"Feel the Burn" 3/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Palmer Burn Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Amazing edges, Mild stiffness, Pop!
  • Cons:  Medium butters, Haven't tried pipe,

Experience:   I'd have to agree with Sierra's review of this board. All around freestyle board if by all around freestyle you mean enjoying the park as well as making the mountain your park. Medium/mild stiffness but still has excellent pop. Switch riding never felt so natural. Amazing control at high and slow speeds. Jib'ing machine. Light weight. Awesome edges. Extremely forgiving on under/over rotations and sketchy landings. Groomed/ungroomed with ease. Ice killer. Noticed ollie's are a bit higher. After two days of riding I'm not sure if its just over excitement but I feel like anything is possible with this board. Not that it matters, but the 2010 logo graphic is sick. I'm 6' 2 190 lbs and this is probably the most natural board I've ever ridden (though I haven't ridden a Custom X). Great all mountain and all around freestyle (slope style) board. Only thing I haven't tried is the pipe.

"Great! Not your normal binding" 3/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow NXT AT
  • Pros:  Quick and Easy to get into/out of, Great support/control, Light weight
  • Cons:  foreseeable issue with 13+ boots, sewn logo coming unthreaded,
  • Flex:  stiff

Experience:   Background * Currently all mountain freestyle, tree runs, park * Formerly racing and free ride Former Setup * Vans Switch - 6 years – quick to get into/out of. No freestyle support * Burton Cartels - 2 years – gave out in support after a year of riding NXT AT • Straight forward to setup • Read the instructions they’re not your normal strap ins!! • Lever to raise and lower high back. Screws for lean level • Single wide strap with ratchet adjustments Being brand new NXT AT the lever is a bit tough to get down but once you get the gist of it you should be able to get out of your bindings as fast as strap-ins. The first few runs I had issues getting the high back up (serious frustration at first), but by the third and fourth run I was golden. Tightness level on the single strap should be adjusted based on riding style. The flow bindings have rock solid support and an extra stiffness that's provides a forgiveness factor on sketchy landings and botched rotations. Carving is more fluid and I don't question myself jibbing. The only terrain I haven't been able to test out in is deep powder. If you're looking to buy new bindings, slap them on your board, and ride as you've always done things these aren't for you. However, if you're looking to fine tune your riding experience and improve your skills these are definitely the bindings for you. In my opinion the Flow offer superior support as compared to strap-ins and the ability to get in and out quickly as needed. The first day I had these I had to rent boots. I got a size 13 which seemed to be a bit big until I made the proper adjustments but still felt a bit too clunky. The second day I got 12 which were a perfect fit and didn't have an issue fitting into the XLs. As always make sure your boots fit properly or you will be bitching about everything.
