Now as you’d expect from Danny Davis, the Free Thinker is way more than just another regular directional freeride board. Underneath that state of the art, fully directional shape it’s jam-packed full of some of the most advanced materials available. This innovative construction has allowed Burton to dial in a slightly more freestyle focus into the Free Thinker creating, one of the most versatile freeride boards on the market. So, if you’re a creative rider that likes to charge over the whole mountain, but still wants a board that’s going to let you hit up park kickers or throw yourself off backcountry booters, then you can’t get much better than the Free Thinker.

Shape Overview: Tapered Directional
The Deep Thinker utilises an advanced, fully directional tapered shape. This classic snowboard profile is 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. The 7mm tapered shape means that the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. Now to ensure the Deep Thinker still has what it takes to put it down on groomers and icy run-in’s, it features the innovative Frost Bite edges. Frostbite Edges extend out slightly beneath your bindings for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions. Powerful when you need them, playful when you don’t, Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining smooth, flowing, and forgiving.
Profile: Directional Camber
As the Deep Thinker is all about maximising its performance across such a wide spectrum of riding styles and terrain, Burton utilises their Directional Camber profile. This combination of extended rocker in the nose with a set-back camber under the feet delivers the perfect balance of float and response. Entry rocker causes the nose to lift while camber under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions.
As one of the best performing freestyle/all-terrain boards on the market, the Deep Thinker 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, providing pop, strength, and reduced weight. Now to fine-tune the core even further, the wood grain along the toe and heel edges runs perpendicular to the rest of the wood core. This gives consistent edge-hold and added strength. When it comes to the board’s structural layers, once again the Deep Thinker leads the way, formed from Burton’s unique tip-to-tail 45° Carbon Highlights glass they reduce weight and fine-tune torsional feel to achieve the optimum ride characteristics.
To deliver a super-fast glide in all conditions, the Deep Thinker 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. This results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide Open all season in any condition.
