2013 Burton Snowboards

October 3, 2012

By Scott Briggs

The 2013 Burton Snowboards came out in mid august and I can sense people are ready for summer to end so that can hit the hill. The new line of Burton Snowboards for 2013 includes 38 mens boards, 12 women’s snowboard and 9 for the kids. As always each new year is big for Burton and its new tech that is going to make people want to buy a new board.

Burton has been into break down their 2013 Burton snowboards into 3 categories: Camber, Springloaded and Rocker.

Camber: These 2013 burton snowboards are all about speed and control, so if you want that board where you can crank down the mountain and have total control of you board you will love these boards. Our favorite board from the 2013 look is the Family Tree Cheetah Snowboard, the look of this board alone should make people love it. But you will never ever go wrong with the Burton 2013 Custom X.

Springloaded: The all mountain snowboard, it blends a bit of Rocker and Camber, so this board can go fast, have a tight edge but also has that easy turn feel. If you have ever riden a Burton Custom before you are going to love the 2013 Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard, in my mind this is the ultimate all mountain all terrain snowboard.

Rocker: Want that agile floating snowboard that helps to reduce the amount of edges you will catch…. and helps to make that first turn that much easier, you want a rocker. The 2013 Burton Snowboard line has made the rocker boards even better. If I was learning to ride today I would buy a rocker board hand down. These snowboards are going to push you harder and harder to make you want to be a better rider, while not killing your wallet. But these boards are not only for the newbies, they great for jibbing and hitting the park.

Our favorite tech added to Burton Snowboard 2013 line is the Squeezebox. The squeezebox tech is all about improving performance by enhancing a more powerful core to provide you a stable and maneuverable snowboard.

Overall… if you are a Burton Snowboard fan, you are going to love the 2013 Burton Snowboards.

The Burton Custom X is one of Burton Snowboards most popular boards and in my opinion one of the best snowboards for those all mountain freestyle riders like myself.    The Burton Custom X 2012 like year past is all about the fast response time and the amazing edge control, so for the riders of the North East who always have to deal with the ice…. this is a board you will love.

2012 Burton Snowboards

September 30, 2011

By Scott Briggs

Boston – The 2012 Burton Snowboard line has been out for a little over a month and like any big brand they came out with a bang.  They launched an event around a winter storm during the summer…. there was a lot of hype “Winter Storm is Coming” in August campaign.   The follow this up with the Big Dump, where they gave away a full Burton setup from Board to Jacket and then a season pass to a mountain of your choice.   So Burton was not holding back with their 2012 line, they where going out with the mantra of “Go Big or Go Home”.   Like most other snowboarders I was chilling finish out the summer, and then good old Burton was actually able to get me to step away from the sun and start thinking winter on my 201o Burton Custom….  or could the per-sway me to go out and get a new snowboard for the 2012 season.

The 2012 Burton snowboards are as hot as even and include a new board that is getting a lot of attention by the name of the Nug.   The 2012 Burton Nug snowboard is a smaller style board that is supposed to ride like the big boys and ok for the big boys to ride.   The idea for this board is that it is smaller than 150 cm and can handle a 200 lb person, rides like a skateboard.

The rest of the 2012 Burton snowboard line bring back all your favorite from 2011 with some new twists and turns.  One of the cooler things you will see with the 2012 line is that now you can look at the boards based on their core:  Chamber (Precise & Snappy), Springload (Hybrid – Chamber/Rocker) and then Rocker (Loose and Agile).

Overall if you like Burton you are going to want to test out some of the 2012 Burton Snowboards.

Burton Custom X 2011

November 20, 2010

By Scott Briggs:

Boston – The 2011 Burton Custom snowboard is board that will never die and hopefully Burton is smart enough to keep bringing it back.   The one thing you will learn about Burton and the Burton Custom X is that not only do they bring it back, but they are always pushing to make this board even better.

What’s new with the 2011 Burton Custom X?

The 2011 Burton Custom X is all about feel and control; the two major features that make this reality are the Chamber and the New Burton Technology of the Lightning Bolts Hi-Voltage.

The Chamber of the board is that part of the snowboard that is between the tip and tail, think about it like the suspension of a car.  The chamber on the Custom X works to evenly distribute the weight throughout the board so that you will have ultimate control to be able to truly tear up the mountain.

The New Lightning Bolts Hi-Voltage is the addition to the Custom X for 2011 that any rider is going to love.  The old Lightning Bolts where all about transferring energy from the core of the board to the edge so that almost as soon as your brain is thinking turn it happens.  The New Hi-Voltage take this to a whole new level, basically they have added strands above and below the core that pushed the energy out to the edges to give you dual action, increasing the response and control of the board.

The final take of the 2011 Burton Custom X:
This is the ultimate riders board, once you get on it you are going to love it.  The true wood core of this board along with its Chambers is going to give you that type of snap and control to take it to the next level.

Burton Custom V Rocker 2010

January 9, 2010

By Scott Briggs

The 2010 Burton Custom V-Rocker is a new Burton board for the 2010 season and some are already saying it is one of their best new additions in a while.  This board takes all the top elements that already existed in a Burton Custom and adds the Burton Rocker technology.

The Burton Custom V-Rocker comes with some of Burton’s top following technology like the V-Rocker, The Channel, and Dualzone EDG.

The V-Rocker is basically places a rocker between your feet, with two additional rockers at the tip and tail that to keep each end completely off the snow.  For those who have never experience the rocker shape before, this style makes those on ground tricks like spinning and jumping super easy.  The Channel I have talked about before and some riders love it… for me I don’t change my binding settings that often so I am not the hugest fan of “The Channel”.  And lastly the Dualzone EDG is one of my favorites, it takes the wood grain and positions it along the toe and heel edges, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for superior edge hold and added strength.  For anyone who has been cranking down the mountain and had that edge give on them and took a hard face plant you will appreciate why I think the is one of my favorite features.

Overall I am a fan of this snowboard.. I have always been a big fan of the Custom and this one with the V-Rocker makes it that much better.  If you are looking for a stiff or longer snowboard you are not going to like this board.  The Custom V-Rocker rides soft and only comes in 151,154, and 156.

The Burton T6 snowboard has three of Burtons top tech features that it adds to it boards; Smooth Ride Technology, The Channel, and Alumafly Core:

September 19, 2009

By Scott Briggs

The 2010 Burton Blunt is back for another year and bigger than ever.  Burton seems to love this snowboard and is putting more and more tech into it each year.   The Burton Blunt is one of the ultimate Park Boards that will help take you to the next level.  Transworld Snowboard has already named the Burton Blunt the “Good Wood” Pipe board for 2010.

The 2010 Burton Blunt has top notch enhancements, the New Twin Cruise Control and the V-Rocker.    The Burton Cruise Control™ technology will  make you feel more confident while riding this snowboard.  The reason you will feel confident is Cruise Control gives you a combination of not only being catch-free, but also have a softer flex and less edge tune and a  convex nose and tail for easy riding in both directions.  The second layer of new tech is the V-Rocker, Burton’s version of the rocker features a center rocker between you feet with additional rockers on the outside of each that lift the tip and tail completely off the snowboard.  The V-Rocker is going to give you killer edge control and a catch-free riding experience.

Overall the 2010 Burton Blunt is going big with some major enhancements to give you the ultimate ride.  Even though this is called a Park snowboard, this is a board you can have a ton of fun with on the whole mountain.
