Testers' Ratings

This big potential backcountry board offers fluid and balanced support while shredding. We also love its super efficient and poppy heel for the relaunch that makes it a very versatile board. It flies over the ground.

Strength and power are the niche the excellent Flight Attendant loads and delivers in all terrain. You have to ride fully centered on the board while expanding its stance from 1 to 2 cm on either side in order to fully exploit its great stability. Maneuvering must remain centered with bearing length and lift. Please drive it centered on both feet at high speed! There is so much comfort and confidence when executing all types of maneuvers. Burton manages to offer a lot of support under its tips without giving any feeling of rigidity. There is variety in turning especially in the heel. It's rich and effective. A powerful ollie finishes the feature of this backcountry board. It is able to take all uneven terrain without flinching, while delivering fluid and dosed supports.
