Burton Process Off-Axis

Burton Process Off-Axis 2017

The Burton Process Off-Axis is a slightly different version of the other two Process models – the Camber and the Flying V. The first difference is that this version uses the PurePop camber profile, which is a slightly toned down version of the regular camber. It has flat sections after the camber area, which changes into an early rise out to the tip and tail of the board. This makes it a bit more forgiving, but still gives you the pop and stability that you get from a camber board, with a bit less of the catchy feeling.

The main feature of this board is the Off-Axis design, which means that the board is designed around park riders standard binding setup. To get an idea, if you have a fairly standard bindings angle setup of +15 and -15, your feet and toes will be pointed slightly outward compared to your heels.

To take advantage of that, the Off-Axis design aligns the core profiling (thick and thin sections, called Squeezebox), to the direction of your feet, rather than straight across the board. On top of that, the frostbite edges are aligned with your toes and heels.

Although it is a twin board, the board is marked with places to put your left and right feet, as it would be very weird to ride is set up the wrong way. Although this might sound confusing, it doesn’t matter if you are goofy or regular, you just have to make sure your heels are set up on the correct heelside of the board.

The heelside of the board has a slightly softer flex than the toeside – as it is much easier to put a lot of weight over your toes than it is over your heels.

Features of the Burton Process Off-Axis 2017

  • PurePop Camber
    Similar to a regular or traditional camber profile, the PurePop has flat sections outside of the camber section, which changes into early rise at the tip and tail.

  • Twin Shape
    It is a symmetrical shape, which is ideal for park riding. It won’t matter if you are riding it regular or switch, it will have the same feel.
  • Twin Flex
    Although it has a directional shape, 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.
  • Sintered Base
    It’s a hard and fast base material, that is good at soaking up wax, and keeping you moving quickly.
  • Scoop
    The nose and tail of the board are scooped up, which is made to get a more forgiving and looser feel while riding.
  • 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.
  • Pro-Tip
    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.

From evo.com

Bought this board wanting to trying a full camber for the first time. To my surprise it was far better than I had hoped. It holds its edge great and maneuvers awesome. This is my third Burton snowboard and my favorite by far.

This is a great and I love the snake graphics. The off axis has a lot of feel, response, and pop. The board is very stable after landing, making it a very confident inspiring.
