"Upgrade from last seasons" 12/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (11) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Crew Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  fast base,
  • Cons:  takes time to break in,

Experience:   I got the opportunity to ride this board one on one with the 2010 burton custom. The conditions were some dust on crust and some deeper pow lines. The first couple of runs on the Sierra Crew gave me the impression that it wasn't going to be that fun of a snowboard. It felt very stiff torsionally and wanted to chatter a little at high speeds. After 3 runs of buttering as much as i could and ollieing off everything i could, it started to loosen up quite a bit. If you get this board, make sure you ride it a bit before you make up your mind whether you like it or not. After about 10 runs on it, its flex started to feel more and more like the custom. Overall i took about 15 runs on the sierra crew and then the same on the burton custom. When I rode last years Sierra Crew, I found it to be a little sluggish, but this years was able to keep up when i tried to take it to the limits. When taking it through the tracked out pow, i was able to point it and go and it chopped through quite well. In deeper untracked snow it stayed afloat fairly easily even though i was riding the 156 mounted centered. I rode the same stance on the 56 custom and while the custom rode better in the untracked, the crew seemed to cut through the chop better. Due to the snowy conditions i was limited to which park features were open, but was able to hit a few boxes and smaller jumps. It was comfortable on both the boxes and jumps. Initially when looking at this board it seemed to be more directional than expected, but when riding switch it felt like a twin, which is due to its sidecut. Again due to the snow conditions i was unable to ride on groomers where i could really test the stability at higher speeds, but it stayed stable as fast as i could get it going. Overall i'd rate this board close to a 4 out of 5 because of the way it rides right out of the bag. I have a feeling that after a couple days on the snow it will rip.

Yeah, you definitly have to break it in first.

scorpius
hey donald, do you reckon a size 10 will fit this 156 board without too much toe and heel overhang? Thanks

sebastian23
Same here; i agree you have to break it in first. Was stiff the first few runs!



"Versatility from a park board" 8/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (7) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Nitro Rook
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Halfpipe,High Speeds,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  easy to press (buttery), great pop on jumps, stable on landings
  • Cons:  high speeds it gets a little shaky,

Experience:   I had the opportunity to ride the 2010 rook last season for about 5 days on the snow. Rode it in conditions ranging from hardpack groomer day, slush park lapping days and a 2ft+ pow day. On the icy day it made for a little shakiness at higher speeds but for a park board it handles quite well. On the slush days, it was outright amazing, fun in all aspects of the park, jibs great, jumps well and is stable in the pipe. What amazed me was the powder day on this board, i was riding the 155 and had no problems keeping a float and i still had the bindings mounted centered.
"the Crew revamped" 10/21/2008
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Sierra Crew
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Groomers,Jumps,Powder,Rails
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Great value

Experience:   I had the opportunity last season to demo the prototype for this snowboard and was simply amazed. Its ride compares to quite a few of higher end snowboards that i have ridden. My riding style is mostly park, but all pow on the days that offer it. The best time i had on the crew was on a day with about 6 inches of fresh. i got to rock it everywhere. It had enough edge hold to power through the groomers, floated easily in pow and was a blast in the park. When i demo boards in the park i tend to ride them a bit harder than my own personal boards and it held up like a champ. It presses easily on jibs, and still has enough power for bigger sized jumps. At the same time it will be an easy board for people to learn to carve on and get into their intermediate/advanced stages of riding. At the price point it is one of the most versatile boards around and im stoked that it is our store's model.
"THE Rocker of the year" 8/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Custom V-Rocker
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Halfpipe,High Speeds,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Buttery, Pop, Powder float
  • Cons:  really high speeds,

Experience:   The v-rocker is almost like a stiffer version of last years burton hero. The hero was an amazing board for riding park, but the custom rocker brings that same amount of fun to the rest of the mountain. Definitely a single board quiver!
