Burton Talent Scout 2017
The Burton Talent Scout is a twin shaped, camber park board with a medium flex rating.
Features of the Burton Talent Scout
- PurePop Camber
The PurePop Camber profile has a regular camber section in the middle of the board, which gives you the good parts of camber – like stability at high speed, good edge hold and lots of pop. The small flat sections help to give it a little more forgiveness so it isn’t as catchy as a full regular camber board.
- Twin Shape
It won’t matter if you are riding the Talent Scout regular or switch, it will ride exactly the same both ways.
- Twin Flex
Same as the shape, the flex is symmetrical, which just means that it flexes the exact same in the regular and switch directions.
- Super Fly II Core
The Super Fly II Core is made up of a combination of light and strong woods, to get a good balance between strength and pop, without being too heavy.
- 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
- Triax Fiberglass
- Sintered Base
The sintered base material is hard and fast, and does a good job at keeping soaking up wax.
- 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
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.
