I have an '07 CrazyFly Allaround board with the standard CrazyFly footstraps. I cannot STAND them!!! I have tried tightening them all the way, loosening them up, booties/no booties, and I cannot stay in them! I am constantly slipping out just enough while in the air so a jump I should have landed with ease, I end up wiping out! Or the slightest amount of chop makes me lose footing. The only way I can semi-stay in them is to jam my foot in so hard and duck my feet out with so much force that I have bruises on the outside of both feet that won't heal since I am out kiting a couple times a week :baby: . So, please give me your recommendation for what footstrap I should replace them with. I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! :angryfire:

My vote also goes to the Underground. They are avaliable in tre sizes. They are easy to mount and they function good. Only downside: They are a bit heavy.
Liquid force lux pads are also very good. They are a bit more difficult to mount though.

For SURE the LIQUID FORCE COMP STRAPS. They mould to your feet, and your feet is really held in the footstrap.... but your feet still can get out easily when you crash. Your foot will also NOT slide in when you land a big moove. They are also adjustable like the wakeboard binding.... where the comp straps originates from. Totally the strap to go for! I would not ride with anything else than those.

Yes, there's probably a reason for all the pro riders uses the LF Lux/Comp pads ... and their sponsors strap!

Well, I ended up with the LF Comps. They are awesome! When I first mounted them, I mounted them too close to the toe edge so I could not dig my heel edge in very well. But I took them off and moved them back one hole and what a difference! I could edge really well, my feet didn't hurt, I can actually leave the bindings fairly loose and they still don't slip around in a jump, however I could kick the board off if I needed to. Great bindings! I highly recommend them!

Thanks to everyone for the advice! :thumb:

Nice that you found good straps. I'm also looking for new footstraps because the ones that was on my Cabrinha custom -06 is to tight and not comfortably at all.

The LF straps sounds interesting but how about to use them with booties? Is it easy to expand them so you can use them with booties and also tight them up so the are comfortably without booties?

Regards
