But it'd be nice to have a Capita guy here too... hmmm

I second this. Ride CAD XL and US13 malamutes are fine, and i believe US14-16 will fit in fine.

Thanks guys for the advises. Honestly, I was in doubt about K2 National or Rome 390/Boss.
