Best all mountain board
Ice, packed, or pow...it doesn't matter. I live in CO and this is the best board for any condition.

I upgraded from a 5yr old Ride Yukon. The Custom X is much more responsive and easier to control. The EST bindings make it east to get perfectly dialed in while on the mountain. You can't go wrong with the board.

I've been riding for about 6 years now and consider myself pretty good but this board will definitely take your riding to the next level. I took the custom X to Park City for some spring riding equiped with Burton EST CO2 bindings and rode it all over the mountain. It handled icy morning groomers (yes ice in Park City.. who'd a thought), afternoon slush, small kickers, double black bowls and riding switch with no problem. It's very responsive and if I pointed it straight down a steep blue/black there were a couple of times I was actually a little scared I was going so fast. The closing speed on skiers is almost dangerous. The top sheet does seem to scratch and knick a little easy but I still highly recommend this board.

Ok, so I've been riding a big mountain board for 5 years, but wanted to make the change to the Custom X because I've been really getting into riding switch. Because I'm not used to riding on multiple boards, it took me a full day to not look like a dork. Once I was used to it, I was amazed at the control the Custom X had in the carve. This board does some serious vibration damping allowing for more contact from turn to turn. I was actually able to take it out into the pow, and it cut through it while floating on top with little effort. Bottom line, I am very impressed with my first impressions.

One Word: DOMINATION
This is the "One Board to Rule them All." The Burton Custom X is the sickest board on the mountain. I used to ride a Burton 7 and upgraded to a Custom X and what a difference it made. It's lighter, turns much more easily (even on crud) and is super responsive. Trust me, you won't be dissapointed if you buy this board.
