Burton Blender Review And Buying Advice

Burton Blender 2013 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Blender is a very park friendly/catch free boardThe Burton Blender’s rocker is more flat between the feet than other Burton V-Rocker boards.  It also has a spoon like nose and tail that makes for a catch free park friendly ride.  For 2012 and 2013 Burton added a lengthened contact point to compensate for the lack of edge hold a spooned nose can create.  This is a pretty fun good conditions ride.

The Burton Blender is still missing that extra something to keep you in control when the snow gets hard so only buy this if you ride in good conditions or don’t mind a lack of edge hold. The Blender is really at home in the jib park but not the best when it comes to riding the mountain unless you choose to jib around everywhere. There is some spring from the rocker but the Blender doesn’t yet match the pop some of the other Burton Freestyle boards.  It’s more of a smooth ride that can handle kinked rails and big jibs. All in all the Burton Blender is a fun forgiving park ride. The 2013 Burton Blender has a little bump in the edge hold.  Burton has the smallest extension of the edge out of those that extend.  With the new overbite edge tech it’s still the smallest.  It performs better than the old frostbite edges but it only took the board from the poor side of average to the good side of average.  The 2013 is definitely the call over all other models but it’s still mainly a good conditions ride.
