Toe cap pissoff
 
I'm currently riding the 2013 Union Flites, picked them up for $200 because I decided to try something different with a little more flex and forgiveness. As much as I love them the toe cap consistently loosens up. I have tried having the cap in the forward position in the binding and the strap where it connects to in the most far back position and it still fucks off while im riding. I'll throw a picture up of what I mean by forward position if you dont understand what i'm saying. I crank them down to the very bottom and they're halfway up by the tip I hit any park feature or heelside carve. Any help for keeping these things in place without going out and buynig a new cap ? :dunno:



Pics dont want to embed so heres the mofuggin links. Cap is barely on center and no teeth showing, both strap and cap are in the furthest back channel (meant for cap strap)

Down to the very bottom...you mean with no teeth showing? If that's the case you definitely don't have them set right.

Yep, I ride size 11 boots so either the toe cap is offset to the side and 5-10 teeth are showing or its perfectly centered and no teeth are showing.

your bindings look a bit big, if you're cranking them and using them to the last teeth

I have the union atlas, large, size 10.5 vans boots, toe is rock solid, but you have to dial it in correctly from the start.

Adjust the heelcup accordingly, it should help. For instance, I have mine at "1" to center my boot, and it fits snug and I never have to worry about my bindings.

Ur front strap is in the most forward slot. I have Union contact pro's and a 11.5 boot, coulndt make it fit and feel right till i set the from strap in the back slot. Try reading the manual u got in the box :D If ur cranking down to the very end ur setup isnt correct.
Edit: and start with the heelcup setup like Kaka said ^^

I pushed the heelcup forward and moved the binding itself back and its solid now. Never really thought about the heelcup.

Are your boots centered on your board? An 11 in the L/XL shouldn't have trouble fitting. Move the heel cup forward until the toe strap works right then mount the binding so your boot is centered.
