"Envious Grip & Durability"
- Name: 2012 Burton Medium Spike Mat
- Pros: Spikes of Doom!, Center Ridge Directs Boot Placement, Low Profile
- Cons: Slick Hard Plastic, <--- Which is also a Pro,
This Burton Stomp Pad is the perfect size for virtually any snowboard boot as it features a high ridge in the middle of the pad. This ridge helps proper boot positioning because the ridge fits perfectly between the bottom sole of the boot and the heel. The spikes are near perfect! They stick up high enough to grab on to the grip of your snowboard boot (whether there is snow on the pad or not), but not so high as to weak. Another reviewer commented that this stomp pad is very slippery and not really for beginners. I disagree, this pad is a little slippery, IF you cannot make contact with any of the spikes or center ridge. And honestly, if you miss ANY stomp pad, then it really isn’t going to do you much good, is it? I recommend this pad for ALL riders of ALL levels, as it is the best pad I have ever seen or used. I have friends that envy mine, but it seems whenever they go to the local shops, they are all out of them. That should tell you that EVERYONE wants this stomp pad, and for good reason… because it RULES and looks pretty cool too.
