- Flying V hybrid camber/rocker puts camber underneath the bindings and rocker at the tip, center, and tail of the board for float in powder, edge control, and plenty of pop
- Super Fly II core strategically places stronger, lighter wood in specific areas of the core to provide strength and pop
- Dualzone EGD places the wood perpendicularly along the toe and heel edges in two different zones to optimize edge control
- Directional Flex means the board is packed with pop at the tail and resilience at the nose to help maintain control in any terrain
- The Channel allows the rider to micro-adjust his or her stance over a greater length and an infinite range
- Pro Tip reduces weight at the tip and tail for less swing weight

Quiver killer! My fave board ever.
There are a lot of mediocre boards out there, and some best sellers. It's tough to find the right board because you can't take em for a test drive before buying. So you're basically buying blind and hoping for the best. Most boards I ride, I like some things about them but not all... except for the Sherlock. There is nothing about this board I don't love, and I'm not letting it go. This will be the second Sherlock 57 I've ridden.
Burton designed this board to be a freestyle pow board, which is why I bought it. Flying V hybrid camber offers the best of both camber and rocker shapes. In powder, it's super floaty both switch and forward. It has a nice loose feel in powder unlike traditional camber boards that are catchy, grabby and difficult to initiate pow turns. Unlike rocker boards that you need to land bolts on, if you land sloppy on the Sherlock the nose and tail are there to center you.
I was surprised to find it dominates the entire mountain, including jumps and rails. It's got a twin shape, directional medium flex and mellow sidecut for park laps.
One side note, Burton stiffened the Sherlock for the 12/13 season by adding triax fiberglass topsheet and carbon stringers. I'm not down with that, but you might be. I'm a pretty light guy and don't like fighting with my board, so that's why I picked up the 11/12 for this season. Happy shreddin!
love my sherlock!
Can i get the sherlock at 157 length and...
Can i get the sherlock at 157 length and still fit a size 12 boot
What type of boot? Burton does this boot print reduction thing where their boots size down, in length, almost half a size. I have a Burton Joystick 159 Wide with 12 boots and it is perfect. I think if you got a wide you would be great. I don't think i would go with a standard width board.
Just for the record, I just got a 160cm with a black base, and it doesn't glow in the dark. Still, I give it 5 stars for looks.
Hey I'm a beginner snow boarder and I want...
Hey I'm a beginner snow boarder and I want a good performance board, which would you recommend me ? (if u can give me a couple that wOuld be great)
Second of all, what other equipment do I need that would work well with the board you recommend ??
Try a Burton Clash - cheap and made for beginners through to intermediate, and its a Burton - you can't go wrong with that !!

Product Review : Burton Sherlock Snowboard mtnweekly.com
First Impression: I asked several people that work and ride Burton snowboards, which of their boards should I demo this season, they all said the Sherlock. I was impressed the first board that came to mind was the Sherlock, so I decided I should get on one to see what the buzz was all about. The board is very flexible and light , I wasnt sure how it would hold up at high speed or on ice. I liked the shape of the board immediately and the bindings were comfortable. The board was surprisingly stable for the amount of flex it had, the tail is full of pop and it turns on a dime. The Sherlock is very versatile, and is great both in the powder and hard pack. The board has a Flying V design , which means there is rocker on the tip and tail and between the feet, but it has camber underfoot for extra stability. I was very impressed with how the board rode from the very second I jumped on it, the edge to edge response was spot on, and it rode great switch, better that some of the boards I have had in the past.
Weight : The board is extremely light , but very strong with lots of pop. The ultra-light carbon backbone increases the pop of the board and keeps it stable in the chop and hardpack. I had a board that was too noodley and it would not hold an edge when laying a deep carve or hitting and extra icy section. The Sherlock was able to hold an edge and powered through the icy spots. There was only one time that it slide out on my when laying down a high speed carve on some corduroy, other than that it passed with flying colors.
Flex: The board is extremely flexible and makes riding wheelies both forward and switch a piece of cake. The flex allows the tail to be spring-loaded , making the smallest jumps and ollies something to be impressed with. The flex is really noticed when spinning for tricks and floating through the trees effortlessly. The Sherlock is a great board blending aspects of freeride and freestyle flawlessly. Never thought a board this flexible would be so responsive.
Turning: The edge-to-edge control is spot on and it turns on a dime. This board rides better switch than many ride forward. It floats through the powder and navigates through tight trees with ease. It also handles well on hardpack and turns smoothly at high speeds.
Control: The Sherlock has great control, and is easy to change direction in a split second. The response is effortless and smooth, a great riding experience all the way around. This board is great in the bumps and very responsive when making rapid high speed turns. The flex helps damping some of the jarring motions of riding mogul runs top to bottom. When spinning 180, 360s and various other jumps the board floats and lands with ease, always ending up on the proper edge to ride out of the trick with ease.
Pop: As I said earlier the tail is spring-loaded and full of pop. This makes hitting the smallest jump exciting and allows you to get the extra pop out of the board. Having so much pop in the tail makes switch 360s a snap , and gives you the extra time you need to stomp you landing. I dont drink soda, but I love Pop, this board is full of pop.
Switch : This board rides switch with ease, due to the stability and flex this is a great board to perfect you switch riding abilities. If you already know how to ride switch you will be grinning ear to ear. The Sherlock is directional but rides switch like a twin tip, landing switch is a breeze on this board.
Overall Impression: I was a little skeptical at first due to the extreme flex of the board , but it soon won me over. The pop and flex make riding this board effortless , the Sherlock is a fun board and crosses all styles of riding and is great in the park , trees as well as all mountain. A great riding experience all around, worth checking out if you get a chance. I would be interested in riding it more, but overall I would give this board a solid A and for fun factor an A+. I am looking forward to seeing how some of the other Burton boards ride compared to the Sherlock, this board is going to be a tough one to beat.
