2017 Burton Feather Snowboard
Escape the doldrums of lackluster second hand boards, and pick up the Feather. This easy flexing, progression-minded board will help you develop the skills you need to tackle the whole mountain.
ROCKER TYPE: Flat Top™ – A flat profile overall with subtle rocker rise provides an extra stable platform underfoot with a catch-free feel at the tip and tail.
Filet-O-Flex – Some riders want a more flexible board without sacrificing performance. Filet-O-Flex solves that challenge with ultra-thin profiling that creates soft boards that rip with maximum stability, durability, and grip. An additional benefit is subtle suspension and underfoot padding.
Twin Flex – Having a twin flex indicates that your board is perfectly symmetrical in flexibility from tip to tail so you gain a more balanced and predictable ride.
SHAPE: 3 - 6 mm Taper – A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation.
Directional – The classic snowboard shape for fast riding and precise turns. You can go ride powder or big mountain obstacles with ease. Directional boards are designed with a flexible/‘softer’ nose and a stiff tail for ample flotation.
FSC™ Certified Super Fly® 800G Core – Lightened up and loaded with pop, Burton's dual-species wood core utilizes dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance.
Dualzone™ EGD™ – The wood grain is positioned perpendicularly along the toe and heel edges. Engineered Grain Direction provides you with consistent edge-hold and added strength.
Squeezebox Low – Burton's Squeezebox improves your boards performance by balancing thicker more powerful core sections in with thinner more flexible sections. Meaning you get enhanced board connectivity, response and predictability
LAMINATES: Biax™ Fiberglass – Gives the board a jib and park friendly feel by softening the torsional flex.
Extruded Base – An extruded base is full of speed, strength and amazing pop. These bases require little maintenance.
Cruise Control Edge Tune – Boosts confidence with the catch-free combo of a softer flex and mellower edge tune. On tapered boards like the Clash™ and Feather™ the nose is fully convex for all-terrain stability.
