Default Skate Banana, 159 or 159 Wide?

I just picked up a 2011 Skate Banana 159cm. The shop I ordered from said that I would not need the wide version because the Magne-Traction helps out with the potential toe drag and on top of that I got Burton Ozone boots which claim to reduce a full boot size on the outside of the boot.

So Im rocking size 12 boots with the 159 board. I plan to ride it ducked out, 15 degrees negative and 15 degrees positive. Anyone here have any knowledge of the Banana and if I will be okay with this setup?

Thanks

You're totally fine.

I have size 13 burton boots on a 159 banana and I never get any toe drag. 25.5 width is enough.

Enjoy the new ride!

if one want to test it out. just strap your bindings on the board and then without putting your boots on tighten them up and strap them into the bindings. then push the board into the ground on the toe and heel edge to see at what angle (if ever) you may get toe drag.

Thanks, yeah I took it out today and it was a great ride. I get really good carves out of the board, but I feel like its a little wobbly when I start to gain some straight a way speed, do you ever have the same issues?

i have the same issue, but it really isnt a big one. its a reverse camber board, so it is going to get a little loose when you're doing mock 10. it SHREDS so hard though, best board out there now. enjoy!

Yeah It's definitely not the best for charging down hard at speed. It's perfect for the ice coast though and it's fun as hell on a pow day.
