Find your snowboard binding size
- What’s the point of this?
There is a lot of confusion around snowboard binding sizing and rightly so. It would be so easy if there were a single standard for binding sizes that was used by all manufacturers but this is far from the case. Each manufacturer sets their own size range for each of their products and not only do they not match the size ranges of other manufacturers, they often vary from other products that they offer themselves. This is a short way of saying that no rider has “a binding size” that will work every time. It takes a bit of digging. This used to mean visiting a number of manufacturer sites, locating their size charts (when available) and deciphering the information that was given. This site aims to offer up the manufacturer sizing information from all brands in a single easy to use interface. We have also included a few of our own notes where we think those may be helpful.
- Why are there two results for some boot sizes?
Two sizes are shown when the boot size that you have entered boot size is included in the manufacturer’s recommended size ranges for more than one of its binding sizes. In other words, you have an "overlap size" for that product. For example in Burton's Men's bindings a US Men's size 10 boot is considered to fit both in a Medium or a Large binding.
- Doesn’t the specific boot model matter?
In some instances, yes. This site is intended to provide an informed starting point for your binding search. It is based on the manufacturer’s suggestions for their current products and it is typically enough to make a buying decision. If you have a boot that you think might cause a problem (for example: unusually wide, narrow, long, short, high volume, low volume) or if you are concerned about an overlap size please drop us an email. We are happy to get specific for you.
- Why are there Mondopoint sizes like 283 listed?
Good Question. True, all snowboard boots will have a Mondopoint size that will end in either a zero or a five (for example 280 or 285) and you will never see a boot labeled 283. We included those middle values as well so the sizer could also be used as a quick foot size/boot size converter. For example a foot length of 283 mm is suggested for a US 10.5 boot.
