"2009 Deuce 162w" 10/26/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Deuce Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Groomed,Low Speeds
  • Pros:  Top Sheet is sick, Bottom Graphic is cool, Great learning board
  • Cons:  Chatters, Top sheet damages easy,

Experience:   I bought this board a year ago. Being my first Burton I had high expectations. The Top/Bottom grafix are pretty sick, but the board's performance is lackluster. I had taken some time from snowboarding (6yrs) and decided to get back in the game with this ride. I liked it for about 3 to 5 weekends on the hill. At high speeds it chatters, turning at speed was even worse. It liked to wash out in corners if you really got into the edge... This board would be great for a beginner, or someone that just cruises greens/blues... it'll do the steep stuff, but not excel at it. I'm giving the board a good rating, as not everyone is looking to bomb down diamonds all day. For you learners and beginner riders out there... this deck could be the one for you. Just keep in mind that you WILL replace it if your skill level advances.
"Good Boot, durabilty a dissapointment." 9/10/2012
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Ozone
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Light, Fast Lacing
  • Cons:  durability,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  12
  • Boot Size:  12

Experience:   I like these boots... not love them, but like them. From day one I felt as if the 4 support rating was a bit generous. I always thought they were a bit more flexible than that. With that said, the fact that the upper lacing zone could in a way adjust the stiffness of the boot, maybe Burton really jacked em tight before testing their advertised stiffness. The good.... the lacing on this boot is super simple to use, and fast to adjust. I did have to tighten mid day, but that's something that I've grown used to. Liner is comfortable, and walking traction is acceptable. The bad.... within the first season the material wore thru where the ankle hinge meets the lower boot. This is part of Burton's Articulating Cuff feature.... it did give the boot a nice flex point, but the material there needs to be beefed up in future models. Inner boot packed out during the first season, but was brought back to life with some heat and a lil love. Overall I gave this boot 3 stars. For the price that TS has this boot now, it's well worth it. But I would be a bit more hesitant if they were at full retail, simple for the fact that they aren't nearly as durable as i had expected them to be.
"Great Goggle" 8/13/2012
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Electric EG2 Goggles Gloss White Bronze Lens
  • Pros:  Great Style, Field of Vision,
  • Cons:  Doesnt fit all helmets, tends to fog on the top of goggle.,

Experience:   For the whole season last year (2012) I wore my pair of EG2's in LIPS colorway. I love the styling and the vision, but find that the upper goggle tends to fog when wearing my helmet. I don't have the fogging problem without a helmet so I'm sure it's due to the lid restricting airflow thru the goggle. I wear mine with a RED Mutiny II size XL. Sometimes the brim will push the goggle into my nose, but rarely. I would say this goggle fits my helmet nearly perfect, except for the fogging issue. (yes, I've tried different helmet vent configs... no avail) I would be wary if you have a smaller helmet in the same style... i really think that the fit would be tight with anything smaller than the XL.
"The Go Anywhere Board" 9/10/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail,Powder,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Stable, Poppy, All-Around
  • Cons:  Jack of all, Master of None.,

Experience:   I'm a big fan of this board... it's been my go to for 2 seasons now when conditions are variable. I feel as if this is the board to choose if you are looking for a do it all deck. Holds a good edge on all types of snow, yet is nimble and playful enough to throw it around when things get really bumped up late in the day (east coasters you know what I'm saying). I will say that in powder and/or trees I do prefer something a tad smaller and lighter, but that doesn't mean this board cant handle it. It's just a matter of preference and availability, if i had to travel and bring one deck... this would be the one. If you are looking for a dedicated park slayer or tree killer, you might want to keep looking elsewhere, but if you are looking for a great all-mountain ride... this is the one. Fast, nimble, great edges, catch free hybrid rocker, ICS channel.... killer stuff.
"Forgiving..." 11/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Blunt Wide Snowboard 153 Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Butters,Jibs,Jumps,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Flexible, V-Rocker, Forgiving
  • Cons:  Delicate Top Sheet,

Experience:   I just purchased this board as a jibber/toy... this was my first rocker board. I rode it for a full weekend, early season in 2010/2011. Snow was man made and granular. It held edges well, but not as tight as a camber board. I felt as if the rocker gave me an early season advantage.... at high speed the board seemed stable, but being early season the steep terrain was limited. I made a few early season errors that normally would have ended in an edge catching, and then face planting the snow.... but not with the rocker... it' just plowed a little, then straightened its self out. Great feel! I didn't get much time on the snow park features, but i did ride some presses and ollie it a bit. It was stable when pressing.... and ollied like a dream. Overall I'm happy with this board.... but being preseason, i probably could have strapped cardboard to my feet and still had a blast.
"Great Pad..." 11/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Large Scraper Snowboard Mat
  • Pros:  Transparent, Large size, Good Adhesion

Experience:   I have this pad on 2 of my boards.... The scraper is great to get the icy crud off the bottom of the boot before setting your foot in place. I've never had a boot slip problem when using this pad. It goes on easy, but be sure to clean the board with alcohol before application. It will make the bond more secure and it wont slide like most urethane stomp pads are known to do. It's also a good idea to let it cure on the board... either a hair dryer or leave it by the wood stove for the evening. That way it'll be a permanent fixture on your ride.

Do you find the rounded spikes grip as well as sharp ones?

Shift4200
I found this pad to be superior to most that I've used in the past. The scraper was great to get "poo" off your boot and the rounded spikes worked well.... Image may not show that they are a pyramid and although they are round, they still very pointy.



"Comfortable, low profile" 11/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Red Mutiny 2 Snowboard Helmet - Men's
  • Pros:  Great Styling, Low Profile, Comfortable
  • Cons:  Labeling on the vent sliders would be nice,

Experience:   I wore this helmet for the first time last weekend. It fit's really well and works perfectly with my Anon Figments. No gaps or fit problems with the helmet/goggle combo. The helmet was comfortable and snug, yet didn't feel constricting at all. I have the RedPhone upgrade in mine, and it worked perfectly. The only thing I wish it had was some sort of indication to the vent sliders. I couldn't tell if i had them open or closed. At the end of day one I removed the liner to inspect it more closely, and it appears when the sliders are slid out toward the ear pads... the vents are open.
"Warm... comfy" 10/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Emblem
  • Pros:  Warm, Comfy,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Snug... but not tight

Experience:   This should be pretty easy... socks... warm socks, but not overly bulky. They make my feet feel more secure in my boot, prob because they're a little more padded than a normal tube sock. Love em...
"Customs... simple... effective" 10/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Custom
  • Pros:  Toe Cap, Smooth Buckles,
  • Cons:  On the heavy side, Lack luster padding,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I bought these in black to go on a Burton Deuce, size Large. I have a size 12 boot and in the past I've had trouble finding bindings that were comfortable and fit well. These had no trouble strapping down my monster feet. Pretty straight forward binding... Awesome design on the buckles, kudos to Burton on that. The toe cap is awesome, but in the even of a fall they can slide up off your toes (if your toes hang at all). Not a big issue, but something to pay attention to before you pop back on to your feet. Being one of Burton's entry level bindings, they don't have as much padding under your feet as some of their other bindings. Again not a deal breaker but in the grand scheme of things, a lil more would have been nice. The toe and ankle straps are adjustable in many ways, so adapting these bad boys to your feet is cake. I'm running a pretty out of the box setup on mine, but i can see several different mounting hold for both straps. The high-back is adjustable... both in forward lean and rotation. My stance is 12/0 so i rotated the front high-back to match the heel edge. I didn't notice much of a comfort difference, but i did notice that my heel edge felt more solid after the adjustment. In closing I'm happy with these bindings, for the money and for the fit/finish.
"Great style, Great fit" 10/25/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Entourage Snowboard Jacket
  • Pros:  Style and Fit, Light padding, Burton Jacket features
  • Cons:  No inside pocket,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Great fit... loose where u want it to be but not overly baggy.

Experience:   I picked this up during the off season for a smoking price. Great fit and awesome style to this one. I got the Molen Gray Plaid... for molen gray it sure looks black to me. Jacket fits great and seems to be quite warm. Several pockets for storage including an audio pocket that's accessible without unzipping the jacket... My only complaint is no pocket on the inside of the jacket... I'm a bit of a mountain pack-rat, I def like to have that extra storage. A negative, but nothing that made me put it back on the rack. Looking forward to breaking it in with some early season riding.
"Great sound... easy install." 10/25/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Red Redphones Headphones - Men's
  • Pros:  Ease of use, Volume/mute on cord, Good sound
  • Cons:  Max Volume,

Experience:   Good headphones for your RED helmet. Installation was a snap... I installed mine in 5-7 minutes while riding shotgun on the way home from a weekend up in VT. The directions could have been better.... but if you install the headphones before plugging them in and running wires... it's smooth sailing. My only complaint is max volume... seems like they could be a little louder... but then again... I think I'm going deaf, so what do i know?

"Perfect size...." 10/25/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Wheelie Flight Deck
  • Pros:  Size, Wheels, Quality
  • Cons:  Price ,

Experience:   The title says it all. For me this is the perfect size bag... good for an overnight at the Corporate offices or a weekend at the hill. 2 packing zones to separate his/hers, Clean/dirty... whatever. Bag also comes with a removable laptop bag... handy. Only complaint is it seems to be a tight fit where you store the laptop bag. I haven't tried the fit with a laptop in the bag, but I'm sure it'll be snug. It's a very sturdy bag, with a 2 position drag handle. The replaceable skate wheels roll like butter. I drag my luggage to and from Penn Station to 5th and 45th so good wheels are important to me. I listed price as a Con... but to my delight TruSnow lowered the price of this bag by 65$. I was notified and given a gift card for the difference. All in all this was a great deal for a great bag. I'm looking forward to many trips with this thing stuffed to the gills.
"Great LITTLE bag...." 10/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Wheelie Overnight
  • Pros:  Construction, Materials, WHEELS!
  • Cons:  Size,

Experience:   I received this bag last night for a birthday present. I'll be returning it, but not due to any lack of features or quality. I'm 6'3 and weigh about 225.. my jeans are a size 36-38 and when folded are pretty large. After trying a trial run pack job in this bag, i found it to be too small for clothes that are my size. I had hoped to pack for an overnight trip to the ski house in it, but with clothing and toiletries it's just too small for me... Now that you know why I'm returning it, lets talk about the bag itself. The outside appearance is typical Burton, logo'd up in all the right places. The interchangeable wheels are an important feature to me, as in the off-season i spend a lot of time in Manhattan, and those sidewalks EAT the wheels on luggage. Being able to swap them out if they get chewed is key. The expendable handles is comfortable to hold, and easy to position up or down.... Combine that with the smooth skate wheels and I'm sure this thing would be a pleasure to dodge downtown panhandlers with. The bag has a laptop compartment, that's accessible from the side of the bag... I did fit my Dell D620 in there without much problem, but I didn't remember to try it again when packed. I'm sure a tight pack job of clothes might hinder the ease of laptop access, as the sleeve for the laptop sits at the bottom of the main packing compartment. Aside from the laptop and main chamber of the bag it also has 2 small side pouches that almost look like beverage holders... a great spot to hide your smokes or whatever else you'd want to have easy access to. On the front of the bag, the top 1/4-1/3 is another separate pocket, I'll assume this is designed to be for bathroom type stuff as it seems sealed to prevent leakage onto clothes. Overall I think this bag is great, it offers great features and awesome styling (as far as luggage goes).
