Here at The House talking about the Burton T6 snowboard. What you're looking at is pretty much the highest end free ride snowboard in the range. Definitely going to be the stiffest snowboard they got. You're looking about an 8 out of 10 on this one. It's going to be highly responsive snowboard, really, really good for the advanced free rider, something rocking a lot of natural terrain and powder or somebody doing snowboarder cross.
What you're looking at here is it has the same core as the Vapor snowboard. It's an aluminum honeycomb, same technology that's used in Fighter helicopter blades. So you know how it works in the snowboard. From there, you still have the engineered grain direction running underneath the snowboard binding positions which is going to promote energy from the track out to the edge. This is the only snowboard that features a smooth ride technology because of how aggressive the snowboard handles. They want to give you a little extra dampening, a little extra suspension and they include these softer pads right underneath where the toe and heel of the snowboard binding go.
From there you've got a pretty beefy slant wall. Obviously that's going to give you that stiff flex that the snowboard is known for. You do have stainless steel edges on this one running all the way around. And basically that's to keep it from rusting. It's going to hold an edge a lot longer. It does have the pressure distribution edge which will bump out the edge ever so slightly underneath the snowboard binding positions giving you two extra points of contact. Really holds an edge good on ice. Definitely you would climb a pipe wall pretty easily.
From there, you've got their sintered N20 base. Extremely fast and definitely comes from the factory with finish better than any other company out there. Just impregnated with wax that will last for a while after you get it, but then the more you wax it the faster it gets. It does have the infinite ride process built into it. They over build the snowboard, sticking a machine that stimulates about three years of usage. So, definitely maintain its flights throughout the life of the snowboard.
Finally to round it all up, Pininfarina did the graphics on this one. They are definitely known more for like their Ferrari design stuff like that. It's actually automotive paint that they put on this. It definitely has the nicest paint finish that I've seen on a snowboard to date. Yeah Burton T6 snowboard: You have been riding for a while, looking for a super aggressive free ride snowboard, this is the top one I got in the shop.
You will be fine. I used to use the T6 regular width with a beefier toe cap and never had any toe drag. I actually prefer the narrower version of the board... This one is not quite as nimble edge to edge. On the other hand it offers an incredible amount of displacement at minimal weight. Probably ideal for Snowcat skiing or side country after a huge dumping.
Ride safe amigo.
