Burton Michi Freeride Review

Burton Michi


Description
Check out one of Michi’s video parts; if it’s anything you’re interested in then check out his board. This is the versatile board that he uses to kill it anywhere he rides. Super Fly II core with Lite Triax glass gives it a lively flex and the 161 cm length won’t let you down on powder days. Sintered Indium Base: High-tech speed on all types of snow. Lite Triax: Light weight and torsional stiffness. Super Fly II Core: Light, strong, and lively flex. Dualzone EGD: Precise edge hold. Graphic Tech: Glow in the dark topsheet and base.

Summary:
This board is Awsome - handles anything you can throw at it and really stable and grippy on ice. This is one fast board greta base tough and durable. Probvably the best board i have ridden. Enough flex in the tail to land jumps but stiff in teh middle section (thanks to those carbon ibeams). Great all rounder - but not ofr beginners.

Summary:
I really like my board, but I have noticed that other people who own the same board have a different color and pattern. Mine is dark blue and the ghost pattern is different. If you compare it to the catalog too, it is different too. Can anyone tell me why this is so?

Summary:
If you like technical freeriding with fast turn or going huge in pipe and park, picking out this board will be a good choice. Assuming your condition and technique are all right. But jibmonkeys better stay away from this board since it's incredibel stiff and unforgiving.
So if you have small feet ( width 24,5cm) and like to go fast and technical, this is your board.

Reviewed by: Nigel Wilford ,  Intermediate , from England

Summary:
Grips like a python, solid as a rock. I rode a factory choice 63(GNU) before the Michi, the Choice was fun, but seems whippy at speed in comparison. The Michi is a little trickier at low speeds but is fantastic at cutting through the crud. Wicked at landing - super all round performace. Great in the Pow!!

Reviewed by: Federico Bernasconi ,  Skier , from Zurich, Switzerland

Summary:
Best board I've ever had. Easy to turn and in the same time aggressive, it depends on you! Very good in the pipe, I love it on icy slopes. Very good flex and the radius is perfect to use it in any conditions.

Customer Service:
Very good, friendly and ready to help you.
