Best ride. Love this board and would never go outside burton. Had the special 157 prior. I am an advanced rider 6'1" 160lbs and ride the 160cm. Great for kickers AMAZING for carving. I don't destroy this board on rails though..I use my old specail for a day with rails. Custom x is to perfect to destroy

There is pretty much nothing that will beat the edge to edge quickness of the CX. The response is so lively and instantaneous you'll just laugh as you mach carve your way down. Great pop on both ends. The deck has a great lively flex but it's definitely on the stiffer end of things, so it would be best to stay away if you're in the beginning stages. This deck rarely changes much year-to-year, so pick this one up at a discount and shred it next year.

why not make a 173 or 174 for us tall people?
and for that matter, lets bring back Switch Bindings (they were the best ever in my opinion). I'm feeling like i'm being phased out, but i've been here for decades.

technology is so good these days that you can get all the performance gains you used to get in a longer board out of a shorter stick.
i.e.: Tail Taper, sidecut, waist width, rocker/camber, etc.
This board is meant for a high-end demanding rider. Throwing switch bindings on it would just cause loss of the performance gains you get by stepping up to this.
Try EST with the Channel. You may need to take an extra 10 seconds at the top of the hill to get in but the performance and feel gains will be well worth the wait!

I used the Burton Vapor for a week, then got bored of it so I decided to try the Custom X. This board does it all, powder, staying alive on ice, park, pipe, jumps, and probably jibs and rails too (I haven't tried because I don't want to mess up my new favorite board!). The Custom X is pretty stiff though so don't expect to use it to spread butter, but it has amazing pop. The addition of the ICS system is great, carry a small screw driver when using this board and you'll never want to leave the mountain.

this is all the hardware you will ever need for an ICS board, and it comes with the board, not the bindings.
A. bolts are slid into the channel
B. these plugs are used to keep the bolts from falling out of the channel if by some mis-hap
C. (optional) retro disks for using non-est BURTON bindings
D. 4 screws bolt everything down tight

Already had an 'X' which was a little old and abused so went for this years new Custom X. Moved down from a 164 to a 160 as I've lost some 'timber'! Its a lively board at this length for the type of all mountain and off piste riding I do ... ICS gives so many stance options for different riders and to suit the conditions ... I had a massively wide stance for the first couple of days which produced some awesome bails in fresh powder, but its pretty easy to get the adjustment right. Excellent ride which suits my aggressive full speed style. GET SOME!!!

This board is by far my nicest board. It is one of the greatest board I've ever ridden down hill. It's a directional twin, so it's ok if your like to throw a 1 or 5 and it's light weight makes spins easy. The one thing I won't do on this board is a rail. The edges are just to sharp and the entire board way to stiff. Still, great board in all other conditions, unless of course you're looking to hit the park.

If you're looking for the best all mountain board, look no further. I picked up the 168, and a Pair of C02 Est's. I've never felt more comfortable on a mountain. I can't believe how this board reacts to your movement. I rode Mammoth this past weekend, they got 16 inches of fresh pow. This board will kill everything you put it on. I wouldn't hesitate buying this setup again. It is pricey, but honestly worth every cent. FIND A SALE! You wont be sorry.
