Burton Triads are the sh!t. I bought them at the beginning of this season. So far I have 77 days on them and they are still in great shape! Sure the screws get loose once in a while but guess what? It's a screw holding together 2 moving parts, yes they may get loose from time to time, big deal, take better care of your sh!t, check em! I actually just bought a second pair when they went on sale for my pow board! Stoked! If ur the everyday rider and are considering these, get them, they will be more advanced than you are! If you are a ripper then you should already know! Check the pros that don't have binding deals and they will be on these or Cartels, check the whole DC team! And if something does wrong, Burton has a great warranty program and Dogfunk's is even better! Just quit hating, damn! Burton makes a great product and Dogfunk is awesome so support them both!
