ARBOR

Bryan Iguchi Pro (Camber)(TC – 159,163) – Bryan Iguchi wanted to design a board that worked for his style of riding – a daily driver. The design is inspired with the intention to perform well in all conditions. He wanted to have the ability to fully commit to carving as hard as possible, yet allow forgiveness in the entry and exit of each turn, regardless of how subtle or dynamic. He spends a lot of time in the backcountry searching for powder but in reality, he still can’t pass up a good wall hit at the resort or resist the urge to blast a method out of a good transition he come across. The Camber System design offers a poppy ride with crisp, fully engaged performance.

Element(TC – 159, 166w) – The Element is built for super clean, highly reliable performance with a focus on craftsmanship. The Element features a higher- end sintered base and Double Barrel I core, our most versatile poplar core reinforced with two bamboo struts for added longitudinal pop and facilitated turning. An American Black Walnut Power Ply topsheet delivers an elegant range of color and grain patterns making this one of the cleanest and most stylish boards on the mountain.

BURTON

Custom (Camber)(TC – 156) – Since its humble beginnings, innovation has defined the Burton Custom series and set it apart as the most popular, versatile, and mimicked board in snowboarding.

Offered in two versions, the precision and stability of the Custom camber is the top choice for many pro riders.

Custom X (Camber) (TC – 158) – The Burton Custom X has repeatedly delivered for snowboarding’s most demanding riders due to precise design and powerful drive. The confidence is in the tech, which includes the carbon-fueled snap of Squeezebox High core profiling, a competition-grade base, and 45° Carbon Highlights High-Voltage for the ultimate in lightweight responsiveness. The hardest charging board we make, the Custom X is available in the power of camber.

Deep Thinker(TC – 157,160w) – The Burton Deep Thinker is a directional spin on Danny Davis’ go-to for hot laps in the park, pipe, or mobbing side hits across the mountain. Adding the float and responsiveness of Directional Camber to a unique shape designed with Balanced Freeride Geometry and just a touch of taper ups the all-mountain abilities while keeping the freestyle performance on full blast. 45° Carbon Highlights deliver snappy pop without the stiff side effects.

Flight Attendant(TC – 159, 162w) – Designed to be a terrain-slaying alternative to more traditional twin shapes, the Burton Flight Attendant is a free spirit that dissects both pow and hard-pack with equal precision. Balanced Freeride Geometry is the secret with setback camber and sidecut that are centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge the board turns tight and quick, with Directional Camber and taper for added float and flow. A blend of big mountain attributes and all-terrain aggression, the Flight Attendant finds the sweet spot for everything from steep lines and spontaneous slashes to wind-lips, pillows, and side hits.
