From exploring the trail map to sneaking away in search of secret stashes, the Burton Ft Day Trader boosts your abilities with a versatile and surfy shape that thrives on all terrain. Developed with freeride maven Kimmy Fasani, this tapered, directional board is designed to explore the off-piste with ease, yet is just as fun on groomers, too. Directional Flat Top™ profiling enhances stability and control, while the early rise kicks add the effortless float and feeling of rocker. Features like a sustainable FSC™ certified wood core and bio-based Super Sap® resin ensure the board is easy on both you and the environment.
If you're always on the hunt for untouched pow fields and deep carving turns, then this is your board.
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. A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. The greater amount of volume in front of you will allow for effortless turning in deep or soft snow and increase the float of your board tremendously. Pro-Tip™ is a tapered tip and tail thickness, which reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
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.
The FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core features stronger and lighter woods targeting specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight. Additionally, at the Dualzone™ EGD™ design, the wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength. Squeezebox is a patent-pending technology which improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energising the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate. The Triax™ Fibreglas offers a versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred. 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 maximise 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.
