Hello - I am considering getting a Burton Custom X 158, but am torn between the 158 and the 160 size. I have been riding a 2005 Custom X that is 160 cm, do you think I will notice a difference - I am 5'11 and 165 lbs. Also - I have the Burton Driver X boots size 11, should I notice any toe drag on the 158 size?
Jason S on Dec 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I'm about the same size, 6' tall, 170 pounds, 11-12 boot size, and I am quite happy with the 156. Going shorter than your 2005 would make sense as the dynamics of the shape, weight, and weight distribution of boards have evolved significantly since then; these advances afford riders to go much smaller without sacrificing powder performance, also allowing for more airborne-rotational ability and overall maneuverability. You'll most definitely notice the difference from the older models, still great boards, just these are noticeably more nimble, sharp and capable. Also, toe overhang has been sorted out, and there shouldn't be any drag, even if the bindings are positioned perpendicular to the rails, 0'. In several feet of fresh powder, (reference- Aspen/Rocky Mountains, which is relatively soft, about 4 feet, chutes), the board did sink a small bit, even at full gas, and on this one occasion I decided to change boards to gain some more lift from extra length/volume/footprint, (stepping up to a 160 from the 156). Regardless I was still smiling, so the slight dip in performance didn't hinder the fun as I came in for a board change. Overall, the board excels nearly everywhere, from the park to medium-level backcountry, snow types found in Colorado to France to Tahoe, it's a go-to for me, I'm sure you'll enjoy it also... I'd recommend the 158. In any event, have a great and safe time out there!
1. I am 180cm tall and I have 76 kg. I have Nike lunarendor 10 US boots. Which size of snowboard I should get?
2. I am intermediate - advance snowboarder and I do not know which snowboard is better. Custom x or custom?
3. I am looking for union charger bindings what do you thing of them? Or should I get a burton ones?
Olda S on Jan 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Your setup sounds like a killer package. I've got far more time on the Custom vs the Custom X. Each has its perks and you would be very satisfied with either one.
I'm 5'9" 200lbs. I've been riding for 20+ years. I have been riding a 164 Burton Canyon (10+ years old board). It's served me well. I was looking at the Custom X. I've always been riding a board that was longer than what the typical recommendation was. I ride hard and fast. Should I consider going with a shorter board or stick with what I've been riding?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Custom X is a great board. I am 5'10" 190 so roughly the same same size as you and recently bought the 164 Custom X. More importantly, our riding styles sound similar; aggressive and fast. This board provides excellent control when riding aggressively. I know the Canyon, you probably have a large shoe size. That is something I would look into, this board is fine for me (size 11 shoe) but if you have bigger feet, you should make sure it will not drag. This board, and really most boards made in the past three years, are a huge difference from what we were riding before. The Rocker technology is not a gimmick, it actually is legit.
I am buying a snowboard for my son. He is 5 foot 8 inches 145 pounds,, wears a size 10 shoe. What size board? I am assuming medium bindings, and 10 boot. looking at the Burton boards.
Jeannie D on Nov 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend the 152 in the Custom X.
I am 177 cm tall (5' 10) and 150LBS SIZE 11 BOOTS (US size). i am recommended a 156 length board with a waist width of 253. is this correct and if so what board shall i get as the 156 only works with medium bindings? and will the waist width be a problem on this board?
ali s on Jan 5, 2014

First off, rad last name. Secondly, thanks for doing your research (seriously).

I always recommend for riders with size 11 boots to ride a board with a waist width of at least 25.8cm UNLESS their boots feature Shrinkage Footprint Reduction technology (tech that reduces the sole imprint by a full size).

If you have a size 11 boot that features Shrinkage Footprint Reduction technology you could ride the 156cm Burton Custom X Snowboard because the weight range is 135-175 lbs.

If your size 11 boots do not feature Shrinkage Footprint Reduction technology I would suggest getting the 159cm Burton Custom X Wide Snowboard because the 25.8 waist width will better accommodate your boot size and you fit within the 145-185 lbs. weight range.

Riding a beautful antique custom from 1999/2000 I think, CFX bindings... I can't sure if its 160, 162, 164, its the model with the biker graphic (maybe someone out there knows). Either way its time to replace this little beauty and custom X is my choice I just can't decide on length. I'm 6ft tall and about 180lbs. I almost purchased a 164 thinking it would be more stable charging the groomers and more buoyant in the deep stuff. Looking for some guidance on the ideal length for a free rider over freestyle rider? Thanks
bishop on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, its the. 160. I retired mine 3 years ago , had plenty of adventures on that board including seasons at Lake Louise and Squaw Valley. It now has pride of place mounted on the wall in my kitchen. I replaced it with à Custom X 160 and it will charge if you up for it! I'm 5ft 10" ,160lbs , US size 11 Burton Rulers Cartel bindings. Please go for the 164, enjoy! Cheers Brett
Will the burton custom x 2014 boards be on stock again?

I'm looking to buy the 159 wide custom X. I am also looking to buy the 2014 flow nx2 se snowboard bindings. Are these two compatable with each other?
Conner B on Sep 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they should be compatible. Burton ICS Channel boards will work with any other ICS compatible bindings. The Flow NX2 SE Bindings are Indeed Burton ICS Compatible. So you should have no problems.
I recently received a 2014 burton custom x 156 with a pair of the large genesis est bindings and size 10 1/2 burton ions for my birthday. After receiving everything and setting my board up (15,-15) and doing some research on my own I noticed that the burton website calls for medium bindings on a 156 board. So my question is will the large genesis bindings be okay on my board or will it create to much toe and heel drag?
Matt W on Sep 2, 2014

The size large Gensis Snowboard Bindings will work great for your size 10.5 Burton Ion Boots and 156cm Burton Custom X Snowboard! That is an amazing set up!!!!
IM 5'7" and I ride a 155 burton a pretty good rider.what size would best fit me? Also is this board a good trick board?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: How much do you weigh?

The Burton Custom X is an excellent trick board.
Is this board wide enough for a size 11 boot or am I going to have too much toe and heel? I've noticed Burton doesn't list a mid wide board. Am I missing something?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Burton does make a 2014 Burton Custom X Wide Snowboard. If you have size 11 boots you will most definitely need to ride the Custom X in the wide option. I personally ride the 164cm Burton Custom X Wide with size 11 Burton SLX Boots - It's the best set up I've ever had.

We have the 2014 Burton Custom X 159cm and 162cm in stock HERE -

How does this board compare to a Ride DH board?
David N on Jan 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello David,

Hi David,

Out of any board that would be comparable to the Ride DH Snowboard it would be the Burton Custom X.

Both boards are very powerful, quick edge to edge, and offer incredible amounts of pop. The only big difference is that the Custom X has a slightly setback stance whereas the Ride DH Snowboard is a True Twin with a centered stance.

The Custom X is a little more freeride friendly...
Why does the Burton board finder recommend a 155cm board for 5'10" 190Lbs., but all the charts say 160cm +/-??
Len M on Dec 6, 2013

That's a good question. It may have to do with the ability selections (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert) you made in combination with the board's Terrain, Speed, and Personality settings. Overall all I'd ride a board between 155cm-160cm.

If you're looking into the Burton Custom X Snowboard get the 158cm size.
Custom X vs. Process Flying V for a POW day? Which will be better?
Brett on Dec 2, 2013

As much as I love the Burton Custom X Snowboard, I'd have to say that the Burton Process Flying V would be better in powder because of it's softer flex and Flying V profile shape.
is this included in the 70 percent off sale?
Shane B on Nov 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No the Custom X will not be discounted as it is a new 2014 model.
6 Foot 2 Inches - 185 LBS; 10 years of riding experience. 162W sufficient?
David C on Oct 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: If you have size 10.5 boots or smaller you could ride any Burton Custom X between 158cm-164cm.

If you have size 11+ boots or larger you could ride any Burton Custom X Wide between 159cm-164cm.

Over all if you have 10.5 or smaller I'd go with the 158cm but if you have size 11 or larger go with the 159cm Wide.
Looking at a Custom X...10.5 Imperial boot, medium binding. 185lb, 5'11". 158 or 159W?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: That's a pretty good question. The Imperial boots have Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Technology which means it has a snow imprint of a size 9.5 (lucky)...I'd go with the Burton Custom X 158 (AMAZING BOARD).
Hello, I am 175cm 163BLS size 10 boots (US). I use to ride 156 length board (currently a 2010 burton custom flying v) and am considering buying a 156 Custom X.
But the burton board finder suggest me to take a 152 Custom X (97%match), which makes me hesitate.
Which size would you recommend?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2014
Hi. I am a Burton T6 159 rider (7 seasons) looking to make a change and considering the Custom X. I ride cruisers and trees with a bit of BC and no park at all. I love the confidence of the T6 at speed, and I don't want to lose that - but I still would like something a little more fun and the Custom X may be that for me. I hear that some of these boards (like the Antler) can get splashy at speed or on hard pack. I guess I want a slightly more forgiving T6 knowing that boards have improved a ton since 2006, and maybe an inch or 2 shorter.

So I guess I am asking for board recommendations and associated sizes. I am 5'8", 160lbs, 9shoe - dont ride goofy or switch much. What do you think?
Cash Nugent on Jan 21, 2014
