Product Info

The Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard is the step forward in a long history that is the Burton Custom. Equipped with Burton's Flying V™, Super Fly II™ Core and Sintered WFO Base, the Custom Flying V handles everything that the mountain has to offer in style. The combination of precise control and amazing float in powder makes the the Burton Flying V Snowboard a great choice for everyday shredding at your local hill.

Product Details

Rocker Type

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

Flex

Flex Rating: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Very Stiff)A medium flex for easy turn initiation and forgiving landings

Twin FlexHaving a twin flex indicates that your board is perfectly symmetrical in flexibility from tip to tail so you gain a more balanced and predictable ride.

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

TwinThe shape is perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that's equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it.

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

Core

Super Fly II™ CoreDesigned to target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight, this core is further optimized for float in Burton's freeride focused boards, and strength in park-focused 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

45° Carbon HighlightsCarbon Highlights optimize each layer of the fiberglass matrix and add a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce overall weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 60° fiber angle creates a highly maneuverable and playful feel, while a 45° fiber angle provides a more aggressive ride. In select Hi-Voltage models, the addition of carbon strands to the angled fiber layers adds life and further reduces weight.

Sidewalls

10:45 SidewallsAggressive rippers take note. 10:45’s extra-meaty, dual angle geometry results in bomber impact absorption.

Base

Sintered WFO BaseInfusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays wide open all season in any condition.

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.

Comments about Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard 2014:

This board is the beez kneez. I've had Burton Customs flying V's before and never really had a complaint about them. It's a great well rounded board I primarily do tree runs, backcountry, and fresh groomers with the board with a taste of ground tricks (butters and moonwalks). The board gives you plenty of pop thanks to those carbon fiber strands running throughout the board giving it a nice secure but, fun feel overall. I've gone around 65 mph on it and never felt it feel unstable unlike powder ski's. Backcountry in my opinion is pretty good for it being an all mountain suppose to dedicated pow boards this is simply do to its directional shape helps you tear up all that fresh pow. Great control to make to make those brown pants moments before you run into a tree or fail on a rail. I can't really comment it's performance on park since, I don't do a lot of park occasionally I'll do a rail or two and never had issues. One thing that bust my chaps on this board is it can get dinged up easily right around the top edge of the board. Other than that great board you won't be disappointed and gotta love the channel system. (154cm board)

    A true quiver killer. Take the Custom FV anywhere and it won't let you down.
    It was very smooth at high speed, really poppy when jumping and even lots of fun riding boxes and rails. On powder days the Flying V shape floats so good.

        I'll spare you the super long winded review that everyone else is writing.
        If you want one board that will conquer anything in it's path, buy a Custom. This board destroys my old TRS, my BSOD and my Slayblade. By the way....

        Great board. Very fast and stable. Does all the work for you :) fun ride, good for free ride and jumps. A bit too stiff for me but I'm getting used to it. Unfortunately top surface chips quite easily from small impact with other boards/skis in line. Otherwise, highly enjoyable !!

            This board is amazing!!!!! It's very lightweight, I use it to shred down any slope and fly off any jump! I also use this board to float right through POWY WOWY and get tricky in the park. When this thing is under you, it's an equivalent feeling to invincibility because you can do anything and everything with it!!! I have absolutely no complaints about this board10/10 for sure! Especially with the new cartel est binding as well which were also from the great Evo.com!

              This is an amazing board! If you are going to have only one board in your arsenal this is the board to get. Unless you ride in ice'y conditions a lot. Then get something else... Seriously this board is extremely bad on ice (I know every board is but this one just takes that badness to a whole new level).

              I do all sorts of stuff with this baby: fresh groomers, pow, backcountry, tree runs, ground tricks and jumps. It never let me down, quite the opposite it saved me quite a few times ;-) This board plus Japanese pow = the ultimate ride!

                I used to ride all the time until I joined the military over 15 years ago and wanted to get back into it and the board made it feel like I never stopped. Was great on groomers but even better in deep powder and some drops when I was in Utah.

                  Don't forget that this board is a wide, and while still riding smoothly through the transitions, rides like a wide with slightly longer transitions through the turns. If you need a wide - such as with a men's size 12 boot or greater - then this is perfect. I don't have a size 12 boot, but the Flying V rocker along with the wide outline created enough smooth, tail heavy transitions to give the board a more surf-like feel for me. And having grown up surfing first before ever strapping on a snowboard, getting that smooth flow on the mountain worked well for me.

                      Love this board. I am a New Englander, and the Flying V just tore up Killington last week. I am very excited to see how the rest of the season unfolds, because I am out of my mind amazed at how much fun this board is to ride.

                              This board is a no brainer. It's extremely user friendly and ensures a good ride in any conditions on any mountain. Plus it's Burton, so like I said, a no brainer. Burton stands by their products and their customers faithfully. Happy riding.

                                  I highly suggest.

                                    This is probably the best board I have ever owned. It does everything that you could possibly want: All-mountain, park, back country, literally anything. There's not really anything bad about.

                                    Fast delivery. Came in on-time, and the delivery man was cheerful.

                                          Great in the park.
                                          Great on groomers.
                                          Great everywhere.
                                          This is one board that can ride it all and not compromise anything! Twinish shape and flying v create a fun, go anywhere, do anything snowboard.
