Cartels are fine. The boots I'm not so sure and I heard Nikes pack out pretty easy

Went riding again last night on my Raptor 164 with a fresh wax. I'm still in love with the board and the feel it gives me on the mountain. Again, I was blown away by the incredible edge hold on the iciest of ice and the stability at extremely high speeds. Bombing is a joy on this stick and I love the damp feeling of crud underneath the board. You can barely feel the bumps of chunder but just enough to know that this board is doing its jobs. I have them paired with Burton Cartels and Burton Rulers and I think they provide a middle ground to enjoy all parts of the mountain and perform well while hard carving as well.

Like +2. Just slapped on some of that Hertel race wax people here keep talking about. Can't wait to go try it out.

Do you guys use a stomp pad? Would it even stick? Or does the carbonium provide enough friction? Btw ups finally delivered at the end of the day. No liftopia coupon. Still super excited to ride on it!!

I do. Use the dating rubber spike pad. After 10 days it's still sticking. Use heat when you apply and make sure the surface is really clean.

carbonium does provide enough friction

For just getting off the lift... no. If getting off the lift is a problem, then this isn't the right board to have in the first place. I just jam my boot to the back of my binding, but I don't even jam it that hard. Keeping your weight centered, soft knees, and being comfortable with front foot steering are FAR more important. Using this board, you should be advanced enough to dodge falling, out of control newbs with no problem.

HOWEVER... one of my friends likes to mess around having his rear leg on the stomp pad while doing stuff around the mountain. This doesn't interest me, but if you do this kind of stuff, then I can see why a little extra traction can be valuable.

Besides... putting a stomp pad on this board feels like putting on a bumper sticker on a Porsche 911 Turbo.
