It makes me want to do something like that for our creation but I cant think of any word play that works with Kite Mechanics and NoSno ;0) I would like to try out a Nompa at some point to see how the supple deck of the trampa rides with the NoSno trucks, i can imagine it is quite a sweet ride. We Should do a swap test, i have found the stering on mine to be almost identicle to the NoSno shortest setup with a tighter turning due to the slightly shorter wheelbase. I used 4mm thick carbon for the bush seats which has worked realy well and return to centre is good. I was thinking of running up a 40 degree or maybe a 42 degree deck for some experimental use, I am not to sure if the ride will be to twitchy or if it will wobble to much at speed but I think its worth a try. I will post a picture of the finnished article in a few days as we are waiting for and order of bits and we can then do the flow coat and grip tape.
Great work by the way, inspirational stuff you have going on!!

I'll probably bring my Nompa to every ATBA UK comp this year... and probably Serbia! Don't be afraid to ask for a go :) Thanks man! Would also love to try yours!

I've tried them on a Pro NoSno DH once.. but no, not properly Ben. Plenty of time to get used to them before the season starts.

cool, im sure you will love the leverage/sensitivity on heal-side turn :).

ive been thinking of buying a pair since i cant seem to get my hands on a pair of softs.
did you but small size ones? i assume the larger ones are hugs for normal shoes compared to snowboots

Awesome, I bought Medium ones that are meant for a size 6-8 snowboard boot even though my foot size is 9.5. Gonna be a walking boots thing :)

Tried em today and they fit perfect, a little weird having a backplate for hands down heelside slides but apart from that they're 100x better than standard MBS/Trampa Bindings.

Daleyg3 nice job.
I have same idea in my head. But before I will do anything I want to know exact parameters.
Do you know the exact weight on single noSno truck ? With 4 rubbers and 2 screws.

Regards.

Thanks, yeah without the hanger they're about 950 grams each. Total weight of this setup is about 10.5KG.
