Light as the mist swirling over that cornice and snappy as an alligator reaching for a BBQ chicken, the Burton Vapor Wide 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.
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 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.
Pro-Tip™ A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
Wide Select boards offer versions of their signature rides in wider platforms that are redesigned from the ground up for the larger-footed rider.
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
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.
Slimrail A streamlined, ultra-minimized sidewall design found on the Vapor™ and Fish™ shaves weight without sacriﬁcing edge-hold, strength or rideabiliy.
Sintered WFO Super fast base that retains wax well, 50% recycled content
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.
Carbon Vaporskin™ Higher amounts of carbon in this minimized topsheet membrane result in superior weight savings.
