Product Info

The venerable Custom, now with the option of a Flying V™ rocker profile rather than the traditional full camber, the Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard combines a subtle pop with insane carving ability and do-it-all versatility. Burton throws every tech feature in its arsenal into this board, and it shows.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Flying V™A blend of Camber and Rocker, for the best of both worlds: rocker overall, including between and outside your feet, enhances playfulness and float. Underneath your feet, subtle camber zones focus edge-control for added pop and power through turns.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)5, A medium flex for easy turn initiation without giving up stability at speed

Infinite Ride™This Burton-exclusive technology allows for maximized pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop and feel from the first day forward, season after season.

Shape

Pro-Tip™A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

Sidecut

DirectionalThe classic, most versatile snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition

Core

Super Fly II™ CoreStronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight - further optimized for float in Burton's freeride focused boards, and strength in their park boards.

Dual Zone™ EGD™Engineered Grain Direction manipulates the angles and direction of wood grains in the core for superior edge-hold, response, and durability.

SqueezeboxThis improves performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from where it originates beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board more stable and easily manipulated.

Laminates

Triax™ FiberglassVersatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred

Carbon I-BeamThis ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.

Lightning BoltsRadiating outward from beneath your feet, these energy transfer strands allow us to make the board more responsive without making it stiff. The Hi-Voltage version features energy transfer strands woven into the fiberglass both above and below the board’s core for better power and response.

Sidewalls

10:45™ Sidewalls10:45’s extra-meaty, dual angle geometry results in better impact absorption and durability.

Base

Sintered WFOSuper fast base that retains wax well, 50% recycled content

Diecut Base ColorCombinations may vary

Edges

Frostbite EdgesEdges beneath your bindings extend out slightly for tremendous edgehold on hard, icy conditions. Powerful when you need them, playful when you don’t, Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining forgiving in softer conditions.

Topsheet

20-30% Recycled content

Graphics

Eliminated printing chemicals - uses more eco-friendly inks then traditional printing methods

Additional Features

Gondola PackageSetting the benchmark with boards that are lighter, faster, and stronger for more air, quicker turns, and more fun no matter what the terrain or conditions

Binding Compatibility

The ChannelGives you the ability to micro adjust your stance and is compatible with Burton EST™, Re:Flex™ and Disc bindings, as well as bindings from Forum, Drake, Union, Flow, Flux, Ride, and K2 with adapter

Comments about Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard 2013:

I love this board so far. I usually go over 15 times every season and so far this board has it all. Its flexibility is great & it pops! I use it with the Burton Malavita EST bindings and this combo is amazing. There's so much you can do. I highly recommend this board. Design is simple and lets everyone know what board you're riding.

    Comments about Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard 2013:

    This board performed beyond my expectations in 18" of fresh Utah pow.The flying V makes riding powder a dream compared to positive camber boards. Very stable at high speed on the steeps of Utah resorts. Stiff enough for stability but has flex in the nose and tail to butter and press.

      Comments about Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard 2013:

      IMHO, the Custom continues to be a solid line for many generations. The product keeps improving every year and that means that the board is more fun to ride than previous years. It handles heavy powder great and floats like a dream in fluffy CO / UT powder. It's also a fun fast board to bomb down groomers!

        I'm coming from a full reverse camber board (Burton Custom V-Rocker) and wanted to give this board a try.

        The board def held on icy conditions and on rough patches. Much better than the V-rocker! However, it was not as easy to turn as the v-rocker. Def will take some time to get used to but once I get used to it, I'm sure i'll like it better since its more stable.

          This is the best snowboard i have! This is way better than my sierra stunt. Carves great and doesn't get unstable when you go really fast. Took it to the woods a couple of days and it did have minor dings, but that cannot be avoided.

          By 

          from Stevens Pass

          Comments about Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard 2013:

          Flying V makes powder easy and holds a carve like it's on rails. I felt the overall stiffness left a bit to be desired but prefer big stiff sticks. Still a fun ride.

            This is my 5th board and my 2nd Custom on that list. Love it. Perfectly balanced all around playful but yet stable carving board. On the ice coast the protruding edges dont seem to do much but you can definitely feel the underfoot camber on turns and the V shape when the white stuff under your base gets soft.
            I ride it on the shorter end relative to my weight and have 0 complaints of speed, stability and floatation.
            I matched it to Cartels and something tells me I will have this setup for a long time.

              This was my fist board and I love it. The model is old, but is designed well and seems like it can stand the test of time.

              All and all, this was a fantastic deal. This board is perfect for my skill level and has allowed me to improve quickly. It's very forgiving.

              I don't do a lot of tricks or park riding, so I don't feel qualified to recommend to board for that. However, I would feel more than comfortable going anywhere with this thing.

                              First Board i've owned after renting, and i can definitely feel that the ride is a lot smoother easier. Icey conditions is not that optimal, but for all other uses its very good.

                                  My buddy was riding on a pretty old cheap beginners board. I got him this one as a wedding gift and he cannot stop talking about how much of an upgrade it is. His biggest comment to me was how much faster it is than his last board. super fast.

                                      This board is one of the best all mountain boards i have ever ridden. Great grip for when its icy and floats over powder like a dream. Even holds its own when in the park.

                                        Before this board, I've always had pain in my knees and muscle fatique from the rental borads. I was extremely happy not to feel any pain in my knees after riding on this board. This borad is forgiving, easy-to-ride, easy-to-turn and very stable. I only wished that I bought this earlier in the season so that I could have enjoyed this board more often before the season ended in southern california. I hope to grow with this borad and improve my skills in many seasons to come. Highly recommended.

                                          A great board. I got in some last minute riding before the season was over and all I can say is WOW the board has POP. I went off of a few jumps bombing the hill and I must've flew 10 yards long. This board was made to "Fly" Hence the name flying V. This is a great board and I recommend it to all.

                                          Great board. I was afraid when i bought it due to a few negative reviews about high speed riding and hardpack but most of this critics were not true. On icy conditions, this board does not ride at all. For all moutain, powder, hard snow, fresh snow, jumps, jibs, pipe...PERFECT
