BurtonBindings Match the curvature of the toe of the boot. there will be some boot hanging over the toe ramp, that's normal and appropriate.

My guess is 1 or 2 positions in the heel snap -> forward.

Thanks man.

How much overhang of the boot over the footbed would you suggest as ideal?

I've got a pair of size 7 ions on the small bindings and at stock (ie: no extension of the footbed), I've got about 1.5 inches of overhang.

blayze Hey guys one other dumb question...

How do I extend the footbed? I've got about 1.5 inches of overhang, trying to get it down to an inch. I wish Burton would address these things in their instructions!

Thanks!

blayze Thanks so much for all the help guys, and thank your seriouscat for taking the time and effort to upload the pics.

The screwdriver worked like a charm. Those things are on TIGHT!

Supra The first few times I use a screwdriver, then they loosen up enough to do it with fingers comfortably.
Wait til you try to pull out the gas pedal

It's not the smoothest feeling. I was kinda worried the first time too. Here's what they look like.Attachment 11569

blayze Thanks for the advice guys.

Either they are fastened on super hard or I'm an extreme weakling, but they still aren't coming off. I'm going to try to get something flat, like a flathead screwdriver to get some leverage.

destroy I had the same problem when I got my Malavitas. I had a major "WTF, bro?!" and actually asked for help from a tech figuring it out cuz I came straight from the store to the mountain and just wanted to ride!

Just reach under on those two parts you have circled and peel em up. It folds and flips out of the way. It'll SNAP in and out of place. The gas pedal kinda does the same as well. I get weary of plastic (especially such dinky stuff like these clips) that gets wear during removal and adjustments but I think they'll be okay and easy to replace cheaply if ever any problems.

Yep. Just stick your finger in there and push them away from the base
