The Burton Root Snowboard is the little board that could. Using their exclusive Nug Raduction™ construction, Burton has built big-board float, stability and pop into a smaller package - they recommend sizing down 8-10 cm from your normal length with the Root. This new design features a Flat Top™ profile and 5 mm tail taper, Super Fly™ core and 10:45™ sidewalls.
Flat Top Rising rider or seasoned pro, keep your game on the level with the NEW Flat Top. A flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free and loose feeling you’d expect from rocker.
Flex Rating (1 Soft-10 Stiff) 4, A medium flex for easy turning and forgiving freestyle moves
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.
Nug Raduction™ Optimizes every element—from waist width and ﬂex proﬁle to sidecut and running length—letting you downsize up to 10cm from your normal board length. Light and lively, easy to throw around, surprisingly ﬂoaty, poppy, and stable at speed—Nug Raduction™ will change the way you look at board length.
Scoop This exaggerated tip and tail scooping turns up the edges for a looser, more forgiving feel.
Pro-Tip™ A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
Directional with Taper Designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop while allowing the tip to rise and tail to drop slightly in deep snow
Super Fly® Core Lightened up and loaded with pop, this vertical sandwich of hard and soft woods saves weight and improves snap and response.
Dual Zone™ EGD™ Engineered Grain Direction manipulates the angles and direction of wood grains in the core for superior edge-hold, response, and durability.
Squeezebox This 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.
Triax™ Fiberglass Versatile ﬂex and response for everything from mini to mega shred
Jumper Cables Hi-Voltage Ultra-light carbon stringers radiate energy outward from your feet towards the tip and tail. The result is greater pop and snap when powering through turns without sacriﬁcing the board’s overall playful feel. For maximum ﬂight, Jumper Cables Hi-Voltage use carbonated rods for ultra-electriﬁed pop and performance.
10:45™ Sidewalls 10:45’s extra-meaty, dual angle geometry results in better impact absorption and durability.
Sintered Fast and durable base that holds wax well, 20% recycled content
Diecut Base Color Combinations may vary
Frostbite Edges Edges 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.
Side Effects Lengthening the surface area at the tip and tail contact points improves edge-hold and allows the board to plane easier in powder. Enjoy a livelier feel and enhanced grip on groomers along with added float for overhead days.
