Michigan - Crystal Mountain & Alpine Valley & Pine Knob
Super versatile board at a decent price. Magnetraction helps on the hardpack and ice, and the banana rocker is pretty forgiving and playful. Definitely an "all mountain" board but it also handles well in the park. Good all over the mountain!
rocker + camber + varigrip + 3 year warranty + toughest sidewall construction in the market + better graphics = Never Summer.
If your board has the standard 3D inset pattern that Burton used for the last decade or so, you should be OK this binding is compatible with 4 hold and 3 hole patterns.
If your board uses the ICS channel system instead of the 3D insets, you're totally screwed, because you can only use Burton EST bindings on these boards.
a 164 you could probably handle it especially in powpow. Look for this year's Capita Party Shark - basically it is the same board but with way better graphics: a party shark on topsheet and the base says "Fuck yeah bro!" Same sizes available 58 or 64.
fits my board, boots and in the space between the bindings you can fit goggles, gloves, and a helmet, jacket, or snowpants/bibs.
No problem. I got the 165 bag it fits a 163 wide snowboard and size 11 boots.
WOrks pretty well keeping me warm on many nights just out doing yard work or walking the dog, well below 40 degrees as long as you have a base layer underneath.
They made a wide version of the BSOD last season but I don't think they're making one this season. The waist on the 162 is ~259mm which would probably be OK depending on your stance angles.
55 seems awfully short for someone 190lbs even if you're only using it for park. I'm 205-210 and ride last year's 161w it works great all-around in the park, groomers, pow.
you could definitely go with the 158 at your height/weight.
Go with the 159W. Sure the 56 will handle your weight it's only about 1" difference in size, but the 59 will probably be better suited and will be able to go a little faster.
I'm about your size (a bit heavier) and usually ride between 160w and 164w.
The 09/10 Hero was 8x2 inserts so you won't need to get the retro-discs to mount these binders on the board.
If you mean you have a 10/11 hero, you'll need to get the retro discs which run about $20 because this year's hero runs the infinite channel system (ICS).
All boots are going to pack out a bit. But you should try them on to find out whether they fit you nicely.
this helmet is absolutely as neon blue as it looks in the pictures. sweet!
I just snagged this of Department of Goods in the neon synth colorway. Out-of-the-box this bad boy is considerably lighter than any other helmet I've touched. I've got a large head, about 7-5/8" fitted hat, so I have a hard time finding one that fits but doesn't make me look like a mushroom. This one is nice and lo-profile, no conehead action, and did I mention it's super light? Can't wait to test it on the slopes & streets this winter!
I love the 2010 Machete. This one looks even sweeter. Slimewalls are the best thing since sliced bread. More of a playful, all-mountain deck than a true park slayer.
great pair of glasses. I got these after looking at a few pair of Oakleys, but the O wanted to charge an extra $50 for tortoise shell colorway. I have a larger head (about size 7 3/4 fitted hat) so a lot of glasses don't fit my face very well, but these fit perfectly - they're big without being bug-eye, and comfortable like you forget you're even wearing them.
No, EST bindings are only compatible with Burton ICS snowboards.
My heli pro pack came with a hydration pack (made by Dakine) but I've heard that the newer bags (I bought mine 4 years ago) don't come with the pack anymore. I bought a brand new Poacher (larger bag) this season, and it didn't come with one.
