Burton Lipstick 2016 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride
The Burton Lipstick is another V-Rocker board that is a good friend in most places in the park. The V-Rocker and Twin shape make the lipstick very forgiving anywhere in the park.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
All in all the Lipstick performs really well in good conditions but we need a little more when it comes to edge hold…..even for a park board.
On Snow Feel: The Flat top ride feels like it’s in between flat to rocker and continuous rocker. There is more stability between the feet than V-Rocker and Flying V-Rocker but it doesn’t have the 100% stable feel like many flat-rocker profiles we have ridden. It’s not any less forgiving than V-Rocker or Flying V-Rocker either. It’s a butter machine that can also ride the mountain in a somewhat decent fashion.
Powder: Easy float in powder for a twin with flat to rocker and the board wants to stay up.
Turn Initiation and Carving: Burton’s flat top isn’t that impressive when it comes to getting the board edge to edge with a lot of springy fun that many of the other Burton Camber profiles do. It’s easy to turn and that’s about it. This isn’t really a carving board either.
Speed: Medium speeds are acceptable and after that, it can get a little chattery.
Uneven Terrain: Burton’s always great with uneven terrain and this is fine at the end of the day bumps that can form on groomers.
Edge Hold: The only weakness is the 1/2mm extension of the edge at each binding just doesn’t provide enough edge hold. We’d like to see a little more because some competitors seem to handle better in icy conditions and in the pipe.
Flex: The spoon-like nose/tail makes for an even more forgiving ride than many rocker boards and it’s just fun to butter/press/play around.
Switch: Same either way.
Jibbing: Not a bad jibber board for its length.
Pipe: Not really a good pipe board due to the lack of carving ability and edge hold.
Jumps: Middle ground pop that is acceptable for most that prefer stability over pop. Easy approach to the kicker and a pretty forgiving catch free landing.
Burton Lipstick Past Reviews
Aside from a few minor refinements the 2013 Burton Lip Stick is pretty close to the 2012.
For 2012 Burton changed up the core to make it a little lighter and it fits the fem specific shape better than the old core. So if you ride in good conditions and love the jib/jump park the Lipstick is a great choice.
