i tried this stomp pad on my firends banana and what a difference ther was. the boot actually stayed on the pad. so i had to go and buy one. great traction. the 3 peices produce maximum tracion buy placing them where theres sapose to be traction: the toe, middle and heel instead of just the middle. Just dont forget its there when you grab you board there without a glove, it hurt.

These are hands down the best bindings i have ever ridden; Great flex, durable and the straps actually fit my boots. They are very adjustable compared to the burton missions and with alot more tech for only $20 bucks more if your not riding est. These handle all conditions well and out preform other bindings in the price catagory. They can literaly be on your street board one day and the next, be on your pow board and have top of the line performance. I wondered why Union made the toe strap the way they did and i have figured it out; so they fit 99% of the boots on the market and they are sinple. The ratchets are also very durable, haven't broke yet but what stuck me is that the ankle strap clip is huge! It fits into the pom of my hand so its very easy to clip in without clips slipping out of your finger tips. As Yoda says:May the Force be with you every where you go.

yo, my girl friend has this board and she loves it. great flex, easy to throw around and just an overall smooth ride. the base is the only flaw and its not a major one: i hot wax our boards and the wax went away from 3 days of riding (i may have not put enough was on) so then i put DaKine rub on on it and that stayed for awhile but still didnt last very long. owell like i said great board for the price.

these googles are amazing. great clearity, rarely fogs up and a really scratch resistant lense. like the other guy said the foam does squeeze a lil' bit but forms 2 ur nose over time. if your impatient like me, just take some scissors or a razor and do a lil' trimming. if you buy the polarized lens, you wont be dissappinted, you can wear them in the bright sun or take some night runs and not be blind.

this board is a great street board. great flex for pressn', good pop and low weight. the base is up to par for a street board and is NOT reccomended for resort and moutain use. if you want a great, street only board, buy this. burton missions = great combo (unless your boots dont fit them right)

my uncle has this board and he loves it. stable, tight turns and sweet speed. the only thing he doesnt like about it is that its a lil' stiff but that what you get for an all moutain board. lol. not as much pop as he would like either but then again, its a MOUTAIN board. goes nicely with the old p1.1 speed zone binders.

awesome board. nothing can come close 2 a skate banana's preformance. great pop, turns amazing, easy to press, i could go on forever. the only downside to this board is that its unstable at high speeds, so take a couple runs 2 get used 2 it and them grip it n' rip it. great combo with burton mission bindings and 32 boots.
