So, I'm 6'2", 250 with a size 13 boot and in the market for a new board and bindings. Would I be able to go with this board in a 162 wide or should i find something bigger? My last board was a 160 regular and the only problem i found with it was the width so...
Ben S on Nov 14, 2014
The 162 version of this Ripcord would work for you. The Waist Width is 26.1 which is for sure wider that your previous board. Most of your length decision is personal preference, and if you liked the 160ish range, stick with it. For the record, Burton suggests the 162 would be the best version of this board for you.
hi i have a size 11.5, im 5 10 and i weigh 145 lbs. First of all i am wondering if the 158 w would be good for me and also what would be a cheaper pair of bindings that would fit with this board as i am on a budget?
max s on Dec 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Max, defiantly get the wide. My son is 5'9 200 lbs and his shoe is a ten. looking at it you cant tell its a wide, its not much different and it will be easier to carve. I got the basic black burton bindings LARGE that were the cheapest and the house boots also the cheapest. the boots tie on the inside and out. Laces are the best and they don't break. wasn't pumped about the looks being white and all but when it got here it looks awesome. red white and blue, America's colors and the colors pop. I researched like crazy and board myself, can always count on burton quality even if its there cheaper line. Also the rocker seems to be the best for beginners, mad important. its for x-mas so I cant ride it yet. wish I could. good luck
I'm 6'2" 178lbs with a size 12 shoe, do I need to get the wide version?
A shopper on Nov 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would say yes. I'm 6'1" and wear size 11 boots, Burton website recommended a wide version ripcord.
what kind of bindings do you recomend for this board?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Burton Custom Snowboard Bindings would be a great match up for the Burton Ripcord Snowboard. Check out the Custom Bindings HERE:
Im 5'5, Would it be good to get a board that is 156"cm ?
Oscar B on Nov 28, 2013

I'm not at all a professional when it comes to snowboard sizing, but I think it's a bit more important to use your weight than your height. Also, depending on your experience level, a shorter board may be more appropriate than a longer one if you're still a beginner.

I'm 5'11" 175 lbs with a size 10.5 shoe. will the wide version fit me?
Justin C on Nov 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You fit within all the weight ranges of each size but fit best in the 158cm Burton Ripcord.
I'm 170 lbs and 6'...158 or 162?
Cole J on Nov 21, 2014
Most of your answer is personal preference and style of boarding you will do most. I would suggest looking at the 162.
Would a 156 (W) Burton Ripcord be the right size for someone who is 165lb's?
Tyler on Jan 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Tyler- You could go shorter but a 156cm would work. However don't go wide unless you have a 11+ foot.
