Park/Jibs - Typically soft and buttery, these boards are primarily for throwing down on boxes, rails, urban features, whatever you're after. These boards are generally true twin (or twin-ish) flexing boards for riding regular or switch, and softer flexes for jibbing and overall maneuverability.
Fun and forgiving enough for hot laps through the park - jibbing a box here, blasting a method there, back to the chair and all over again.
Beginner/Casual Riding - These boards are great for lazy day carving on mellow groomers or even playing around off-trail. Great for beginners to intermediate or those just wanting to cruise around and have a no-worries good time on the hill. - generally soft to mid flexing boards designed for easy mobility and mellow turns without breaking the bank.
Soft▼Stiff - Soft Flex - mellow, easy-to-ride, playful buttery goodness for smaller riders, jibbing the park, casual riding, or for those just starting out
Twin - Typically designed for park and jib-influenced riding, this Twin shape snowboard category includes True Twins and Almost Twin (aka Twin-ish or Twin-like) boards with centered stances.
True Twins are symmetrical in shape/flex and will ride exactly the same regular or switch - while Almost Twins will ride equally well in both directions but may have a slightly lengthened (or heightened) nose than tail for a bit better float when riding your normal stance.
Flat Dominant - *Note: profile image exaggerated for visual perspective, please see this brand's specific camber tech for more details
Flat Top Rocker - Rising rider or seasoned pro, keep your game on the level with the Flat Top. A flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free and loose feeling you’d expect from rocker.
Filet-O-Flex Off-Axis Core Profile - Just like traditional Filet-O-Flex except the construction is asymmetrical for a more ergonomic and natural flex. This translates to a more responsive and smooth ride.
Off-Axis Squeezebox™ Core Profile - Just like the traditional Squeezebox Core Profile that you love, the only difference is this profile has been constructed asymmetrically for a more ergonomic and natural riding experience. Squeezebox is a patent-pending technology that transfers energy outward from under your feet, energizing the tip and tail for added snap when executing a turn and ollieing. Thinner core sections underfoot transitions to thicker, more powerful areas between and outside your feet for a more stable board that can be powered up and manipulated with less effort.
Off-Axis Frostbite Edges - Edges beneath your bindings extend out slightly for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions.
Just like the traditional Frostbite Edges that you love, this board features the edges beneath your bindings in an ergonomic and off-axis construction. They still extend out slightly for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions. Powerful when you need them, playful when you don't. Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining ever-forgiving in softer conditions.
3 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 3 years from the time of purchase! Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.
Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.
The Channel - The Channel is an exclusive Burton mounting system using a central spine for virtually endless binding adjust-ability. Introduced in 2011, Burton has widened The Channel along with equipping it with the industry standard hardware for enhanced connection to your snowboard and further compatibility with all Burton bindings along with new compatibility for select competitor's bindings such as Union, Forum and many others (Channel-compatible disc may need to be purchased separately for some brands).
The Channel allows you to micro-adjust stance width, angle, and toe-to-heel centering with ease while at the same time dispersing energy for added rebound and snap.
Super Fly® Core - Lightened up and loaded with pop, this vertical sandwich of hard and soft woods saves weight and improves snap and response. Further optimized for float in their freeride focused boards, and strength in Burton's park-focused boards.
Dualzone™ EGD™ (Engineered Grain Direction) - The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength.
Infinite™ Ride Construction - A Burton exclusive technology allows their boards to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Spring-loaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
Sintered Base - Durable and highly porous, get added durability and superior wax absorption for greater overall glide.
Pro Tips - A tapered tip and tail thickness that reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
