Pros Fantastic all-around board, great in powderUnmatched pop, great edge hold, supremely stableGreat stability, tons of floatGreat for big mountain, cuts through anything, phenomenal for carvingGreat value, supremely stable at high speeds
Cons Not the best beginner boardNot the best board for powderSecond-rate pop, so-so playfulnessHeavy, not for anyone who likes softer boardNot as much pop as other boards
Bottom Line This is one of our absolute favorite all-mountain boardsEarning one of the top scores we have seen to date, we highly recommend this boardThis stiffer big mountain board is great for carving or for anyone who likes to scream down groomersThe Burton Story Board is a fantastic choice for aggressive, hard-charging freeridersIf you want a top-notch all-mountain board without paying a premium price, the Klassy is the one for you
