"Good Bindings.. especially if on sale" 3/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Cartel
  • Pros:  capstrap holds foot securely to the heelcup, 3D straps are very comfortable.. no pinching, Good dampening
  • Cons:  hard to get them to fit the way I wanted, minor detail..see below, lost some board feel
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I rode these bindings for a good part of this season (09-10) and liked them quite a bit. Right out of the box they were a little stiff for my liking, but luckily after a few days of riding they got a nice broken-in feeling. The padding on the highback is soft and grippy and never felt like it was poking me through my boot. The grippy foam sure helped keep my boots planted and allowed me to press boxes/rails just as good as a binding with a winged back. The new full footbed is much much better than the older models lacking a true full footbed. I did have a few little problems though. The baseplates seemed to be a little rigid and I think that I lost some feel of the board directly below. Next, the highbacks and ankle strap seemed to be a pain to perfectly dial in to my boot/preferences.. this could just be me though, but with a average size foot (9-10) I didn't expect this. The only other problem was the edges of the little metal panels where the ankle straps bolt through the frame peeled up within two nights of riding.. poor adhesive I assume. Overall these are great bindings, just a little pricey for what you get in my opinion.. keep your eyes out for them on sale though.

This is a very helpful review... thanks!

Just ordered a pair of the 09's in magenta madness. Plan to pair them with the '10 Hero. Completely stoked to try them out this season. Did you try the est's? Interested to find out if all the hype is true...



"Good Buy" 3/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Helly Hansen Ice Crew Themal Top
  • Pros:  Very comfortable, Wicks away moisture very well ,
  • Cons:  Price,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   I bought this on sale and am very glad I did. It fits perfect, and isnt skin tight, which I like. It is very comfortable, and is very light, even for a base layer. I cant comment on durability since I've only worn it twice, but ill be anxious to see how it holds up next season. The only fault I can find is the price, especially at original retail, it is simply too expensive for just a base layer, but I assume the brand name contributes to that.
"Great Backcountry or Big-Mountain Pack" 3/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Guide
  • Pros:  tons of space, secure board carrying , top or back entry
  • Cons:  More than a small mountain rider needs ,

Experience:   This pack is my choice for backcountry or Big-Mountain Riding. Has plenty of space, I think its around 3000 cubic inches, which translates to space for all the necessities for long hikes and rides. The vertical board carrying makes long treks that much easier, as once you strap it on, it literally becomes part of the pack. This leads to the next thing I really like about this pack, the straps and how comfortably this pack sits on your back, which makes it feel very lightweight. The straps are super supportive and stay put. Next, the ability to enter this pack from the top or back is very convenient, no more digging through your carefully packed gear to get something on the bottom. Also the dedicated avalanche tool compartment gives easy access to your ice pick, probe, and shovel in an emergency Lastly the insulated water bladder compartment means the chances of icing up are slim. I would highly recommend this pack to anyone looking to adventure off the beaten path.

"Everything CAPiTA says it is, and more!" 3/4/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Capita Saturnia Womens
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Brand Backing..CAPiTA's 2 year warranty, Price, Great Flex
  • Cons:  Too soft for aggressive Freeride,

Experience:   I am writing this review based on my girlfriend's (beginner-intermediate level) experience with this board over the 09-10 season. When she decided that she wanted to dabble into park riding a bit, it was decided that a new board with more flex would be in order. When park-riding was mentioned the first thing that came to my mind was the Stairmaster, one of my favorites. The Saturnia is basically a the Stairmaster's little sister, catered to women riders, and dare I say a little more forgiving than the men's models. First off, the boards price cant be beat for what you get. Even at full retail you get a ton of bang for your buck. The Saturnia features all of the simple but proven features that have made the CAPiTA Stairmasters a favorite among park riders's, like the super flexy core that makes pressing boxes or rails seem like second nature, even to beginning park riders. The entire construction of this board is super lightweight, making it even more appealing to girls that don't want a board that feels like a tank, especially when just learning to ollie and jump. The time-proven traditional camber is very forgiving and easy to ride for any skill level. This board does have some minor flaws though, especially if your more of a freerider, looking to carve the groomers all day. The features such as the jib-friendly flex that make it great it the park are this boards pit-fall elsewhere on the mountain. I'm not saying it cant be ridden on groomers, shallow powder, etc, but it will not be at home as much as it is in the park. There are plenty of other boards that will greatly out perform the Saturnia if your looking to spend most of your time outside of the park including the women's Midnight offered also by CAPiTA. But overall, if you are looking to add a high-value, light, great performing jib and park board to your quiver, or just started riding and see yourself moving towards freestyle/park riding, then this board is a solid choice.
"Perfect second layer" 3/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 North Face Tka 100 Glacier 1/4 Zip
  • Pros:  Very Warm, Fits Great, Cant get much more comfortable
  • Cons:  none that I can think of ,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   I have been wearing North Face fleece for a long time now and for a good reason. I wear this over a base layer to add a little warmth on those cold days, as I like wearing an uninsulated shell. This makes layering up so easy. The fleece is super plush and comfortable. They hold up well season after season and dont cost too much to start with. Also they pack really well in a backpack so if you get a little too warm its easy to just stuff in your pack without weighing you down.
"What a deal!" 3/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Fox River Mills Adventure Mid Weight
  • Pros:  Price, Fit is perfect, Warm, but light
  • Cons:  none yet,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   I bought these socks about 2 weeks ago and had worn them for 6 riding days. First of all the fit is great, they stay put and dont slip a bit. They are super warm for how light they are. Also the durability is great so far, as they have been through the washer after every use and still look new. For under 5 bucks youd be foolish not to pick up a pair just to throw in the gear bag as extras.
"Darn Close to a true Quiver Killer..Review for the FK model " 3/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Capita Indoor Survival
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Handles Nearly ANY part of the mountain, Flat Kick and stiffer flex Handles pow great, Quality of Construction is great
  • Cons:  graphics may be a turn off to the more reserved ,

Experience:   This review is for the FLAT KICK model, although this board is also offer in traditional camber as well. This board is now one of my personal favorites. I was very skeptical about the new flat kick tech, especially after riding a few other brands' reverse camber offerings, but CAPiTA really delivered on this one. The all-mountain ability of this board is hard to match. With the stiffer flex through the middle, carving is super powerful and responsive, even with the reverse camber, with the added benefit of rarely catching an edge. The tips, however, have a good amount of flex for aggressive park riding and makes jibs and butters surprisingly easy for a overall stiffer board. I even rode this board in fresh pow (about 2ft) and was shocked at how great it handled it. The reverse camber floats great and the true-twin shape allows you float just as good switch or regular. The construction of this board is exceptional all the way from the green core to the fast sintered base. And the graphics- wow- CAPiTA really went crazy with this one, while I'm personally a fan, I'm sure it may be a little over the top for more reserved riders. Overall if I had to pick one board to do it all (groomers, pow, park, jump, pipe) , this would be my pick. No wonder it a favorite of many of CAPiTA teams riders.
"Great as Primary or Back-ups!" 3/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Von Zipper Bushwick
  • Pros:  Price, comfort, Never have fogged on me
  • Cons:  alternate lenses are hard to find, sizing is a little inaccurate,

Experience:   These are a great pair of goggle for someone just starting out, or to toss in the gear bag for spares. You can't really go wrong with the VonZipper brand as far as value goes. While they lack some features of higher end models, they are a solid goggle. The foam is really plush but also vents very well, accompanied by the forward lens vents. I have never had this goggle fog up on me. Another plus is the wide view these goggles give you, no more tunnel vision. The sizing is a little off though, I have a smaller face and they fit perfect, while they claim it is suited for larger faces. The only other gripe is that if you are going to be using these as your primary goggle, other shades of lenses can be difficult to find. Overall, I would definitely recommend picking up a pair, especially for the price they are at now ($30), but even at regular price they're a bargain.

"Two words can sum these up, CONVENIENCE and Quality!" 3/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow Prima-SE Womens
  • Pros:  Fast strap-in, Fit and Finish is Excellent, COLOR!
  • Cons:  Pricey, Some may find it hard to adapt to,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I am writing this review based on my girlfriend's ( beginner-intermediate level) experience with them over the 09-10 season. First off, the COLORS are definitely eye catching on the white/pink model.. certainly a plus for any girl looking to make a statement! Next, anyone tired of wasting time fumbling around with straps and buckles can certainly appreciate convenience of the Flow system. Flip down, step in, flip up, and adjust if necessary... Cant get much simpler than that. No longer am I waiting 5 minutes for her to strap in, which equals more time on the slopes for both of us. The quality of this binding is certainly on par with any other mid to high end traditional binding. One thing that is really nice about this model is the rockered aluminum baseplate, which gives you a ton of feel for the board. While this may not mean much to beginner riders, it certainly translates to more fluid and natural feeling carves, jumps, landings, and jibs. The adjustability and comfort of the footbed is excellent. The ability to adjust the heel and toe pads independently allows this binding to cater to just about any boot sole shape on the market. There are a few little issues worthy of mention to prospective buyers however. First, the list price of $299 puts this binding out of the reach of many beginning riders, or those that don't ride a ton. But you get what you pay for: both the quality and convenience of the Flow system. Look for these ON SALE! Lastly those that are familiar with, or partial to traditional bindings may have a little trouble getting used to the new wave, but once accustomed to them, should be able to appreciate the convenience. Less time wasted at the loading/unloading areas equals more time for the slopes!
"My New Favorite Park Board" 3/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Capita Sierrascope FK
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Pretty Versatile for a park-specific board, Flat Kick simply destroys rails and boxes, Sierra Exclusive
  • Cons:  Little too soft for serious freeriding,

Experience:   Just got this board last week and am already super impressed. I was looking for something a little softer than my Indoor Survival for those park only days, but also wanted to stick with CAPiTA's Flat Kick. The Horrorscope was my original choice but when I saw this (a CAPiTA/Sierra colab with all the features I wanted) on sale I couldnt pass it up. The first day on it, I found out why this board has so much hype surrounding it. First off the construction is superb, from the 'green' core, to the carbon X, and finally the sintered base. Now to the important stuff.. This board is SahWEEEET in the park. The FK kills any rail, box, or anything else you throw at it. The soft flex coupled with the FK makes presses and butters effortless. I also hit quite a few kickers and was really pumped to see how much pop it had for a rockered jib board. I even rode a few groomers with and and had no problem holding an edge. This is a jib board though so I didn't expect too much outside the park, but it certainly held its own. This board would be a solid solid choice for someone that wants to lap the park all day, but for serious freeriding I prefer a stiffer board like the Indoor Survival or the MLP. Also at the price they are now, you'd be dumb not to pick one up.

Experience:   Finally a way to give your board some love and look good doing it! Plenty of pockets to hold your screwdriver, scraper, file guide, gummi stone, ETC. No longer do I give my clothes a good wax job too. Pick one up
