Burton Dominant Snowboard 156
Another park destroying board from Burton built for anything the park crew's nefarious minds can put together. With beefy sidewalls, park edge and a rail ready tune there is no rail it can't handle while the Elliptical Kicks, Pro Tip and Lightspeed Vision base make spins, ollies and rough landings seamless. A Park Fly core and Dual Density Biax glass give you the pop and flex for taking on any kink or urban jib then throw in the added life that infinite ride provides and you'll see why they named it the Dominant!
Burton ICS channel boards will only work with Burton EST, Burton 3-hole or other ICS compatible bindings.
Burton 3-hole boards will only work with non-EST Burton bindings or other 3-hole compatible bindings.
To the men's snowboards now. We'll start out with the Park category. So with this, we're looking at snowboards that, you know, you're not limiting yourself to park riding, but they definitely cater to and excel in the park arena.
First off we've got the Burton Dominant snowboard. You know, really this snowboard is designed for Midwest riding. It's got a pretty square shape with a mellow side cut. It's really predictable, stable and easy to ride. This is the first level we introduced the Park Fly Core at. It's a little more beefy between your feet; but reduced swing weight between the tip and the tail.
A couple of new things this year: it does come with the park edge, so again, a thicker metal edge to help withstand impacts of handrails, or boxes, or any sort of abuse you can throw at it. It comes with Lightspeed Vision base, kind of like a skateboard looking graphic. It's pretty rad, like old-school kind of trashed base; and then grip tape top sheet. Stickers will hold on this too, it's pretty rat.
It's a Directional Twin. Comes with centered stance and Directional Flex, but a twin shape. It's more of a mid-wide. This is a snowboard you'd want to ride a little bit shorter than your traditional snowboards. So if you typically ride a 156, I'd say step down to a 154 in the Dominant. It's super playful, fun, and easy to ride. So that's the Burton Dominant snowboard. You can't go wrong with this piece.

I put this board threw everything on the mountain and off and it took it like a champ. Board has some pop to it, flew is decent. It is a little unstable at higher speeds but not to bad. Overall pretty good board.
I had this in the Ostrich top and it looks awesome. It was a really fun board and really soft to muck around with in the park or just flat area. It was a bit slow as it had extruded base. But besides that, can't fault it too much. May not be the best for high speed riding, but I never really had any issue until I compared it with my current board (Ride DH). For the price, can't fault it.
It a good board for all mountain riding with some park mixed in. It has a good flex but is stiff enough to carve well.
I have had my 146 Dominant for 3 years and just sold it yesterday to upgrade to a bigger board. All I can say is domination, in the park. The rail ready edges make such a difference when trying to nail those hard battleship rails and you wont bust it catching an edge. The board also has really good flex which is great for buttering or jibbing. The only cons I can think of is that its unstable at high speeds if your used to a board that is stable. By the way, the skateboard design is sick!(Grip tape on top, scratched look on bottom.) Awesome!
"Dominant, first board"
My setup is '09 missions and motos (definitly regret getting all the burton) Its a great board, i'm very happy with it. Mostly use it for park, holds up well and is more sturdy on rails and boxes compared to other boards i've ridden. The 2 worst things are its weight (so downsize) and not as flexy as I expected. But its still a great board no matter where on the mountain I take it.
its good for everything i ride.. a little heavy plus i got it on the big side because my first board..but i like it for rails alright for powder nice on groomers make sure you get it smaller than normal cuz of weight
overall a nice board for the beginner park rider. this board progressed my park skills and at the same time I had no problem with it outside the park, good edge on groomers and just flexable for park and all mountain. A lot of people say this board is just for the park but its a really fun board for any beginner. only downfall is that its a little heave and gets banged up easily on the sidewalls and topsheet. handles everything a beginner can throw at it and not bad for an intermediate looking to start in the park also.
