Description: Burton T6 Snowboard

Designed for the advanced rider, the Burton T6 Snowboard for men is one of only two Burton boards that are built on the Alumafly core. Alumafly is a unique core - it is not wood, it is not composite and it is not plastic, it is aircraft grade aluminum so it is as strong as you can get, and its hexagonal cell pattern makes it lighter than anything else, being over 90% air. Stainless steel pressure distribution edges make for durability and control, for all of your wild runs. The base is sintered N2O WFO, the fastest base on the market, that will take whatever wax you prefer and hold on to it.

    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.

I got my T6 on a whim - I had an extra concert ticket that I traded with someone who worked at Burton in Vermont. He offered me any Burton board I wanted, so clearly I opted for a higher-end board that I'd never spend the money on myself. Turns out this was the best trade I've ever made. The T6 plain owns the mountains. I viewed myself as an intermediate rider, but this stick definitely has me feeling advanced. I'm confident enough to bomb down the East Coast ice because the T6 holds its edge and stays stable no matter how fast I'm going. I also get a little stiffy every time I take it into the glades for some powder runs because of how smoothly it floats, and how responsive it is. I just think left and the next thing I know, I've avoided the tree I was bearing down on. I'm not a big park guy, so I can't say how it will handle kickers and rails, but it definitely conquers everything else the mountain can throw at it. I even go down moguls with my T6, and I used to avoid them like the plague when I was riding my Palmer Honey Pro. The only con I've discovered is purely cosmetic - the top sheet on my board has a bunch of spider-vein-cracks. I don't know whether it's from normal wear and tear or getting beat up a bit in the glades, but she's just not as pretty as she was when I first got her. If you've got the money and you're looking to ride the best, don't think twice. The T6 is just what the doctor ordered

Love it
I've enjoyed this board, been quite a lot of fun to use in NZ and AU. It's stiff and I've found it quite responsive. I got a 'damaged' version, the sticker was slightly out of place. Nil damage since, and it's traveled a bit. Amazingly nil damage. Except when I went over some very thin snow during spring in AU and scraped it like crazy but a good wax seemed to have fixed that. I'd recommend it. This season I'm tossing up on getting a Sierra board though

"Great board, but kill the flaps"
I bought this board last year and it's awesome. Feels faster than the custom X. Stiffness is about the same in my experience. Only problem (minor) is that the plastic flaps under the bindings started peeling off. No biggie overall, i just ripped them off, but initially made annoying flapping sounds while going down the mountain

Love this board
I did a lot of research before buying this board. To be honest most of the research scared me a bit. Many places said that this board will Kick Your Ass, it will buck you off or Advanced Riders only so on and so forth. So I don't consider myself an Advanced rider probably somewhere in the Intermediate range I ride about 35-40 days a year. With that said when I first strapped on the board you definately notice the stiffness before you even hit the run. It only took 2 turns to understand what this board is all about, it likes to go fast and it likes to hold an edge. I felt very comfortable bombing hills (very damp ride) carving high speed, riding powder (nice float) and taking it in the trees. If you are somewhat of a technical rider this board won't let you down and you should not be afraid of it. My only complaint is those dampening pads, they like to peel off. You'd think for as much as the board cost they would have figured out how to address the issue

Burton T6
This board is stiff and turns incredibly quick. If you want to fly down the mountain under control, give this the board a try. I bought it last year and I am very happy with it

Monster stiffy
I upgraded from a Burton Custom to the T6 and OMG it's friggin stiff! It's a powerhouse. The aluminum honeycomb design is amazingly tight and light. The board gives you a feeling like you can plow through just about any pow. Some may see the stiffness as a downside though. The board literally fights back if you don't push it hard enough and you definitely will feel it in your knees.

Most stable board eve
I got this board as an upgrade after I messed the rail on my 09 Custom-X , the T6 is noticeably faster and more stable. You can easily bomb your way down on almost all runs. If you like to ride hard and fast with the accuracy of an F16 this is your board

Board handles sweet, very solid edge control cuts into everything. Can't wait to ride powder with it. Have about 4 days so far on it. Snaps from edge to edge. Gotta give it 3 just due to the damper pads already peeling. Kind of surprised it started after day 1. I knew about it prior to purchase so bad on me. It doesn't impact riding just not the best visual. Solid board that's light weight and fun.

Burton t6
This board is every single thing that you would hope that it is. It is an absolute animal on the mountain. One of the downfalls is that the dampening pads that you see on the top sheet peel off within the first two days. Have talked to Burton and they said they would replace the board with something equal.

I've been riding all mountain for twenty years, and you just can't beat a good board with true camber

I love T6 boards. This will be my 3rd. Amazing speed and reaction. Also, they are usually double this in price (certainly in Europe anyway)

I'm really interested in buying the 162 cm T6. I'm a 6'4 guy with size 13 shoes so I'm wondering if the width would be alright for my foot size? If not, what size should I look for. Cheers.

BEST ANSWER: Hi there,
Great board; this is my 3rd and it's probably the best base I've used.
I'm just under 6' and have the 156cm, which gives a good size combo, for off-piste and on-piste, so the 162 should be about right for your height (can't comment on the weight tho').
However, I'm not so sure on the shoe size (I'm assuming that you mean a US 13 . . . I'm actually British). I guess it really depends upon how neutral your back foot is. I tend to ride about 15 degrees on the front (off neutral) and 0-5 degrees on the back. The T6 is quite a narrow waist, but I've been fine with it. My guess is, though, only being a UK size 9, that you might find yourself toe-ing out on toe-turns if you have a neutral stance and do a lot of on-piste stuff. Also, I'm assuming that, if you're getting a T6, you like the fluffy, powder more than piste; in which case, you may find yourself riding a little flatter. Might be worth comparing the width with what you're used to. It would be a shame to waste such a great board if you have to hold back on the aggression when you have some decent carving to do.
