PRO PERFORMANCE FROM BURTON’S MOST AGGRESSIVE BOARD
It’s pretty safe to say that if you spend a few minutes watching any high-level halfpipe comp, you’ll very quickly notice that the iconic Burton Custom X seems to be the default board for the majority of the riders. That in itself would be good enough to earn it a special place in the hierarchy of high-end snowboards. However, once you add into the equation just how good this board is when you get it out on the mountain, you’ll very quickly understand why this ground-breaking snowboard is seen as one of the best all-terrain boards on the market. As the most powerful board in the Burton line, this unique high-performance powerhouse is aimed squarely at experienced riders who are looking for the ultimate in all-terrain freestyle performance. Built around a blunt-tipped directional shape with twin flex, the Custom X is a tour de force of high-end construction.

Advanced all-terrain riders
Shape Overview: Directional
The Custom X utilises a state of the art directional shape, to create a genuinely versatile board that is happy in any terrain. However, at heart, the Custom X 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 X 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 advanced snowboards on the market, the Custom X is all about its construction, and heading this up is the FSC™ Certified Dragonfly™ 600G Core with Multizone EGD™ and Squeezebox. This state of the art profiled wood core uses end-grain woods in impact zones, allowing the designers to reduce weight by using lighter woods in the rest of the board without sacrificing strength. To fine-tune this even further, the wood grain is turned perpendicular to the rest of the core in four separate zones adjacent to edges. This increases power transfer direct to the sidecut, increasing edge control and speeding up response. Also, carbon fleece is integrated into the core, layered just outside the feet. This enables almost instant reaction in the tip and tail. When it comes to the structural layers, once again, the Custom X leads the way. These are formed from Burton’s unique 45° Carbon Highlights glass. This high-performance Tri-Ax glass optimises each layer of the fibreglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine tune torsional flex to achieve the optimum riding characteristics. The Custom X, also adds carbon strands to the angled fibre layers to add life and reduce weight.
Base: Sintered WFO
To deliver a super-fast glide in all conditions, the Custom X uses Burtons exclusive Sintered WFO Base. This unique base material Infuses a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material. This results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide Open all season in any condition.
