Slalom binding - width problem..

Hi all -

New to the forum. Purchased my first slalom ski last year - Radar Senate with Vector Boa bindings (size 10-14). Unfortunately the front boot is agonising due to the lack of width (I have wider than average feet). Could anyone recommend a wider / the widest binding available on the market?

Thanks in advance.
Tim

    I am not familiar with the Vector Boa but some bindings can be adjusted with the screw placement underneath, perhaps somebody can advise , if that is possible to do on the Vector Boa, I don't think so, there are other choices of bindings out there, but try to make sure it will position in the right place on your ski,
    Tfactor is a good binding that may allow you to alter width, but not sure about getting distance from tail on the Senate, Performance might be able to position a Tfactor on a Senate and tell you if you can get the measurement you want, they are very helpful.
    Probably a good idea to call performance and have a chat with them, they must of come across this problem before.

    I am 12.5 and a 4e wide, I use a reflex extra large with molded insert front. It is the most comfortable binding I have ever had.

    Since you seem to be based in UK, calling perfski might not work for you. If all you need is a couple more millimetres, you could try stretching the boot with a wooden block or similar wedge.

    There are some really good proshops in the UK, but it depends where you are in the country. PM me if you want

    The widest binding “off the shelf” is likely a Wiley. https://wileyski.com/slalom-bindings/

    I used to use animal xxl to get the width and still my sets were limited by foot pain. Now I use reflex and have zero issues

    I have T-factor, It is adjustable on the bottom by using the wider holes. I also customized by taking apart and grinding the edge to exactly match my foot. Now it fits like a glove and my foot never moves. Becasue it fits so well I can use losser upper and thus always releases when i need it to
