Reviewer Alex

"Which board has the highest limits on every terrain? Push and enjoy it to the max everywhere. Adrenaline comes from sharp long carves till blinding amounts of fresh snow in the woods. All-mountain snowboards should be able to handle it all."

To all my reviews

 

So versatile, fantastic


The Burton Mystery is is the predecessor of the Burton Custom Mystery and absolutely different! Finally I got my hands on the Burton Mystery, a directional top end camber board. Missed out on it several times, but then it tastes even better. Not kidding, my expectations of the Burton Mystery were high and at the same time I was curious for its qualities. A snowboard this expensive should be good, right? Well, it is. Especially in all conditions on groomers. The edge hold feels unlimited and very light at the same time. Pricewise it might be compareable with the old Burton Vapor but the Mystery is totally different in performance. The Burton Mystery is definetely more playful and effortless. Very versatile for all conditions on piste, including fresh snow with a bottom, the Mystery gets my full 5 stars.

Energy in, reward out, limited to terrain

Don't ask me how it is done, but once you go slower the Mystery is more playful and forgiving. Like it has more flex suddenly. Then when speeding up, it feels light as it is plus stiffer. At no time it feels like the edge won't hold. And a lightweighted snowboard like this switches edges without effort and is still very precise. More energy in your boarding means the board will reward you with more responsive and stability speed. Very nice. Then checking how far I could push the Mystery in powder, the limit was very obvious. Steep slopes aren no problem, gravitation will do it. When the slope flattens out, you need an amazing rear leg to keep it up. Don't take the Mystery for deep powder or through a slightly frozen toplayer, it will dive mercilessly. Knowing the limits, ride the Mystery on the terrain where it belongs, groomers, a bit of side country and go slow or fast. Both is comfortable.

Burton about the Mystery

"Lofty science meets laboratory madness in Burton’s lightest weight deck to date. Fusing together a mysterious cocktail of carbon and space age design, the brainchild of Craig’s Proto Facility now has three years of technological tweaking and tinkering integrated into its very core. High-tech micro-milled ingredients and a precise material matrix increases speed, adds amplitude, and reduces fatigue for a board so light it literally hovers down the mountain. NEW Dual Guard Rails blend the latest in dampening with the ultimate in durability. That’s public knowledge. The rest is officially top secret but we can verify that the ride is snappy, surfy and one that Craig himself would be proud to put his name on.", says Burton. This all-mountain snowboard is top end. Lightweighted, but the ride is cool and tough.

Salomon Reserve: for more floatation and nice carve on piste.
Nitro Pantera: all-mountain tank, very stiff camber board.
Nitro Ultimate: compareable in performance.
