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

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...

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

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).
