Burton Flight Attendant 2017
The Burton Flight Attendant has a freeride shape, that is made to do just as well on groomed runs as it does in powder.
Features of the Burton Flight Attendant
- Directional Camber
- Directional Shape
The directional shape means that there is a slightly longer nose than tail, which helps give the tail pop, and the nose more float in deep snow.
- 10mm Taper
This means that the nose is wider than the tail, which does a couple of things. It helps make starting turns easy and smooth, keep the board stable at high speeds and the wider nose helps to keep it afloat in deep snow.
- Directional Flex
There is more flex in the tail end of the board than the nose.
- 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.
- Triax Fiberglass
The core has a profile that changes from thick to thin, which gives it more flexible sections, as well as much stronger sections.
- Carbon I-Beam
The Carbon I Beam runs lengthwise down the board, and helps give it more pop.
- 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.
- Balanced Freeride Geometry
From Burton’s site: Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry on the NEW Landlord ends the debate with setback camber and sidecut that are centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.
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.
