DESCRIPTION:
The world’s lightest high-performance board. Ultra-light and ultra-responsive, the Vapor rides like an extension of your mind--you think, it reacts. A full pound lighter than any other board in the line, the Vapor is the most technologically advanced all-terrain board, period. It’s not what’s in this board, but what’s not that makes it so amazing. The culmination of 28 years of board-building experience, the new Vaportech construction allows us to enhance the state-of-the-art composite design by minimizing materials without sacrificing durability. The all-terrain Vapor boasts only the highest grade aerospace materials and design to create an extra-sensory riding experience that will change how you ride.

Strengths: Of course its light and i have not had a problem yet on it. If you go at high speeds or off the trial. I recomend this board because it handles most everything so well. Cuts fast, its just feals fantastic when you ride it over all.
Weaknesses: Price most people will say but if you ride almost everyday or every week. This board is well worth all this money.

Strengths: incredibly stable and lightweight, yet has a forgiving flex. perfect for the slopes or halfpipe.
Weaknesses: a little too stiff for rails and the price is pretty steep.

Strengths: Super Light-Duh! No this Burton snowboard is super sick. It is super stable at speed and a fun all around board. With its low swing weight it is easy to spin on .
Weaknesses: Yes the price is very high, and I am cautious about durability sometimes. But I haven`t had a problem yet.

Would you become so light that you could float above, rather than on the snow? The most technologically refined snowboard on earth, the Burton Vapor erases the l... More»

Strengths: i bought my 08 vapor at the orlando burton outlet for 60% off for 399.99!!!! i took it to colorado for the first time and it just hovers! it makes u a better boarder, aggressive, and tons of control! i love it! looking into a cheap park board since i live in atlanta and i dont wanna mess up my vapor in the south east! lol
Weaknesses: not as much pop as i expected but enough for a directional board! but who needs the pop when ur booking it faster than anybody on the mt!!!! king of the mountain mountain mountain!

Designers and engineers stayed up late sweating every detail of the Vapor™—arguing over grams, literally peeling apart countless proto decks to fight for every ounce of untapped performance. The result is a smoke-weight snowboard so technologically refined it erases the line between mind and mountain, allowing world champion Kevin Pearce to ride w... More»

Strengths: King of the Mountain! Truley a board with looking into, even into 2013 still rides amazing lighter than smoke. Way head of its time back in 08-09 and still is. This is a must for halfpipers and freeriders!
Weaknesses: A bit stiff, but still has some nice pop. Probably the sickest board ever to come to market even through 2013.

Setting a standard the competition can’t even fathom, the Vapor™ is so polished and refined that riding it brings the best out of anyone who gets on it. Simply put, you dream it, this board does it. Featherweight for effortless flow and instant action, this year’s edition gets even lighter (and tighter) with the addition of the Slimrail, along wit... More»
