Burton Day Trader Review And Buying Advice

Burton Day Trader 2015 - 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Day Trader is an interesting little powder to borderline freeride board that could make a nice quiver pow board.

On Snow Feel:  Burton’s flat top rocker is pretty interesting.  It’s kind of in between flat to rocker and continuous rocker making it a mostly stable ride but in harder snow it can feel a little more loose between the feet than you would expect.

Powder:   So this is a little shorter than your average women’s pow stick and they are using moderate reduced sizing. It makes it an amazing board for powder for it’s size but it seems a little shy of being perfect for taller women riders.

Turn Initiation and Carving:   The Day Trader is quick edge to edge and easy anywhere you want to ride but it’s not going to be a carving board. Flat Top tech can be a bit washy and it doesn’t hold on a real carve. You get more stability between the feet than Flying V but it’s just not going to hold a carve like Flying V.

Speed: Pretty stable at speeds and not too chattery. The base is really fast so it keeps its speed in the flats.

Uneven Terrain: It’s so small size combined with Burton’s shock absorbent flex makes for a very easy board to negotiate moguls you might find on the way to a powder stash.

Edge Hold:  Not really there but this is a pow board so it’s not that big of a deal.

Flex: right there in terms of the medium side of things.  It’s flat top profile allows a little room for easy buttering.

The rest doesn’t really matter.  

I think we might of liked this board more if it came with a mellow S-Rocker profile because it would of made it a better groomer/freeride board.
