Burton Process 2017
The Burton Process comes in two versions- camber and Flying V. The camber version has the most aggressive profile of the two, and is the version you should choose if you need a solid board that is better for doing bigger jumps and riding fast.
If you have a look on the pictures tab, you’ll see that the Process is the board that Mark McMorris rides, showing that with the right rider, it can handle triples on huge icy jumps, as well as rails.
Features of the Burton Process 2017
The traditional camber is the profile that gives you the most pop, stability and edge hold. It isn’t necessarily the easier profile to ride, but it gives you a really good ride if you are going to put the work in. Ollies will snap back nicely, and it has a very stable feel.
- 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).
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.
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.
- 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.
- 3 Year Warranty
If you really want to push your riding, pick the camber version of the Process, which is going to give you the best edge hold, stability at speed and pop. If you are still learning, and want a board that is going to give you a bit more forgiveness (so you don’t have to land everything perfectly), and want to be able to butter more easily, look at the Flying V version.
