i ride rails pretty much all the time and i prefer toe straps. i feel like with toe caps its easier to lean to far forward on front boards and eat shit.

toe straps for life!

I love my toe caps. I like they way they hold my boot tight against the highback. I feel more secure in them. I think I can strap them up tighter without pressure on my feet than I can with toe straps.

Toe Caps. I love the fact that they secure my foot to the highbacks. I also love the fact that you dont feel them at all.

Ditto.

Also, some bindings have straps that can be used as straps or caps depending on your need or preference. I think both ride and rome use these types of straps. However, I've never even tried using my 390s as a strap, but it seems like they could be used that way.

Toe caps are the logical next step in strap binding design. More secure and more comfy..

Burton P-ones and the Convertible strap on the Ride Delta.. Is what I ride.
