I'm 195 lbs with a size 10 boot , 5'8". I don't ride freestyle. Groomers and steeps and trees. Am I ok with the 165?
Hi Folks. Wondering if I should go with...
Hi Folks. Wondering if I should go with the 162 or the 165 with the Black Death. I'm 6'4 and about 210, and I'm mostly a steeps and trees charger, not a park or pipe guy. I've ridden the Burton Custom X 164 for several years. The waist width on both Death sizes is fine for me. I want something that will party in the tight trees, and while I see a lot of snow in West, this won't be a pure powder hounder. Thanks for any educated opinions.
It's been a while since I rode a stiff Burton board on the regular, but I've tried the 2010 Custom X. I'm 6'4" also, but 10 lbs heavier than you. I'm riding the 165. It's easy to ride the '65, simply because the BSOD is so light, lighter even than the Custom X. All the weight seems to be centered between your feet, which makes whipping the board around super easy, handy in the glades. The 165 will be my everyday board, and I'll eventually replace my Gnu with another BTX board for those icy and slushy party days in SoCal, so I say 165 for big mountain riding.
What the shadows spawn ...
I'm 6'4" weigh 220, and have a size 14 boot, and since I have a short 159w Gnu Carbon Credit for back up, I picked up the 165 BSOD. Rode this board in Mammoth Mountain one week after a storm dropped 4 feet, primarily hardpack groomers by the time I got up there. I rode the Gnu Saturday, and then the BSOD Sunday, and what a huge difference! The BSOD is super light, responsive when you need it to be, but you can control the float by leaning forward and back thanks to the reverse camber on the tip and tail. I used the recommended stance, and hauled major ass all over the mountain. I hit one patch of ice that made me regret ditching my magna-traction, but the rest of the day went flawless. Can't wait to try it in powder! Also, fairly easy to ride switch, even though it's directional.

Would a 162cm version of this board be good for a size 13 boot?
yeah you should be good to go! this board is sick!
Got this board a few weeks ago and it is totally sick! The graphics are ten times better than you can tell in the pictures and the detail is amazing! Cant wait to get on the mountain

i'm looking at the bsod 156. i'm looking for an all mountain go anywhere board. i'm 5'6 145-150lbs. i have smaller feet at size 8 and i'm worried about this board being too wide. would this board be a good choice or are there better options out there for me?
whats the difference between the black...
whats the difference between the black death and teh totally awesome board
Hey im 6'1"-6'2" and 175lbs. I want this...
Hey im 6'1"-6'2" and 175lbs. I want this board for a mix of park and freeriding. I like the look of the 156cm board but is it too small for me?
What location you going to be riding this at? East or west? Your weight would let you get away with a 56 but if you are going to be riding out west a lot the 59 is probably a better choice. What % park vs freeride? If more freeride go 59 if more park go 56 unless park is going to be pipe and jumps. If you are more of a jibber than 56. I'm 190 lbs and got the 59 for my one to do it all. Since its set back a little i figure it will handle alright for utah's pow but we'll see, might have to get that charlie slasher as well.
what would be a good size boot for this...
what would be a good size boot for this board? is 12 to big?
no not too big. i would say 158 give or take a size would be a good starting point. if you want to go a smaller size for specific riding needs look into a wide option board or if anything, experiment setting your bindings in a way that would reduce toe/heel drag.
the black snowboard of death still lives. the only board that has been in the capita line since year one. evolving thru the years and the trends, this is the most complete black death ever. the board is way more rideable then it's reputation allows. no longer a fully cambered monster, the freeride fk tech keeps the camber where you need it, under your feet. the flat kick nose and tail allow this board to roam around the mountain a little more with it's radar on for wall hits, jumps, pow, high speed hard pack and can even make it happen in a park environment.
this board has basalt stringers, and a very strong and light weight core.
