I have the Ultra Toe Caps on mine as well havent had that problem. Have you adjusted your bindings for your boots for optimal fit? What size are your boots and bindings?

Yeah this happens with toe straps alot. Try putting the strap more on top of the boot and tightening it down a lot because it will undoubitly loosen when u ride.

I'd hang in there itll nexy year. While comfortable every single version of the Burton cap has had rise issues, next years is supposed to be pretty super solid from what I've heard. If they don't work all that well, try and figure out how to rig some Rome or Ride(grip toe) toe straps, they are the best convertibles on the market.

Yeah, I have that problem too with my '08 cartels, but I thought they had already solved that issue for the '09's, guess not. I have found that you have to make absolutely sure that they are centered on the boot, that helps quite a bit, but it can still happen.

What about the Ride's makes them that much better, how did they solve the problem?

Just make sure they are centered, i also tend to put my capstrap lower on my boot. Every once in awhile i notice my toe comes up, but thats very rarely. Usually only if i crash toe side(and my toe jams into the snow) and occasionally if i get stuck in really deep pow. For me atleast the toe strap is something that cant really be over tightened, i tighten it as tight as i can.

Doing the upper ratchet before the lower one fixed the problem for me for the most part.

i had the same problem with my customs/old burton boot setup. got new boots and they havent slipped once. i'm surprised the ultra had slipping problems. i would think it would hold well.
