Board compatible with Naish Apex pads

Postby Pierrot » Sun Mar 02, 2014 11:39 pm

Hi,

Naish seems to use a 6 inches insert spacing. And Naish Apex bindings can only take that exact insert spacing...
Beside Naish boards, what are the other boards on which you can fit these wonderfull pads ?

Thanks

Laluz...I have them on there. They won't fit on my crazy fly board though :( But the Cf pads are pretty good anyhow.

Got the answer it also works on LiquidForce and Flexifoil...

Does someone has a 2014 brunotti or a Core fusion to measure?

I can't say if those pads actually fit on a Dundee (or any Shinn) board or not but I can guarantee you that Shinn pads to not use an exact 6" spacing. They use 155 mm while 6" converts to 152.4 mm. I know it seems close but you can't use bindings that require exactly 6" on them (like Liquid Force).

That's not a particularly helpful reply is it?
LF Bindings are not Naish pads & straps :roll:

As I said earlier, the Naish Apex pads & Straps do fit my Dundee & my Speedball :thumb:

Next you will be saying the screw tread is different between Shinn & LF :roll:

6" spacing has been the industry standard for a few years, so you might be better off asking which boards don't have standard spacing.

should be fine with north, slingshot, best, cabrinha, liquid force, naish, tona, flexifoil, xenon, axis, ocean rodeo, blade... that's all I can think of off the top of my head

That´s a good point... So out of these, wich brand has a freeride/freestyle board with the following caracteristics: very light weight, great pop, great upwind, good lowend, super comfortable in chop.
This would be my next board :heartface:
