Burton Feelgood ES Snowboard Review.
The Burton FeelGood ES is a stiffer all mountain snowboard that’s great for advanced female riders. I bought my 145 ES on Proform last season and it’s become my board of choice. In this episode I share my opinion, feedback and recommendations.
Buy the Burton Feelgood ES Snowboard.
Pros: Overall I really like the Feelgood ES. Since it’s an all mountain board, this snowboard is very versatile. It’s stiffer than a regular all-mountain or freestyle snowboard, so it’s very stable carving at high speeds. You can trust your edges to hold, even on ice, and it’s got a springy-ness that lets you bounce between turns, which is fun. Nice, big carves work well—quick snappy turns are easy too since it’s quick edge-to-edge. The FeelGood ES does well in the terrain park and half-pipe. I didn’t have trouble with boxes, rails or jumps—but there were times I wished it was softer and more forgiving. It can hold its own in powder, but you do need to sit back a little to stay on top of the snow.
Cons: The stiffness makes it more prone to catching an edge, so this is a bad choice for beginners. Riders who aren’t as aggressive should try the Burton FeelGood (no ES), because it has the versatility of the ES with a softer flex that’s more generous for beginners.
Who should buy this board: Intermediate or expert female riders looking for one board to handle everything the mountain can throw your way. I really like this snowboard, but the stiffness works best for aggressive riders.
