I rode this board a few times, and I dig it. I can tell it's different on the heelside because it's asymmetrical but I got used to it fast. It is REALLY fun to cruise and turn with, and I had no problems ollieing onto rails and off rollers. It is SOFT. That's not a bad thing though, I love doing nosepresses. I don't think it's as poppy as I'd like, but it's do-able. If you're thinking of this board, I say get it!
There is a reason that I have consistently rode the Ollie Pop for four years now... it's hard to leave this board! Ollies are effortless on this thing (duh, it is called the ollie pop) and I love how I can bomb down hills and the board won't chatter. I also love laying down deep carves when I'm just riding around and having fun. I trust this board to go everywhere; park, powder, trees, cliffs... it has not disappointed me. Everytime I ride it, I swear my smile radiates in a 200 mile radius. SO STOKED ON THIS BOARD!
I LOVE THESE GOGGLES. The fit and shape is very, very similar to Dragon Rogue, and the lens are GREAT. I have rode in overcast conditions and I was able to see everything fine. Same lens on sunny days too.... it's perfect. They give me the protection I need from the sun and allow me to see on overcast days, without changing the lens! No fogging, no wind, and I can see everywhere fine... I have crazy peripheral vision and these goggles do not obstruct. They also fit my Smith Maze helmet just fine.
This board has a loose ride, feels kinda like surfing. It would be GREAT in powder, I can tell... unfortunately we had a shit winter last year and the rare powder day we did get, I was riding a different board.
The only complaint I have about this board is that because it's a banana and no C2, if I hit a big tube rail, the board would sometimes feel like it's gonna slip out from under me. That's only if I 50-50 it though.... boardslide is good. On a normal rail, it's fine. Otherwise, it rides great everywhere. Jumps, groomers, you name it. I would definitely recommend this board for powder and backcountry... just can tell it's gonna be a boatload of fun there... but it's fun at ski resorts too. I really love it. This would be a great board to learn on as well. Highly recommended.
This board is similar to the GNU B-Street, but a little wider.
LOVE THIS BOARD SO MUCH! Where has this board been all my life? Right... Roxy. I totally thought this board was going to be really stiff since it is Torah Bright's model and she's a pipe rider. Boy, was I wrong, and am I glad I was wrong. I couldn't believe how flexible it was. The tech specs on here says it's a 6 out of 10, 10 being stiffest. That's about right. I thought it was going to be more like a 9 or even 10.
This board is an ALL MOUNTAIN SLAYER! I have rode it everywhere... powder, park, cruising, straightlining steeps... it performs beautifully everywhere. The C2 helps keeps the board stable when I bomb, and also helps me to lock on rails without feeling like my board is going to slip out from underneath me. I can press fine too, it's fun to butter around with. Overall, I'm just really, really stoked on this board. This just might replace my usual Ollie Pop... get this board!!!!!! You won't be disappointed!

These pants are awesome! They're probably the best fitting and most flattering pants Roxy offers. They're a slim fit and they remind me of Holden. I'm 5'2 and size 5 with junk in the trunk and a small fits beautifully. They are WARM! I got my Torah bright pants back in March so I was able to ride some powder in em and they were just wonderful in keeping my bum toasty warm. I'd definitely recommend these pants!
Well.... First off, I LOVE how super lightweight they are and how comfortable the straps are! Those get five stars for sure.
Now.... These bindings still have forward lean even if it's set at 0. Someone didn't design these right and the highbacks don't go back all the way. The forward lean isn't subtle either- IT'S REALLY THERE. I HATE IT. I feel like I am in such an awkward position whenever I spin or even turn heelside. Don't despair though. THERE IS A FIX!
When you look at the forward lean adjuster, you will see two prongs sticking out below it. Those prongs are hitting the heelcup so the highbacks aren't able to go back all the way. SAW THOSE BITCHES OFF. DIE DIE DIE. Once I sawed the prongs off, I could immediately see a difference. The highbacks are now able to go back further into the heelcup and -gasp- they look like they are straight up! Could it be?? No more stupid forward lean?? I haven't rode since I sawed the bindings, but I will be sure to update my review once I do.
Another thing- SUPER NARROW. Your boots will be stuck and you have to karate kick after you unstrap to get out of the bindings. It's pretty funny.
EDIT - After sawing off those two prongs on the highbacks and riding them a whole season, I now love them. The old boots I had in my last review were the Nike Zoom Force 1, those are bulky boots. I got new K2 Contour boots, and they are much more slim. They fit perfect in these bindings and my boots don't get stuck anymore.
Unfortunately the K2 Contour boots are super smooth, so I had another problem. My toe straps slip all the time. It's ridiculous. Even when tightened to the max, they still slip. I cut up a bicycle tube and super glued pieces on the underside of the toe strap and it seems to help. These bindings are pretty good, but they do need a little tweaking to be perfect like I mentioned above.
These are sweet... I have them in brown and they are mad comfy. The leather doesn't cut into my feet or anything like that. Totally get these.
I have the Black Supernova and let me tell ya, this shit is fierce. I love that it has a picture of my dog on the back howling. Okay, I guess it's a wolf, but it looks exactly like my dog.
I agree with the other review that the goggle clip does suck ass, so I've started wearing a beanie and goggle under my helmet and I've had no issues. I did remove the padding inside to make the fit perfect with the beanie. I have Dragon Rogue goggles and as you can see in the picture, they fit PERFECT with the Maze. FYI, my Maze is a size Small.
I've bonked my head a few times with this thing, and I haven't gone retarded (yet) so it does its job!
I got a new 2009 Cilla top, my other review has me wearing the 2008 one. My 2008 top is a medium and fits perfect, but the 2009 in medium... is HUGE! I should had gotten a small... crap. The only issue is when I ride powder, sometimes it sprays up into the inside of my top. But it's so cute and I love the blue, so I just deal with it... plus it's a nice way to cool down if I get warm haaa. It's a bit long since it's so big, but no biggie, my jacket covers up the black part well. it also matches my shop hoodie which is a plus!
LOVE IT! The sizing is strange though- I'm usually always a medium but the XS fits me perfect. Other than that, it's totally rockin!!
No, it's the womens version of the WWW - the World Wide Weapon
You can ride this board, or check out the GNU B-Street BTX and Roxy Ollie Pop BTX. Both boards are pretty much the same, and they're both like the girl version of this board. VaVaVoom isn't bad, but I prefer any of those 2 boards I mentioned over the VVV
This top RULES! I have put at least 180 days on this top last season (out of 250), and 60 days (out of 80) so far this year, and it's held up GREAT! Just be careful not to let your snowboard rub against the hip when carrying it! It is so freakishly warm, I wore just this top and a puffy jacket when it was -25F and I was totally fine! It's also great on the warmer days with a thin jacket (but not like 50F and over days, I'm sure) It's a wee bit pricey, but after all those days (and millions of washes), I say it's worth it!!!! Definitely would buy another one!
I'm not really sure what I'm doing in that picture I attached, but you can see the Cilla top I'm rockin!
Yikes... $170, I know, I know. I was lucky enough to win a pair of these goggles, and gave them to my boyfriend. He really really likes the lens a lot and they're great for sunny days and partly cloudy days (those days where the clouds blow by and sometimes block the sun over and over) They're not too great for overcast days though, but a shop hooked us up and gave us yellow and rose lenses and the vision is much better now.
The lens aren't mirrored if you guys are worried about that. I can sometimes see my boyfriend's eyes through the lens, but not always.
I LOVE 32 LASHED!! Only thing though is they don't really last a long time if you ride aggressively and ride more than 50 days a winter... I got 250 days last year and went through 2 pairs of these boots. The first pair I got was in my regular shoe size, a 7. Those only lasted maybe 40 days, but they were so comfortable and the flex was perfect. Then for my second pair, I went down to 6.5 and got them heat molded. The fit was FANTASTIC after that, and this time, they lasted longer than 40 days. I wanna say 70 days so far, maybe?? They could still work, but I want a new pair because I love the pink... hahaha. SO BRIGHT in person!! I think this time I will go to a size 6 and get them heat molded again... maybe they will last even longer in that smaller size. The size 7 I had packed out pretty quick, so I'm sure going smaller would help with that issue. But other than that, super comfy and my feet were always warm (provided I wore the right socks for that day). My feet also never got wet, even when hiking in waist deep powder.
It is a super fun board for jibbing and surprisingly stable when going fast... as for jumping, it did just fine, I'm also the same size as you (but 115-120lbs). It's nothing GREAT but it gets the job done for jumps. I prefer other boards for the bigger jumps but it is fun to play around with on the smaller ones
the banana is the reverse camber. it's between the bindings and makes snowboarding so much more FUN!!!!!!!!!!!
It shouldn't mess it up, but I never tune my board and it's still super grippy! It probably wouldn't hurt to ask the shop guy though. I think the magne traction is actually a little too grabby, so I got mine detuned and it still holds a carve well and cuts through the choppy powder (that was a problem before, it was trying to grab the choppy snow when I didn't want it to... now it's so much better)
would this be a good board? dude this board is AWESOME!!!! I demoed it and it rides very similar to a K2 Duchess which I use for EVERYTHING, but mostly park like you. it handled itself great everywhere, and i'd definitely use this board for just a 1 board quiver. soooo fun fun fun
