Burton Vapor Snowboard 2013

Light as the mist swirling over that cornice and snappy as an alligator reaching for a BBQ chicken, the Burton Vapor Snowboard is the company's feather-weight pride and joy in the cambered division. Burton goes all out on this one, spec'ing Vaportech™ ultra-light construction, an Ultrafly core, and a Carbon Vaporskin™ topsheet exclusive to the Vapor boards.
Rocker Type
Camber - When talking about powerful turns and poppy precision, camber speaks to the core values of board design. Offering snappy energy for turn initiation and tricks, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board allowing for smooth, continuous control from tip to tail.
 
Flex
Flex Rating: 6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Stiffer flex for power and control but forgiving enough for landing those not-quite-completed tricks
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
Directional - The 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
Ultrafly Core - Ultrafly’s prevision-milling revolutionizes the strength-to-weight and performance achievable with a wood core construction. Burton's lightest core.
Multizone EGD™ - Perpendicular wood grain orientation in four zones adjacent to The Channel for increased strength and riding precision
Carbon I-Beam - This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.
Sidewalls
Slimrail - A streamlined, ultra-minimized sidewall design found on the Vapor™ and Fish™ shaves weight without sacrificing edge-hold, strength or rideabiliy.
Base
Sintered WFO - Super fast base that retains wax well, 50% recycled content
Edges
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.
Topsheet
Carbon Vaporskin™ - Higher amounts of carbon in this minimized topsheet membrane result in superior weight savings.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for snowboards, and still popular among high-level park and pipe riders because it offers maximum energy and pop. A cambered board has a smooth arch underfoot and touches near the tip and tail when unweighted; when the rider’s weight is added, it provides a long, evenly pressured running surface and edge.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
