Burton Feelgood 2017
The Burton Feelgood is a directional, traditional camber board with plenty of pop that suits aggressive riders.
Features of the Burton Feelgood 2017
- Camber Bend
The Feelgood has an original camber profile, which gives the board lots of pop, edge hold with a reliable feeling. Best for aggressive and confident riders, because it isn’t forgiving, but for the right rider will not hold them back.
- Directional Shape
Being an all mountain board, it has a directional shape, which means that it is designed to be ridden one way, but you can still ride the board switch without any problems.
- Twin Flex
Although it has a directional shape, the flex pattern (or feeling when you flex the board) is symmetrical, so it will flex the same no matter whether you are riding it regular or switch.
- FSC Certified 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).
- Sintered WFO Base
It’s a hard a fast base material, that is infused with wax to keep it moving fast in all conditions.
- 60 Degree Carbon Highlights
- Frostbite Edges
The edges extend out a little bit under your bindings, which help to give you extra edge hold on icy days.
- Guard Rails
- Squeezebox High
The core has a profile that changes from thick to thin, which gives it more flexible sections, as well as much stronger sections.
- 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.
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.
