Choosing the Right Size Snowboard Binding

Mad Jack Outdoor offers a huge selection of snowboard equipment and an array of snowboard bindings.  We also have expert guides to help you make an informed decision.


In the market for snowboard bindings?  There are several important aspects to consider.  Before we dive into these aspects of sizing, let’s start at the beginning — Bindings are the connection between you and your snowboard, they literally transfer energy from your muscles onto the snowboard to tell it where to go and what to do. Therefore selecting the correct size binding affects the effectiveness and efficiency of the energy transfer. The bindings need to be sized so they are the correct size for your boots and board. The good news is it is not rocket science to do this correctly, and it doesn’t need to be 100% perfect.

 

Sizing with your Snowboard Boot

Typically bindings come in Small, Small/Medium, Medium, Medium/Large, Large and Large/XLarge.  Sadly there is not an industry norm for which boot size fits which binding size.  For example a large size binding in one brand might fit a size 12, but in another brand you would need an Large/Xlarge.

The table below, sourced from Snowboarding Profiles roughly shows what binding size to go with depending on your snowboard boot size and the brand:

Sizing with your Board

It is important that the bindings fit with the width of your board, to ensure proper performance. 

Truthfully, it all comes down to your boots.  If your board is the correct size for your snowboard boots and the bindings are the right size for the snowboard boot, then the bindings will be the correct size for the board. This is why you should buy your snowboard boots first, if you can.
