Get a M/L binding.

I have a 10.5 kaiju and I can fit into M/L or L/XL Contact or Force basetrays, but the Atlas tray is longer than either of those.

matty19 Don't be too leary of the Union toe strap. They've refined the shape for this season (similar to last season's, but with better hold), and Unions are BOMBER. No tooless adjustment doo-dads to break. No auto tech that saves you a few seconds when strapping in, but is just one more thing waiting to break. True, they don't have canting, but I recommend trying cnted bindings before you buy. They can definitely be a love it/hate it thing.

Why aren't you looking at Burtons? Malavitas, Cartels, or Missions might all work well for you.

phony_stark M/L for sure. Basetray is wide.

camosunsnowboar If it were me, I would go with the M/L Atlas. I ride Nike boots and have owned the ZF-1, Kaiju, and DK all in a 9.5. All of which fit (with room to spare) in the M/L Atlas base.

What boots are you using? Some will have a smaller footprint and you could fit a m/l which my be better overall.

snowklinger I like most of the features of my k2 uprises, but the fact that the auto does not release the toe strap caused me to kick the shit out of it over 50 days and plenty of em park laps, basically destroying them. The toe strap is the best toe strap concept around in terms of fit, I would say the engineering is not quite there in terms of bombproofness.

I know plenty of people have a different experience, and I would totally get another pair, just personally would get a conventional 2-strap over the auto.

Otherwise the bindings are plush, canting and dampening are nice, the ankle strap hinge is a no-brainer that everyone else fails hard on, the ratchets are smooth, there is even a funnel for the strap entry - clever.
