Burton Custom Twin Flying V 2017
The Burton Custom Twin Flying V is a variation on the regular directional Burton Custom. The main difference is that it is a twin shape, and has the Flying V rather than the regular camber profile. There also is the PurePop Camber version of this board.
Features of the Burton Custom Twin Flying V 2017
- Flying V
A hybrid camber that has rocker and camber sections. In between your feet is a rocker section, with camber sections under your feet, and rocker out towards the tip and the tail. The overall rocker profile helps to keep the board loose and easy to ride, while the camber sections help give you some extra edge hold, and get some extra pop.
- Twin Shape
As you would expect from a board with Twin in the name, this is a twin board, so there is no difference if you ride it regular or switch, the shape is exactly the same.
- Twin Flex
The flex on the board is the exact same no matter which way you ride it. So that means that pressing or ollieing will feel the same in both regular and switch directions.
- Super Fly II 700G Core
The core is made up of a combination of strong and light woods, to keep the weight down but still keep it strong. The Super Fly II core is in the middle of the range of cores that Burton offer, with the lightest they have being only 500g and the heaviest being 900g.
- Dualzone EGD
The grain of the core along the toe and heel edge is perpendicular to the rest of the core, to give a little more strength (and they say add edge hold).
- Off-Axis Squeezebox
The core has a profile that changes from thick to thin, which gives it more flexible sections, as well as much stronger sections.
- 45 Degree Carbon Highlights
The 45 degree fiber give the board a more aggressive ride.
- Sintered WFO Base
It’s a hard a fast base material, that is infused with wax to keep it moving fast in all conditions.
- The Channel
They work best with Burton EST bindings, but you can pretty much put any brand of bindings on a Channel board without a problem now. You get much more options for stance width, and angles with a Channel board.
- Off-Axis Frostbite Edges
The edges extend out a little bit under your bindings, which help to give you extra edge hold on icy days.
Fancy name for tapered tip and tails, which keep the weight down and make it a bit easier to spin around.
- Infinite Ride
The boards are built stronger than they need to be, and then put in a machine that “breaks in” the board. It is made so that you end up with a board that is already broken in from new, so that it will have the same flex, pop and feel from new that it does at the end of the season.
