Default Bindings to go with k2 boots

Your best bet is just take the boots in with you so you can make sure they fit.

For example, Rome bindings cover a wide range of boot sizes. Many in here will up size and go for a L/XL instead of the S/M. But I took my boots in and with some adjusting was able to fit my boots into a S/M 390 Boss.

Another thing to take into account, do you have BOA? If yes, you may need wider bindings. Also, check to make sure you can get to the knobs on the side of the boots; sometimes the strap gets in the way.

There are a couple of more things you need to take into account. Just post your weight, height, foot size, boot size, board brand and model. This will give the other members the info they need to help you narrow down your search.

This guy speaks the truth... In general all the brands are going to fit your boots, it's just a matter of getting the bindings with the straps you like, the right amount of flex, and then find the model that fits the best.

If you plan on keeping the board/bindings through a growth spurt it might be worth erring on the side of slightly bigger bindings. That way you could stretch your gear out for a few years.

Snowolf, Nito, and poutanen

Thanks for the advice. I'll go to my local ski/snowboard shop and bring my boots in and try some right?? To make sure the size and flex is fitting. A bit bigger too maybe.

Usually snowboard bindings brands range in flex right? Like k2 produces soft flex to stiff bindings, they don't make just stiff or just park. Right? Jee I'm such a newbie... Or like certain binding/snowboard companies make just a certain type of binding? Just for reference.

Most if not all binding manufacturers make an "all-mountain" medium flex binding. I wouldn't limit yourself to one brand, check them all out and be skeptical of what sales guys tell you about brand X vs brand Y. Use your own senses to tell you which bindings are going to be right for you.
