Pro-caliber is a strong statement for any board, but 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 Hi-Voltage for the ultimate in lightweight responsiveness. The Custom X is the stiffest board in Burtons' product lineup and the best choice for riders seeking for a podium finish or shooting the next snowboard movie.
The hardest charging board Burton makes, it is the choice for riders who own podiums and stack serious footage. The traditional camber provides you with plenty of pop and control from piste to backcountry.
Directional is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition. Pro-Tip™ is a tapered tip and tail thickness, which reduces swing weight for easier mobility. Long before the hype about waved edges, Burton introduced frostbite edges. They extend slightly beneath your bindings for an extremely good edge-hold on hard-pack. Full of power when you need it and playful when you don't. Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining smooth, flowing, and forgiving.
The traditional Camber profile is an advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision, camber speaks to the core values of board design. Offering a snappy suspension, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail. If you like to haul ass and go big, camber is irreplaceable.
The stiff flex of the Burton Custom X is perfect for going extremely fast and hitting expert level freestyle features. The stiffness will provide you with loads of response and precise control that allow those micro adjustments that you need while blazing towards a kicker or hip at jet fighter speeds. The Twin Flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for versatility whether riding naturally or switch.
The FSC™ Certified Dragonfly™ 600G Core uses end-grain woods in impact zones which allow Burton to swap heavier woods for lighter weight species without sacrificing strength. Multizone EGD™ means that the wood grain is perpendicular to the core adjacent in four separate zones, to The Channel™ mounting system —the area from which a rider’s power emanates—for ultimate strength and edge control. The Squeezebox High is a profiled core for easier board control, more energy, and pop. By integrating carbon fleece into the classic Squeezebox profile, Burton loaded up their highest performance core profiling with more pop. Layered just outside your feet, the carbon enables almost instant response in the tip and tail. Carbon Highlights Hi-Voltage optimizes each layer of the fibreglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 60° fibre angle creates a highly manoeuvrable and playful feel, while a 45° fibre angle provides a more aggressive ride. Additional carbon strands to the angled fibre layers add life and further reduce weight. At the Sintered WFO Base, the wax is worked deep into the pores of this extremely absorbent, dense material. The result is an extremely durable base that stays wide open in every weather condition the whole season long. The Burton-exclusive Infinite Ride™ technology allows Burton 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, with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season. This board features Super Sap®, which is a resin formulated with biobased materials that reduce the footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. 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). In fact, Burton trusts it so much that all boards with The Channel are backed by a 3-year warranty.
