North entity pads n straps on board without tracks?

Postby faklord » Fri Sep 21, 2012 7:40 am

Does anybody have experience with fitting North entity pads n straps on board without tracks...
Specifically in my case a Shinn Monk.

Does it work ok, or do you end up with the pads horribly offset?


Thanks
Dave

I have my NTT straps on a Carved board and they work fine with plenty of adjustment. Not as much as boards with tracks, but still good. I have a Shinn monk here and I can try it for you on the monk. I'll let you know soon!

I have a monk 132x41 and the entity pads only fit if you put one end on the more open position hole and the other on the hole more near to the handle bar. The offset is not a problem but you can't put them on the more narrow position screw holes.
The entity screw positions is really wide.......................

I feel better my monk running it on the more narrow position so I ended removing them and keep the original Shinn pads.

So.. Can you tell me the distance between the pad mounting screws, if each screw is at the mid point of its slot? Does that make sense?

Thanks

Ok, so here are a few pics.

First of all, there is only one width. The NTT straps use the most outside screwhole and the most inward one. The first pic is the most ducked out stance possible, and the second pic is the least ducked out stance possible. Notice the screw markings.

And finally here is a pic with the Cabrinha Sync bindings on the board. They fit very well with complete flexibility of movement.
