Burton Snowboards have been the frontline of technology since they began making boards in 1977. Originally Inspired by the Snurfer of the 60s, John Burton Carpenter set out to make snowboarding into the world-class sport it is today. Burton snowboards are designed for the type of terrain you like to hit so you can float over powder, cut into hard pack or catch sweet air in the park like a pro. Check out Burton’s specially made designs for women’s snowboards and kids’ snowboards that let everyone feel the magic of riding a Burton snowboard too.
Flying V and Squeezebox technologies changed the shape of Burton snowboards forever. A cross between the traditional rocker and camber models, Burton Flying V boards have camber underneath the bindings for extra grip and rocker in the middle, tip and tail for better float and relaxed turns. Burton Squeezebox adds additional flex zones that are stiffer that Burton Flying V for an even poppier feel.
Burton snowboards with frostbite edges increase grip and hard surfaces with edges that extend out under the bindings, giving the board a serrated knife look. Pro-tip technology tapers the tip and tail to reduce weight and help you send it over rollers and full out jumps while Scoop technology exaggerates upturned edges on the tip and tail to reduce the likelihood of catching an edge.
The most innovative technology from Burton Snowboards is The Channel snowboard binding attachment system which allows you to fully customize the position of your feet on the board with ease- it’s even simple enough for on mountain adjustments without worrying about losing screws in the snow! Lock any Burton Binding or other brand’s binding into the system and you can change the angle of your feet and the width of your stance in the blink of an eye. The Burton Channel will have you flying down the mountain and pulling tricks in the park with the perfect stance.
