Reviewer Steef

"In powder I want float and a bit of flex. I don't mind to work hard for a perfect powder run, as long as it pays off. Blue skies, bottomless powder describes paradise. Looking for adventure sometimes brings me to the edge."

To all my reviews

 

Good freeride capacities


Burton Dump Truck (tested length: 163 cm) is no beginners board. Too stiff, too hard to manoeuvre easily if you don't know how to handle it and to put energy in it on the right way. That is the case on (bumpy) groomers. But on flat groomers the Burton Dump Truck is grippy and with much control at high speed. In powder and in disordered terrain it's a pleasure to ride the Dump Truck and it manoeuvres quickly. A very good freeride board overall.

Rage hard

The Burton Dump Truck board invites you to attack the mountain. Raging down, hammer it through turns at high speed, or short shifting through powder in the forrest. That is what it likes and does best. Because of the camber you can use the energy of the board in a nice way without getting punished. On bumpy hard pack though, you might not feel that comfortable because there is not much flex in the Dump Truck. A 4 star rating for the Burton Dump Truck for me.

Burton about the Dump Truck

"For the deepest days and trickiest lines, move mountains with the ultimate in float and freeride versatility.", says Burton.
I can agree with that.
