    Rippin’ Rider Review:
    Burton Buzz Cap

    Rippin RiderOur tester, Blake from Southern California, couldn’t wait to test out his Burton Buzz Cap. Blake, age 9, wrote in his Rippin’ Rider application, “I almost fell off the lift last year so I need a helmet. I am a shredder and love vert.” Well we sent Blake a Burton Buzz Cap helmet and here’s his report.

    Blake rides at Southern California resorts. This report came from a day he spent at Mountain High in Wrightwood, California, then from discussions with his Dad, Jerry.

    Functionality of Product: It works as intended and is easy to put on and buckle while wearing gloves. However, the goggle-strap holder in the back could be better designed; it now requires the goggle-strap be removed from one side of the goggles in order to be threaded through the holder. The vents are a unique feature, but don’t appear to be very effective. No difference was noticed whether they were open or closed. The color (light blue) made it easy to spot in a crowded area.

    How it is made: The helmet appears to be sturdy and able to handle the abuse that a child would inflict on it, although it was never involved in a crash (yet) or dropped (as kids do). It would seem to be able to last many seasons, being passed down to younger kids as older kids grew out of it.

    Use: The product was first used at Mountain High for a day of snowboarding on man-made snow. However, Rippin Riderwhen it arrived at our house, it could have been used to sleep in, if allowed, because of the excitement that it caused. Especially after personalizing it and covering it with stickers. Mountain High is special to us because it is the first place that the kids ever snowboarded and it is historically the first local resort to open each year because of their extensive snowmaking capabilities. It was enjoyable to use for the protection, warmth, and cool-factor that it provided. And it didn’t even itch!

    Performance: The helmet helped performance because it instilled more confidence that protection would be provided in the event of a crash.

    Cool Factor: The helmet is a cool thing and makes friends want one too. It could be improved by making it in mixed colors (black/silver, yellow/red, or blue/gold (same as the St. Louis Rams) and/or with lightening bolt and flame stickers.
