Burton Custom Twin 2017
The Burton Custom Twin is a variation on the regular directional Burton Custom, with a a few extra changes that make it a better choice for park riders.
It obviously has a twin shape, but it also uses the Off-Axis design. Off-Axis is an interesting feature, which is designed to take advantage of the regular park riders duck footed stance. Seeing that most park riders would have their bindings set up to something along the lines of +15 and -15, the thick and thin core profiling (called off axis squeezebox) is aligned with the angles your bindings will be set up to, rather than just just straight across the board. As well as the core profile, the Frostbite edges extend out a little under feet, and the Off-Axis version of this moves the toes out, and the heels in, so that it better aligns with your bindings.
Features of the Burton Custom Twin 2017
- PurePop Camber
Similar to a regular camber profile, PurePop has flat sections and early rise out towards the tip and tail of the board, so you still get the classic camber feel, pop and stability, with a bit more forgiveness.
- 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.
