Rider Profile: Experienced All-Terrain riders
The Free Thinker is aimed at experienced riders who are looking for a versatile, high-performance board that encourages creative riding across the whole mountain.
Sintered WFO Base
Shape Overview: Twin
The Free Thinker utilises a true twin shape. This is perfectly symmetrical and delivers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. No matter if you’re Jibbing, spinning, stomping landings or even just buttering around. The twin shape delivers the ultimate in freestyle balance and stability. Now to ensure the Free 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 conditions. Powerful when you need them, playful when you don’t, Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining smooth, flowing, and forgiving.
As the Free Thinker is all about high performance, anything other than a traditional camber would be pointless. An advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision, camber speaks to the core values of board design. Offering a snappy ride, 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 versatile and best performing freestyle/all-terrain boards on the market, the Free 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 board to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight. To fine-tune the core even further, the wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, 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 Free Thinker 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 Free 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.
