Description: Burton Root Snowboard
Whether ripping AK lines or east coast trees, this freerider of the Nug family delivers with a design that lets you downsize 8 to 10cm from your normal ride. Flat Top provides full speed stability without sacrificing the catch-free feeling you'd expect from rocker. Not as park-oriented as the Nug; nowhere near as aggressive as the team-cultivated Harvest, the Root is a highly capable ATV for charging from stash to stash while stabilizing the rough stuff in between.

This is a great board if you are not into park stuff. There isnt really any camber or rocker, so the feel take some getting use to if you use a park board. I like the feel and it works for me. Fast!
Thanks for the reviews! I?m looking to go to a Radactive Burton, but can?t make my mind up between the 2013 Nug in a 142 or 146, or The Root in a 144!
I?m a bit worried about the Nug being a bit to movey with the rocker, higher speed control ? so I like the sound of the flattop of the Root (better at holding an edge?).
On the other side I would be worried that the Root might be a bit catchy on a park box due to the flattop. I?m kind of learning towards the Root, but not 100%. I?m 5?3? (about 153cm) and 65-69kgs (143-149lbs) and I like a bit of park (not massive jumps, just smaller boxes) jumping off natural hips on the runs, and generally crusing, and im ok at switch so ill do a bit of that. At the moment I have an old Bataleon evil twin 149 with the triple base, and like the non catchy feel to it.
At info would be much appreciated.
