Hmm I'm having some problems with my size 11 boots on my CTX. Heels have about 1.5-2cm overhang wich is perfect for me. My toes have 0.5-1cm overhang with my binding set up all the way forward. A bit unbalanced as you can see...

I know I can set my highbacks and front footbeds forward but the latter keep backing up while riding wich results in less responsiveness.
Maybe I just need new bindings.

size 11 is sometimes the cutoff point for a normal width board depending on your boot.

When you even them out, the overhang will be even less on your heels and a little more on your toes than current. I don't think you need the CTX as your overhang is pretty tiny.

As for your uneven issue, it is definitely your bindings. Instead of adjusting forward lean, adjust your heel cup. Most bindings accommodate multiple sizes. The way they do this is by making the heelcup adjustable. There should be a screw where the heelcup is attached to the base. You can adjust it from there. In your case, it sounds like you will need to move the heelcup a step up towards the toe.

Sorry Leo, I meanth adjusting the heel cup instead of the highbacks. It will indeed move my foot forward but my toes will not be entirely on the toeramp since the toeramp, when moved forward, keeps backing up again while riding.
I don't know how bad that be would though, when your toes are positioned slightly beyond the toe ramp.

So your toe ramp is adjustable, but they push back in when riding? That sucks.

What bindings do you use?

Yeah, that does suck about your Ride's toe ramp. Depending upon how the toe of your boot sits when the toe ramp is all the way in, I would say that you may need new bindings or at the very least, may need to give Ride a call to see if they can do anything.

Well, to be fair, the toe/heel ramps don't need to be completely under the whole area of your boot. They just need to be under the contact points. You can generally tell which parts of your heel/toe will make contact when you engage an edge. That's where you want your ramps to be under.

It isn't super important, but it definitely improves the edge response and feels more comfortable.

Looking forward to your review, as I am also close to your size (6'1", 200lbs, size 10.5 boots)


How does the NS flex scale compare to the Gnu flex scale? I am riding the 159 Gnu Carbon Credit right now, and wouldn't mind something a little softer.. but still want something stiff enough for bigger landings.

Torn between the Evo/Revolver and the Proto CT for next season.

The Evo is a soft board. It's softer than the CC for sure. I'd say the Proto is about the same as a CC. However, the Proto is super poppy so it makes it a great jump board. You kind of have to familiarize yourself with the pop because if you just go right into it, it catches you off guard.
