it makes me "feel good" all the time!
I've been riding since 95 and loving it. I tend to really beat stuff up so unfortunately tend to buy mens gear while i wait for the women's stuff to get stepped up in durability. still waiting......... :D
it makes me "feel good" all the time!
these fit great and are super comfy thanks to the two way hinges at the temples. they are total eye candy :D they also happen to be perfect for when the snow is really bright but the sun isnt and you need protection from the bright white but cant stand amber lenses.
I have these bindings paired with the 2012 flying V feelgood. If you are looking at getting new EST bindings to go with your new burton board this is a great pair and it WILL change how your board feels in a GOOD way. I live next to a resort so i beat my stuff up from riding a lot and these are fantastic all around bindings for crusin' riding pow or the park. i got the black but FYI ALL THE GRAPHICS ON THE BLACK BINDINGS ARE ACTUALLY GOLD!!!! lucky for me this don't honey badger don't give a sh*t :)
WOW what a great board! the flying v tech behind it makes it super playful and perfect for intermediate riders looking to learn how to really ride with your whole body and for advanced riders that want the freedom to go wherever they want and have a board that really can do it all even some of those tricks in the park they KNOW they are to old for. I have seen a lot of reviews by other girls saying that this board is great for park and nothing else.... well its not a park board it really is an all mountain board. My riding partner (my hubby) is a former pro GS/BX racer and got the sherlock flying V and rips it up with that thing everywhere BUT in the park. This board may take a run or two to get used to but once you figure it out its just plain playful and snappy and don't EVER worry about catching an edge on cat tracks or when landing. The biggest thing i think this board will teach someone is to keep your nose pointed down hill and to be ok with the speeds you are going to be reaching on this thing :D It does NOT like it when you feel like you need to speed check constantly (skips and throws you on your butt). I got to ride it in about a foot of fresh yesterday at my home mountains and wow does this thing ever float! OK, so bottom line: NOT for beginners, great all mountain board, super lively and poppy, OH and one more thing i have the 155 and this thing is blue fading to bright pink not anything like the "purple" color in the pic... i like it better in person its a super attractive board! I also paired it with the Burton Scribe EST Snowboard Binding for a super chill playful feel (completely different from my trad. camber Arbor Koa Element with stiff bindings) and they are a great match! I have not ridden this board without the EST bindings so i cannot comment no how it feels with other or older bindings but i did notice an amazing closeness with the board thanks to them.
This watch is super durable and the most comfortable watch you could ever ask for. The band feels more like silk then nylon.... instant break-in so it doesn't sit funny after you adjust it or for the first week or so. i have worn this in the shower, washing my dogs, hiking through the Wasatch mountains, and lots and lots of snowboarding. Low temps are not a problem (it was -8 here this morning!!) and again i have to say this is a great looking/fitting/functioning watch! (i have the black/neon color way) plan to be on the bike or SUP all summer so i'll post an update.
this is my um...... i think 3rd "bullet tool" (we like to call it the magic bullet). this thing has saved my ass more time then i can count! what a great tool! the awesome ratcheting and leverage you get from it keeps my former bike mechanic/board tuner hubby happy in a small size and for a small price! the only reason i have ever had to buy a new one was either because TSA decided i could take apart an airplane with it and took all the bits or because i just lost the bits. So basically dont ever try to check this thing on an airplane and it'll last you a lifetime!
So whats not to like about these boots? The color is exactly what you see in the pic (i got the blue/gold/black), the liners are so comfy, and it is a super warm boot. Its ultra low profile makes your feet look a normal size to :) Right now i have a pair of DC judge boa boots also. these 32's are super soft and perfect for park riding and all around crusin' if thats what your into.... my judges (mens boots) are way more appropriate for riding ultra fast or extra support in some crazy deep pow (thanks j. hole). these boots are way softer then the scale says (5 out of 1-10) i would say more like a 3 or 2.... and they take a different ride but it is so worth it for comfort and warmth!!! i would recommend if you are in-between sizes to go up, these boots feel a little on the small size (like a half size) and I'm sure that will change when they pack out more. i'll post with an update on durability in a month after i have a couple more weeks on them. ***UPDATE*** i have put 30 or so days on these suckers since i reviewed them and i have got to say they hold up great and are like slippers and super easy to get around in but they are ultra soft boots. the laces do break quick and i am almost through the back pair they came with but thats the biggest complaint i have!
its like they were made for each other.... electric eg2.5 + bern muse = ahhhh
finally a spherical goggle that fits with a bern visor helmet! i have the women's bern muse audio helmet and i swear these were made for it. something other then the scott I O/S goggles have come along and brought great fit, WAY better styling and a slightly smaller size! i have tried the smith I O/S goggles and these are way better.... the amount you can see peripherally is just AWESOME. phenomenal clarity and depth perception EVEN when in flat light flying over some rollers and kickers. snap them up before they are all gone!
these fit great, look great and work great..... unless its under 10. i have used these for about a month straight (5+ days a week on the mountain) and they have been great for resort riding in 10 to 45 degree weather BUT they get really warm if its over 35 and they are nowhere NEAR the protection needed for backcountry or anything under the 10/15 mark. on the plus side i almost never have to take them off because how articulated and thin they are... i would call them a bit of a glorified leather pipe glove.... and they look like that to. i am a girl and have pretty normal sized hands and i got the medium and they fit great. great buy for someone who won't have their hands in the snow a lot or is a skier.
I live and ride in Park City Utah. Spend a good amount of time on the mountain 5 days a week, sometimes more. I hate wearing lots of layers so i always go for insulated everything. I like a baggier fit so i can move around and be comfortable. Needless to say i was extremely happy when i found these, all the 686 stuff i have bought in the past has been very well made and fit true to the size chart (or maybe a little bigger). I am 5'8, 175, and a size 10. I am very muscular so i usually buy guys pants/jackets/boots/boards/bindings but was really happy when i got these and tried them on! i wear a size 10 in levi's jeans (a little on the looser side). I got these in the black (nicely textured and a true matte black and a great had to the fabric) in the XL and they can NOT be worn without a belt they are so big. This past weekend i went to put them on and realized the crotch had ripped! I have put about 20 days on them (all this year) and was really hoping they would hold up better! also the elastic on the gaiter cuff has ripped on one of the legs. Basically these are great pants if you are a christmas/spring break rider but NOT if you are a 100+ day rider like the description states :( still a well fitting, good looking, and functioning product just not made for serious abuse. back to man pants for me!
