This might sound stupid, but my board, and others I have had in the past(all
freeride boards) usually said they had a setback. Whether it was 2", or in cm,
whatever. But if you measure the center of the front and back mounting holes,
it was more like a 3-4" setback(assuming you mounted the bindings in the center
I have read that you want about an inch or 2 of setback in your stance. (I
ride eastern groomed if it matters).
So after I figure out my stance width(about 19" or so), do I try to center the
stance on the board with a 2 " setback, or do I just use the center of the
front and rear holes and set the stance from there?
The way I was doing it was getting the stance width right, then measuring from
the front of the board to the center of the front binding, and then from the
rear of the board to the center of the back binding. And I would try to have
the back binding 2" closer to the back of the board than the front binding was
to the front of the board.
If I just centerd the stance using the middle of the binding holes, the
setback was more like 3-4". Then again, skiis use the center of the ski as the
spot where the toe sits-a lot more setback than a board.
I am on a Salomon400 now--and had an Airwalk Select last year. I had the same
problem with each. So any opinions out there?
