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.
If you wear a 11.5 boot without shrinkage tech, you'll get a little more heel/toe drag than you'd like on the Burton Antler Snowboard.
I too was worried about the same thing...I got the 2013 model with the happy faces. I sized down from a burton uninc. 156 to the 151 2013 antler. The deck itself is very playful. I mean very playful, lots of pop, easy to press, but still very solid when bombing the hill. I've noticed the edges aren't quite as solid on ice as a the camber design, but with the rocker shape makes riding switch a breeze. More forgiving on sketchy landings.
I was told NOT to buy a Flying V type board as my primary board that's why I'm asking. I have boarded off and on since 1994. I'm buy no means a GREAT rider but I land pretty much all my grabs off of any terrain park I've ridden in fromTahoe to New Hampshire. I cleared 30ft table tops at Mt. Hood so I would say I'm "decent"
I've been riding the same board since 1998 (I love it!) A Burton FL Project
I never even thought about buying new equipment until one of my buddies said "Bro ....do you even understand the technology improvements that have been made since 1998!"
So do you guys think I'll like this board??
You imput is greatly appreciated!
The Burton Antler Snowboard has a Flying V profile shape. The only reason a Burton board would have the Flying V name in the title would be if the board comes in different profile shape options; like the Custom or Custom Flying V.
I surprised that someone would would tell you not to buy a hybrid profile board, they must associate a bad riding experience with them. I for one, love hybrids like the Flying V profile, it's a great combo of the aggressiveness of camber and the playfulness of rocker.
Whenever I get to test the Burton line, the Antler always sticks out as one of my favorites. I love that it have the Flying V profile and the 60° Carbon Highlights that run throughout the board make it really easy to manipulate with your feet making it loose torsionally but poppy laterally.
Thanks for looking for answers from us - it looks like you've done your bit of research!
A majority of snowboarders do not have boots that feature Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Technology like your Burton Ambush Boots have - that is one reason I'll always suggest size 11 boots on 25.8cm width boards, but there is always a little wiggle room.
Your boots have an imprint of a 10 and you'll be okay riding the Antler's 25.3cm width. We're similar sizes, I'm 6'4", 210 lb, and size 11 boots - I tested the 160.5cm Burton Antler Snowboard with size medium Cartel Bindings and size 11 SLX Boots, I didn't have any problems laying down deep carves. The Antler is an epic board, you'll have a blast on it, I promise.
