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."

Intermediate allrounder


Burton Trick Pony (162 cm tested length) is a camber snowboard for allround use on and off-piste. My notes: intermediate stiffness, neutral handling, good rotation. Certainly the Trick Pony is suitable for Intermediate to advanced boarders as it forgives. The camber in the Trick Pony board has very little pop, no punishment there either and doesn't excel in a special way. For if you are looking for an easy board which can do everything ok and won't get you tired too much.

Allround usage

On groomers the Burton Trick Pony board handles well, it's playful and it rotates quickly. Grip is there, but not that it will give you the confidence of trying to push the limit. Neutral flex, just right to be comfortable without getting too slack. Off-piste though I found myself leaning backwards to keep it floating and preventing it to dive. Speeding up helps, but you still have to be focussed. Overall I found the Burton Trick Pony snowboard has an average performance and no challenge or extremes what I prefer, so therefor 3 stars.

Burton about the Trick Pony

"A different spin on ‘true-twin’ design, with more than enough power and stability to take your creativity to any conditions. For park riders who also love pow, the Burton Trick Pony pushes your abilities into natural terrain with a unique shape and feel that’s unlike anything else in the Burton lineup. Harnessing float and freestyle playfulness, this tweaked true twin takes the power and float of PurePop Camber from pat-down takeoff to stomped landing. It’s an evolution in Bend featuring flat zones outside your feet and early rise at the tip and tail to give you way better control and ollie power in either direction, while still letting you float effortlessly with a centered stance.", says Burton. The stomped landings I didn't try, but results of the float design I found hard to detect.
