I'm 175 lbs and ride the 155cm. This board has taken over my quiver and is now my go to board over my banana magic.
This board rides really well everywhere on the mountain in less than 6 inches of snow, anything over that I switch to a directional board. The camber profile gives it a ton of pop, either load the tail/nose or just straight up. it carves pretty well even on hard snow. Not he best for pipe but does really well. Plenty agile for rails and boxes and holds a press nicely. rides smoothly over just about anything when going just shy of straight down the hill. It floats reasonably well in powder and is easy to turn, but just inst as good as a real pow board.
I really have nothing bad to say about this board, it is just a super easy ride that would be good for anyone who rides freestyle or wants to learn.
I've used them 5 times now on a salomon villain with Ride RFL boots.
They have a pretty stiff responsive base with a pretty flexible highback. The asymetric heel strap is very very comfortable, more comfortable than the burton cartrel and union SL bindings i have had. It also has a hinge that swings the heel strap away from the binding making it very easy to step into when strapping in. The toe strap works good, and seems very durable. Harshmellow feels like a non-newtonian foam and seems to work well in the base and the heel strap, providing a very smooth ride. the bases don't build up ice.
The only bad thing i can say is that the heel ratchet lever sometimes slips on the ladder ONLY WHEN TIGHTENING, never slips or comes loose during riding. Just the lever bit slips not the part that grabs the ladder. I will probably have to get new ladders at some point this season.
EDIT- About 10 day on them now, this hasn't been a real problem. These are the most comfortable bindings I've ever ridden. I will probably buy another pair for my other board.
How many of this item should i buy to get a front and a rear rack?
after riding this in multiple conditions this season, from crap ice, to epic pow days, i conlude that this board is at its best on the crap snow days, it just makes bombing icy runs, and sticking that icy landing, and busting through crud so much easier. It is lighting edge to edge and makes awesoem shor fast carves, if you are flatlining you have to pay attention becasue it naturally wants to get on edge. the Magnetraction and low radius sidecuts make for railed turns despite the high rocker. In pow its not the best, you just ahve to lean back and get the nose to plane and it does fine, ill pull out my pow board when theres any fresh snow and switch back to this when it gets tracked out.
wortht he price IMO. have a size 31 waist got the mediums and the fit perfect with a layer or two under. i think if i got the smalls the would be only good for a base layer.
super solid sonstruction, fabric feels very abrasion resistant. zippers are very solid.
they feel like mountaneering pants but with a snowboard cut. That being said they arent to damn baggy, just right. issues: the ankle zipper flaps catch on eachother when walking, they could have gone without these things at all. The gaiter material is really flimsy compared to the rest of the pants. i do not regret my purchase. there arent many snowboard specific pants with pro shell goretex
These things are super light and very strong. The quality of construction and use of materials is very evident and they are very adjustable. the ankle strap is upper comfy and the ratchet works quite smoothly and is easy to release.
However, the "improved" toe strap still fits weird as a cap-strap and the ratchet sticks and is tough to release; my repair shop straps that i bought in 2001 for 15 bucks work better.
also why no canted footbed options? most of the bindings in this price range at least come with the option.
I bought these put em on my board, strapped in to test and took them right back off. If im going to pay top dollar for something i want gear that works flawlessly.
i would have bought these if they had canted footbeds, not sure why burton left that out on these. they are what they say they are though. Super light, super responsive, high quality materials and construction.

These are the lightest boots I've ever owned. Very comfortable with no pinch points for me. The liner laces with the dual zone boa is awesome and lets you quickly adjust the tightness on the slope. These boots are super stiff definetly a good alternative to the drivers or malamutes if you want the convenience of boa. The sole is all foam and has little plastic spikes under the balls of your feet for grip. Makes em really really light and gripy enough on snow but slippery on linoleum and polished concrete.
The toe caps area nice thick material with internal stitching that should hold up well though. I use these with union sl's and a banana magic. They go nicely with stiff board and bindings.
Ok so after a few(7) days these have packed out and put a nice and painful pressure point on my inside ankle, i tried loosening them but it doesn't make much difference and defeats the purpose of having stiff botos i think. still really well constructed and super light so they are still four stars just not for me i think
sweet ruca shirt. i have had a few of thier shirts over the years and i always liek the simple coolnes of the prnts. im 5'10 160 and a med fits perfect
Probably cool for folks who like botton down shirts but i jus dont like short sleeve button downs. I bought this in the light sage color and got it tried it on kinda liked it but after it went through the wash i didn't feel like ironing so i sent it back. i guess im to lazy for this one.
These are great very high quality pants. nice thick denim, problem is they are not even close to being stretchy as my matix or analog jeans, kinda tight and uncomfortable when i first got them but they have gotten a lot better as ive broken them in. definite slim but straight leg which is how i like my pants. . im 5'10 and 160 ind i got the 30x32s and they fit snug around my waist. they dont squeeze the boys(thumbs up) but they are tight around the buttocks. If they stretched they would get 5 stars. i have the roadhouse jeans in the same size, the biggest difference is that the roadhouses have a slight flare at the opening so the go over your shoes better.
