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. It is still mainly a beginner to an intermediate board so it’s not really factoring in higher speeds in the construction.
Uneven Terrain: Burton’s always really good at handling the 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 wavy 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 uncommon 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.
