Strenghts:
Stiff and fast! It doesn't let you down in higher speeds, the more you press the board the better it will be!
Very fast from turn to turn if you want to, even if I prefer long carving turns. Very positive sprung in the board!

Weaknesses:
none! =)

Summary:
Not the best choice for beginners ... =)

Strenghts:
* Speed stable
* Good grip on icy slopes

Weaknesses:
* Not fun when it goes slow (though better than the older custom x)

Summary:
Has had a 2011 year model that was changed to 2021. The big difference is that the 2011 board is stiffer or feels that way in any case. 2021 flexes more, I think, but when you bomb with it, it is still stable. As the 2021 board flexes more, it is easier to ride and more fun, especially with jumps and powders.

In summary, it can be said that the new generation Custom X is easier to ride but retains stability at high speeds. In other words, it has gotten better in most things but has maintained its strength, speed stable!

In the off-piste, it is easier to ride because you do not have to push up the nose as much, it feels like the nose is softer and thus easier to keep it above the snow, flows better.

I loved the 2011 model, this one is better, significant I have a new favorite Burton Custom X 2021;)

Best almountain board I went on. May be a little nervous in lower speeds in the piste but otherwise the bells.

Strenghts:
Returns a lot if you press it. Good cutting and speed stability.

Weaknesses:
Experienced as awkward unless you go hard and actively.

Summary:
If you like speed and sharply cut, this is a good thing. Drive it with Diode Binding and Driver Boots. But in honesty, I think Extrem Enlight has better cut and is even more speed-stable. Gets 4 in grades when I expected a little more.

Model year: 2013
Riding style: Everything but park.

Strenghts:
Awesome stable at high speed and awesome feeling you know exactly what is happening under you.

Weaknesses:
I have not found anyone but have ridden with it for three seasons now.

Summary:
Awesome stable board that works everywhere but you have to press to make it feel good. If you like that the board decides, you should not buy this bed. Without taking a rocker instead. I have been boarding for almost 10 years and have tested or owned almost all models that burton has had and this is clearly the best board I have ridden on works perfectly for me. That's why I did not replace it.

Strenghts:
Stable and hard. A board that does not surprise and drop the edge grip for no reason.

Weaknesses:
Hard, more of the rider is required to have fun on this board. I imagine anyway, a common custom or Flying V is probably seen by most as more easy-going.

Summary:
I have a custom right now a Custom X 159 Wide 2011.
Prior to that, I had a Custom Flying V 162 Wide 2011.

The boards are like night and day compared to each other.
Flying V'n is a lightweight and fun board, which works very well on most surfaces. Followed at lower speeds in a way not Custom X is. Despite its softness, Flying V is just as stable.

Custom X is the board I prefer of the two.
With its 159 cm, I experience it as larger and more stable compared to the Flying V 162.
I am myself a heavy rider who likes to ride fast and push properly when I cut turns. Custom X is for me like a snowboard should be. When it begins to go fast, the board's inserts do not fail, it is stable and swells unevenness in a very good way.

What I'm going to miss compared to Flying V is probably that it's worse in sneezing, harder to get up my nose, and it's a bit shorter.

The 2011 Custom X is the board I liked most during my 20 years + as a fighter, so far I have not disappointed myself. So far this winter I have had a few days in Chamonix, as well as the park at Kungsberget.
It works clockwise for both of these purposes.
