I could spend too much of your time talking about these bindings so I won'€™t. Here is the important stuff.


The flex and response is great for what I want. I have the Rome Whiteroom and it'€™s a medium-stiff but closer to the medium flex board. These bindings match up nicely. The highback flex is just right. It'€™s there when I want it but I can stick get tweaked out if I feel like it.

The interface is great in my opinion. I have Zero wiggle in bindings. They are locked on just like my resort stick. There can be refreeze issues but I had just as many issues with my Voile set up.

The Flip-Speed risers are my favorite upgrade from my previous set-up. It is really convenient to go from high to low while in climbing mode. This combined with Stride-Right on the highback forward lean make for an easier trip back up.

Honestly the only negative is the cost and the fact you have to buy Karakoram splitboard clips if they are not included on your splitboard.

The Straps and Buckles are good. They rate pretty high on the comfort level. If you are an ounce counter you can upgrade to the Airstrap and shave roughly 150 grams for the pair.

I picked this up a week ago and have hit about every type of conditions in that time. Its a fun board. It really can ride whatever. Uphill travel is good. I have zero complaints about the board. It comes with Karakoram clips.... very nice.

I like to yell this at skiers struggling on icy skin tracks as I pass by them. Honestly, when I'm on icy tracks now, it's a breeze. you save a ton of energy. Slipping and sliding is great if you're in it for a core workout but if you mission is as many laps as possible, buy these or a pair that fits your set up.

Let's get right to the point... you probably won't be able to go up anything over 20 degrees without skins and or crampons. If you live somewhere that has mellow approaches these would be a lot faster transition then having to deal with skins. That being said if you are on steeper tracks most of the time, these will have their moments of use but not a handy as it could be.

The board handles like you would think. It is pretty easy to flex and the nose really helps the float. The Channel system is nice. It allows for a more precise stance width and easy stance changing

The thought of an extruded base splitboard was very intriguing to me. I purchased the 156 in sheer amazement that there was finally a splitboard out that was a durable base for under 500. After getting the board I am a little disappointed. What is the point of making an extruded base for more durability and easier repairs if you're going to die-cut the hell out of the base. I absolutely despise die-cit bases. Not that I have a ton of problems with them but when you catch a seam between 2 pieces it is an issue. I just don't get creating problem areas on the base on a splitboard. Another thing is I use Karakoram bindings and the Karakoram clamps are not compatible becasue the screw holes for the hooks do not go all the way through the board. It may work with a little thought but that isn't something I am willing to mess with especially with the Die-cut base. Other than those 2 things, the board looks awesome. It seems plenty stiff enough. The 156 is stiffer than my 158 whiteroom. The shape is fun and playful. If they would make a single sheet base, I would buy it next season.

I wear an 8.5 and I bought the Med. I think they fit the way they are supposed to. They are light, fluffy and warm. I bought these for mostly cold weather camping. You can venture outside but do it quickly and carefully. If you're looking for something that is more rugged, try the expedition or bootie models by Western Mountaineering. Honestly, beside the oven effect, you barely know they are on.

This years model has more short-glass than previous years. The result is stiffer base plate. This helps separate the cartel from the mission even more. It is now nicely spaced between the Diode and the Mission. The Est Model is clearly heavier than the re-flex but also seems that much beefer. I really like the flex straps. The keep the ankle strap out of the way. Obviously, the EST makes almost any stance you want possible. I have these on my 159 Flight Attendant.

I bought this glove for touring. Mostly for the way up on cold mornings. The windstopper is great. It breathes well and stops the wind. If you ski, you can get away with these as an all day glove. If you split like I do, you can get a way with it on dry snow days. With wet snow they will soak through.

I bought this thinking it was for my fishing Lures.... guess what it's not. Unless, you live in CO, WA, OR, AK and etc, keep looking for another stocking stuffer.

Great wax for most days. It is rated for 28-18 degrees Fahrenheit. Basically, most of your pow days. Buy it, wax it, scrape it, and go faster. Pair this up with a tuning iron and a scraper (metal) and wax till your heart is content.

I measured my hand and I was in the lower end of the Lg/XL. They were way too big in the knuckle area. The hand strap did not have enough contact with velcro. Other than that, they are small, flexible and about the right amount of protection for someone not looking for a plastic/metal wrist guard.

This is 3rd time I have removed the lens ever. I admittedly had a gapper moment and struggled with the nose putting the lens back on. Still only took about 30 seconds.

Like most boards, my stoke level is through the roof before riding it. After 20+ years of riding I'm pretty confident in my ability to pick the right board off the shelf. I focus on specific specs that fit my size and riding style. With the Flight Attendant being a directional board, I was concerned about how it will ride switch. This board is directional but Burton centered the stance between the contact points. I did some research and read or watched a few reviews where the riders claimed that it rides switch pretty well. Its always scary to buy a new board, especially a 1st generation, but knowing your specific fit needs and doing a little research can go a long ways. Can't wait to put some new Cartel EST bindings on it and take it out on a hunt.

If you go on riverboat gambling trips, and make our own beef jerky this board is for you. If you like to putts around the mountain and never leave your comfort zone you should look else where. The board grips like a traditional camber yet doesn't have those annoying contact points. They have replaced that sections of board with a subltle rocker zone. This is a pretty stiff/strong board if you fall in the recomended weight range. I am about 175-180 and ride the 156 and can lean back as far as I want and the board can take it. I honestly haven't been this stoked on a board in a long time. It's a go fast and ride hard type of board. It's almost like the board is asking you to find steeper terrain and and bigger lines. It has a very stable and consitent flex which creates some very nice pop. The EG Sintered Base is really hard and can take quite a bit of impact and scaping before damage occurs. Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner! I mean Powder!
