I don't have a single complaint with this pump. It's very lightweight, has a trigger for controlled inflation, supports 12g threaded/non-threaded cartridges, and 16g threaded cartridges. It has openings for Shraeder and Presta, and will inflate your tire in seconds.
Of the 10 or so cartridges I've used in this pump, I've never experienced any air leakage like another reviewer mentioned. The pump and cartridges are worth every penny for me... less hassle pumping up your tire and more time riding.
I use the Serfas CO2 16gram cartridges and I get about 40psi with my 26" MTB tires, so make sure you have a couple cartridges with you.
I looove these cartridges, they are worth every penny. There is nothing like getting a flat at the least expected moment, then spending the next 5 minutes vigorously pumping up your tube. Screw the cartridge in and wham, you've got enough air to finish off your ride.
I've went through a handful of these cartridges and they work every time. The specs are right on, they get my 26" MTB tires up to about 40psi every time.
Combine with the Serfas Air Pod CO2 pump for controlled inflation so you can dial it in perfectly.
I'm pretty pleased with the Burton 420 Kit, atleast for the price. It certainly performs the function it was intended for well. Small and portable, everything I need for the perfect ride is always with me... the spice, piece, and flame all fit, with a pokey-stabby for that next session.
I do have my gripes though. It was smaller than I originally thought, which is only a slight drawback and doesn't effect my review ranking at all. The height of the kit is slightly taller (by maybe half an inch?) than a full size Bic lighter.
Opening the spice compartment is also a little 'sticky', and not from the goo. ;) It can be really hard to open sometimes and if you aren't careful, your spice could go flying once it opens abruptly. As long as you are careful opening it and know where on the lid it gets stuck, this wont happen... but be careful when you hand it over to your buddy to load up.
I'm sure if I took a small file to the inner part of the lid where it is catching this could be easily resolved, but it's not enough of a hassle that I've went that far yet.
I'm a bit new to snowboarding and had only ridden two other boards prior to this one... but let me say, once I hit the slopes with this board, I noticed an immediate difference.
This board handles like you think a board should. It turns when and how you'd expect, quick and painless, and does really well at higher speeds.
I was up at Brighton last night and it handled spectacular once the temperatures dropped and everything got icy, it has a nice grabby edge.
I cant wait to get this thing into some pow, but I hear it does just as great.
These boots are amazing! I don't have a lot of room for comparison as I only wore two pair of rental boots prior to purchasing these... but let me do say they fit amazing out of the box, without even being broken in.
I read a lot about how when buying riding equipment to not skimp on your boots, and how finding the perfect fitting boot can be a real pain. Let me tell you, like everyone else, these suckers fit great and you can adjust them quickly and easily through ought the day for that all day comfort.
Two of my friends who have boarded for several seasons commented on them and are quite jealous. I highly recommend these boots to anyone looking for a high quality comfortable boot.
