Burton X8 160 - Snowboards: Reviews

ULTRA-RESPONSIVE

In the X8, Burton brings the baseless binding back—with major improvements. Thanks to a cushioned platform, you get the main benefit (incredible feel) without the usual drawback (it has unlimited stance options). The deck's negative core profile—thin underfoot for more flex, thick everywhere else—enhances the hair-trigger response, while its true twin shape and tapered tip and tail make spinning switch effortless. burton.com

Bonus: Burton's Infinite Ride technology breaks the board in for you.

Bummer: The binding system (called E.S.T.) uses only two screws; bad news if one comes loose.
