2013 Burton Custom X

Hey guys

So last year i decided to get a NS proto CT 157 And pair it wit h a couple of malavita's.. The board did perform amazing , but must admit it dont suit my style of riding..

So iv'e benn looking at my local shop overhere in little old Denmark, which mainly runs burton and Flow, and kinda got hooked on the Custom X. .

Im currently 190-200 Lbs and around 6.1. but wanna lose a little but not in the hight ^^..

I have a Flow infinite which was my second board which is a 163 and the custom runs 160 and 164 so is it just the 164 ?.

Thinking of pairing it with cartels ?..

Hope you could help me with sizing. .

im riding around europe and goes in the pow when its there otherwise just racing around, and the park bit is just some smaller kickers. .

/Cheers Snoopy

I ride the Custom X's stiffer brother the T7, and I weigh approx 165 and ride a 159. It feels just right. I'm also 5'7" for what it's worth. Methinks the 164 would be just right.

What do you mean by suits your riding style? The custom X is a hard charging board, would be good for bombing groomers and flying around powder and trees off piste...

I mean that i didn't really got into the hole all mtn/freestyle thing as much as i hoped, and bombing down the mountain on the proto can be a interesting experience :-D. .

Snoop,

I have a 2012 CX 160 with Cartel Bindings. I believe the setup is a perfect match. I don't feel like the board is as stiff as most people say it is. But the length is a little long in my opinion for me. I am 5'9 175 lbs. This could be preference though.

I had the 164. I'm taller but lighter than you.

Think of it this way: 160 for more freestyle or 164 for more float in pow. Both will carve like a madman

I say the 160

If you only look at the sizing chart 160 runs 155-195 and the 164 runs 170 - 210 . How does the X handle pow ?

It's a stiff cambered board so not pow oriented, you'll need to push the bindings back.

ok. .

The thing is that almost 90-95% of the time we been on holidays we missed the fresh pow and just teared up the groomers. .

And the pow we seen aint chest deep ^^

However if theres pow were out in it :-D..

The X sounds like its not the right choice ?..That said i didn't read any negative about it. .

I kinda wanna support our local show if he can give some discount ^^. As i wrote flow/burton but if theres one obvious that im missing let me know . .

/Cheers

If you are mostly going to ride hard packed snow and do some jumps you will definitely like the custom x. Its It's good if you are realistic and admit that you may not see that much powder better not buy a board specifically for it.
