Heel and Toes set up HELP!
 
I am riding an Arbor 158 Element CX (camber) for the first time this year. It has a 25.2 cm waist width and I got some Med/Large Union SL and 10.5 Burton reduced foot print boots to with it. I decided to go with a 15 -6 stance angle and use the manufacture recommend binding center.

So the question is. I am trying prevent toe and heel drag and center these bindings and boots. Should I be focusing on centering the Heel and Toe to the binding or the boot. Should I be going to the outer most point and using that ? I am trying to minimize toe and heel drag. That said I will be only riding on the east coast for now so no really deep pow. My rocker board is a bit wider and I didn't have this problem before.

It seems like I can get almost 65 degrees or more...almost 70 degrees.

I think I should look at a wider board next time :mad::confused:

Center the boot to the board.

Not sure about toe drag with those specs.

It is weird that some say to center the outer most point right ? I mean the heel cup is really high up and if anything I think it is more likely to have toe drag rather than heel...:dunno:

Agree, I have toe drag way more often than heel drag. Gas pedals are a must. Most bindings have them built in now so unless you're rocking size 11+ at 0, 0 on a ski, you should be 'okay.' ;)

I ride +/- 15 and have both my bindings set back toward the heel edge a bit more to minimize toe drag. I like to bolt the bindings up loosely with boots strapped in and mess around with toe/heel edge stance a bit to find a happy balance.

Here is a quick install just to see what I am dealing with. Maybe I am over analyzing...


all pics are of the back binding that is set to about -6

If your v""""" is anything like my hand, then there will be "No Problem"

If your vagina is anything like my hand, there will be no problem - YouTube

looks normal to me, Id be surprised if you end up really battling with toe drag. Are you hanging it over and carving hard? If so I'd mess with a little more angle front and back. If you are carving all around the mtn you can get into a way more aggressive stance to accommodate that riding style.

There is no problem with your set-up at all. Many people ride with much more overhang. In fact, any less overhang and the board is likely too wide (although that really depends on the boot).
