Burton Face W Freeride Review

Burton Face W


Description
Victoria wanted a board to crush the stereotypes of what a women's board should be. She knows that women riders need a solid, stable platform under their feet in order to progress their riding. If a board is too soft, it will flap and chatter which makes it even harder for women to ride fast and land tricks. These boards can handle anything you want to do, whether it be in big mountains, backcountry, kickers, or anywhere else on the mountain. The Face is a snappy, solid, stable board built to handle all conditions. 100% developed and ridden by women. Sintered Base: Holds wax, is durable, and moves right along. Lite Triax: Light weight and torsional stiffness. Carbon I-Beam: Added snap. Super Fly II Core: Light, strong, and lively flex. Dualzone EGD: Precise edge hold. Progression Construction: Better float in powder. Sizes Developed by Women: All.

Summary:
I loved this board! Took me a couple runs to get used to it, but once I got the feel of the turns it was fantastic. Held an edge thru serious crud on a 60 degree day. Feels strong underfoot, and you can go really fast and still be in control. Takes some strength to control though.

Summary:
The Face is the best! You literally float over deep powder. Other boards would just plow; this board is so much fun. I ride a 160 and was very hesitant on such a long board. Not anymore. Looking forward to this season.

Summary:
Awesome board.. ive been through several boards this season alone, in search of a perfect one and I think i've finally found it. With this Face 155 I wear Burton Freestyle SI boots size 10 and they are in the upper limit of foot size for this board. no overhang though so its cool. I use Burton Mission SI bindings.. they're heavy but thats a different story..

Summary:
This is a review on behalf of my wife...we bought her this board three days ago in a size 148. The women specific boards like this have really only been around the last two seasons.

She loves the board, it's fast and stable at speed, something that she found uncomfortable before on shorter, stiffer boards....the board is stiff, but confident. The sidecut is outrageous on the 48, 6 and a bit metres!!! Now, that carves like it's going out of fashion!!
