Burton Instigator Snowboard 2018

The Burton Instigator Snowboard is both the Tyler Durden and Tyrion Lannister of snowboards (yes, that's a Fight Club and Game of Thrones reference)... At its core, the Instigator is a perfect tool for helping anyone new to the sport take off with confidence. An easy-going flat top rocker is smooth and catch-free from edge to edge, while the Squeezebox Low core profile ensures the Instigator responds to rider input with minimal effort. Get in the game and progress with confidence with the Burton Instigator Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

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 a rocker profile.

Flex

Twin FlexThe flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch.

Shape

Directional | 5 mm TaperThe classic 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.

Convex Nose for All-Terrain Stability

Core

FSC™ Certified Super Fly® 800G CoreLightened up and loaded with pop, Burton's dual-species wood core utilizes dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance.

Dualzone™ EGD™The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core for consistent edge-hold and added strength.

Squeezebox LowWith an overall easier feel, Squeezebox Low brings high-end core profiling technology to the progressing rider. Stiffer zones just outside you feet create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail, while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. The end result is more control with less effort from the rider.

Laminates

Biax™ FiberglassFeatures a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex for a forgiving, park-friendly feel.

Base

Extruded BaseSpeed, strength, and graphical pop in a base that requires little maintenance. Pass your friends without even waxing.

Edges

Catch-Free Mellow Edge Tune

Additional Features

Super Sap® EpoxyA resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board.

Cruise ControlBoosts confidence with the catch-free combo of a softer flex and mellower edge tune. On tapered boards like the Instigator and Feather™ the nose is fully convex for all‑terrain stability.

Binding Compatibility

The Channel™ Mounting SystemStronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable -- The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton's).

Binding

Burton Freestyle Snowboard Bindings 2019

For park riders and new sliders alike, the brand new Burton Freestyle Snowboard Bindings are just the pair to help take your riding from beginner to shredder. Their park-friendly flex encourages tweaking and is also incredibly forgiving for progressing riders. A single-component baseplate is responsive and smooth and connects to ReactStraps™ with Flex Sliders for a snug yet ultra-comfortable fit. For un-paralleled freestyle flex and smooth-riding comfort, the Burton Freestyle Snowboard Bindings are your ticket to ride.

Product Details

Flex

Medium FlexThe happy medium of binding flex. Medium flex models perform equally on all terrain. Great for progression - responsive, comfortable and forgiving.

Baseplate

Single-Component Lightweight, Bomb-Proof Polycarbonate Re:Flex™One material throughout the baseplate creates consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination.

Re:Flex™ Binding SystemOffers more flex, feel, and cushioning than traditional disc bindings, in a package that's universally compatible with all current mounting systems, including 4x4, 3D® (via Burton Rider Service), and the Channel®. The minimized, cored base-plate with Living Hinge™ disc reduces the weight and footprint of the binding, while also bending freely for a more natural flex.

Re:Flex™ FullBED Cushioning SystemOffers full underfoot cushioning that maximizes comfort while minimizing fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, the stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware.

Highback

Single Component ConstructionThe simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Using Burton's book of material secrets, they can manipulate the overall flex profile -- from buttery to responsive.

MicroFLAD™The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker you heel-edge turns. Crank them forward for icy hits in the pipe or back them off for jibbing. Tool-free and micro-adjustable for easy fine-tuning and maximum angle options.

Straps

Reactstrap™Minimized construction that houses a 3D® curved triple axis spine with an ultra-responsive wrap that conforms to any boot.

Flex SliderMakes strapping-in a breeze with a strategically stretched hinging zone that allows the heel strap to flex and fall fully open. Thanks to science of forced molecular alignment, the Flex Slider is also incredibly strong.

Convertible Capstrap™

Buckles

Smooth Glide™ BucklesLightweight aluminum and polycarbonate levers give you season after season of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power.
