If your into freeriding a little more than park, i would recommend the ES. Reason being is just that it seems as though burton gears its ES series towards the freeride sides of the chart. Stiffer flexing, faster bases, lighter weight... And even with the extra bells and whistles they still rip in the parks.

if you get an ES make sure you never ever ever hit a rail or box. The Sintered WFO base is so fast and so porous that it is extremely soft and will rip out and gouge on a small sliver from a box or rail. You will probably have at least one core shot in your base if you choose to do rails with this deck after a week or so.

Ive heard of ppl usin the baron es on rails with no prob, but also if i were to get the regular baron, it also has the sintered wfo base without vision and ppl use that in the park, is it just the vision part of the base that makes it bad on rails

anyways I wouldn't recommend using any high end base on rails because they are more porous than other bases and rip out easier. I had a Rome Flag last year which had the fastest base and it gouged a core shot the first time I ever used it on a rail.

looks like the board is more for groomers and halfpipe than rails.

You can slide rails and boxes on the es without causing a lot of damage. Its just not a strictly jib board, but for all mountain riding, fast riding, pow riding, it is dope

pick up a burton catalog and u can check out all the waist widths, etc. to see how ur foot might measure up on a particular length board.. they might also have it on their site but i haven't really looked thoroughly yet.

u shouldn't have any problems with toe/heel drag but just for fun what size ES were u looking into? and how tall are u? I ride a size 13 DC Halo on a 164 Baron ES occasionally and it's more than wide enough for me. I also ride a Rome Agent 158 which has a waist width of 255mm and it's not too bad on toe /heel drag with a 15, -15 stance. The only way u can get drag is if you're railing like a 75 degree angle turn. Which I never carve that hard on a park board. You'll be fine don't worry. I hope u dig it as much as i do.

If you're gonna spend a lot of time in the park with it then I would get a 159 but otherwise the 164 would be great.

Whatup Jd,

I've been riding the 164 Baron ES for the last two years with a size 13 boot.  I have no complaints and I've shredded it through the park, backcountry and boardercross events.  I have it hooked up with C60's and def. dig the feel and response.
