Ride Burnout

Stable and responsive with super pop, this wasn’t the board most of us expected Ride to submit for testing, but it still took home a Good Wood. The Burnout was deemed a strong choice for a jump-dominant board. It’s not the best jib deck due to the stiffer flex, but was called “the best carver in the fleet” and recommended as “a solid choice for riders who hit big jumps often.” Especially with speed, it railed turns and didn’t wash out easily. Testers reported “landing backseat was no problem” and said it required extra effort to hold presses but that the rigidity was comforting when touching down from big airs. One tester said it was “super responsive once you apply the necessary power to engage the aggressive flex.” Twin Hybrid Camber provides a winning combination of energy to really drive it into slopes and pop high (then lock into occasional board slides), plus the upward lift needed to surf slush without wearing out the legs. Since the tips rise gradually, toe-to-heel transitions were smooth, and all agreed it handled bumpy, chundery patches with ease. East Coasters liked the camber for their far-too-common granular hardpack conditions, and testers from all over were stoked to crush not only park laps but also sidehits outside the jump lines.

Length (cm) – Sidecut Radius (m) – Waist Width (cm)

149 – 7.7 – 25.0
152 – 7.8 – 25.1
154W – 7.9 – 26.0
155 – 7.9 – 25.2
157W – 8.0 – 26.2
158 – 8.0 – 25.3
160 – 7.8 – 25.4
161W – 8.2 – 26.3

Flex: 6/10

Camber: Twin hybrid camber (Camber in the center with mellow rocker toward the tips.)

(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of
the board’s flex.)

(Sidecut Radius: Assuming a board arced the tightest turn possible to make a complete circle, the sidecut radius would be the distance between the direct center of that circle and its rim, in meters. A board with a deeper sidecut would have a smaller radius and would generally make tighter turns. As the radius number increases, a board can be expected to make wider turns. Multiple numbers on the same length board means the radius is blended.)

Good Wood 2017 Presented by evo.com

With hundreds of snowboards out there, how do you pick the best deck perfectly suited to the way you ride? Drop into our 2016-2017 Good Wood Board Test for the winning snowboards of the season. Our 30 unique testers spent eight days riding and rating more than 300 boards at Carinthia Parks of Mount Snow, Vermont, and the pistes and glades of Aspen Mountain, Colorado, and came to the consensus that these are the best boards. Each tester rides differently, so there's something to be said when a board stokes all who tried it. We’ve done away with the old price groupings and instead highlighted the two top-scoring boards in each category with the lowest prices and awarded them “Bang for your Buck” badges of approval. Now in its 18th year, our TransWorld SNOWboarding Good Wood test is the longest running and most prestigious board test on the planet.

How The Boards Are Scored

Shortly after shredding laps on each board, our testers input scores for different characteristics that measure each deck on a sliding scale. The Park and All-Mountain scorecards each have different criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of each snowboard. We don't cut the boards open and examine the details, but the crew may have broken a deck or two… Go on, dive into the results and see all the winners.
