Burton TWC Pro 2017
The Burton TWC Pro is Shaun White’s board, made to be very responsive, and be able to handle big jumps to icy half pipes.
Features of the Burton TWC Pro 2017
- Camber Bend
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.
- Directional Shape
There board has a directional shape, so it will ride slightly nicer in the regular direction, but there still won’t be any problems if you want to ride it switch.
- Directional Flex
There is more pop in the tail of the board compared to 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
- Frostbite Edges
The edges extend out a little bit under your bindings, which help to give you extra edge hold on icy days.
- 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.
