If you're going to jump out of a plane for the first time, knowing where the ripcord is is a major key to survival. Entering into the snowboard scene is no different, so pick up the Burton Ripcord Snowboard and rip through the learning curve. With Burton s most intuitive Flat Top™ rocker profile and Easy Bevel edges to subtly lift the edges off the snow (less chance of catching an edge), the Burton Ripcord Snowboard is one of the most progression-friendly boards on the market.
Flat Top™ A flat profile overall with subtle rocker rise provides an extra stable platform underfoot with a catch-free feel at the tip and tail.
Soft & Playful At cruising speed, this snowboard is forgiving, playful, and great for progressing. Riders of all ability levels will appreciate the many easy-riding characteristics of a soft snowboard.
Directional Flex This flex features increased pop in the tail and a resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.
Directional Directional is the original snowboard shape. It is designed with a slightly longer nose, to concentrate the pop in the tail. This board will give you plenty of floatation, fluidity, and control to rip.
5 mm Taper A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation.
FSC™ Certified Fly® 900G Core Burton's classic tip-to-tail wood core. Without sacrificing the flex, pop or strength, the 900G utilizes two wood species to create an extremely lightweight board.
Squeezebox Low Burton's Squeezebox improves your boards performance by balancing thicker more powerful core sections in with thinner more flexible sections. Meaning you get enhanced board connectivity, response and predictability.
Biax™ Fiberglass Gives the board a jib and park friendly feel by softening the torsional flex.
Extruded Base An extruded base is full of speed, strength and amazing pop. These bases require little maintenance.
Easy Bevel Edge Tune Engineered for riders starting out. Burton's Easy Bevel Edge Tune makes for a catch-free and forgiving ride by rounding out the edges.
The Channel™ Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable - The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major binding companies (not just Burton’s).

Comments about Burton Ripcord Snowboard 2017:
This is a great board for a beginner like myself. There aren't too many options for someone who weighs a little more than the average snowboarder and so far I'm happy with my purchase.
