Shape Overview: Twin
The Descendent utilises a fully balanced, park-inspired twin-tip shape with twin flex. This innovative design reduces weight at the tip and tail, cutting swing weight to an absolute minimum. By reducing swing weight, you reduce the momentum at the extremities of the board, giving the rider more control and feel. That reduction in nose and tail volume also allows the designers to give the board a longer effective edge. So not only does the Descendent give you great control in the park, but it also rips on the piste because you’ve got more edge in contact with the snow.
Profile: Pure Pop Camber
To deliver the ultimate in control and feel without sacrificing response and pop, the Descendent utilises Burton’s innovative PurePop Camber. This evolution of a traditional camber shape features subtle flat zones just outside your feet to amplify pop and add playfulness to the snap and response of camber. Early rise tip and tail sections spin and float with a catch-free feel.
As the Descendent is all about delivering that easy-going and forgiving all-terrain ride, Burton uses a combination of modern technology and traditional construction. Heading this up is the advanced FSC™ Certified Super Fly® 800G Core with Dualzone™ EGD™. This state of the art wood core uses utilises dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance. Now to dial in the perfect easy-going flex, the core is re-profiled with Squeezebox Low. Adding thicker and stiffer zones just outside the feet, it creates a direct energy transfer to the tip and tail while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. To give the Descendent its more forgiving ride, it utilises bi-ax glass structural layers. These deliver a playful, torsionally soft flex that makes learning a breeze.
To deliver exceptional performance in all conditions, the Descendent utilises a super-fast sintered base material.
