Pros: stable at high speeds, busts through all the chop, super fast base
The crew is smokin fast! I've been riding the 160w with my Burton Co2 bindings this year and have been loving it more and more everyday. I'm 6', 210 lbs, and have 11.5 Burton Ions. My stance is 24'', centered, and at 15/-15. Sierra set this board up with the 4x pattern so you aren't limited to only Burton bindings. After riding it a few times its settled into a very nice mid-flexing board. It cuts through the chop like a champ, floats through the pow, and powers down groomers like a rocket! It's got great pop and holds edge all over. A great board to take up to the mountain for any condition. Our one and only English Butler did a great job on the graphics! Cheers Phil! Like the title says, you won't find a better stick for the price!
Pros: Shredding with the super fun SS crew/community, Spring in Tahoe, P.A.R.T.Y.
Cons: No Bru or Phatman,
Well...the time is near for yet another epic gathering brought to you by Mike, Jenn, and the rest of the amazing folks at SS.com Can't wait to get down there as this will surely be a palooza for the ages. There will be people of all skill levels ripping it up so don't be nervous if you are just starting out! Come take part in the fun. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
Pros: roach clip!, durable, folds flat/stowes in pockets well
I've snagged a few of these suckers and as far as cuzzi's go they ROCK. Does 2 things extremely well, keeps your beverage of choice chill and the roach clip keeps you from burning yourself. What else can you really ask for out of a cuzzi!? Plus its rasta colors! Jahhhh mon!
Name: 2009 Travis Rice and Quiksilver Thats it Thats All
Pros: This flick is straight $$$ shot in HD so can you say blu-ray!? awesome soundtrack for sure. lil bit of a documentary-ish style with awesome locations and the views are amazing. the riding of course is ridiculous.
Cons: that the movie ends eventually...also when watched during the summer it makes the lack of snow almost unbearable
if you haven't seen it you haven't lived...buy this right MEOW cuz its a damn goood moooovie!
The Coda is a midflexing directional twin all mtn freestyle machine! Bamboo feels real snappy under your feet and the base is fast. Arbor has been around for awhile and continue to crank out solid gear year after year with some of the best looking boards on the market.. love that wooden topsheet. Griptech under foot combined with the on mtn rocker system holds when it needs to and is playful when you want it to be. Light, fast, and strong! This board won't disappoint.
Pros: Extremely Light, Pop for days, FK float in the deep stuff
Cons: Camber could be extended with less early rise,
This board is fast and fun to rip. Camber through the feet with early rise and FK in the tip and tail create a board that is stable on hardpack while floating like a champ in the pow. For being one of the stiffer boards in Capita's line, the FK and early rise make the tip and tail feel a bit softer to me. I went with the 159 bc I am a fan of that length however, at my weight I should have been on a size up.. which also makes the board feel a bit softer than the proper size would. All in all this board is a blast to ride, I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a hard charging all mountain freestyle board that will destroy everything.
Pros: Super Comfortable, Asymetrical ankle strap and cored toe strap,
Cons: Increased area of stage 3 baseplate,
T. Rice agrees that these stage 3 baseplates are the shit. Plenty of cushion teamed up with new and improved toe and ankle straps leave you looking down to make sure you are still strapped into something. Excellent binding for ripping every aspect of the mtn, however probably not best suited for park. Beware these basetrays are a bit bigger than the force basetray. I picked up a 159 Capita BSOD for these (L/XL) to go on but even at 15/-15 with a 24 stance width, there was overhang on both toe and heel side of the board(plastic base of the binding not just my boot). If you loved the classic Force binding, this is a welcomed improvement in terms of comfort, straps, less sticky ratchets, and weight. Looking forward to see what Union has in store for us in the upcoming seasons!
Pros: Use your regular non-est Burton bindings, Save your money for apre and lift tickets!, Int'l Members don't have to deal with Burton CS!
Cons: Notta darn thing!,
Alrite team, here's the deal. No need to buy EST bindings when you can order these bad boys up and use your regular, non-est burton bindings that you've been using all along. Fight back against the man, save some cheese, and toss these on your ICS boards for optimum shreddage. International members no longer need to deal with angry Burton customer service in their respective countries, but can instead order these direct from Sierra! Really what more could you ask for?!
I rode the NXT AT's on the Infinite Reverse down at Steamboat CO.
The guys from Flow were awesome to ride/chill with and answered alot of my questions for sure. Flow has come along way since back in the day and people should definitely be checking out their product. After getting out on the hill I was trying to adjust the uni-strap at the top and bottom of every run to get it so it was tight enough yet wasn't pinching my foot. You must also adjust the cable on the highback as well. Once properly adjusted the ride was much better. I did notice that I had to flex my ankles a bit more than normal when going into my heelside carves/turns due to the lack of having a designated toe strap. Other than that they were a nice ride and seemed pretty solid durability wise.
Pros: adjustable ventilation, goggle compatibility, hfs (helmet fit system)
Cons: original audio setup not as loud as i would like,
I love this helmet. I have a bigger head so most buckets make me look like a bobble head but this seems to have a bit lower profile than others that I tried on. I altered the audio setup as it wasn't very loud the way it came. I used the wire from my giro tuneups kit instead of the one provided and it boosted the volume a ton. The HFS(helmet fit system) allows adjustability to get the perfect fit. Works perfectly with Smith goggles and also use with my oakley wisdoms and electrics without the annoying gaper gap! Sick helmet overall
Description: WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, Cold and Blustery Day, Snow and Rain Mixed, Sleet, Storming and White Out, LEG: Relaxed, WAIST: Feels true to size, INSEAM: Feels true to length,
Picked these up at 70% off..what a smokin deal for gore-tex! I like my stuff to fit baggy so i picked up the XL...i'm 6 ft and right around 200 lbs...waist around 33-34 and 32 inseam..these are plenty baggy. I would assume most people might want to size down one if they don't like a little extra steez in their slide! For cold days you might want to layer up.
picked these up for 50% off right here on sierra..THANK YOU GUYS! the lady loves em..a ridiculous step up from the stilettos she had. never complains about her feet hurting more and u can definitely see an improvement in her riding. she rode them in a foot of fresh the first time and they looked super responsive..plus the teal and zebra stripe oozes sexy
Pros: Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Comfortable, Well known brand, Easy installation
Fit: fits fine
threw the pinks on my purple sk8 nanner and it looks oh so fresh...took a few runs to get used to the highback since it is a bit taller but after that it was smooth sailing. extremely comfortable..fit my ions like a glove
