Whether it's on the ascent or the descent, Burton's Flight Attendant is here to serve you with a comfortable and enjoyable ride when you take off into the backcountry. With a directional camber profile that puts positive camber at the back with a bit of rocker up front, testers were surprised by the Flight Attendant's twin-like feel when tackling the backcountry's natural features. But even with its freestyle leanings, the directional profile translated to ample float, response, and maneuverability across a spectrum of conditions. Testers also praised the Flight Attendant for its in-bounds feel, attributed to its medium flex pattern and the unlimited stance options made possible by Burton's Channel system.

Tested + Approved 2019 presented by evo.com

Since its inception four years ago, Tested + Approved has swiftly and proudly established itself as snowboarding's most comprehensive and bullshit-free product test. With an endless sea of gear to choose from—bindings and boots, helmets and goggles, gloves, layers, and everything in between—it's not getting any easier to know where to spend your money when everything seems to be touted as the next great innovation in performance and technology. We set out to navigate this deep sea because, like everyone, we get bummed when something fails on its word.

We start the Tested + Approved process by reaching out to brands with reputable product offerings, asking them to submit qualifying gear across an array of categories. We then distribute this gear to insightful, diehard shredders across the country with distinguished product knowledge and an astute ability to critique it. Committed to eliminating inferior items, blown out soles, busted zippers, fogged up lenses, and gimmicky tech is sifted out. What remains is a collection of the industry’s most proven products; all of it Tested + Approved.
