Landscape photographer and avid outdoors nut. Hiking, Trekking, and Backpacking are my Spring, Summer, and Fall activities. Snowboarding is my passion in the winter. I love the mountains no matter what time of year it is. They are magical places, unlike anywhere else on earth.
These give you all the ankle protection that you need, and they are full of support and are really comfortable on landings and drops. They are really durable and you can shred the hell out of them, they will last a long time. If you are vert skating, put a piece of duct tape over the toe for when you bail and they will last forever.
Who can pass up a shoe like this? Skating to the 7-11 on hot summers days for a slurpee when I was in Jr High. Plus Iron Maiden brings back tonz of memories. Nothing better than busting out Live After Death and see Bruce Dickinson sporting the spandex. Thank god metal got rid of that trend.
This has such a nice feel to it under foot. It for the flex is surprisingly stable at high speeds, carves like a champ, has killer pop, and handles the pow like it was meant for it. Had an incredible time on this board. For sure for the price, well worth it.
I got the luck of riding one of these for a day after a 17" inch burial. it was so sick in the pow, it worked through the trees with precision and was so much fun to ride. Not to mention the sexiest top sheets in the biz. Arbor Rules!
This is a great all mountain board for those who are used to a stiff flex. It took a couple of runs to get used to. Once I had it dialed it was so stable at high speeds, held an edge like a champ, did not seem like a log under foot, and was even fun to pop some jumps with. Really a nice board, similar to my Custom X, so it really takes top honors in Burton's line.
I have not been too impressed with Rome lately. But I got to ride this for a day, felt great under foot, was solid off anything I hit and It was stable at high speed. If you are looking for a good all mountain board, this is a great choice.
