Burton Cascade Freeride Review

Burton Cascade


Description
High-tech snap, light weight, and a moderate flex for those who are looking for a board that they can bend and flex with the terrain. THE board for a smooth, fluid riding style. Sintered Base: Holds wax, is durable, and moves right along. Lite Triax: Light weight and torsional stiffness. Carbon I-Beam: Lots of snap; stop using cheater jumps to get on handrails. Super Fly II Core: Light, strong, and lively flex. Dualzone EGD: Precise edge hold. Progression Sidewall: Better float in powder.

Summary:
Three stars. I loved this board (5 stars), but it delaminated after 8 days of riding(1 star). First the positive: great power, very very fast, great carver, quick edge to edge, GREAT in powder. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to ride hard and fast all over the mountain. Nice and stiff, not for you new school rail monkeys.
Unfortunately, the topsheet cracked and the nose delaminated after only 8 days of riding. Maybe it was from riding moguls all day in -35 degree weather, but it is still no excuse for a high-end board. I love Burton boards and hopefully their warranty is as good as it sounds and I'll be back out there in a week. Otherwise, I'll take my money elsewhere.

Summary:
This is a great board, i even almost bought an extra to keep that one new i my current one is on its end. I didn't buy an extra yet but i defenitly will if i see it cheap. Great board for cruising, off piste as well as one the slopes. Even in the pipe however then its size (i've the 173 which is rather long for me since i am 186 and just 78 kg) is too much. This year i was going 101 km/h (64 miles/h) and still steady. Cant wait on my next trip

Summary:
I've riddent this board on both wet granular and packed powder. It has amazing response and is a great board. This works best for west coast or riding in the rockies. East coast mountains are better suited for a shorter board. I have it rigged with Switch Special X step-in bindings and have the 173cm model. I am 6'4", 215. It works fine for me and is faster than my Canyon 64.
