Burton Ripcord 2014 Review by The Good Ride
The Burton Ripcord is going to be better than renting a board for those that see a lot of soft snow and have a lot of powder days. It’s got a reasonable price a taper in the tail so it floats better, catch-free ride and an all-around easy ride. It’s a good board to learn how to ride powder in.
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.
On Snow Feel: V-Rocker is loose and playful but it’s not terribly easy to one foot and flat base. The good news is it’s also hard to catch an edge.
Powder: This is one of the best powder boards you can get for the price and despite it’s slower base it’s going to stay afloat in the deep stuff. If you are learning in an area that has thick deep powder often this isn’t a bad choice.
Turn Initiation and Carving: A hard carving board this is not. It’s all about setting you up to turn. It’s easy, edge to edge and that is all that matters.
Speed: Chattery at speed. Good
Uneven Terrain: Very easy in the crowded bumpy snow.
Edge Hold: Not really there for harder snow so stay away from this if you see hard to icy snow often. It will be tough to learn with. If you mainly see soft snow it will be fine.
Flex: Very soft easy flex.
Switch: It’s ok but with the 1″ set back and tapered tail it’s not perfect either way. It’s better to get directional riding down.
Jibbing: It’s so soft that it’s not bad in the jib park.
Pipe: Not a good pipe board.
Jumps: There is decent spring between the feet.
