The Burton Hate is made to kill the street. It has a mellow v-rocker with new frost bite edges which help you grip the snow when you need it. The edges are rail ready out of the box, so no detuning necessary.
The Hate is one of my favorite boards, it is super soft, allowing you to get all the presses you can handle. Great shape, and some of the best graphics on the market.
This year the has Jumper cables and flat kicks. These both are there to give you the snap you need to get those hard way 270's out of handrails. Soft, fun and playful. A great deck.
