This is truly a fantastic mid flexing all-round freestyle board. Playful yet stable enough to handle most riding conditions. It front boards, back lips, spins, stomps and presses. Take it out of the park and throw the whole mountain at it... It sucks up chop, bombs steeps and throws some sweet pow slashes. I'm on the 156, weigh 175lbs and like a mid flexing board. If you like a stiffer platform, check out the MOD rocker. Same shape and camber profile as the Postermania with a few extra bells and whistles and a stiffer flex.
This board is a blast to ride! Flat land buttering = fun. Rails = fun. It's also surprisingly effective on jumps and and at speed thanks to a relatively long effective edge/running length. The blunted shape looks cool and lowers the swing weight which helps increase the fun factor. Skatecore and Hot Rods combine to give the board a forgiving flex that still offers enough pop to clear that "slow sign" the resort puts in your way. Grab one and prepare to tail block and smile your day away.
I'm reasonably happy with the Ozones. I bought mine a 1/2 size down from my shoe size and put custom orthotics in to take up some of the extra volume around my skinny foot. They have packed out to fit perfectly. The flex is a little on the soft side, but that should be expected from a freestyle boot. The overall ride and feel were what I was looking for. Somewhat responsive with decent board feel and a low profile sole. There is, however, a downside. The day always starts well, but after 2-3 hours of riding I can feel the lace routing channels pushing into my shins. It's a dull, annoying sensation that's tolerable, but should not happen in a high end boot. I think that Burton, in an effort to save on weight, sacrificed comfort by removing some integral padding from the tongue. If this issue is fixed you end up with a stellar boot.
