This helmet has saved me some serious dane bramage in the past. The sizing is accurate and the boa system works great. It works well with my Anon haykeyes. The best part of this helmet is that you can use it from the coldest blizzard to the warmest spring day. When its warm, you can take the ear pads off and open the vents up. When its cold, you just shut the vents and no more icy gusts getting to your head. I use a little trick to keep the wind from getting through the spot between your helmet and goggles. You can take the liner out and can adjust it forward about a half inch. It sticks out a little but when you put your goggles on, they go on top of the liner covering your forehead.
Its a great helmet that protects your head (trust me). Its light and stays in place. Its very customizable and you can wear all kinds of beanies underneath or just wear it as it comes. The price is a little up there but you wont find anything that this helmet is missing. You wont regret getting this one
Let me be clear, there is no insulation whatsoever in this jacket. There isnt even really a liner. Its just a waterproof shell and a thin (not warm) material to line the inside. It works great for warm days, slushy and all. There isnt much to it. Two outside hand pockets, one inside for an iPod, nowhere to hook your pass (its not a internal pass pocket, its for an iPod). Its great for what its made for; keeping you dry. It will barely keep you warm. It'll stop some wind and its got pit zips which is good cause I only use this on warm days. I love it though and I only gave it 3 stars because its not worth $190. I payed $50 for it from a friend...at that price its 5 stars. It works like a big waterproof hoodie, which explains the name and it keeps you dry. It looks good and it does what it says..but seriously, its just a hoodie
Also, thank you Dogfunk for not editing these reviews like other websites. Cant blame you guys for the price. Great website
works well when you can find it. its a little small but works good when your on it. i got the clear one which was kinda dumb on my part cause i have a solid colored board which covered in snow makes it kinda hard to find while getting off the lift. but the points are sharp and keeps you on your board
So I ordered a 149 which is too small for me but it ended up being really fun. I got a 156.5 DC PLY that fits me alot better as my main board. I use the Tone as a backup board now when my PLY is in the shop. Anyway, this is a really fun board. It holds its own on some bigger jumps (even with it being too small) so im sure if I got a 156 it would be great, but it presses surprisingly well and is super fun on rails and boxes (hasnt hung up on me yet). It doesnt catch very easily and I found its easier than my PLY to land spins with. DC makes amazing bases. I dont get stuck in flat spots even on slower days. This has the same base as my PLY and I havent had to wax after 4 days so far. Id recommend this board to anyone. It can do it all. It rides easy for beginners and its playful but responsive for any kind of advanced rider. I wish I got it in the right size cause it really is a great board.
This board is perfect. Ive noticed this is a really great jumper board despite some other reviews saying its more for jibbing. Its great for that too. The lock and load camber i think is the perfect board profile. You can bomb a run and jump like a camber board, but it cruises and is catch free like a rocker board. The base is amazing. Ive had 4 long days on this board and it still doesnt need waxing. Its also really fast. Like REALLY fast. I dont know if its the base formula or the structurn dimples that do it but rarely do i ever get stuck on those flat connecting trails anymore. I cant say enough good things about this board. I love that DC puts such great work and high end quality into their boards and the best part is that they can keep the prices on the low side. A board like this from burton is gonna go for at least $500 or more. Way to go DC, you guys nailed it
Ive ridden these about 5 times already this season. I had a pair of restricted burton missions that were awesome, but i needed canted footbeds cause my bad knees. These are just as good as the missions. I love all the custom options on these and at first they seemed useless. But once you use them, it all falls into place. Theyre great for everything. Theyre stiff enough to hit booters but flexible enough to jib around all day. I love my burtons but theres almost no stance adjustment options. I guess theyre trying to get you to go est. The rome discs allow you to micro adjust by a couple millimeters. I still think the mission ankle and toe strap are the best on the market but the 390 bosses are a close second. The paint chips a little bit pretty quickly but its nothing that effects the performance.
To sum it up, every bit of new technology on these bindings work perfectly. I think theyre a little expensive but their performance makes it worth it. If you have the money, go with these
The double kingpin is a huge breakthrough in longboarding. Its great for a campus cruiser or any trip that doesnt have a giant hill. Taking these up to speed is a mistake. I raced some neighborhood kids with these and 27 stitches later, I know not to use these for stuff like that. However, they are the most fun Ive had riding around the neighborhood. They turn super tight and super smooth. Put some soft wheels on your board and its pure carving paradise with these. Love them, despite our little concrete quarrel
The spikes are pretty sharp so they dig into your boot. It also is 3 separate pieces so you can set them up however you want them. I spread the smaller pieces out about 1 inch from the bigger one so it covers a good portion of the board. I love how you barely notice the clear one at first glance. Works great. Hope they keep making this style
I usually use the other one without the fleece. It takes a really cold day for me to need a warm face mask, but this will do it. It fits perfectly and is really long so it covers your neck. A lot of other facemasks dont stay in place when you move your head, or it's hard to breathe through them. This is snug on your face but not uncomfortable as it's pretty light. You can also flip it and wear it without the fleece. I really cant stress enough how perfect these facemasks are. You dont have to think about it which is the best thing about these Fleece or no fleece, theyre the best. Just get one and find out
I like it a lot. Not too tight, not too loose. It's warm like a beanie. It's comfy like a beanie. It fits like a beanie...It's a beanie
im 6ft and 160 lbs. i wanna ride all around the park, big and small features. but i also need to keep up with my friends who bomb every trail. i figure 156 is a good size for me but i heard you can ride this board a little smaller. what should i go with?
i wear these all the time. super comfortable. they look awesome and they are really durable. ive marshed through a lot in these and theyre still not worn out. i have a couple pairs of shoes and these are my favorites
These are cool as hell. they ride super smooth and buttery. havent taken them up to speed yet but they are super fun to cruise around on
they get the job done. they are no-nonsense goggles that dont fog up and are very comfortable. the lens is slightly distorting as its not a fishbowl lens like some higher end ones. but its not a problem. the only reason i use my anon hawkeyes over these is because the sideways peripheral is fine, but the up/down peripheral is a little cut off compared to large lens goggles. i bought these first and if i didnt have my anons, i would have no problem using these as my everyday goggles. if you need to save some money, you're not sacrificing all that much with these
i use this for pretty much everything. it came with the sidewinder trucks which are great for carving and cruising. i also switch up the trucks and use the 10" gullwing missions if I'm scoping out some big hills. this is the best board for a long commute as it is light, springy and not too long but just long enough to make the push to cruise ratio perfect. when carving, the springiness of the board shoots you out of the turn and keeps you moving. i wouldn't bomb a hill until you change the trucks on this but for everything else, this is the board to go with
the last reviewer is right that this only fits gullwing sidewinders but this is the most fun longboard that i own. its not made for any other trucks as you wouldn't be bombing a hill with a board that's only 33.75" long. that's a bucket full of sketch in my book. i use this one for getting from A to B if A to B isn't too far and doesn't include a paved everest. its a perfect campus cruiser since its so small and has a kick tail. the sidewinders are a huge breakthrough when it comes to maneuverability. it turns on a dime and i never get bored of riding this. i have another board for bombing hills but i use this one most of the time for everyday transportation...
p.s...I raced some neighborhood kids on this instead of using my downhill board...bad idea. like i said, not made for speed. 27 stitches later and ive been eating meals out of a straw for about a week now. DO NOT BOMB HILLS WITH THIS! Still a ton of fun otherwise and if youre using it to get to class or something, go with this board
its 33.75" long and 8.25" wide
its ok for the cold. if you're talking about freezing conditions, you need some extra layers under this
these are ok. they have very good sound quality. I'm not a dubstep gaywad so i can't comment on how good the bass quality is...but its super clear and the earbuds cancel some outside noise. the wire is wrapped in stiff plastic so it doesn't stay put that easy. plus the wrapping wore out eventually and only one of the buds works now. i don't like the fact that you have to be careful with a pair of earbuds as opposed to a set of headphones. the only reason i gave 3 stars is cause the sound quality. i won't be getting another pair of these
if you need something flexy, stay away from these. they are mega stiff. i ride by the fact that you get more out of your board if you have a tight connection to it..therefore i go with stiff boots and bindings regardless of the flex of my board (even jibbing) since i torque the crap out of my boots especially on tweaks. these boots are made to fit YOUR foot perfectly. not only do they have the thermo-mold liners which form to your feet, they have the double boa so you can adjust the top and bottom tightness of the boot. the liner also closes with velcro so your feet don't move around, which USED TO be a big problem for me. also, the lock down lacing system is a nice easy way to tighten your liner quickly. the gel heel and sole make it super light and really soft on landings. all the features they threw into these boots work. they're super responsive and for some aggressive shredding, they're perfect. if you like stiff boots, go with these
