Was I the only one that understood how to set these things up as a toe cap?

I tried, but the design as a toes cap looked like ass. I figured there was no way they would design a toe cap that crapy, so I just put it over top thinking that must be the way. Are they designed to be interchangeable or did you make shift?

What other way is there besides lengthening it and putting around your toe?

Use it as a half and half just like every other dual purpose strap on the market.

Ive never tried a dual purpose...only the obvious toe strap versions. So as a half and half you mean along the top part of the toe?

Ill give it a shot tomorrow, thanks. Its still shitty design regardless.

Ever looked closely at the toe straps on your Diodes and Geneses?

I use the toe strap half and half... That's not a problem, they hold the toe of my boots fine, My only issue with the strap itself is that it feels cheap like it might snap and break at some point, although they might be fine, that's the way they look to me. The ladders and ratchet on the toe strap, at least on the set I bought are really bad in my opinion. To me it looks like all the design focus went into the baseplate and hinge, which seem awesome, really solid. The highback I think is fine, but the straps seem like a quick afterthought.

OK, and just looked at my Geneses and Diodes vs the NOW toe straps.


I dont see any similarities. The Diodes and Geneses looks like a well designed toe strap while the NOW looks like much less. Can someone post a pic of what half and half means? Teach me something new today.

Thanks

I have 20+ days on mine if you include time spent on last season's protos. Still got total love for these things. Toe straps are awesome and never move on me. Most comfortable binding I've been in.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
