Lap the park or hike a huge backcountry booter.
Inspired by the pro team, the K2 Believer Snowboard gives you the power to sack up and send it. The Believer's super-fast Sintered 4000 base screams down the hill like a banshee with a death wish, and K2's Hyper Progressive sidecut delivers predictable turns and a smooth ride to keep you from actually dying. Dual torsion forks help you pop off cornices like a bottle rocket, while a super-lightweight multi-core tapers toward the nose and tail to reduce swing weight for easier, faster rotations.
- Flatline technology gives you the control and consistent feel of flat camber; highly requested by K2 team riders
- W3 core reduces weight between the bindings without sacrificing strength
- Matrix 1 adds carbon for pop, stability, and responsiveness
- Triax overlay adds directional torsional stiffness for improved stability and edge control

Is this board faster than a burton custom x? both 157
It's not really going to make a huge difference brand new. What you could do is go out and get a base wax or you could use some easy-applicant wax like one ball jelly or something.

i ride a forum youngblood im just wondering what the believer flex is like in comparison??
Rode for the last 2 years. Fun pretty much in any condition. Broke both of them. My brother broke 2 of them as well. K2 replaced them with no drama. Good on you K2! Sorry I can't land properly off of park jumps. Going with Slayblade this year. Hopefully it's like the Zeppelin. That was always my favorite all-around board. 4-5 ft possible in the cascades out of this storm. Gotta go wax!
had the 157 '07 model and it was pretty solid used it for several seasons but it was cut down in its glory due to a pretty big crash. no so great with the park but i recomend this board to intermediate/advanced riders.

Can't decide on whether to get the 154 or 157. I ride a 156 Uninc and have been planning on moving onto a better carve board (although I'm Vermont based). However, the believer has just been winning to many awards to count. Anyway, I'm 5'8 around 165. I'm a pretty advanced rider, mostly carving the groomers, butter and jump off anything and hit the big jumps. Not a huge rail guy but ive been known to hit the boxes now and then. Also, love the powder when the gods smile on VT. Any ideas? 157 seems a bit big for the East Coast. It's either this or possibly the Forum Seeker 156 (for pure speed). Recommendations?
Sounds like you should definitely go with the 157. and move
3 cm on a board like the Believer isn't going to be a huge difference, especially if you're use to riding a 156 Un...Inc as the Believer is going to give you a similar ride. Personally I would say go for the 154 if you're going to keep using the Un...Inc every once in awhile and go with the 157 if you're retiring the Un...Inc.
I'm 5'11" 165lbs and use the 157 for everything. It's a little stiff and heavy for slow speed technical rail stuff but works miracles offpist and at higher speeds.
I went with the 157 to get a wider stance. The 154's 21" setup just doesn't cut it for me.
