Nitro's binding division is called Raiden.
Quote:
Raiden doesn't use M/L or S/M or L/XL. Their Medium is a straight up Medium. Large will not fit on a 25cm width board without making major concessions.

Raiden Medium = 4.5 inch space in the forefoot/toe area (my old size 9 Head boots (wider than K2) just barely fit), 4.25 inch space where the highback attaches to the heelcup, 9.25 inches minimum from the edge of the toe ramp to the edge of the heel airbag (just past 9.75 inches maximum). The highback rises just over 10 inches from the heel airbag at the default highback and forward lean positioning.
I have last year's Zeros, which are virtually identical to this year's. I highly doubt your boots will fit width-wise into a Medium. I believe a size 10 32 Lashed fit into Medium (measure your boots and compare them with the above measurements).
Raiden Zero Large
Raiden Zero Medium
Raiden's Large is a lot bigger (much longer and a little wider) than their Medium.

For the board, I recommend the NeverSummer Legacy-R 159 (26.4 waist). Rome Slash 160 (26.4). If you can get into a Raiden Medium, then a Rome Agent 160 or NeverSummer SL-R 158 (25.3) or 161 (25.5). Capita Indoor Survival 158 (25.3) or 160 (25.6) would be another option.
