Burton Lyric 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Lyric is an all mountain to all mountain freestyle kind of ride that is a soft all mountain cruiser but it’s not really an all mountain bomber.

On Snow Feel:  Same mostly stable flat top feel that is catch free and pretty stable between the feet. It’s great for those that want a forgiving easy to turn ride and an easy float in powder.

Powder: The board has a 1/2 inch set back for easier directional riding in powder and combined with the flat to rocker it makes for a very good powder board.

Turn Initiation and Carving: I’t easy edge to edge but not really a rewarding board for turning. It’s the kind of board that makes for consequence free turns but there is nothing satisfying about them unless you are just happy not to catch an edge learning how to turn better.

Speed:  Stable at moderate speeds but not really a bomber board.  Its still mainly a beginner to intermediate board so it’s not really factoring in higher speeds in the construction.

Uneven Terrain:  Burton’s always really good at handling bumpy terrain and this is no exception.

Edge Hold:  Burton’s Flat Top boards have a little more grip than their V-Rocker and some Flying V-Rocker boards but they still aren’t completely there when it comes to solid grip.  We’d love to see a little more of a waivy side cut in some way or another that would compensate for the tip/tail being up.

Flex:  Very soft and buttery and easy to play around with.

Switch:   Almost perfect either way due to the twin flex and twin shape if you center up the stance.

Jibbing:  Pretty easy flex combined with the flat top camber profile makes for an easy jib park board which is un-common for a board marketed as an all mountain ride.  Usually to ride the mountain well the flex has to be stiffer.  Burton made this flex softer and that makes it a better jib board.

Pipe: Not enough grip or drive wall to wall for a fun pipe board.  It’s ok if you hit it when it’s soft.

Jumps:   Mediocre spring for ollies and a nice stable approach to kickers makes this a good jump board for learning to enjoy how to get more air.
