Question Bataleon Goliath mounts

Hey, had a search earlier today but couldn't find the info I was needing so hope someone can help.

I've just bought a 2012/13 Bataleon Goliath 160W and been trying to work out what holes I should use.

On the back of the board there is a info guide thing that says the stance width of the board is 58cm which seems ideal (from what i've read) as from the floor to top of my kneecap is just under 60cm.

For each binding there are 12 holes in the pattern :::::: and there is a marker that points to 4 of the holes which I assume is the manufacturers recommendation. From the outermost recommended hole on the left set of mounts to the equivalent hole on the right is 58cm but I read on a thread on here that your stance width is measured from the centre of the binding not the outer mounting hole but this only measures to 54cm.

So I'm confused

If anyone could tell me where I'm going wrong then it'd be great

the markings on the inserts i believe are the center stance for that board.

when you are measuring your stance, it is from the center of the bindings to bindings.

Thanks for the reply.

So they don't necessarily match the stated stance width of 58cm then and
I'll need to go wider than the marked inserts?

personally for me, i've always used the center stance mark on the board to start out. measure from there. i ride either 23-22 inch stance. so if the center markings on the board are 22/or 23 i leave as is. if there not, i just adjust my bindings to the stance i want, and make sure its centered on the board. but thats assuming you want a center stance.

I believe that boards inserts are made to get alot more customization then a regular board.
