Sierra Says: The Palmer Burn is one of the best all mountain freestyle snowboards around. With a centered stance and a directional flex this board can be twined out for the extreme park days or setback for all mountain shredding. We recommend this board for the intermediate to advanced level riders who want to step up their freestyle performance but still maintain all mountain shred-ability. You will not be let down by its Klothoid sidecut either which is more forgiving so to allow easy edge to edge transitions while also being more catch-free. Launch big, ride fast, and shred hard with the Burn. Can we say Custom X Killer?

Palmer Says: Freestyle Powerhouse. Original winner of Transworld's Good Wood Top 10, the Burn features a smooth easy-to-turn Klothoid shape and a matt black over gloss topsheet finish. Combining rock solid, beech/poplar woodcore with lightweight Nomex Honeycomb in tip and tail. The Burn is soft enough for technical freestyle riding, but torsionally stiff enough for high-speed turns.

Base color may very.

"Palmer - Burn" 1/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (6) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Smoth Ride, Stronge Edge Hold, Very predictable
  • Cons:  may be too stiff for some,

Experience:   First off I got this board as a warranty return from last years model. Warranty service was a little hard to track down as HEAD handle the warranty issues for Palmer, but once i figured it out they were Awesome. Now on to the board. I am more of a All Mountain or Free Rider so i really dont spend much time in the park. When HEAD first told me what i was getting because my old board was now discontinued thought did cross my mind to sell the deck when i got it. Fortunately enough it looked so sweet I just had to take it out for a little taste. Thus far I have ridden it a couple of times in Utah and i have to say i like it very much. The board can storm the groomers and carves nice in the POW even though it is not a powder board. This board like all Palmers has great stiffness and is fast but can nose dive quick if the POW is over a foot and you lean too far forward (End of the Day Mistake). I really like the POP on the board and the edge hold is close to godliness. I would highly recommend this board to anyone who likes to go fast, hit nice drops, and wants a solid deck that rides harder than them. I wish i could give a better review on the park for this board but its just not my thing. However i am keeping the board and can hardly wait to ride it again.

Comments & Questions



Gen WHAT----
An update to this Review. This has become my go to board. I have ridden Whistler, Mammoth, Brian Head, Snow Summit, and Mt. Baldy on this board and yes it is my go to board. There is nothing else like it on the mountain, any mountain! Yeah I have a powder board, and yeah I have been riding some park on my softer board (Not a park rat) but riding this thing is kind of like ordering my favorite meal on the menu at my favorite restaurant. I never leave disappointed and I can’t wait to go back no matter how sh*&y the service is. I spent the last weekend at Mammoth with over 60 inches of snow before I rode the mountain and one day with a full foot while on the mountain. Yeah a powder board can float better in pure powder but it can’t match the speed, the turning ability, or confidence this board inspires. I cashed my powder board in the first day and stuck to this for the last two. Fast runs through the trees on chair 25 sweet turns and great pow jumps. I have yet to find this boards limits although I have found mine a couple of times. My wife does not have to worry about another woman but she better keep an eye on this board. I might not come home one weekend. OH and TruSnow…. What the Heck??? No Palmer 2011 boards!?!?!?! Pull it together man!

"I GUESS THAT'S WHAT AN OVER $500.00 BOARD FEELS LIKE!" 4/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Powder,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Light, Holds an edge like nothing I ever tried before, Sick Graphics!

Experience:   I have purchased this board because I simply couldn't stay away from the steal Sierra Snowboard offered: MSRP $559.00, I got it for $179.00!!! The best snowboard purchasing decision I have ever made! This board is amazing! As an all-mountain rider, I am loving it; the direction change feels like it's almost telepathic, you just think which way to go and this board takes you there. I rode groomed and ungroomed trails from frozen snow to slush, this board did not disappoint. It felt very stable, it can turn on a dime, holds an edge very-very-very good, it's light, all in all an exceptional board!

"Burn baby Burn" 5/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,High Speeds,Jibs,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  so fast!, great edge, no shaking at high speeds
  • Cons:  NOT ENOUGH STOCK,

Experience:   as far as my riding style i love the ungroomed runs, meaning i wanted a board that could handle incredibly well. however when i went onto trusnow at the very beginning of the year i had my heart set on this palmer after hearing only great things about it. but the only size left was a 160, after much hought i risked it and bought this and a reverse crew, and boy did it pay off. the board handled like a dream and i was calving between the trees like no other. i would go as far as to say this is one of the best boards i have ever ridden.

Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's

  • Use:  High Speeds,Park,Powder,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Smoth Ride, Stronge Edge Hold, POP!!
  • Cons:  Can be too stiff for some,

Experience:   I own the 2009 Palmer Burn at the recommendation from the Sierra Team. I am an all mountain rider that is still learning the park. This board is an amazing board for the price (got it for $150). This board has great pop for the park, but is also stiff so you can carve up the mountain.

"A Great all around board" 7/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Easy turn initiation, Rides switch with ease, great on groom, pow, bumps, park and pipe!
  • Cons:  The base picked up dirt and got slow in the spring,

Experience:   I bought this board last year in the summer and got a great price from Sierra! It rides so well in all conditions. I would recommend this board to any one that is looking to improve their riding. This board performs well in all conditions, from hard pack ice to powder. I ride in the the mid west(Indiana, Perfect North Slopes, to be exact)hard pack is common. this board handled it all .I rode out west this spring and was lucky to get two powder days, the board as great. I rode park and pipe and the board performed well. I would recommend this board to any one.

"Burn down the mountain" 5/4/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Carving,Chop,Crud,Groomers,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Powder
  • Pros:  Light and stiff, Good graphics without being too flashy, Super stable at high speeds
  • Cons:  Topsheet scrapes off easy around binding mount,

Experience:   This is my first high dollar snowboard, it was well worth the money. The burn has really good edge hold at high speeds or going down the steeps. Super stable at high speeds bombing down black diamonds at N* and other steep trails. On powder days it did good but it will leave your back leg burning. Cuts thru ice like its nothing. Has good pop to make your ollies higher. After a couple days od riding I noticed that around the binding mounts the topsheet was getting scratched off by the bindings. But since its under the bindings when riding you wont notice it. Other than that its a really good board that will enhance your skills or take them further.

"Refreshingly fun board" 4/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Fun ride, Versitile, Graphics
  • Cons:  Not as fast as I hoped,

Experience:   So I finally hooked up a new board after riding the same Salomon for a bunch of years. I'm more of a powder snob but wanted an all mountain freestyle for spring park fun and cruising with my 9 year old son. I typically ride a 164 but went with the Burn in a 160. First impression on a 12 pow day is fun. I like the feel of a softer board. Switch riding is so much easier than my old board and I can finally do butters. Ollies are big and landings seem forgiving. The only down side is its not quite fast enough for some of the flats on Mt. Hood. That is more of a Meadows problem though. Bombing runs leaves me a little bit meh. Not as stable at high speeds but edges hold well enough. Maybe I should have got the 162......but then again I dig the maneuverability. It does float surprisingly well in the powder. I like it. Great all arounder.......and a steal of a deal from Sierra!

Experience:   This board is great for how I ride but chipped really easily at the tail. I can easily fix it by filing the nose and tail but I thought I would put that out their. If this didn't happen I wouldn't have anything to complain about.
