Please. While I can see a skier shelling out $900 for a pair of Fischer AMC 76's or $3,500 for a pair of Zai Siegiu because they look good on the Range Rover or Hummer, snowboarders should know better. Once you get past the $500 range for a snowboard the performance improvement is Zilch. Zero. Nada. Now, you might read the following description and say to yourself, my life is a meaningless, hollow shell that can only be filled by the Vapor. And if that's the case, well, you probably need to be taken out back and given a good beating. The hype:
The Vapor Snowboard is the lightest board in the Burton line. The Vapor takes the lightweight approach a step further and reduces weight by one pound from any other board they have ever made! By eliminating any unnecessary materials, and using only the strongest and lightest aerospace composites, Burton has been able to create this mind-reading all-terrain machine. Just think about turning and you'll be on edge. Constructed with only the best components available the Vapor has a lightening fast WFO base and Multizone EGD core to obtain unreal speeds and maintain a smooth ride. The Vapor's Pressure Distribution Edge holds onto carves and lets you control turning with slight input from your toe and heel. Burton has built the ultimate ultra-responsive board for the most demanding riders.
The reality is this. If you think this board will add anything to your riding, then after the beating, I challenge you to a winner takes all race. Name the time and place and I'll be there with my rock board to make you feel like Rome after the Visigoths. Free Shipping when you buy from The House.
