Snowboarding in its cleanest form. The Burton Family Tree Backseat Driver is a pow-surfer to surf the white gold without bindings. You can't get any closer to the ocean on a snowboard.
Before trying to ride a pow-surfer, you should know the basics of snowboarding and pow riding. Beginners will have no fun with the Backseat Driver - for experienced snowboarders, it's a new, fun challenge waiting for you.
Directional Shape, 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. A tapered shape, in this case 25mm, means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow floatation. Look for different amounts of taper throughout the line.
Directional Flat Top™ is a flat profile overall with a rocker nose for the steady stability and effortless float demanded by deep days and surfy terrain.
The Directional Flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.
Lightened-up and loaded with pop, the dual-species FSC™ Certified Super Fly® 800G Core utilizes dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance. Triax™ Fiberglass offers versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred. Extruded Base is a fast and strong base that requires little maintenance. Super Sap® is 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.
Every Burton snowboard core is Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™ C124994) certified. The FSC™ is an independent non‑profit that promotes environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management of our world’s forests.
All Burton boards are packaged in the fully compostable and recyclable paper sleeve. Even better, there is no need to remove the webbing before sending it back into the cycle of life.
