nah, but it doesn't look like anything special. off-white topsheet with some hand drawn liney style graphics, if i remember correctly. the base is nothing to write home about, either.

Less and the hi-back is different. I personally like them much more, I found the old back to be real annoying. Obviously a lot of people loved it though.

Love is discontinued in 2012. Keegan now rides Mr. Nice Guy. It is his board as much as Love used to be his board.

Review: 158 Burton Mr. Nice Guy 2012

Conditions:

Weather - cold, sunny and clear skies

Slopes - hard pack and ice

Park - ice

Setup:

158 Burton Mr. Nice Guy 2012 (Keegan Valaika's board - it used to be Love), Burton Cartels EST 2012 in XL/L

Mr. Nice Guy: Solid true twin regular camber and not-too-soft jibbing/freestyle board with loads of pop. On the downside it performed pretty average to poor on the hard-pack and ice - it handles speed very poorly - but you probably don't want it for that anyway.

Cartels: I was excited about trying these as many people have told me these are some of the most responsive bindings out there, loads of forward lean, etc, etc. I didn't find that to be the case with these bindings.

EST vs. Non-EST - I probably wouldn't have been able to tell you if I was riding EST or Non-EST without looking down at the bindings.

Footbed - very comfortable.

Toestrap - this is my pet hate - Burton toestraps. I think this is the worst part of this binding. IME, it doesn't work very well.
