2023 Burton Snowboard Overview

With the winter Olympics running and the tail end of summer drawing nearer by the day, what better time to gear up for the upcoming snow season, and what better range to look at then Burtons new 2023 snowboard line-up. Burton has spearheaded many of the improvements made in snowboarding over the years, by creating ground-breaking products, supporting the world's best riders, and pushing more resorts to allow snowboarding, resulting in snowboarding’s transformation from a backyard hobby to a world-class sport. Burton’s reverberations are not limited to the snow industry, with their involvement in sustainable energy, environmental health and safety, fair labour, and gender equity circles. Since Burtons beginning, snowboards have seen many shapes and sizes, some remaining while others not. Since all the varieties on offer can be confusing, here we will break down the new range into a digestible overview summarising shapes and bends, riding types and styles, size, while displaying some of the brand-new graphics.

All mountain

If you are starting in snowboarding or a seasoned pro, an all-terrain / all-mountain board is a great starting point and if you are not sure what board you should get, start with this category. As the name suggests, these boards are your do it all option. From parks, pipes, powder, and everything in between. You name it; these boards will do it.

We have the Burton Process snowboard, which is a great value option to start things off. But don't let the price tag fool you. Constantly evolving, the Process Snowboard is Mark McMorris' pick for its twin freestyle playfulness and all-terrain prowess. Coming in 2 different shapes, the camber version offering a pure-pop and snappy feel yet still forgiving and the flying v version offering more precision and control over the board. Next up is the iconic Burton Custom Snowboard, available in both traditional camber and Flying V profiles. This board has attained legendary status and caters for the intermediate to expert rider. The Custom is the best all-round option for someone wanting to ride everything (on one board). Compared to the Process, the construction is a step up, offering a more lively ride, with twin flex and a directional shape, appropriate for any conditions. For a slightly more forgiving, floaty ride, choose the Flying V profile or choose the traditional camber profile for more pop and speed. If you love the Custom but are looking for a stiffer and more responsive ride, then the Burton Custom X Snowboard is the perfect board. With the same shape and profiles as the Custom, the Custom X has a lighter core with more carbon added for stiffness. All this creates a lightweight, lively board for the aggressive all-mountain expert riders.

Now onto the women’s side, with boards just as good in performance and looks. The women’s boards are equipped with a lighter fiberglass layup for a softer flex, to suit the all-mountain riding style for smaller riders. The Burton Yeasayer Snowboard comes in both a Flying V and Flat Top rocker profile. The intermediate rider will appreciate the more catch-free and forgiving ride these profiles offer, whilst the direction twin shape will be versatile all over the mountain. Choose the floaty Flying V or for a more beginner friendly ride, try the Rocker/Flat Top version. The Burton Feelgood Flying V Snowboard is the best all-around board in Burton's women's line-up for the intermediate to the expert female rider. Offering a slightly stiffer responsive ride than the Yeasayer and more premium materials and construction, this board will be ideal for someone looking to progress all over the mountain.

All Mountain / Freeride

The next few boards are part of the all-mountain range, although focus more on a free ride style. Modern technology has allowed for clever designs of these new boards, creating high performance over versatile intermediate and expert conditions.

First up is the Burton Skeleton Key Snowboard, a great value option for someone wanting an adaptive allrounder with a little extra float in powder (Japan, anyone?). The board has a medium flex, directional shape with Burton's directional camber - consisting of camber underfoot for stability/drive and rocker in the nose for lift in powder. Combined with a 10mm taper (i.e. the tail is narrower than the nose) which makes turning edge to edge quicker and allows for incredible float in powder with less work on the rear leg. The taper does not kick in until after the rocker upturn, meaning the board still rides really well switch on hard-packed snow, hence the All-Mountain status. The Burton Deep Thinker Snowboard is Danny Davis' go-to. It shares many of the Skeleton Key's characteristics but better in construction, materials, and a stiffer livelier ride. Utilising Burton's directional camber combined with a 7mm taper, this versatile board is equally at home in the park or making tight powder turns in the trees.

Freeride boards (powder boards) tend to have a directional shape and set-back stance designed to charge steeper mountains, heavier lines, and bottomless powder. These boards would be an excellent option for a trip overseas where you're expecting deep powder or steeper, less forcing lines. We have already mentioned the Skeleton Key, and Deep Thinker (see all mountain / free ride above) both these boards would make a great freeride board. A few other great options are below.

The Burton Cartographer Snowboard is a great value freeride board that combines stability and float for your next big mountain adventure, to relax and ride cool until you want to let it rip. A directional shape, 5mm of taper and a Triax Fibreglass layup is ideal for moving through mixed terrain. A stiff nose will handle chunder with ease, and the mid-flex will keep it fun riding in powder. The Burton Flight Attendant Snowboard is the ideal board for the intermediate to expert wanting to ride powder or compact snow. The geometry allows the board to feel like a twin when flat but charges big mountain lines with aggression, control, and float when you need it. The women’s Story Board is built for control, versatility and confidence. This profile is built upon a directional camber and taper with torsional flex that floats through many conditions.

 Parks are the snowy version of a skateboard park. Offering a recreational terrain that often includes jumps, rails and pipes, and obstacle not often found in typical mountain conditions. Freestyle boards (parks boards), (usually) have a true twin shape and more park friendly focus allowing for identical riding in both regular and switch stance. The flex and profile are typically tuned for riders wanting to hit jumps, slide rails and jib around the mountain. Freestyle boards can still be good performers all over the hill.

Burton's Blossom  is a unique hand painted graphic from team rider Niels Schack. A board to be free and creative on with a solid true twin platform to spin, stomp and ride as you wish. The Burton Free Thinker Snowboard is Danny Davis' true twin pick for intermediate to expert riders. Built for hot laps in the park, but also able to ride side hits across the mountain, a true twin shape allows for creative riding in any area. With a medium to stiff flex, this board incorporates better materials and construction than previous freestyle boards. In particular, the carbon highlights and camber create a lively ride that will turn really well outside the park.

With an extra poppy flex, the souped-up women's Burton Rewind Snowboard is for riders who charge hard and like to flaunt a freestyle attitude backed by steady park progression. The "Filet-O-Flex" design means the core has a thinner profile underfoot for great flex on rails but still allows for control where you need. Ramped-up grip and a fast yet low-maintenance sintered base offer control and durability in variable conditions, while the Off-Axis construction perfectly aligns the board's design to your body's stance and positioning for board feel that fits like a glove. The women’s Burton Talent Scout snowboard has a pro-driven attitude, with a camber profile, this board offers control and finesse to reach the best of park performance. Designed to fit like a glove, the Talent Scout's Off-Axis design aligns the Squeezebox core profiling and Frostbite Edges with the typical park rider's stance, unlocking the board's natural flex and edge hold for buttery smooth control.

Burton has made life easy for you by putting recommended rider weights in their size charts, be sure to check out the recommended rider weights for your favourite board on the TrojanWSS website. Whilst you're there, don't forget to see which binding sizes will suit your board, Burton also includes this in their board size charts. And finally, if your boot is on the larger size (greater than 11 US), you might need a specific wide board. Burton makes a selection of their boards in a wide version.
