08 Ride Spi vs 08 Nrc or 09 Nrc
Stats: 28, Male, 195 Lbs
Current Setup: 2010 SL-R, '08 Ride Spi (large), 15/-15, 23.5 in stance, 08/09 Solomon F24's (10.5)
Ability: Intermediate, 80/20 split between freeride and park (jumps only)
I've been having a lot of foot pain while riding recently and thought it could be attributed to my insoles in my boots. I went out and got some superfeet, but I'm still having the same issue. After reading on the forums about canted footbeds possibly alleviating foot pain I figured I'd try it out. Here are my questions:
How would the flex compare between an 08/09 ride spi and the 09/10 ride Nrc? I like the response I get from my spi's, so going to something that is more freestyle oriented (per the manufacturer) kind of worries me.
To get my foot centered on my board I currently have adjusted my spi's so that the gas pedal is all the way out, and the heel cup is in the furthest back setting. I can get the 08/09 Nrc on sale but only in an XL, but I'm worried about the fit width wise.
Lastly, if the Nrc is softer than I'd prefer, could I swap my 08 spi highback onto either the 08/09 or 09/10 Nrc?
Sorry about the length but thanks for the help
