Burton Process Flying V - 2012

http://www.snowboard-review.com/images/brands/burton/logo/burton_logo.gif

The Process Flying V is a medium/soft directional twin freestyle snowboard absolutely loaded with features giving it all-mountain capability. The Flying V profile is accompanied with Frostbite edges and triaxial glass for improved edge hold and Jumper Cables (Carbon stringers to you and I) in the cambered tail for extra pop as well as Burton’s Smooth Ride dampening system to mellow out an potentially bone shaking chunder.

Manufacturer's Description:

Riding the Process Flying V™ is like eating your favorite food. It’s got all the ingredients√≥the tasty traction of Frostbite Edges, succulent cushioning of Smooth Ride™, and the pop of Jumper Cables. And now it’s even more capable with the camber/rocker combo of Flying V to complement its soft, well-rounded palate. The only difference is that this board will be just as good on day 100 as it was on day one thanks to Infinite Ride™, whereas the food will get gross in less than a week.

Hello!

I’m planning to buy this board, but I’m not sure on what size I should go… 157 or 155

I’m 5’ 10” 167 lbs and I wear burton moto boots 11us with shrinkage tech it’s like 10us so I think that the waist width isn’t a problem at all.. 251 or 252mm will be good… please tell me if I’m wrong!

I ride mostly groomers, some little jumps, a bit of pow if is available, and sometimes like to speed.

Any help will be appreciated!

Excuse me for my english it’s pretty bad.

Thank you!!!

About me:  6’, 200 lbs, size 12 boots.  Spend most of my time bombing runs and playing on natural terrain with the occasional trip to the park.  Intermediate skill level.

Board setup:  Picked up the 162.  The mid-wide width is sufficient for my big feet.  Rode with Cartel EST bindings.

Weight: seems light, at least compared to my old 2003 Custom.

Flex:  Pretty damn soft, which is what I was looking for.  I wanted something more playful for the smaller East Coast mountains.  Fun to butter around the mountain.  It’s softer in the nose and stiffer in the tail for a little extra pop.

Edge hold: This took some serious getting used to since I usually ride camber.  My first few runs I regretted my purchase, but I eventually got the hang of it.  The frostbite edges do an OK job, but nothing to write home about.  It didn’t completely wash out on ice, but it sure wasn’t fun.  I wouldn’t take this board out on early season icy days.

Pop: surprisingly good for such a soft rocker board.  I had no problem generating my own air on some little natural rollers.

Switch:  felt fine, though I don’t spend much time riding switch so take this with a grain of salt.

Stability:  Once I got used to the Flying-V profile, I had no problem bombing down steeps with this board.  Handled flat-basing just fine.  Not very damp though, so beware on powder days once everything gets tracked out.

Float:  Awesome!  I set my bindings back a bit (which was super easy and fast thanks to the channel) and had a blast in the powder.

Overall Impression:  Jack of all trades, master of none.  Fun board to bomb groomers, butter around, and find little jumps.  A little too soft too be really considered a quiver killer in my opinion, but it’s still capable all around the mountain.  Great in pow, not on ice.
