Review

Boost your ridings skills this season with the 2017 Burton Feather snowboard. With its effortless feel and progression-friendly features, this board will make it easy to take the next step in snowboarding. Its forgiving Flat to Rocker profile combined with an easy-going soft flex will help you to link turns on the mountain or to try out small jumps in the park. The board’s rockered tips will ensure you will stay afloat on fresh powder.

The tapered shape and flat top make turning a breeze, while ultra-thin profile ensures a soft feel that doesn’t sacrifice on stability. Which is a good upgrade comparing to previous seasons. On snow, this board feels loose and playful. It prefers softer snow and offers supreme float on powder. Especially when you consider this board lower price. For those of us who like to learn how to ride on fresh powder but are one a budget. This is a good low-cost choice. Turning is quite easy as this board springs nicely from edge-to-edge. It’s not a dedicated carver but it will allow you to skid your turns.

When it comes to riding fast, this is not a racer. However, a snowboard like this doesn’t need to. It can pick up a bit of speed but most people won’t charge this board. On uneven terrain it absorbs bumps well but when encountering harder conditions it missed more edge hold. Overall, the 2017 Burton Feather snowboard is an accessible progression-minded deck that will help you develop the skills you need to enjoy the whole mountain. It’s a good step-up for those who are now riding second-hand boards.
