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

 

Nice allround board


Burton Mystery Malolo (tested at 158 cm length) is a nice lightweight board for intermediate to expert riders. Direct steering but not nervous and good for any type of terrain, the Burton Mystery Malolo has a little preference for backcountry use. To me a 40% piste and 60% off-piste performer. Not very stiff but there is a little pop to use if you search for it. The total package is very well balanced and makes it just a very fine board to handle. Not wearing you out and performing good on every aspect. Suitable for a broad range of riders.

A balanced package

Because the Burton Mystery Malolo snowboard is very light, you can change edges very fast. Very good in fast short turns. On groomers Burton Mystery Malolo holds its line a long time. Only when pushing the limits it can brake out suddenly at the back side, as if the backside of the board is just a little too narrow to give the necessary maximum carving grip. The better it behaves though in disordered terrain and powder: so easy it is to control and turn, marvellous! Overall a 4 star rating for me for the Burton Mystery Malolo.

Yes, it truly is fast and light.
