Sorry, I should have been more specific it's the 2011 Evil Twin Classic in a 156.

I know this is the 2012 thread, but have a quick question about a 2009 riot I picked up on here last year.

Always thought it had a sintered base, but the base dries up really fast. So I googled it now and find it has an extruded base. Can someone tell me if this is a lower end extruded base or something like syntruded like they have on other boards. Thanks.

My first choice for you would be the shorter 2012 154 with the new transitions.

Wiredsport -this is a great thread. I'd appreciate your feedback in this. I'm looking for a new park board/all mountain freestyle, and I'm leaning towards the Evil Twin. I currently ride a 154 Rome Agent, but it feels a little long for me (I'm 5'6/130 lbs). I demo'd an Evo last season, but I didn't like how it felt outside of the park. So I'm looking at a 2011 Evil Twin. Do you think this will be a god choice for me? And if it is, should I go with the 147 or 151 (when looking at the 2011 line). Thanks!

Sorry, I got completely confused on that. I meant it's a 155 evil twin classic (I don't think they made a 156). Do you think that's going to work out for me or should I still opt to grab a shorter board from you guys? Thanks again!

Thanks!

Hey,

got my Goliath 156 today. I put my boots on the board and they seem to be way too big..Dont have my bindings yet, but the overhang is about 2 cm..I attached some pictures below:

Do you think thats too much? I can just send the goliath back..But now I would have to pay about 100€ more, as the special is over

Also I looked up the exact size of my boots and they are EU44, UK10 and US11..Didn't have earlier access to the tag on the inside.

Yeah I thought about increasing my angles from 12/-12 to 90/-90 Will this work?

Seriously..Thats one of the most expensive Nitro boots and it has such a big footprint. Thats really bad..Any ideas?

Hi French,

With the normal lift from your bindings you will be in fine shape. When you have them mounted at your width and angles, you can test how much lean you will be able to get before you get drag. The board is the correct width for your feet. Boot padding is always the variable, but you look within a normal range.
