152 Sub Zero Owners i need help!

ok, so i am currently in the market for a super soft park board (ideally the subzero) and i am worried that the 152 may be a little narrow for my bindings (L/XL union Contact SLs). I have gone to all my local dealers of nitro and none of them have the board so i can't measure how wide the board is my self.

What i am asking of you sub pop owners is kinda a lot, but i was wondering if you could measure the width of your board (inches or cm) at the 24 inch stance mark and post up how wide it is.

I am just worried i am going to have binding over hang cause they currently have the toe ramp at the smallest setting and fit just perfectly on the edges of my 148 capita stairmaster. i would be really grateful, o let me know if you measured on the base of your board or the top sheet of your board.

Thanks in advance to anyone that replies!

Too Fast!

considering the fact that the waist width is 246 mm on the 152, it's not looking good

BA-NA-NA. Say it again now BA-NA-NA

I had the Sub Pop which was the early release of the Sub Zero. The inserts were not drilled center but were actually set forward about an inch. See thread here - http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...=nitro+inserts

yeah, but you have to take into consideration that the sidecut radius is really small, which makes it narrow at the WW and wider at the inserts so it may actually come out to be close to my stairmaster.

I would confirm that they fixed it for sure!

BTW...I rode Forum Republic L/XL bindings with size 11 Northwave boots on my 152 Sub Pop and it was fine....23" stance, 15/-15.

Didn't realize this was here too =)

L/XL from Union will be fine on it in the 152. Thats the size my friend is riding, about 22.5in wide and 15/-15, and he has zero problems.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
