  #1  Rear toe overhang on freeride board  Posted 06/03/2019 @ 13:11
Recently purchased a Nitro Mountain board 163cm and Nitro Team Boots UK11. The boots are 2cm longer than my previous boots and I fear they may overhang too much? Rear binding angle 9 degrees.

Hi, there have been quite a few posts of late regarding overhang. Most are not too severe. Looking at your pics, I would say yours is borderline. I have 10.5 boots but my problem is the binding heel cup hits the piste first. Most of the time it’s not really a problem but it gets me on heel edge on steep icy slopes when the heel cup pushes out the board edge.

“Mid-wide” boards are often only slightly wider and don’t solve the problem but I have, over many years, put up with overhang rather than going for a wide board although I have to confess to thinking about getting a short wide board for the times I want to do some icy steeps.

I don’t know how this might help you. When there is snow on the slope you will get some drag but I don’t think it will prevent you engaging your board when carving. On a steep icy slope you might get my problem.

Thanks for taking the time to reply? I’ve bitten the bullet and unwrapped the board and fitted the bindings, I agree it may be an issue on steep slopes but hopefully will be fine 99% of the time, I’m taking my old boots in case I find it an issue next week. Fingers crossed ??

I have a boarding buddy with the same problem, he is huge and so are his feet!!

Even on a wide board he has big toe overhang.

I remember seeing a few years ago people fitting "risers" beneath their bindings. This was apparently to give more leverage on carved turns. I was thinking of something like this for him to give him a bit of toe clearance. That or cutting his toes off.
