Burton - Troop (08/09)
Test Location & Conditions:
Shred Betties Says:
A softer flex and great pop made for an unexpectedly fun ride. Where a lot of the all-mountain freestyle boards we tested lacked a bit, due to the attempt to make the board both all mountain and freestyle, the snappy flex and responsive feel made this board a pleasure. We’d recommend the Troop for girls who are interested in advancing their freestyle skills, but still need something that can handle the rest of the mountain.
Working with freestyle phenom Elena Hight, we’ve redesigned the Troop™ with a more stable shape, softer flex, and our latest tech to maximize the fun. NEW Smooth Ride Plus™ in the topsheet and sidewalls takes the thunder out of the chunder so you can charge with more speed, control, and finesse. Park, pow, or cruisers—pick your poison and then pick it to pieces.
FUN-O-METER RATING SYSTEM:
Fun all mountain freestyle board.
Medium flex makes this board versatile around the mountian.
