Custom V-Rocker LTD
All right. Here at The House, talking about my snowboard, this is one of the snowboards I'm rocking this year that and the Lib Tech Box Scratcher. Basically, on this one, it's a super, super cool Burton Custom V-Rocker. The new snowboard form this year, Custom's been famous in line for many, many years. This year, they added the V-Rocker to it, making it even better for any kind of terrain ride in.
What you're looking at here, like I said, the V-Rocker, it's basically, they have the Rocker in between the bindings. When you press it flat, you get a full contact with the snow, with the rail you're 50:50ing definitely my favorite way by doing the Rocker. From there, you got the Channel, are the only Rock snowboard that the Channel from here on out, combined with an EST binding, and it's definitely the best interface going on in the market.
You have to get the EST binding if you're looking at a snowboard of the Channel. It's going to free up all the hard plastics underneath your foot so you're not going to have a dead spot at the flex to the snowboard. All that material has been replaced with EVA foams so you have an increased cushion in, at the same time, better snowboard feel with no hard plastic dampening the feel. And then from there the mounting positions are on the outside, so you're going to, while your foot is in there, be able to adjust angle, width, toe-to-heel, pretty much anything you want to do with the binding, and you do that at the top of the mountain before you go down. So, you start up at the top of the Mammoth, you're going to shift the binding back a little bit more nose and tail, be able to go down Dave's Run, with some ability to take up some uneven terrain. You get down to the unbound park areas, you shift it back forward twin the snowboard out, really takes advantage of the versatility of the custom snowboard.
From there, you got a slew of other features with this one. Basically, what you got is a very twin-like shape, a little bit more nose than tail in this one. But like I said, you can definitely easily twin it out or make it direct some snowboard for the pow. You got the 10:45 sidewall on this one. Starts off in a slant and then right over the edge it goes almost vertical and puts a lot of meat around the edge, so it's going to take a lot of hits and damage from ice or from metal but then it does a sidewall at the top to reduce the overall weight.
This one does have the pressure distribution edges right underneath the bindings. You're going to get a definitely increased edge grip, that technology does bumps out the edge a little bit. You can't really see it with the naked eye, but instead of just having a point of contact here and here, it has one right by the bindings as well, too, so climbing icy pipe walls, riding here in Minnesota like I do. All these things, you know, definitely, it's going to get a little better with the snowboard that has the pressure distribution edges.
From there, you've got really nice sintered die-cut base. This one is definitely one of their nicer bases that's the end to all base. It has a lot of wax as it comes from the factory, that's ready to rip for good, you know, by five times out, but it does absorb wax when you wax it, and the more you wax it, the faster it goes. Other than that, you know, it's got the Infinite Ride process. They put into the machine that simulates three years of usage. Basically it will have the same flexibility as when you take it out of the box, as it will three years down the road.
New to the snowboard this year is the Lightning Bolts. Basically, what they'll do is they'll take carbon running from the track running out to the snowboard edge. So, it kind of just like their engineered grain direction does. More so, it amplifies the power from the track to the edge of the snowboard. Super, super versatile snowboard. Definitely my favorite snowboard in the Burton line. Like I said, I'm rocking this 159 that you see right here. Better get the Burton Custom V-Rocker snowboard, because with the newness of this snowboard, they're going to go quick. Awesome, awesome shred stick.

"Super Solid All Around"
I bought this board last season as my do it all deck, and it honestly stood up much better than I anticipated. I do a ton of park riding and the rocker was excellent for presses/butters, while still allowing the board to retain a decent amount of stiffness to give solid pop and stability at speed. The slightly directional shape make the board fine for switch riding, and its decently forgiving flex and rocker makes it a solid selection for the above beginning-intermediate rider looking to improve their skills. I also had the oppourtunity to take this board out into the backcountry, and I found it performed excellently out there as well. The rocker helped tons with float in the powder, saving me a huge amount of effort to remain afloat. Burton rates this deck as a 4 on the stiffness scale, and I'd have to agree, however I'm a pretty big guy (6'2'', 190lbs) so I was able to get it into a deep press without much effort. Smaller riders may find this a tad difficult. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this board to anyone. 5/5 for sure.
really good all mountain board very easy to turn and absolutely no edge catch (great for improving switch riding) you can go really fast on that thing!
the burton v-rocker is my favorite board to use. ive only used twice but it had a great effect on my riding.
"Love the Burton Custom in all its forms... "
I just finished putting 2 days of riding on the 2010 Burton Custom V-Rocker 159.(NW POW, semi-heavy) This board ABSOLUTELY RIPS, in EVERY catagory!!! Ive been ridin since '93 and Ive owned just about every type/brand of board there is and last year I rode the 09 Lib Tech Skate Nana for 10 days in every condition. (from early season, icy, sick pow, mash potato, etc... I ride EVERYTHING from park to grooms to backcountry to steeps. I dont discriminate! lol!) I LOVED the Naner but it was just missing something...Here are some of my opinions about the 2010 Custom Vrocker:- SUPER easy to ride, from beginner to Expert. no adjustment needed. - it floats well in pow (about a foot deep), remember this is no fish or malolo but it rode fine. - it handles great on groomers, I let it go a few time down the hill and this thing just holds like its on rails, I never felt sketchy at all. - V-rocker was noticeable but nothing like the Naner. Super easy to butter and turn on the flats. - take the Burton flex rating with a grain of salt, I was a bit worried in the beginning but NEVER once did I feel like the board was too soft.
"custom v rocker"
i snowboard for five years i try over ten boards and i figure out the custom v rocker is the best board i ever ride ,groomed,ungroomed,off traill,powder,you name it this board is gonna do it at the highest level,5 stars of 5
This is a great board. I was skeptical at first with the v-rocker. But after riding it a few times I was a changed man. Its almost like a new sport all together. The v-rocker makes it feel very different. Its a good different though you will enjoy it. The softer nose than tail is great for powder as it allows the nose to float more. Also the EST is an awesome system!
"Love this Board"
This board is absolutly awesome i tried it out a few times but i would love it have it, its light gets great air and you can do some sick spins on this bad boy
The V-Rocker is awesome. It makes it pretty difficult to catch an edge. Great in the park and all over the mountain. I have been able to progress to bigger air and easier spins with this board.
"classic with a twist"
this is my second custom with the channel my first didnt have the vrocker bend but still a great board. i assure you if you purchase this deck you will love it i can tell you it will inspire a lot more trips to your resort of choice.
"Lightweight, good bend, smooth"
i bought this board last year, rode it only couple of times, can't wait to ride this winter. pretty light weight, it is flexible overall, i love it!
