Past Season Product
I'm here at The House. I'm here to talk about the Burton Feelgood ICS snowboard. It was called ICS up through 2008, when it was invented. The '09 stuff is gonna be called "The Channel". Keep that in mind when you're looking at the snowboards. The snowboard bindings are always going to be the EST snowboard bindings. Biggest thing about these snowboards is that it has a single track. This replaces the older inserts on the snowboard. This provides you with pretty much an infinite stance width adjustment as well as angle. It's also only two bolts so it's much easier to put on, take off, or adjust.
Because of that, the snowboard bindings, when you're actually don't have any hard plastic underneath, with the exception on the bridge. All the material in the base is dampening material. So it gives you a lot more cushion, but then because there's no hard plastic it gives you better snowboard feel and it doesn't create any dead spots in the snowboard so far as the flex goes.
Another thing that's cool, on the '08s, you can actually undo two screws, and the whole baseplate will pop out so you can ride directly on top of the snowboard. For '09 they're going to be doing cant beds, shorter shred beads, and a number of other things with this system. So it is really versatile and can be tuned to different rider's needs.
Another huge advantage is if you're going to the park you can ride the snowboard more centered out and if you're gonna go up to the top of the mountain to jump into some powder. You can just reach down, do the two screws and slide it back, while you foots still in there. This gives a little better nose and a little better float in the powder. That's pretty much the best thing about it. Definitely gonna be seeing a lot of the Burton snowboards from here on out.
Alright, one other feature of ETS/ICS or channel combo is that the little tab on the bottom of the snowboard bindings goes into the track. That gives you very accurate angle adjustments through this little window and width adjustments with another so you can know exactly what the angle is, what the width is and also how it's balanced front to back on the snowboard. Makes mounting more accurate and gives you pretty much infinite options. The Burton Feelgood ICS snowboard.
