How Do I Properly Fit My Snowboard Bindings?

If you have just bought a pair of snowboard bindings, you may be wondering how to make sure you fit them properly. There are a few things you should consider, such as determining the size and flex rating of the bindings you are considering, as well as the setback and stance of the board.


A snowboard binding is a crucial connection between a snowboarder and the board he rides. It is used to transfer energy from the body to the board, allowing for precise control and a softer ride.

When choosing a pair of bindings, it is important to find ones that fit your boots and riding style. A snowboarder's ability, level, and terrain all factor into choosing a set of bindings.

Standard snowboard binding sizes range from small to medium. Some companies, such as Burton, offer cross over sizes that can accommodate more than one size of boot. However, it is not uncommon to find that a particular brand will only produce bindings that work with a certain size of board.

Union Binding Company markets their bindings as DuraFlex nylon composite. This means they are designed to be a strong and durable binding that also offers flexibility.

Centered Stance

The centered stance is a great way to perform tricks on your snowboard. This type of stance is usually best suited for advanced freestyle riders. It also makes it easier to switch between riding forwards and backwards.

A centered stance can make you feel more comfortable on the slopes, and it can make it easier to land bigger drops. In addition to the centered stance, you can tweak your bindings to increase your balance and stability.

To choose the right stance for you, you should pay attention to your personal style. If you're a freestyle rider, you might prefer a wider stance that makes it easy to lunge and jump, while a narrower stance can be more difficult to control.

You can also adjust your stance in small increments, to see what works for you. For example, if you're a beginner, a centered stance may be the right choice. However, you don't want to overdo it and end up straining your quads.

Setback Stance

In snowboarding, the setback stance is a great way to minimize back leg burn when carving or riding in deep snow. This stance is also a good choice for riders who like to shred pow.

The stance can be determined by your snowboard's bindings and your personal preferences. However, it should be a combination of the best settings and a stance that suits your specific style of riding. Having a narrow stance can cause you to lose balance on rough terrain. A wider stance allows you to carve more easily.

Bindings should be mounted on your board in a way that is comfortable and easy to use. They should be slightly wider than shoulder width. Ideally, they should be mounted in the center of the snowboard.

Flex Rating

If you are looking for a new snowboard, you will want to pay close attention to the flex rating of the bindings you choose. The flex of a snowboard is measured on a scale from 1-10. Choosing a board with the right flex will make turning easier and help you get the most out of your board.

There are several factors that play into the flex rating of your bindings. For example, your skill level and body weight will influence your decision. Also, you should consider the speed at which you ride. This will determine whether you should opt for a soft flex or a stiff flex.

Soft flex snowboard bindings are great for beginners. They are more forgiving and provide more leverage when making presses or grabs. In addition, they allow for easier landings.

Toe Cap Strap

The toe cap strap is a part of the snowboard bindings that keeps the heel of the boot from moving. This prevents unwanted movement and helps to align the foot for the heel cup.

There are three main types of toe strap. They include a traditional toe strap, a hybrid toe strap, and a toe cap strap. All of these toe straps are designed to hold the foot in place, but there are pros and cons for each type.

A toe cap strap is a common feature on rear entry bindings. It ratchets across the toe of the boot to secure the toe box. These toe straps can be used over the traditional toe strap or as a separate toe cap.

Flow ToeCap straps are designed to be flexible, yet still provide a positive hold. They are able to stretch to fit the toebox of the boot, and feature a pattern of 3D hinges.
