The Burton T6 is the ideal snowboard for those who drop in with confidence on any terrain.

This is a great powder board!
This is a much better option than the Vapor for a powder board with some Burton tech in it. It has adjustable stance for set back, and is stiff as well. Like riding this board when the deep stuff comes to town.
Holy Stiff Board
Don't let the light weight Aluminum core full you, this board is super stiff. Very responsive, holds an edge extremely well and the WFO base goes as fast as you can take it. The only area of the mountain that you can not take this board in is the rail/box section of your terrain park. You can definitely hit jumps and ride the pipe, but Burton will not warranty your board if you slide a rail/box and dent the core of your board. So if you fit into the profile of a freerider that likes the pipe and hitting kickers and like a lot of response out of your board, check the T6 out.
love the T6
I was a little nervous that this board would be too much for me to handle. After taking a few good runs I got the hang of it and love it. With the new Burton CO2 bindings and a little tweaking this thing is a dream going down the mountain. I Love it!
Not For Aggressive Riders - Keep It On The Groomers
The T6 is a light, fast, stable board. But for the price, it's just not very durable for aggressive riders. After only a couple months of riding, the T6 looks shot. Typically, I can get a solid season out of a board before it's retired to rock-board status. The T6 didn't make it two months. The top sheet is buckled, along with several cracks. The bottom and the edges weren't nearly as durable as the ads suggested. I even ripped one of these claimed super strong edges. Maybe this board is just too light and fragile?
I Have the 164W - and even though I've tried to like the board - I'm done hating it and will buy new this season after 20 days on the 05 Version. Don't get me wrong - It holds an edge like a race board, and is stable like a race board (you can't go too fast) - It's just not fun to ride and REALLY sinks like a rock in deep powder.
It's my 15th or so board so after a bunch of years riding - so I ain't no rookie.
Bought a 2006, T6 (159), it being my second snowboard purchase was told by many it was an advanced board and I wouldn't have much fun with it(been boarding for 4yrs now) Boy were they wrong This board is great in all types of terrain. I found it very easy to ride, jump with, and has great instantaneous response. Would highly recommend to those who have good basic boarding skills!
T6 light and breakable
I have the 2005 T6 Snowboard and loved it until the tail folded upon landing in Utah backcountry. I was injured for two months, so caution dont go too big.
Amazing. I bought a 156cm even though Im 6'1" and 170lb and it is fantastic. Excellent response, pop, landing on the park and pipe, tears up the on-piste as well. Toe and heel drag is a myth. Furthermore, I think that since the onset of modernity, the philosophical ability to live in the tension of uncertainty while searching for the truth has largely become a lost art. Philosophy has become a rather grim, joyless, often nihilistic enterprise, knowing neither gaiety of spirit nor love of what is, because, bereft of faith in the order of the whole, it has plunged headlong into the pitfalls of an egocentric need for certainty and craving for power. Although the pursuit of certainty proclaims itself the way to Truth and happiness, it succeeds only in transmogrifying the joyous participation in the whole into a nihilistic isolation in which man, deprived of self knowledge, is diminished to a kind of deified beast.
This board has nitrous built into it. Its the best board I have ever owned. Quick turns, snappy body, hauls ass in all conditions except really deep powder. I strap in, and it takes off, leaves everyone else behind. There is a reason Burton is considered to be the best board company. The T6 is the reason!
Burton T6 Snowboard
Using the board in Boardercross racing in Vermont. This is a very fast base, stiff edge to edge, turns like a formula one racer, and beats alpine board in turns. Solid. Have been riding everything but Burton. This has made me a believer. The T6 is an animal all over the mountain. Likes it when you are fast and aggressive.
Best Freeride Board
The Burton T6 is an amazing top-of-the-line snowboard for freeriding/all-mountain. Super lightweight, yet stiff. Highly recommended. Its great that they made the 164W (wide) this year to accommodate large binding, too.
Best Superpipe board ever
This board is for someone who is a strong aggressive and fast rider. I have the T6 in a 156 and it is the best board for Superpipe ever. You can haul ass and be supported to sky the 18ft walls of today but the nose and tail are just the right softness to let you come back in from that spin. Everyone should have one of these in their quiver.
Light, Fast, Rigid
This is my fifth snowboard over 10 years of snowboarding and no board has ridden as well in all conditions. I am about 5'9 and weigh 165 pounds and have ridden the T6 the last two seasons. This board hauls, holds an edge like a racer board, but is light enough and agile enough to rock the park, the trees, the bumps or anything else. The T6 took a little bit more work in the super deep powder, but this board overall is awesome.
