Maybe I'm missing something here, but from the looks of the pictures, you need to suck in your heel cups and re-position the bindings to fit centered. Again, I could be way off base, but from the pics, that's what it looks like to me.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

There has to be some way to push that heelcup forward.

The heel cup isn't adjustable. Burton bindings are unibody's.

I can't all the way see, but it looks like your toe ramps aren't all the way back (I read you said that they are) can you confirm this?

Bindings are way too big. I understand they changed things for 2013, but on the 2012s I fit a 7.5 boot into a medium binding (their chart says too small but it fit well) and got it centered.

Bindings too big. Board too wide. You mentioned REI? Return that shit. With the binding that big you're never going to get it centered. For christs sake your boot doesn't even reach the end of the toe ramp.

Get a normal width board, a medium binding and then see how it centers.

With the binding so large, and the inability to move the heel cup forward, you have a boot that starts way too far back to get centered. I don't even think the old style cartels would work on centering that boot.

Yeah I think B's bindings go to a size 11 in a medium and then start at size 1,000 or something in a large.

Re: 2013 Cartel's! Can't be Centered?!!

Does the high back move in on the heel cup? I'm pretty sure that my old cartels had a way to shorten the heel length. You would think the newer versions would have even better adjustability, not worse. But I could just be remembering them wrong as well, and I don't have them around anymore to look.

Contact Burton or the shop where you bought them, you will need mediums just like me. If you can get them to send you some medium bindings see if you can hang onto the large toe caps.

The medium binding will automatically have your binding more centered because the base plate is significantly shorter.

Your boots will fit snugly but well. I am really enjoying my mediums but I have the large toe caps on there as the medium toe caps didn't work (hurt my toes).

As I said in my thread lots of people are having this issue and I think Burton should stress the need to try on bindings for people in the middle of the two sizes. They can put a note on their size charts and tell their reps and shops so people have a heads up.

It seems to be mostly people who already own Burton bindings who are getting caught out because if your old burton bindings fit with the same boots/ board who would think the new ones wouldn't.

Its the reflex feature that forced them to reduce the adjustability. It is a good feature though and I noticed more pop.

Definitely medium size bindings.

Also, a regular width board - but sounds like that ship has sailed...

Chomps, let me know if you go this route but for some reason can't keep the large capstrap. I have a brand new set of the gettagrip capstraps that I may be willing to part with. I have them only as a backup so I don't necessarily need them. Plus we wouldn't have to fuck with shipping since I'm in Lansing. Just a thought in the event that you can't keep yours.
