Snowboard Completes Sizing Chart


Snowboard Length Sizing:

A recent survey showed 85% of pro riders revealed that on average they rode boards that are 85% - 92% of their height. The formula to live by is: Rider Height (inches) x 2.54 x 0.88 = Suggested Board Length (cm). And presto, you have the perfect board for you in all conditions. Right? Wrong!!

Keep in mind that there is no magical formula for every rider. It's more or less determined by terrain, conditions and most of all, personal preference. In general, an overall greater cm length will yield a board that can be controlled at and attain greater speeds. In addition, longer boards are better performers and float more in powder due to their increased surface area. Shorter overall lengths yield a board that is more maneuverable and offer a lower swing weight.

Snowboard Width Sizing:

Board width is as important, if not more important, than overall length in selecting the right board for you.
A board that is too narrow in relation to a rider's boot will cause toe and heel drag. With a board that's too wide, the rider will not be able to put adequate pressure on the toe and heel edge, thus creating an unresponsive ride.
Use the following chart to gauge the relationship between your boot size and board.

Snowboard Boots

General Boot Sizing Guide

As a general rule of thumb your snowboard boots should fit like any other boot that you have in the house - be it a hiking, work or motocross boot. The key is that you should have some toe movement along with a solid heel hold. With time you're boots will 'break in'. The padding within the boot will compact and you may experience a slight increase in space. This is why it is critical that a boot fit snug both as it relates to the toe movement as well as to the heel hold.

Heel Hold: The most important concern when sizing a boot is you're heel hold. To get a proper sense of a boot's performance you absolutely must lace it up and give it a good go. If you want to take it to the next level, strap yourself into your bindings, placing your other foot on the board, and check to see if you can lift your heel within the boot. A shortcut for this is to stand on the toe of your boot and go through the same steps.

Toe Feel: If you are in doubt as to where the pressure on your toes is coming from, simply pull out the insole and measure your foot against it. If the length is ok then you know that the pressure you're feeling is not because your boot is too small, rather the pressure is coming from the padding that surrounds your toe. With just a few hours of riding, or walking around your house, this pressure will be eliminated once the padding compresses

Custom Fit: Not all riders find themselves in possession of the perfect foot. It's either too long and skinny or short and wide. This is where aftermarket foot beds or heat moldable liners come into play. A number of today's boots are equipped with a liner that will mold to your foot once worn a few times. A less expensive option is the old reliable Dr.Scholl's foot beds that not only give you a comfy ride but also serves to take up some of that extra room that you may have in your boot.

Sizing the younger rider

The vast majority of the groms out there, provided that they are not in the toddler stages, can rock any adult boot on the market - provide the sizing is available. The really little ones however need to focus on the really little boots ranging in size from 1 to 13. These boots are not only cut shorter but they also offer the support that these big helmet wearing trolls need when bombing the hill.

For the younger riders please use the following measurements as a loose guide in selecting the proper boot sizing. To determine your child's mondo point size, you can measure the length of your foot sole in centimeters. This measurement will be your mondo point size.

Snowboard Bindings

How to choose the right size binding.

Each binding will have a boot size in parentheses that fits that particular binding. So, choose bindings according to your boot size.

Example: Binding L/XL (9-13) fits boot size 9-13.

Please note that Binding sizes are approximate. Since certain brand boots may vary in width/length and will generally fit into the corresponding binding sizes.

Women's Bindings

Women riders should pay special attention to the binding that is selected. We have three types of bindings in our shop; Men's(Unisex), Women's and Youth bindings. Sizing for the Women's bindings is a given and should pose no problem. A unisex binding or one labeled as men's should present no greater hurdle than making you reevaluate the sizing range. Simply correct for the smaller women's boot size by adding 1 to 1 1/2 sizes to the existing size range of the binding. This will give you the women's range that the binding will accommodate.

Example: If you have a women's size 9-9.5 boot, choose a men's binding that fits a men's size 8 boot.

Youth Bindings

Younger riders should also pay special attention to the binding that is selected. Any of the three gender groupings would serve as an adequate option due to the rider's lighter weight without stressing the binding. Depending upon the gender of the young rider sizing of the unisex or women's bindings also needs to be calculated.
