OH, yes, you gotta go with Large! I wear Ride Jackson boots in a size 10 and they go together like PB and J--- perfectly! Without question the XL would be too big...
I went through the same thing last year with some drake bindings. I ended up getting the larges instead of the xls. They fit perfect with the 10.5s and look way smaller on your board. If they dont fit right out of the box. Go to your local snowboard shop and buy longer straps.

These bindings work for everything I do - a little bit of park and a little cruising around at Brighton and Snowbird. I ride about 10-12 days a year and ski about 75, so I wanted one binding that would do it all and last for a while. The gummy toe strap really locks the heel into the binding and there is enough stiffness in this binding to keep things in order. Not quite as burly as the hihger end offerings from Ride, but mine are holding up fine. The medium binding fits my size 10 Nitro boots great and I'm riding these on a 158 K2 Slayblade.

Do the ankle straps come loose on these cuz that's been a problem with all my bindings.

No problem with the ankle straps on mine. As you are riding just keep in mind that your boot is flexing the entire time and will pack-in throughout the day, so you will have to tighten the straps at times, maybe even during a run--- that's just a part of it, unfortunately. cheers!
I've ridin these about 11 times this season, and I've had

how would you like a very durable, yet very comfortable binding for $160? well then this is the binding for you... this binding is priced so well that there isnt a binding out at the same price that can claim the same durability features combined with the amount of comfort and ease of use that this binding can claim... with a comfort ankle strap, you not only have a very well designed ankle strap but it has enough cush to please the most picky riders out there... a convertible grip toe strap helps you place the strap wherever you want to ride it and helps it stay in place better than any others... not to mention the wedgie footbed, this helps align your knees for more power and less fatigue.... this binding has it all so why wouldnt you want it...
Yes they will. They come with a plate that is compatible with both 4x4 and 3D mounting.

I was at the local board shop and was talking about my EX's i picked up for my Park Pickle. the Tech. was telling me how he had used ride bindings and loved them but shortly realized that due to thier all metal frame they would not allow the board to have true flex and soon it would warp the board. Now, the Union Cadets have the cusion between the board and binding. could i make my own cusion to put between my binding and board without loosing function?

Think about this--- Isn't a snowboard designed to be "warped"? We just call it a different name, "flex". That tech hasn't thought about it at all! Now, as Union (and Forum) claims there may be a little more dead board space when using bindings that don't have a split baseplate (Forum Shaka) or specially shaped baseplate (Union). But have a look at the EX baseplate and look at how rounded and removed the edges are. They do that to allow enough room for the board to flex in its natural arc and also to prevent cracking.
ALSO, consider that the Unions are not just a standard binding with foam glued onto its baseplate. EVERYTHING is considered in the design and engineering to make it perform well but also to keep it SAFE. If you want the Union feel then get Union bindings, someone would undoubtedly buy your EX from you. cheers...

Picked up these 2010 Ride EX bindings for my K2 Turbo Dream and they are a superb combination. I love the ease of on-hill adjustment (no tools) and set-up. Only one gripe--- the bolts that attach the heel cup to the chassis constantly loosened up the first 5 times up the hill. The same thing happened to my wife's 2010 Ride VXN bindings which are the women's version. After a day of riding we'd have to crank it all back together as tightly as possible but after the next time up everything had settled again and we'd repeat the process. It seems now, however, that all has broken in and settled just fine.
I fully understand that gear needs time to settle in BUT as someone who has been riding a long time and has tried various brands/models this seemed excessive. Luckily I know to check my gear and have the tools to make the adjustments...
SO, I fully recommend these bindings in terms of feel and responsiveness--- they are bad-ass! But be aware that you will need to tighten the hell out of these things after a full day's shredding, atleast after the first several times up.

I bought these a little over 2 weeks ago, so Ive only rode them 10 or 11 times. But so far so good. The convertible toe strap is nice. And they over all feel is nice. I think the wedgie system is worthless. It comes with the 1.5 and I can't tell. I might upgrade to the 4.0 to see what it feels like. I also chose the franken color, SO DAMN UGLY. But, thats what I wanted. I actually get a lot of complements on them. If you're in this price range for a new binding, I say go for it.

Just got these yesterday. At 6 in the morning. I got them for $100 at SPORTS AUTHORITY. I got them that low because it was BLACK FRIDAY. I hope they are very good because the guy that sold them to me said they were the best he has ever used. Cant wait to use them.I like the fact that the bottom strap is a jelly material. And the Whole binding itself is Metal.
