Hey!

Last season I bought the Light Rail binding and the Salamon Malamute boots for my Mojo board. Already after the 3rd haik i noticed that my boots were full of scratches and marks back by the heel.
Anyone else experienced the same prob, and mayb have a solution for it?

Frode

Every binding/boot combo is gonna wear differently. My Karakoram SL heelcups dug huge gouges into the heels of my K2 T1's the first day I used em but that's something I think you need to adjust deal with with each combo of boots/binders. As long as it's just superficial I'll sacrifice some boot material/stratches/gouges for a good ride.

I have exactly the same problem!
I have the 2010-2011 lightrails and 2010-11 Malamutes. The bindings made a hole on the inside side at ankle/heels level. It is pretty deep and started after only on day!

I got wear on the side of my heel w/ Malamutes too but with Spark binders. Happened to every pair of boots since I started splitting. Nothing a little shoe goo cant mend.

Definitely specific to boot-binding peculiarities. I have Sparks, Light Rails, and (had) Karakorams and none of them made even a minor scratch on my Burton Driver Xs.
