    Posted: Mar/06/2013 at 12:29pm
Hey guys,

I'm having trouble deciding how I should position my new Cartels. As I have some overhang (size 12s on a 25,3 waist) I usually try to pull out the gas pedal as far as possible while setting the bindings as close to the backside edge as I can.
However, I'm not sure if I pulled out the pedal a little too much causing a part of the binding's footbed to hang over the edge.
What do you think, would it be better to pull it in and to move the whole binding a little bit towards the frontside?
Or is it just me being paranoid ?










I would really appreciate your help!
Greeting from Germany

what's wrong with your setting? it looks just like my bindings on board. in fact, i have a bit more front and back hanging than yours and it ride just fine. really, tell me what's wrong with your setting.

this is all irrelevant until your boots come into play.  you don't set up your bindings in relation to your board, you set them up in relation to your boots, in relate to the board.. if that makes sense

with your boots in your bindings, all the way snug back into the heel cup, they should end up centered over the width of the board, with equal toe and heel overhang.  doesn't matter where your bindings end up as long as your boots end up centered over the width of the board.  with burton bindings, they don't have an adjustable heel cup, so you have to move the entire binding in order to position your boots.

find the point where the heel side of your binding needs to be, in order to get your boots centered.  after that, pull the toe ramp out so it matches the curve of the underside of your boots.  toe ramps are not meant to extend to the end of your boots, they are there to aid in toeside response/support

thanks guys. I realized I had to move the whole thing a little to the frontside, as I had about 1,3 cm more heel than toedrag on the backbinding. The front binding was just fine (3,1cm backside drag and 2,8cm frontside drag) As a result, I needed to pull in the back binding's toe ramp for about 1cm. So I eneded up with the front binding's toe ramp being extended out 1 cm more than the back binding's one whereas the front binding's ramp length seems to match the boot better. Does it still need to be shortend as well?

@spenser Thanks for the great explanation, it helped me out big time!

Your boots are going to drag way before your bindings with that set up. Forget about it, and get on with your day. nothing to worry about there.
