Best Snowboard Brand

I was recently trying to find the same information. Everyone says Burton is the best but I really think it is all up to what you believe and what you ride. So for me K2 and Ride are the best. I did find a nice site though that talks about a whole bunch of different brands. It was here. This helped me a lot I was doing a paper so it has a lot of keys facts. Hope it helps.

Union may try to make the best bindings but it doesn't mean they make the best. All because a company directs all its resources toward one product line doesn't mean it results in the best. Larger companies probably have more resources and larger r&d budgets.

Kemper's been out of business for quite some time now... I own a '95 Freestyle and some late 90's bindings with aluminium heelcups. VERY well built board back then.

And yet they cant make a toe strap that fits on boots other then thirtytwo's while providing comfort and secure fit? hmmm...

as far as boards I've actually owned, omatic was the worst. Even their top of the line "awesome" was cheap. The so called "sintered" base was really a really poor material that gouged easily and dried out after one day riding. The top sheet started delaming after a week of light groomer riding. It actually rode great, but even a 1 year warranty was really pushing it on those things

lj79615 i currently ride burton board/bindings and just ordered a new burton set up
good quality in my exp, customer service/warranty good also
not going to lie i also like all of their marketing and such
even my burton outerwear seems to last longer than my other gear

i will keep buying burton until i get crappy product or service, unless another company just has something i cant live without

You sir are correct. I think every board I had was a different brand. I've had 8. Some brands I rode don't exist anymore lol

To answer OP. I've always heard Ride, Lib, Burton were good quality. I've had a Burton and liked it. I ride Burton boots and bindings usually. I've had and currently have Forum bindings as well. Ride/Preston bindings have always been good as well.
