Description

Park, pow, or piste—regular or switch—the Joystick destroys it all while encouraging freestyle progression like never before.

The Joystick Snowboard offers the loose, skatey feel of Burton’s V-Rocker while still delivering enough response, pop, and edge grip to turn the entire mountain into your own terrain park. Burton defied the laws of nature by designing a soft, forgiving snowboard that still charges hardpack like a bat out of hell and floats in powder like there’s a hot-air balloon strapped to your back.
  • V-Rocker raises the nose and tail off the snow for a catch-free ride and insane float in powder
  • Pressure Distribution Edges extend an extra .5mm in binding-mount areas for enhanced grip on firm snow
  • Freestyle Scoop turns up edges at tip and tail for a forgiving, stompable feel
  • Triax Response Fiberglass with Carbon I-Beam for reliable edge hold and more pop than a flaming fireworks stand
  • Infinite Ride tech breaks-in board at the factory, so the flex and ride are the same on day 1 and day 301
  • The Channel mounting system provides unrivaled cushioning, board feel, and endless stance options (compatible with EST or 3D Burton bindings)
  • Size down 1-2 cm from normal board length

I'm looking for the ideal size joystick, parameters are as follows Height (U.S.): 185cm (6'1 ") Weight in pounds: 80kg (176), Ability: Intermediate, boot size 11,5. Currently my application is a 159w, but it may be this little for me? All mountain style treated Course and the powder, park rarely. More and more attract freeriders! me should replace a 163w size? Deep snow doing the bindings back to 1-2 cm? V-rockers can not be told, let centered. Or back to 1-2 cm? Is it good for deep snow of the board think of? What is your opinion?

By the description of your size and weight, as well as taking in to consideration your terrain preference, I would recommend riding the 161. The board is a V-rocker board and a twin-like shape. You don't need to set back your stance at all, but feel free too. It is all about how you like to ride. The Joystick is a mid-wide board, but if you can find the wide version then go for it. You have a 11.5 boot, the wide board would be great. Have fun, this board kills it.

Responded on

Not at all. If you just want to jib it up and hit smaller jumps, It will be perfect. You could size up just a tad and still be ok if you think you are going to grow.

150lbs 10.5boot not sure if i should get 156w or 157

Responded on

I would get the 156w. You won't get any toe drag on the wide board vs the regular where you may get some. You'd really be fine on either though. I just suggest the wide.

Responded on

Yeah the 56W would be good.

Responded on

def NOT the 156 wide.. U don't need a wide board.. wides R for ppl with 11.5 boots or larger. I have tried wides (I wear a size 11) and it's not as responsive as a red width board. It's better to not get a wide w/ your boot size.

Responded on

If you haven't gotten a board by now, this board would be fine to learn on. With the scoop nose, and v-rocker its almost like cheating.. This or the burton blunt or clash would be great.

I'm 6ft 2, 195lbs, size 12 boots. Should I get the 159W or 163W? I do freeride and some park.

Responded on

You could easily ride either one just fine. For your hight I would pick the 163 though. You are big enough to handle it, so why not have the extra float and edge? 163 is a nice length.

Responded on

Either board would be a great size for you it just depends on what your riding focus is. If you plan on freeriding more go with the 163, but, if park is more your jam then get the 159.

Responded on

No, these are only compatible with EST or 3D Burton bindings.

Responded on

They work with Forum disk bindings as well!

Responded on

any bindings will work aslong as the binding company makes a channel disk, I haven't done a lot of research but Flow is the only other company I personally have seen sell a channel disk for their bindings, even the burton retro channel disk seems more heavy duty than the 3D disk...

hay im 5' 8" and 110 i am looking for a new board i ride a 149 burton punch and its delaminating. I ride alot of pow and im staring to spin of kickers but the burton punch isnt helping im willing to pay 400 and down but the lower the beter. any sugestions and should i move up to a 151-154?

Responded on

I would say 151 if you ride a lot of park. You're pretty light so I don't think you want to be on a 154, you may find it a bit stiff. The 151 will be good in park and because the tip and tail are turned up it will do fine in pow too. I would also recommend a burton hero if you want reverse camber. It is softer and would be slightly better for park riding. For the hero you could stay at the 149 or bump up the a 152.I weigh 90lbs more than you and ride a burton hero 158 (just a litter softer than the joystick and a slightly different shape) and it floats like crazy in pow and is unreal in the park. Whichever board you buy I would recommend 149-152 (mainly because of your weight).

Hey,

I'm 6' 2"/225 lb, and while I was looking at the Ride Machete 164W, I heard good things about the Joystick. I ride east coast grooms/all mountain and never in the park. Is this board a good fit?

I have 2 pairs of boots - '09 Ions 11.5 and '08 Lashed 12.

Thanks,
Stephen

Responded on

I'm 6'2/ 200lb. Love the board! I ride the 159 and can't say enough good things about it. vrocker is so skatey and all mountain friendly yet still will pull you over the board if your a bit backseat on the landing. kills at buttering ( all rockers seem to though) I liked that although it has the rocker its not super loose, there is still a good amount of snap! Size 11.5 to 12 boots... I have 12's and ride the wide.

I am a new snowboarder, and the Burton board guide told me that the Joystick is the one for me. I am 6' and about 190lbs. I'm going to be all over the mountain and in the park...length suggestion? and I'm a size 11...do I need the wide version?

Responded on

haha, awesome choice.

Your my dimensions almost to a "T" -- I'm 6'0" 195 lbs.

Go with the 157 or 159 Wide...

The 157 is a mid-wide waist so you will be fine on foot size. And the wide 159 is not super-wide (basically either one will work awesome)

I'd look at it this way: If you plan on riding a lot of bigger mountain/ powder style stuff go larger... More Park, Pipe, Jibbing go with the smaller.

Keep in mind you can size down a bit riding a rocker.

AND ON TOP OF THAT, THIS BOARD IS AMAZING!!!

Responded on

I'm 6' and 170 and I ride a 154. I also stay in the park all day too. This boards mad flexy and fun to ride, plus I went with the 154 so I can whip it around faster.

Responded on

154 if you ride a lot of park... I choose the 154 and am 6" 185lbs.

Only go with a 157 if you are an all-mountain rider, as you can ride rocker a couple CM's shorter than you camber board.

Posted on

I'm 6ft 3 size 11 foot(have low profile boots so more like size 10) and 200lb, really undecided on which size joystick, 161 or 159w. Riding style is a bit of everything!! What is your opinion? Thanks jim

Responded on

I would drop in on the 159 Wide... you will not need the added waist width, but honestly speaking. Its not a huge, huge difference!

Rocker boards you can ride a lil' shorter if you want. (1-2 CM) Either board is going to have about the same surface area (thus float in POW) so you might as well rock the shorter size.

You will be very, very, very happy no matter what size you choose!

Drop in on it! (but make sure you have EST bindings as that optimizes the boards flex and feel)

your stoked!

What size should i buy 150 or 154? im 5'8" 135lbs im not sure which size will suite me best.

Responded on

150 might be too short if you're still growing. It'll be easier to control either way, but you can get a few more seasons out of the 154 probably.

Responded on

Yea thats the thing. I don't think im growing height wise anymore im 23 but as far as weight i might put on a few pounds. So this is where im torn between the 2 sizes. I ride a 152 currently.

Responded on

I would go for the 154, your height should balance out the board. You weight will effect the control a bit, but you should be able to tackle that if you have good handling on the slopes.

Responded on

yeah, 154 is probably the best bet. However, you can ride rocker 2+ CM shorter than your normal board.

If you ride mostly park go 150... If you ride all over the place go 154.

Either way, your gonna shit, as this board is unreal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Responded on

Yea i ride everywhere pretty much, some days its the mountain others im in the park. but i think i can manage controlling the 154 easily. With that being said i think im gana go with the 154. Thanks for everyones opinions. very helpful

Super Fun Ride!

I got the chance to demo the 161 with cartels last weekend and was blown away. As an old school rider (6'3" 210lbs) I was skeptical of the whole rocker thing but the loose skate feel is really fun and controllable. Can't wait to get one!

Does picking a board length depend solely...

Posted on

Does picking a board length depend solely (or primarily) on your height or does your weight factor in as well? I'm 5'6", 170 lbs. Should I go with a 154 or 150?

How much different is this board from the Custom V-Rocker? The specs seemed to match up pretty closely on the Burton website.

Mahalo!

Best Answer Responded on

The length of your board should have more to do with your weight than height. The heavier you are the stiffer board you need. But then again, the longer you are the higher your weight center will be and the longer board you need to keep it stable.

I'm 5'11" 168lbs and ride a 155 for park, 157 for all-mountain and would probably have a 159 for powder - but since I'm not made of money I use the 157.

According to the description you can size this board down 2 cm so 157 should be a pretty safe bet considering it's a all-mountain/powder board rather than all-mountain/freestyle.

Responded on

You need to look at weight, riding style and ability when trying to detirmine a snowboard size.

With your weight you should probably go for the 157 if you plan on using it as an all mountain board

Responded on

I would say a 154 if you want to play in the park, on rails, and in the pipe... or a 157 if you want to use it in POW too... With rocker you can ride it a bit smaller and still get float in a foot or two of powder.

The guys are right, your weight points you to a bigger size so it does depend on what you want to do on the board... and where you plan on riding it.


Again, I'm 6'0" 195 lbs and rock a 157 for park/Jibbing ... a 159 Wide for Powder.

Either way, you will be stoked as this thing RULES!!!

MAYBE THE BEST BOARD IN THE WORLD!

The Joystick is my board of choice! I'm 6 foot and 195 lbs. (considering myself an advanced rider who likes tricks and powder) I ride the 157 as a park, rail, pipe, groomer stick... And then jump up to a 159 wide when its over knee high powder.

Just to note, this won the Transworld snowboarding good wood award!

Here is what the non-Burton affiliated testers had to say:

“Very fun, stiffer rocker board.”
“This board is an amazing combination of flex and pop. It holds a perfect edge and struck me as an awesome park board as well.”
“Fun board to take anywhere on the mountain.”
“Super good all around board. Has reverse camber which will make it awesome in pow. Still has pop to get those big jumps stomped out. And it’s a bit pressy on rails.”
“This would be a very fun pow board. The rocker makes it feel a little soft for jumps but it still performs. Fun for butters too.”
“No confusing internet searches needed, the all-mountain rider has found its match. Fun to ride, pop for days and awesome to turn. It ain’t this thing’s first swing around the block!”

Hi! I see the same size, would be interested in deep snow how to configure the bindings? Back 1-2 cm, or leave in the center?
