Board Tech

EcoZen Topsheet – A hyper clear co-polyester material that is created from renewable raw materials.

 

Super Sap Epoxy – A resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board, which is good in our book.

 

Infinite Ride – Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, 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.

 

Balanced Freeride Geometry – Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry on the Landlord, Landlord Split, Flight Attendant, NEW Gate Keeper, High Spirits, and Anti-Social ends the debate with setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.

 

Filet-O-Flex – Some riders want a more flexible board without sacrificing performance. Filet-O-Flex solves that challenge with ultra-thin profiling that creates soft boards that rip with maximum stability, durability, and grip. An additional benefit is subtle suspension and underfoot padding. Featured on the Name Dropper, Socialite, Social, Feather, ProTest, and Skipjack Surf.

 

Pro-Tip – A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

 

The Channel – Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable—The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton’s). Better yet, all boards with The Channel are fully covered by a 3-year warranty. This means that if you have any issue with any part of the board, even if The Channel is in mint condition, you are covered.

 

Mystery Construction – Shaving weight while enhancing feel and strength, Mystery Construction creates a board that’s lighter than anything Burton has seen to date. Much of it’s a secret, but the combination of a precision milled Ultrafly Core and proprietary carbon-fiber matrix drops serious weight while maintaining a playful and snappy ride. Exclusively offered on the Mystery, the first board developed at Craig’s, our in-house proto facility.

 

Stainless Frostbite Edges – Get superior defense against rust and corrosion for edges that remain razor-sharp.

 

Frostbite Edges – Introduced by Burton long before all the hype about wavy “serrated knife” edges, Frostbite extends out slightly beneath your bindings 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 smooth, flowing, and forgiving.

 

Scoop – Scooped tips so you don't catch anything funky. This exaggerated tip and tail scooping turns up the edges for a looser, more forgiving feel that adds catch-free fun when riding everything from a knee-high box to neck-deep pow.

Off-Axis Frostbite Edges – Introduced by Burton long before all the hype about wavy “serrated knife” edges, Frostbite extends out slightly beneath your bindings 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 smooth, flowing, and forgiving.

 

Off-Axis Squeezebox – Matches the angles of a typical park rider’s stance by having a defined heel edge on the board no matter which foot you ride forward.  (optimized for 15, -15, but you can ride just about anything). This gives better toe and heel edge grip, natural flex around the bindings, smoother feel on take-offs and landings, and more natural heel side turns.

 

Side Effects – This patented design lengthens the surface area at the tip and tail contact points to improve edge-hold and allow the board to plane easier in pow. Enjoy a livelier feel and enhanced grip on groomers along with added float for overhead days.

 

Cruise Control Edge Tune – This catch-free edge tune combines with rocker on the Clash™, Feather™, Genie, and Ripcord to help new riders progress, and good riders get even better.

 

Easy Bevel Edge Tune – Easy Bevel on the Genie, Ripcord, Chopper®, Chopper LTD Marvel©, Chicklet™, Riglet, and After School Special gives riders an incredibly soft and forgiving board that’s virtually impossible to catch an edge on. With a convex base that lifts the edges off the snow and a super soft flex, these boards make it easy to learn balance and board control.

 

Overbite Frostbite Side Edges – Eats up ice and hardpack, yet playful in soft conditions. This evolution in edge tech gives you more fang with less bang by giving you twice the amount of Frostbite. It’s a subtle tweak, but the result is a huge increase in grip on hard, icy conditions while remaining smooth and catch-free. Exclusive to the Talent Scout, Deja Vu Flying V™, Social, and Socialite.
