Okay, preface....I cannot try on the Fuse bindings....or I wouldn't have to ask. We are talking about leftover '06 bindings. My feet are BIG. Size varies by manufacturer, but in a NIKE I wear a 14. My feet also have very little arch and are WIDE.

How is the overall comfort level of the Fuse bindings compared to the LF Transits. I have tried on the transits and loved them. I would/will just get them if it comes to that, but I could package up a leftover Absolute/Fuse for quite a bit cheaper than getting the Absolute by itself and then going for the Transits through a different store.

Anyway, just wanted to know if all things considered, they are "close" in comfort level. Also, I hear the Fuse run pretty tight, which is not great with my wide feet.... Thoughts?

Last but not least.... If there are shop owners reading this and have some leftover stock in the Absolute 141(reg or plat) and/or Fuse XXL or Transit XXL that they want to send me an e-mail about.... That is great as well. ejbarlocker@slco.org


Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

i've never ridden either one, and unfortunately, the best advice i can give you is to NEVER buy bindings without at least trying them on. i could tell you that they're awesome or that they fit really well, but that probably won't help since they're my feet!

wes rides the transit and loves them. he, too, has big feet! anyway, i'll send him the link to this thread. sorry i wasn't able to help.

I love the transits (i rode two sets of parks before them). they finally make the transits big enough. my feet are size 14 but are on the narrower side. but i definitely wouldn't buy before trying to them out... good luck!

Yes, I have tried the Transits....and LOVED them. But if all things were equal, I'd get the Fuse.

That said, looks like I should just pay a little more and go the safe route.

dude, listen to Joe and do not buy unless trying them on. I went your route and it's not worth it. I have wide feet myself and the Transits killed me. Spend the extra cash on bindings that fit properly. It's no fun with your feet in pain after 15 minutes because you saved some $$$. I got back from the boat show last weekend with some '07 Hyperlite 3DS. Same as the '06. Fit is awesome. Had to shell out more dough, but it is worth it in the long run.
