I'm 190 pounds and about 10 days on the Genesis so far with no issues,and bailing is half my game. Only thing that seems sketchy is the flimsy highback, which I dont see how a heavier rider could break. I could see one possibly breaking if you somehow snagged your pant leg in-between the two highbacks and yanked hard, but with Burton's amazing customer service I dont see that as a concern.
do you hit 40 ft jumps? or drop 30 ft cliffs? not to sound dickish (cuz that kinda does... stAN DARSH! ) but at 190 there are alot of bindings you could break doing shit like that.... and yea those heelcups are seriously cored out. super cereal. jus sayin
