Default Setting up me gear...

Hi, just got some new gear (Burton freestyle bindings,burton Standart and northwave legent boots),

And after trying to set up my binds so the boots would fit and all, i've been wondering of a potential toe drag....what do you think? and what do you think the cause is....Thanks for all replies!

I've tried to set it as centered and minimum extension so it is not popping out of the board edges...

Ya you need to move those back toward your heel edge. It looks like the binding itself is overhanging and a large gap to the rear or heel edge.
You may need to rotate the disk plate 90 degrees to get more set back

yeah I thought his binding was off the board at first also but it is just the graphic. Like Slyder said make sure your boot is set all the way in the binding and flip your board over so you are looking at the base. Now look at the toe and heel of the boot are they the same distance off the board if not move the bindings till they are. If everything is already lined up it really does not look that bad at all, plus is you binding ducked out at all. To me it look almost at Zero deg.

Yes it is at 15 degree...because of the direction the photo was taken you cant see that the rear end of the bind is already at the end of the board, meaning i cant take is backwards anymore...

+ i've tried to make sure the bind and the end of the shoe are on the same line...you can move the toe part of the bind...so thats what i did...

is it possible that because of my shoe size(11) is kind of big, there's nothing more to do?..

sounds like your bigger foot this may be all you get.
question though, which way are the slots in your disc facing. The slot parrallel with the base plate or perpendicular to the base plate???

Can you rotate the disc 90 degrees so the holes are parallel to the base plate and still mate up to the holes in the board. If so you can then use the extra holes in the slot to slide the binding back a 1/4" to 1/2" and that may give you just enough overhang toe and heel.

Does that make sense?? Hope it helps.

Stole this pic off the web so yours would face like this **Parelllel **



because I think yours are like this NOW and not allowing you to slide them back a bit **Perpendicular **

Thanks for all the replies,

My bindings doesnt come out of the board like in the picture(unless thats the boots connected...)...

Plus i've found out that when i tight the toe straps its kind of squeezing the shoes also and making the overhang smaller....

best thing i can do now is wait for the snow and if ill get a drag ill try to change the angle of the binds so it would be bigger angle but the shoes would be aligned with the board edge...

Thanks again.

ofcourse boots are connected xD there's no other way of finding out toe and heel drag dude!

you'll most likely have more of both, because i have a wide (26.5cm waist width) board with only a 10 boot.
