the x8v is an x8 with vapor skin its supposed to be lighter (by like .7 pounds not such a big deal) but the vaporskin is also supposed to add support.  last year it was only available in japan and no one at burton seems to even know about it for the 09 line from what i hear but if you click on the x8 from the front page of the 2009 burton thread there is a mysterious picture on the bottom showing a couple of black x8v's next to a few x8's

The X8V is a Japanese only release this year again.  That was probably a picture from a showroom, not a salesfloor.

From time to time we do get in some Japanese release, but it's not super common.  Two seasons ago we had the Auras, this year we had the Avenue..... so you never know!

I'll clear this up for everyone.

X8V is not just an X8 with Vaporskin.  The X8V has vapor skin, a Dragon Fly core (i.e. the same wood core as the other X boards), stainless steel edges and lastly, a different sidecut.  So basically it's a different board.  For '08/'09 X8V will have ICS and it will come in 151.5, 154.5 and 157.5.

As far as where it's sold, it is technically Japan only.  However, the black '07/'08 version (which only came in 154.5) was sold in limited quantities at the Burton Soho store for a retail price of $650.  There was also a late release '08 151.5 that was blue/pink and had ICS.  As far as I know, the 151.5 never made it to the Soho store but maybe they have one or two "in the back".  There is still a 154.5 '08 X8V at 40% off in Soho as of a couple days ago. 

Not sure if there is spoon tech on the tip/tail for '09.

The ICS EST system really makes a difference when riding. I rode the 08 Burton Custom with Custom Bindings and that was a sick ride. Then a few weeks later i rode an early release Burton ICS Custom with Cartel EST bindings. If i didnt know that they were both Custom snowboards when i rode them than i would have thought that they were not even remotely the same board.

The ICS EST system makes everything more fluid when riding. It is pretty sick. Im definitley stoked off this new innovation to snowboarding.
Never give up... Persevere to the end!

Thats not the only difference with the X8V. The X8V was orginally made in Japan were park wasn't so hot, so the earlier models were stiffer, however this years model has a feel of 2. Thats less that the US model the X8! Its a buttery soft board full of pop because of the Carbon 1-beam (also availiable on the un...inc). But thats not all, it has a dragon fly core along with vapor skin. This board also comes with the new 09' tech, the scoop.
 It helps you to stop hanging up on the edges on those rails, and crappy old boxes. It also comes with ICS. This board is clearly on top. Everything that the US model has exept more! (I-beam and scoop, feel of 2)
     Not only that but it also works great in the pipe, and pow!
 
09 X8V Specs is as following.
-FEEL: 2
-The Channel       
-BASES: Sintered N2O WFO Base
-FIBERGLASS: Carbon Vaporskin, Triax Response Fiberglass, Carbon I-Beam
-CORE: Dragonfly Core, Negative Core Profile
-EGD: Multizone EGD
-EDGES: Edges with Grip and Rip Tune, Stainless Steel, Pressure Distribution
-EXTRAS: Vapor Tech, Infinite Ride, Pro-Tip, Scoop, Elliptical Kicks

the burton rider service in the states, japan, and even active ride shop said that the scoop tech is only on the 09, not the 07/08 late realease.

i'm pretty sure the OLS version of the japanese x8 does not have scoop... but infiniti would know as he owns one.... pretty sure scoop was released this year with the Fix and Seven.... but i defer to the man who owns one. pretty big difference between scoop and no-scoop.
2010? More Like 1910

yes they all have scoop, but the con-dom has freebase, where its scoop all around the edge of the board.

Neidermeyer knows that we don't want to confuse frivolous made up marketing terms like negative camber, scoop, reverse backflip steez and rocker....

Yes they all do. Except the con-dom has a feebase. Its pretty much like having scoop tech all around your board.

Actually, the staff at the Soho store said that they're going to get a few in this year too, but they say it's harder to move them because not to many people know about it.
