No womens large bindings are rated womens size 8 or larger, and mens 7-9. If you have burton bindings you can shorten the adjustable strap. but make sure you strap in and when you crank down the straps you should not be able to move your boots or wiggle them around.

What size board would a 5' 6" woman need?


hi! i'm around 5' 6" too and a 147/8 is a good size for me to start off with. it depends on your skill level and type of board. i'm assuming from your question you are a beginner so a shorter board would be better suited because they are easier to manouver, initiate turns on and learn all the basics.

as for the type of the board, freestyle boards, generally a twin tip and can be ridden switch, are typically bought smaller because they are easier to do trick on for the reason abover. freeride or all mountain boards, directional and meant to be ridden one way down the slope, are typically longer as they are usually for just riding down the slopes.
there are also combinations of both types but they are more for the intermediate up boarders
also consider the flex of a board. the softer, the easier to learn on [a bit off topic but useful to know if you already didn't]

but in general, a board that your feet won't hang over the egde too far [causing the dredded toe drag] and is between your chin and nose [again, varing from closer to one or the other from the type of board]
hope that helps :D i am also a beginner and a 147 is on the shorter side for me, just being easier to learn on. a 150 would be a good medium once i progress

Do the ride viper contrabands fit on the new burton boards using the channel system or the retro fit system for the new burton boards


They wont fit directly as Ride bindings are made of very lite metal and need all four screws to stay secure. The best idea is to buy the matching Burton binding or avoid the channel system and stick with 4 x 4 brands

I just want to ask if the Burton P1.1 2009 LARGE bindings will fit to my 24cm width board Thanks in advance


Hi,

Should do... Though to be safe I'd take a measurement of the board width to the shop with you and have a look at the bindings on a board of similar width..
Better still bring the board and your boots in with you and have them fit the binding and then try it for feel before you buy..

Do snowboard bindings work with regular shoes?


Snowboard bindings will work with your boots as long as the binding size is small enough. You can usually get the straps tight enough to give you some leverage on the board. I actually tried this last year and used regular shoes. The only problem I had was that there was too much wax on my snowboard so it just stuck to the sand. So my only advice is to get as much wax off your board as possible before goin. Besides that have a blast!!

Is there a different type of bindings for each type of riding?


Technical freestyle This type of rider is most often found on the lower elevations of the mountain, hiking the halfpipe or riding in the snowboard park. Many of today's technical freestyle riders come to snowboarding with experience as a skateboarder, in-line skater, BMX, or other action sports background. While the equipment specific to this type of rider excels in park and pipe riding, it can also be very versatile across the whole mountain at less than full-speed. * Technical freestyle bindings o Technical freestyle bindings generally use a low hiback with 2 straps for increased flexibility and range of motion o These bindings are not usually value/price driven o Most technical freestyle bindings (either step-in or strap) are made of composite materials in vibrant colors o Riders generally gain responsiveness with a minimal weight gain Freeride While an overused term in snowboarding, freeride is still the best way to describe the majority of snowboarders and soon-to-be snowboarders. As it suggests, freeride describes a user who intends to utilize the whole mountain. These riders enjoy everything about snowboarding: the amazing feel of carving a turn on freshly groomed slopes, the sense of flight obtained at lift-off from the big-air jump, the creativity that can only be understood descending the half-pipe, and the feel of freedom one gets floating in fresh powder. * Freeride bindings o Freeride bindings generally have higher hiback with 2 or 3 straps for added support and control o These bindings come in every shape, color, and price o For the most part, no matter what the specifics of each freeride binding, the general effect on the riding experience is minimal. This holds true for both traditional/strap bindings and Step-In bindings. o Binding choice is commonly a packaging decision or one of brand/price/graphics Freecarve This type of riding style is one of the fastest growing segments within the snowboarding world. Commonly referred to as "cross-over," a majority of these riders were once skiers. A freecarve rider enjoys the full-length and width a mountain has to offer, continually transitioning from one turn to the next. * Freecarve bindings o As with freecarve boots, there are very few freecarve bindings o Those that are freecarve specific can usually be distinguished by their third strap o Step-In bindings are also available in a freecarve configuration, and are almost always manufactured from space-age composites Alpine/Race Alpine/Race riders are easily picked out of the crowd. They are always seen on groomed trails, laying a trench in the snow with each turn. These riders use a snowboards edge like no other rider. Using powerful body movements and gravity as their friend, alpine riders enjoy the sport only when they are connected to the snow. * Alpine/Race bindings o Alpine/Race bindings are usually a plate binding with hard boots o Metal and composites are the only available materials for this type of binding

Snowboard length fit


"Length is one of the most important characteristics of a Snowboard. The length of a Snowboard is measured from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail. The length is usually measured in centimeters and often abbreviated to just the last two digits. Board length varies from 100cm to 180cm. To find the appropriate length for you, start by comparing the board length to your height. Although there are no dead set Rules in Selecting Board Length, the following are several guidelines to get you started. When holding the board on its end: * Short board should reach somewhere between your collar bones and chin. Shorter boards are easier to maneuver, great to be trained on, and often preferred by riders who do a lot of Snowboarding Tricks, park and Pipe Riding. * Medium length should come up between your chin and eyebrows. This length is preferred by all around intermediate to advanced riders who ride a variety of terrain, including parks and steeps. * Long boards should go from your forehead to several inches over the top of your head. Long boards are used for high-speed carving, deep powder snow surface, and big mountain terrain. Choosing the suitable board length is not only influenced by your height but also by your weight. Keep in mind that a Snowboard acts like a leaf spring - it has no clue how tall the person standing on it is. However, it does know your weight. Based on your weight or body structure, the following will help you choose the Right Length of Snowboard: * Lighter people should have shorter, more flexible boards. This is because a lighter person on a longer board commonly has a hard time controlling the board and initiating turns. * For an averagely built person, the board length should reach somewhere between the chin and your nose. * Heavier people should have longer, less flexible boards. A short board isn't advisable for heavy riders because the board often have a tendency to ""wash out"" or perform poorly, especially at higher speeds. * Freestyle riding is often done with a shorter board to allow better maneuverability. * Freeriding, deep snow, and racing boards will be longer in size. * For riders who are into Backcountry Snowboarding, go longer for stability. You may also consider your aggressive or timid style. If you're the type of boarder who really attacks the hill, you'll want to increase the length of your Snowboard up to five centimeters from the average size. Then again, if your riding style is naturally slower in character, go down five centimeters. Still, keep in mind that one Snowboard doesn't do it all."

Snowbard bindings adjustment


"With everyday use, the screws, nuts and bolts that hold the highest stress areas together tend to loosen up. Consequently, they need to be tightened regularly to ensure that a strap doesn't fall off and get lost. However, not every Mountain Resort provides tool stations, so it's important to have a Snowboard Tool within reach (preferably in your pocket) at all times. Remember, a snowboard tool is a small investment that will definitely pay off over years of riding. Also, with the standardized insert pattern of snowboards, and with the built-in adjustment capacity in most Bindings, Mounting and Adjusting Bindings has become simple quite a simple task. To be able to do this, make sure you have a screwdriver and a wrench or two. Also, it would be a plus if you have some basic knowledge about the stance width, stance location and stance angle. The distance between your front and rear foot is the Stance Width. The basic stance width is roughly the length of your shoulder-width apart (about 30 per cent of your height). The location of the center point between your Bindings relative to the center of the snowboard is the Stance Location. Conversely, the angle of the Bindings across the snowboard's longitudinal axis, wherein zero degrees represents a line that is perpendicular to the snowboard's length, is the Stance Angle. * Forward Lean For starters, check your board's Forward Lean. The forward lean is the amount of forward angle on the highback support. For more leverage and more responsive heelside turning, add more forward lean. By adding forward lean, you also force your knees to bend, consequently ensuring a good riding stance. Still, too much forward lean makes your knee bend too much. Over bending your knees put pressure on your quadriceps muscles and reduces your ability to turn easily. So don't overdo it. You can usually adjust the forward lean in soft-boot Bindings by changing the position of a plastic stay behind the highback. * Rotating the Highbacks You can easily rotate your Bindings' Highbacks if your bindings have slots on the hinges where the highbacks are fastened to the binding's baseplate. To make your heelside turning more responsive than when it is angled along with the baseplate, adjust your Bindings in parallel with the Snowboard's Heel Side Edge. You can do this by loosening the bolts and rotating the highbacks. * Adjusting Strap Position Generally, this involves unscrewing the straps from the baseplate and moving them forward or backward on the Bindings. To improve control, move the straps higher up on the foot. Conversely, move them down lower to increase flexibility. Make sure that the toe strap is resting around the base of your toes and is securely holding down the tip of the boot. Shorten your straps if you find yourself pulling on them for a snug fit. You can do this by fastening the straps to the baseplate further along the length of the strap. Most straps already have extra holes for this adjustment."

Snowboard bindings types


"Strap Bindings Highback Bindings The Strap Bindings is the original and still the most popular Binding System in Snowboarding. This is because Strap Bindings are not only adjustable and very secure, they are also comfortable. Nowadays, this Type of Bindings is designed to be lighter and stronger. Strap Bindings consists of a contoured baseplate where a rider can place his Soft Boots upon. At the back of the baseplate is a vertical plate (the highback) that rises behind your ankles and lower calves. The highbacks on Snowboard Bindings secure the heel of your feet and the backside of your lower legs. It also helps you to force the heel side edge of the board into the Snow Surface and brings the toe side of the board up. At the front of the binding are two or three adjustable straps which can be used to secure the front side of your feet and ankles to the Snowboard. Initially, you may have to sit down to strap in, but with a bit of practice, it'll be easier to strap in while standing. Strap Bindings can differ in the number of straps, the shape of the base, and highback plate. Alpine riders who need to perform high speed turns will prefer taller and stiffer highbacks for greater control and improved edge control. On the other hand, Freestylers will want a shorter backplate for more flexibility and turning power. Most people go for these kinds of bindings as they are more common, offer excellent control, and offer more options when it comes to boots-bindings combinations. The combination of the highback plate and the front side straps gives great control. This Type of Bindings is used in combination with Soft Boots. As the Binding gives all the support needed, the Snowboard Boots can remain soft and comfortable. Keep in mind that the Best Strap Bindings have ample amounts of wide padding at the toe and ankle straps. Step-In Bindings Step In Bindings It is quite hard to get into Strap Bindings since you need to loosen and tighten the straps every time you get into and out of your bindings. This is why Step-in Bindings were developed. This Type of Snowboard Bindings allow you to simply step down and click into it, thus making it easier for you to get on and off your snowboard. With this feature, Step-in Binding Systems have become quite popular with rental shops because they often give the beginners fewer Snowboard Equipment to fuss with. Still, while Step-In Bindings give you additional speed and can save you from a load of hassle, you pay for these conveniences when it comes to snowboard control. Step-in Bindings don't have any straps to give additional support, making the Snowboard Boot less flexible, and thus, harder to do Snowboarding Tricks. So make sure you get a good fit if you're planning to buy this. Step-in Bindings usually work in combination with soft boots which are somewhat stiffer than those used with highback bindings. When you opt for Step-in Bindings, you narrow your selection in choosing Snowboard Boots and Bindings since they both have to be ""step-ins"". However, there are some higher and more advanced Step-in Bindings out on the market that provide the best of both worlds. Step-ins can be used for either Freeride or Freestyle riders. Cross-over skiers will often feel comfortable with Step-in Bindings and boots since they are used to stepping in and to harder boots and just turning a switch or a latch whenever they want to get out. Flow-In Bindings Flow In Bindings Flow-In Bindings is quite new and is a hybrid of the step-in and strap systems. This Type of Snowboard Bindings tries to combine the control of Strap Bindings with the ease of Step-in Bindings. Flow-In Bindings look rather similar to Strap Bindings and also allow you to use soft boots. The notable difference is that, unlike the two or three straps that cover the top of your feet in Strap Bindings, the Flow-in Bindings have only one large tongue that covers a large part of the top of your Snowboard Boot. Getting into and out of your Bindings is a matter of flipping the highback backwards and entering or exiting your boot. Flow-in Bindings are becoming more popular as the choices and Techniques of Snowboarding improve. People love the Flow-in System as it combines all the advantages of the Strap Bindings with the ease of Step-ins. One disadvantage however is that Flow-in Bindings are more difficult to adjust than strap-ons. Plate Bindings Plate Bindings Plate Bindings, also known as Hard-Boot Bindings, consist of a hard baseplate, steel bails, and a heel or toe lever. This Type of Bindings is used in combination with Hard Boots that can be inserted into the bails. By flipping the lever, the boots are strapped firmly into the Bindings. The features of the Plate Bindings are the closest to a traditional Ski Binding and their rigid responsiveness provides maximum leverage and power for high-speed carving and riding on hard snow. Plate Bindings and hard boots are mostly preferred by Alpine Racers who need the extra edge control that they get from this combination. Baseless Bindings This Type of Bindings was introduced in the mid 1990's by several companies. In Baseless Bindings, the sole of the Snowboard Boot is placed in direct contact with the Snowboard deck by removing the Binding's baseplate. With this, the sole height is lowered by up to 1/8 of an inch. Theoretically, using the Baseless Bindings enhances the ""feel"" of your Snowboard's flex. However, this Type of Snowboard Bindings aggravates ""toe drag"" problems for people with large feet. Also, most Baseless Bindings are far more difficult to adjust (stance angle/width) than traditional ""4x4"" designs. Still, Halfpipe and park riders prefer Baseless Bindings because it provides them with a quicker edge response. The choice of what Type of Snowboard Bindings to use usually comes down to personal preference and finding the right Snowboard Boot first. If you feel that the convenience of stepping in outweighs the additional control you can gain, then it is best to go for that particular Style of Binding. Regardless of which Type of Binding System you wind up with, don't head for the slopes until you know exactly how to get in and out of them. With or Without Highbacks? The large curved piece of plastic screwed to the base of the binding is the Highback. Its main function is to give riders some control over their Snowboard's Heel Edge. These can be found on all Bindings or are built into the boot with some Step-in Systems. Alpine riders who need to perform high speed turns will prefer taller and stiffer Highbacks for greater control and improved edge control. On the other hand, Freestylers will want a shorter backplate for more flexibility and turning power. Snowboard Boots and Bindings form a combination wherein not all Kinds of Bindings are suited for each type of Snowboard Boot. It is often best to buy them together. In here, knowing your intended Snowboarding Style is crucial before buying a combination of boots and bindings. "
