All around amazing board
Love this board got it at the beginning of last season and it was great. I ride in the poconos mostly and there's always ice and with the magnetraction you can't even tell there's ice. Also the poconos is all park pretty much and it flexs pretty good on boxes not too stiff not too soft. Took it out west this year too and floated great in the pow and is truly just an amazing all around board. If you have the cash buy this board
What is the one color of the base you are...
What is the one color of the base you are selling in 154.5?? Thank you! JB
how soft is this board? how does it pop?
how soft is this board? how does it pop?
This board is rated at about a 7 out of 10. Depends on how much you weight obviously, but it's a performance board, so we made it a little stiffer.
Tons of POP, ollie it from underfoot instead of the tail/tip to maximize your boost.
is 6ft 190lbs to big for the 157.5
is 6ft 190lbs to big for the 157.5
not do big for a park board if thats what you plan to do with it, if you want it for all mountain you may want to go a little bigger
I'm 6'3" 180. I prefer the 161.5, but I tend to like bigger boards for the stability. I have no problem throwing around a couple extra centimeters. If you've never ridden Banana Tech or reverse camber, maybe stick with the 157.5, you do fit into the weight range for that size.
Great board not as stiff as people are making o ut
OK so I bought the carbon credit 153 and when it arrived it was pretty flexy. I also wasn't sure about the base holding up well so I didn't ride it. I went to a shop in tahoe and they gave me credit towards a Riders choice 154.5. Very cool of them. OK so the first thing I must say is that the RC is not near as stiff as others on here have said. I'd say it's stiffer than the carbon credit but not as much as the trice or even the trs.
Now about the btx stuff:
Magna traction: I rode in mostly packed and normal tahoe conditions the first 5 days. I'd say that you can semi feel the magna traction cut into the packed runs, but nothing like "omg this is life changing" I did detune the board a bit, and really didn't notice it just carving outstandingly. Yes it was better than my last years model burton custom, but nothing 550.00 worth life changing. It's not hard to get used to and something you should not worry about when making your purchase.
Now the Banana part: This is what I could feel the most. It took me a good 3 days to get used to it. It's very hard to explain how it works, but it's def. a bit different. For example, when turning toe side, I would notice the back end starting to drift out a bit, almost like it was sliding. I also noticed that when i hit little jumps/kickers that it's kind of different when it comes to popping off the lift.
Now , I did get to ride last thursday out in mott canyon and what not after the 12" dump over night. We were in such a rush to get out there that I didn't set my stance back so I was riding 50/50 split. It handled the powder the same as any other board I have had. Lean back and just ride. IT again is not just like life changing when it comes to powder. I kept reading about people saying it just floats this & that in powder, but if you know how to ride pow you should be floating in it anyways.
1. I love the flex on it. It's a perfect all mountain board
2. magnatraction seems a tad better than a normal cut but not ground breaking
3. it's not burton
1. heavy. This board is pretty heavy
2. price (I think you can find many boards that will perform this good for 350-400)
3. durabitliy. I see my nose already dinking up and I didn't hit anything at all
4. banana. I am not sold on it
5. hype behind it
last thing, I don't think you should bump down 3cm like a lot of people say you can with the btx. Ride your normal length.
also, have you ever noticed that anyone reviewing something they bought on here instantly think whatever they bought is the best? Well here's an honest review for once.
I am an intermediate to advanced rider. I mostly free ride and hit the green/chill parks from time to time. I do some small kickers but not those crazy 25' ones. I am a great powder rider and can handle any terrain. I am 5'9" @145lbs
Hope this helps you guys
Rider's Choice is a nice ride
Two nights at Brighton riding the RC and I am stoked. The board is a bit softer than I expected, the flex seems to come mostly in the middle of the board between your feet so the tail and nose still provide good pop. The Banana (as always) keeps the edges from catching even while the board is getting loose underneath you or while screwing up a landing. Magnetraction makes up for the soft-ish ride when it gets steep and the board is still predictable when pinning through the bumps on the fast sintered base.
The RC is a great compromise between a mach-10 groomer-ripper and a loosey-goosey jib board. I learned two or three new tricks already, so how can I be anything but stoked?
I am 6' tall, 170lbs and I bought the 157.5mm.
im having a hard time deciding between...
im having a hard time deciding between this board and the gnu altered genetics. any help?
I have the GNU Rider's choice from about 2 years ago. It does not have the BTX but does have the MTX and I love it. I was thinking about getting a new one until I saw the price boost this year. GNU used to be pretty cheap...
I have been riding GNU riders choice for for a few seasons. Great board that used to be at a great price. Boooooh! your turning into Burton.
hey i was wondering if im 150 pounds and...
hey i was wondering if im 150 pounds and 5'10 what size of this board should i get?
you can ride a 151 or a 154
just bought one, same hieght and size as you, guy recommended a 157 so i bought one
I am 5'11 170 and I ride the 151.5 in pow and park, but then again, I am nice.
This is the only site that says the 2010...
This is the only site that says the 2010 model is Magne Traction also, is that true?
All 2010 mervin boards (Lib, Gnu, Roxy) come equipped with magne-traction (MTX). If it says BTX, not to worry, that just means it comes with both, banana tech and magne-traction.
how is this board on rails and jibs?
how is this board on rails and jibs?
I rode this board for two years, If you're like me, you do not have the budget to purchase a rail only board as well as a board for everything else. That being said, I had to choose a board which would be great on jumps, rails, pow, whatever... It worked out rather well, a little stiff in the tail with it's flex pattern but it "broke in" nicely and was able to do butters and presses no problem. It's not as soft as the skate banana but it can jib.
great board! You can size down, (if you normally ride a 155 you can go to the 151 and it will ride in the pow like a 157! The banana helps out alot!) only neg. it takes about a full day of riding to get use to it, and it takes a little bit to figure out spinning and landing.other than that great construction and holds up well to thrasin!
Go KILL IT!
