    Posted: Apr/21/2011 at 2:48pm
i am rocking out a ns sl 155 this season and just found out the setback is +2 inches. i have a ns titan and that is +2 inches back and it's a big mountain freeride board. How can an SL have that much of a stance setback for a do-it all board? any thoughts?

I've heard that the setback on the SL is actually minimal, and that (I think) most of the setback comes from the fact that the nose and tail are slightly different in shape, making the reference points "setback" in relation to the overall board but not so much when compared to the contact points.  I do not ride an SL and I'm not POSITIVE about this, but someone told me this when I said I was possibly hesitant to buy an SL because of the setback.



And on top of that, for a do-it-all board, it's totally preference-maybe you like a little setback and you never ride switch, and then that would be perfect for you!

hi spenser,

nah i measured the binding inserts from the nose and then bindings inserts to the tail and the difference was 2 inches. i think i ride switch some what okay but i just feel like 2 inches is such  huge setback. do you know anyone who takes an SL to the park and hitting big jumps? i feel scared with the setback.

I don't have any friends who ride an SL.  I mean, you could totally ride it on big jumps, there may just be better boards out there for that.  From what I've heard about the SL, it'lll be super solid on landings, I just don't know how much I'd like landing switch with that big of a setback.

measure from the inserts to the contact point, my billy goat for example has 3/4 of set back to my nose was 1.5 longer then my tail right but the chassis (contact point to inserts to contact point) was twin so it rides switch on groomers like a twin but floats like it's setback.

The SL is setback a 1/2", not 2". It is set-back in relationship to the effective edge. If you really don't like it 1/2 set back, then its really easy to center your stance by changing the inserts you use and how you orientate your mounting disk.

As for the rest of your concerns i have to say this: You are kidding right? You are a scared of big jumps because of a little set back? Something tells me if you're scared of that then A) you have other issues with your riding to worry about, and B) The jumps you are hitting aren't big. Too me it rides pretty much the same reg and switch.

Never-mind the hyped brain-wash of having a true-twin, centered, board and answer me this:
How much do you actually ride switch?
How much do you actually LAND switch?
Is a 1/2" really even a concern? Look at a 1/2" on a ruler and honestly tell me it worries you.

My guess, this shouldn't be a worry for you at all.
I'm just here to look cool...

I measured from the top of the nose to the very beginning of the binding inserts and top of the tail to the very beginning of the binding inserts. The difference was 2 inches. Is that how you measure it correctly? I guess it's a psychological thing. I ride switch 50% of the time because our mountains suck and we don't get that many powder days. Gotta keep on challenging myself right? I hit 30 footers but haven't landed switch yet. im just worried about the setback making it harder to land switch thats all.

so you measure contact point to the inserts? not top of the nose/tail to the inserts?

yep because the contact points are what matter when it comes to riding on the groomers it's the last place your board touches the snow, measuring from the tip of your nose and tail only tells you the board has a longer scoop on the nose which doesn't affect how it rides on groomers just pow.
