Default Toe/heel drag?

Hi, new here

Just got a new board, and the waist width is 25.2 mm, but I'm using a size 11/12 boot, and I'm a bit in doubt .. will this give me toe/heel drag, or is the binding high enough? I can't really figure it out :/

Thx in advance

thats probably ok, but if your toe ramp is adjustable, you should extend it to the edge of your board for more leverage on your toe side turns

Great
I couldn't find a way to extend the ramp.. but I hope it won't drag
IF it should drag, what possibilities do I have? Adjusting the bindings degree, or use raisers?


EDIT: Just read the booklet =) The ramps can be moved. I'll try to extend them

Is it an 11. Or a 12. Either way the board is too narrow. The toe over hang on that picture is way too much. Try and push the heal cup back as far as it can go. You need the boot centered over the board.

Don't listen to this fuckhead; even the overhang out and you'll be perfectly fine.

So, I've extended the ramps so they are about 1 mm close to the edge, and the bindings are 12/-6 degrees. And centered a bit more.

It looks promising.

Thank you all

WTF?! Nah dont listen to me. The last thing you want to do before you buy something is not do your research. Go ahead, ride a board way to narrow. Hell hang your toes all the way out. All the coolest kids on the mountain are doing it.
