2 Response to "Snowboards 2010: Reviews"

  1. Anonymous Said,

    Burton T6 is the ultimate all-mountain freestyle snowboard designed to rip really fast and hit big airs. This is a snowboard that is not designed for the newbies, it is a big rider snowboard. This is the same board that Burton had some of their biggest and best riders demo to make sure it could keep up.

     

  2. These are some notes on test sessions 2009;
    ___
    Rossignol Big Gun 2009: Fantstic in powder, but that's it. I give it a 10 outa 10 for powder, but overall a 6 out 10 for the whole mountain, on the slopes she feels heavy and does not carve. A great second board to have.
    ___
    Rossignol Jones: A great board to do anything - everything just works on this board - high speed black powder slopes, high speed jumps, switching feels completely natural, you are in full control at high speed jumps, compare it to cars it's a Porsche Cayenne. And it's great value for money - 400,- euros. You will need to get used to it, at low speeds she feels heavy and is hard work. With the Jones you will have an amazing learning curve. She even carves. You will need very rigid boots to ride this one, Burton Driver X would be my recommendation with the Jones bindings. I give it a 9 outa 10.
    ___
    Nidecker Proto: If I had the money I would buy her. She's a freecarve board, combining carve and all mountain - high speed precision and comfort - just lean and she does the rest. 10 outa 10.
    ___
    Dupraz: I didn't think combining powder and carve was possible, well it is! Fantastic in powder, she carves on ice and crud! In the powder she does all the work, on the slopes though, you will need big leg muscles. 9 outa 10.
    ___
    SWOARD: THE ULTIMATE CARVING MACHINE. Not for the faint hearted, she starts working at high speeds.
    ___
    APO Source 2008: Reasonable board to go anywhere, very forgiving, ok in powder, a fun board to ride but you will not progress and it really does not work at high speeds, no carving in it what-so-ever. I give it a 5 outa 10.
