BURTON’S ICONIC DO EVERYTHING RIDE, ANYTHING BOARD
The Burton Custom has been an integral part of snowboarding for what seems like forever. The fact that even today, over 20 years since it was first released, it’s still seen as the benchmark performance all-terrain snowboard, is testament to just how right that original concept was. Even today, after numerous incarnations, the 2021 Burton Custom Wide is still the go-to board for riders who want outstanding performance over the whole mountain. Built around a state of the art directional shape and utilising a freestyle inspired twin flex, the Custom delivers a level of all-terrain versatility that is nothing short of remarkable. Combine that class-leading versatility with Burton’s state of the art high-end construction and it easy to understand why the Custom is so popular. So, if you’re an experienced rider looking for a high performing board that’s equally happy lapping the park, charging groomers or even exploring the backcountry, the Custom might just be the board for you.

Shape Overview: Directional
The Custom utilises an advanced all-terrain directional shape, to create a genuinely versatile board that is happy in any terrain. However, at heart, the Custom is still a freestyle board. So to help it deliver a more balanced freestyle friendly ride, Burton gives it a more playful Twin Flex. Now to ensure the Custom provides rock-solid edge hold, it features the innovative Frost Bite edges. Frostbite Edges extend out slightly beneath your bindings for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions and are powerful when you need them and playful when you don’t.
As the Custom is all about high performance, anything other than a traditional camber would be pointless. Delivering a poppy ride, powerful turns and rock-solid stability, it’s the camber that brings the Custom alive. Camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail.
As one of the most responsive all-terrain boards on the market, the Custom utilises some of the most up to date construction available. Heading this up is the advanced Squeezebox FSC Super Fly II™ 700G Core with Dualzone™ EGD™. This state of the art profiled wood core uses stronger and lighter woods targeted to specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight. Now to ensure that the rider’s energy is transferred directly to the edges, Burton turns the wood grain along the toe and heel edges perpendicular to the rest of the core. Now when it comes to the board’s structural layers, once again the Custom leads the way. Formed from Burton’s unique 45° Carbon Highlights glass. Carbon Highlights optimises 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.
To deliver a super-fast glide in all conditions, the Custom uses Burtons exclusive WFO Base. This unique base material Infuses a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material, resulting in an ultra-durable base that stays wide open all season in any condition.
