Default Toe/Heel overhang.

I just got some new bindings, and I noticed a more significant overhang on my heel side. Is this going to have an affect on my riding? Pics posted below.






Put the last one in there in case you wanted to see my whole setup.

im in the same boat. i have small-ass feet and my heels hang of the board a tiny bit but my toes dont. they are right at the edge though. this is with the binding moved forward all the way. i have wondered if this was a problem, but it feels fine while riding.

from ur picture, it looks like you can shift ur bindings toward the fron of ur board a bit, this should fix ur problem, which is less drastic than mine.

If you have a size 10 or greater boot then you might want to look at a mid-wide or wide board. It always revolutionizes the ride for big footers to get wide boards.

I can't stand to drag and I ride 30* 15* in a size 9 boot. Some binding manufacturers just don't work for me for that reason.

Your option now is to ride with low edge angles so stay off the groomers and stay in the parks.

Really? Theres no way to fix this? Like shifting the bindings forward. Maybe I should sell these(I got them on ebay for 45 bucks) and size the binding down one size. Im only size 8-9 boot.

im pretty sure that much drag is not gunna do anything unless u do like racing carves or something where ur carving so deep ur almost touching the snow. my friend has size 12 boots, rides a regular board, and has much more drag then u and he never gets hung up from heel/toe drag. u should be perfectly fine unless you spend ur whole day doing extreme carves.

Thanks man. Ill try it. Im going to try the new bindings out this weekend, so Ill find out then.

PS: I like this forum. I asked the exact same question at SnowboardAddicts.com, and they are more concerned as to why I have Rome stickers on my Burton board.

That's really a lot of overhang and you will most likely have problems with it if your making aggressive carves IMO.
