I'm interested in a set of CWB Boss bindings online, but I am curious about sizing. They are size large (11-12) and I have size 12 feet. However, if they run small, I wil be stuck with a pair of bindings that are too tight. No good. There are no local dealers in my town who carry CWB bindings for me to try out. Do any of you know if these run on the small or large size?

XL you should be fine, I wear a 12 or 13 in shoes and have an XL pair of Zeus. They are an 04 and are better than the bosses. I am willing to sell them, used for one set and liked my ions better. Email me

Is it just me, or do the '05s seem tighter than the '04s?

You definetly want the XL Boss, I tried on a pair of the Larges and they just fit me and i'm a 10 1/2. Check out the Zues as well.

Fruit: The 05s are running smaller for sure. I think the 04 stuff is still way more comfortable. The new materials are harder and tigher.

I think the new Boss's look sick looking but i'm not overly happy with the tight fit. They are not better than my 2002 Parks Bindings.

My ,son got a pair Md boss and they were to tight, He wears a size ten shoe made his feet fall asleep. went with a large Zues feel great.So yes I think CWB bindings run small for 05.

I've heard that the '05s are a little tighter 'cause the overlays are screwed down from the top, instead of the side ('04s). Either way, great bindings, just go a size larger for the '05s. Anxiously waiting for my 05' Absolute Plat 141 / '04 Med Zeus's to get here . Ripped the overlays on my Belmonts last time I rode.

Yeah go with the xl's. The zeus binding is alright they are to stiff for me and the overlay kills my foot. The boss is a bit more flexible and and alot more comfortable. I love them. I don't think you will regret buying the boss but everyone is different.

Basically the Zeus will give you a little more support. The Boss is for solid hold down, yet the flexibility to tweak out your grabs. I have Mediums & have an 8 foot. For '05 I feel they are similarly sized but I think are softer. The Zeus ankle strap is a softer material but the footbed seems a little denser.

I just bought 05 Zeus. I take a size 12 shoe but I went with the Large rather then XL. The XL foot beds are the same Length as the Large, the only difference being the width. I have a narrow foot so the Large works for me. Also the bindings are going to stretch an extra 5%.
One more thing. I would like to say thanks to CWB and Zane for producing the sickest bindings ever, these being the 05 Zeus of course.

The Boss' were more Zane's binding, the Zeus has become Andrew's boot.
