really not that bad. it clearly has issues as so many people have ridden it and expressed it's faulty nature in their reviews, but i rode mine at sugarbush the other day and had no problems with it at all. i didnt even heat it up, i just cleaned the spot i wanted it, smushed it on, and was good to go. its been a week and it's still staying strong.with such good replacement policies out there it doesnt seem like a big deal to spend $10 to me and find out for yourselves though.
i got this in the limited red and its sweet. bigger than it seems online but still sick. its always getting compliments, and seems ******g invulnerable to anything, i put it through all kinds of ***t and it still looks awesome.
i have last years model, and don't get me wrong, i love this boot, it is a great all mountain boot, but it creased oddly and when i turn turn toeside it requires alot more attention and force than my previous boots/binding setup did. other than that, its a warm boot, has a narrow footprint, and is pretty light as far as boots go. i would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good all mountain boot, but you should ask around and look into how it breaks in.
i agree with Dave. head with the exiles if those are your two choices. but if your set on burton and want another option i would look for something like the p1's or infidel for strictly park.
i myself ride the cartels, i bought my first pair this year in a very bold purple color. i love em, they're stiffer than a park binder needs to be but they slay the whole mountain, i put them on my TRS BTX and i love them.
SO SICK. it's a terrific board. i was hesitant about banana tech at first, and about magnetraction, but both are well worth the pricetag. it's buttery for a stiff board thanks to the reverse camber, and therefore a pretty good park board, but its also great on trails and in pow. magnetraction is sick on ice, it's only thing that makes it easy to ride the east coast for me. would absolutely recommend it.
very good park board. I have the 154 with Custom brews in green. it looks sick, always got compliments on it. its stiffer than i expected, a little stiffer for rails than id like, but great for jumps. its very stable, never had a problem with chatter at high speeds. would certainly recommend it.
really good fit for a medium sized face, love the spherical lens=great field of view. very comfortable and padded on the face, and fits very well over my helmets (hifi and mutiny, meaning all smaller helmets like berns will fit really well).
looks so sick in Opal. one of the warmer jackets ive ever had. i ride the ice coast, from VT to NJ, and this is warm enough to keep me comfortable with just a baselayer and a LS shirt under it. good pockets, also has a sick lining with bikini girls plastered all over it. also comes with a soft balaclava built into it(detachable). at the sale price its basically a steal, would definitely recommend it. it does fit slightly small however. i sent back my original size for one larger. if your into the tighter bootcut type pants then this is for you,but if your like me and like moderate fitting gear, not too tight, not too baggy, then i'd recommend sizing up one.
Great binder. Really solid performance for all mountain freestyle. I wanted something stiffer than my old bindings that would perform all over, so I took a leap and bought these. Best choice ever. They deliver in every manner possible, but do cause a little calf bite, which actually seems normal as they have the highest back I've ever ridden, but once you're used to it your stance adapts so no more bite!
This coat is very warm and since it fits slightly baggy, it helps stop wind. It has so many pockets that I cant even count them all, and they are in places that are actually quite useful, such as the eight pockets that are on the from of the coat, two off to each size of the coat, and 3 on the right side of hte zipper and an big MP3 pocket on the left of the zipper. It has a soft quilted inside, but its thinner than I had expected, the coat is overall quite thin, and it seems as though it wouldnt keep you warm, but it does.
My only complaint with these is that they do tend to fog up a little bit on sunny days, and that they don't have a spherical lens, which is a really good thing to have. but otehr than that they are great goggles, and they havent cracked like my old pair did (face plant with a broken colarbone).
I would give this a five, because it is a really really nice looking watch, but it scratches very easily (dont let that discourage you from buying it) but after the second scratch you dont pay much attention them anymore. Also, this is not a watch meant to tell time, it is mainly for aesthetics.
