All over the Wasatch . Park City, Canyons, Brighton and Snowbird and any where else I can!!
These will throw you back to your childhood days of stomping around the neighborhood with like minded hoodlums. Unfortunately for me, my foot it just too wide. Having that said they seem particularly slim so heads up. You may be able to size up if needed but if you're foot isn't too wide they seem to be about true to size.
I've had three pair of Rogues. I really appreciate the simple lines and the great functionality. The foam is super comfortable and well distributed. The spherical lens and frame shape offer fantastic peripheral vision. They clean up well after a spill. The strap attachments hinge outward to accommodate the extra thickness of a helmet. The height of the lens from nose bridge to top isn't too tall for helmets causing pinching on your nose. They fit med to med/largish faces. Another great thing is the replacement lenses start at $39.95 which is SWEEEEETT!!.
The only thing that would make them a little better would be a siliconized head band so they grip your helmet real nice. Even still, these goggles are awesome. Simple, functional and styilin.
These are very slim and pliable. They fit great under your snow pants. They're not going to take a grenade for you but they sure help with those little bumps and tumbles in the park or even when getting up throughout the day. Burton's website doesn't even offer a size guide but generally you'll measure the circumference 4" above your knee center and 4" below. If it helps at all I measure 18.5" top and 15.5" below center and the large was a little big. I would probably have purchased a medium for more of a snug fit depending on what you are wearing underneath. If you are looking for something more burly I would go elsewhere but for general riding use I would recommend them for the price. Demon makes a pretty sweet flexible option you can see via the link below.
These bindings are the BOSS. It's in the name for a reason. I really really love the level of tweakablility and customization. If you are like me and love your set up super tuned, you will also apreciate what Rome has done with these. The ratchets this year are awesome. They grip like a bear trap when you want and slide off like melted butter when you need em to. The toe cap on this binding is my favorite, ever. It doesn't have any fabric or material to wear down or through in my case. It conforms perfectly to different boot shapes and can be rocked on top or over the toe. The V-Rod base plate gives you a more natural flex on any board and offers more tweakability when getting nasty in the park. The straps are super meaty and even have Auto strap tech that pulls it to the side so you don't have to struggle to get in. Given all those awesome features they even have a CANTED footbed! They come with multiple angle footbeds so you can decide what feels best for you. There really is something to the technology and I've really enjoyed the comfort and enhanced power in my ollies. I weigh about 185 LBS and can take this binding just about anywhere I want. For hard charging mountain and pow, the highback may feel a little soft depending on your preference. Get em' and ride like a BOSS.
Yeah this belt pretty much ROCKS! Just as comfortable as everyone else has said. I also have the standard belt which has a rather wide buckle but this one fits through belt loops much better. I've been really surprised how well my other Arcade belts have held up. If you have ever experienced a discomfort from a belt pinching you or just feeling uncomfortable, do yourself a favor and get one or three of these. You'll never want to use anything else.
I really love the versatility the Amptek camber offers. It floats well in the pow and really shines in the park. This thing kills rails, boxes and jumps. I haven't had a chance to take it on anything over 30 foot but it's been really forgiving with spins so far. I've never been bucked off a rail due to catching either. The 7S Magne-Traction is much less hooky feeling than the original Magne-traction. Durability wise this thing has been doing great so far. I've had a few catch ups and felt a few rocks and have been surprised to see how damage resistant it's been. The only downside to this board is that it's a bit softer than expected. When you are really bombing, it can feel a little soft transitionally. Having that said this board is not anywhere near a 7 out of a 10 stiffness. I would rate it more like a 4.5 at best. I'd call it a park/mountain board. Keep in mind I'm about 5'10" 185 lbs so it may feel prime for someone around 150-165 lbs. I feel like this board would be the perfect one quiver board if it were just a little stiffer. It feels pretty soft torsionally but it's still a completely rad board especially for the price. Oh oh almost forgot! The flatware tips give you an awesome manual surface to lock in some silly presses.
I've heard loads of hype regarding Never Summer boards before I was able to mount up on one of these bad boys. The camber profile on this board is technical but also can be enjoyed by less advanced riders. It has a ton of effortless pop and is super lively yet forgiving. The carbonium top sheet is not only bomb proof but ads some torsional stiffness and also sluffs snow off like a champ so you don't have to pack around those extra pounds. and the Vario Power Grip sidecutcut gives you some extra grip without feeling "hooky". The base of this board is made from the top of the line Durasurf XT material which can take a serious beating and yet it flies down the mountain. Backed by a 3 year warranty, these guys mean business. I would HIGHLY recommend this board.
I have tried numerous body armor and pads to take the edge off the burly tumbles. There are many terrible applications out there. Unfortunately it seems whoever is designing a fair amount of these pieces has little to no communication with the tester or consumers. Poor designs, bad construction and limited mobility are all factors. Demon has been my go to shred armor after a spinal fracture a few seasons back. If you want to progress and go bigger, you need to also take the counter measures. Or be willing to take a beating. There isn't any piece of armor that will keep you from getting hurt but this here vest has saved me numerous times from bruised/broken ribs and probably further spinal determent. It does have a bit of protection up front as well which has come in handy during the occasional rail taco incident. I really love it for the hard shell spine protector. The armadillo like plate structure on the back allows total mobility in terms of bending back and forth. It also has a comfortable padding under it as well. It would recommend throwing a base layer under it so you don't feel scratchy or uncomfortable. The only real downside is the arm openings aren't really spacious. I'm not real beefed up top but it seems a little snugger this year. I'm about 5'10" 180 lbs and the Large seems to be a good fit for me. Also the v neck collar comes up pretty high. I am used to modifying gear to get it to work better for me so I took the liberty of trimming off the collar and making a short incision with a hot knife, just below the arm pits. That gave me a bit more room to work with. It may not even be an issue for you. One of the best vest style spine protectors out there.
I would say i would start to fall apart after a while. The construction is great, don't get me wrong. I just don't see this as being designed to handle that kind of force from the water catching the armadillo like plates on the back for example. Also I would imagine it would be quite heavy when water logged. I would recommend getting a life vest with built in protection. I know they are out there and would be a longer lasting option.
Brad G. pretty much said it all. Good fun ride, little softer than the Mod Rocker. Torsionally it is also much easier to manipulate but still has enough support to get after anything. I'm really diggin the Quick rip sidecut. It offers just the right amount of grip when you need it and doesn't get in your way when spinning, riding switch or flat base. Having that said, if you are looking for a park friendier ride I would get something with the Free Pop (flat underfoot, rocker tip n tail) profile. Great fun and durable board. Can't go wrong with a Rome.
I've been riding this board in a 156cm. After 7-8 days it's finally breaking in real nice. I'm shocked at how well it performs on every condition. I've taking it in pow, tree lines, park and groomers. It just eats em all up. I am currently about 5'10" 180 lbs. This board has just about every feature you could want. Beefed up kevlar plates under the inserts to give you ultra durability and better power transfer to the board. Has the super awesome airpop matrix core which is poplar based so its nice n lite but snaps off mega ollies, especially thanks to the carbon hotrods. I have also really been enjoying the quickrip side cut that offers additional contact points but not too grabby. Regarding the multiple contact topic, I feel like the magnetraction is just a bit much in some scenarios. Just feels a bit hooky sometimes riding switch or spinning. I have a few days under my belt so I do have pretty solid board control skills so maybe i'm just able to get the control I need without it. Granted, magne-traction kills it on ice. I've been on quite a few multi camber type boards (DC, LibTech, Burton, Rossignol, Nitro and Neversummer) as of late. I really really like the 80% flat with 20% ish early rise camber style. It's simple but very stable at slow speed, high speed, flat based, turning and still has tons of forgiveness thanks to the reverse camber tip n tail. Oh one more thing I love! Super rad sintercarbon base is not only lightning fast, it can take a beatin'. Hit a rock today lacing up a tree line. Looked at the base when I made it home and it just had a white smudge I was able to nearly wipe off completely. I would say for a all mountain but really park friendly ride, I would prefer the 153cm. The carbon just gives it a ton of pop and reliability. Due to the early rise I can still float in the pow just fine with minimal weight transfer. I will update this as I get more time on this amazing shred machine.
