Product Info

The venerable Custom, now with the option of a Flying V™ rocker profile rather than the traditional full camber, the Burton Custom Flying V Wide Snowboard combines a subtle pop with insane carving ability and do-it-all versatility. Burton throws every tech feature in its arsenal into this board, and it shows.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Flying V™A blend of Camber and Rocker, for the best of both worlds: rocker overall, including between and outside your feet, enhances playfulness and float. Underneath your feet, subtle camber zones focus edge-control for added pop and power through turns.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)5, 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.

Shape

Pro-Tip™A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

Sidecut

DirectionalThe 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

Super Fly® CoreLightened 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.

SqueezeboxThis 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.

Laminates

Triax™ FiberglassVersatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred

Carbon I-BeamThis ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.

Lightning BoltsRadiating outward from beneath your feet, these energy transfer strands allow us to make the board more responsive without making it stiff. The Hi-Voltage version features energy transfer strands woven into the fiberglass both above and below the board’s core for better power and response.

Sidewalls

10:45™ Sidewalls10:45’s extra-meaty, dual angle geometry results in better impact absorption and durability.

Base

Sintered WFOSuper fast base that retains wax well, 50% recycled content

Diecut Base ColorCombinations may vary

Edges

Frostbite EdgesEdges 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

20-30% Recycled content

Graphics

Eliminated printing chemicals - uses more eco-friendly inks then traditional printing methods

Additional Features

Gondola PackageSetting the benchmark with boards that are lighter, faster, and stronger for more air, quicker turns, and more fun no matter what the terrain or conditions

Binding Compatibility

The ChannelGives you the ability to micro adjust your stance and is compatible with Burton EST™, Re:Flex™ and Disc bindings, as well as bindings from Forum, Drake, Union, Flow, Flux, Ride, and K2 with adapter

    this is my first non standard non camber board, so i wasn't sure how i was going to like it... well i love it i feel it has help me become a better rider by being more for giving. So I now have more confidence to push harder. Burton makes a very nice product as well, there is a reason they are such a big player.

        Awesome board! It does it all from powder to back country, it can tackle all types of terrain. I've tried other boards and this is my favorite. It gives you total confidence and control and my riding has really improved with it. It's a great combination of rocker and camber with playfulness and float. Lots of pop.I LOVE THIS BOARD!

                  Comments about Burton Custom Flying V Wide Snowboard 2013:

                  Hands down one of the best all-mountain boards you can buy. Perfect for beginner/intermediate level riders, the rocker camber yields a board that's both playful and forgiving yet still responsive when you really want to dig in. Great for the pow and the icy conditions we can see here on the East Coast / Midwest.

                  That being said, if you are an advanced/expert rider who likes to go FAST (think double blacks in Denver fast) and ripping huge carves, this would NOT be my first choice. Go for the Custom X.

                  That being said, I absolutely love my Flying V and it will be the workhorse of my arsenal for a LONG time to come. Get this board now - you won't regret it.

                      Board is great. Never owned a board and could tell the difference after riding one day. The Burton binding system is really easy to install and allows for a very custom stance.

                        This is the more advanced, adult version of the Custom Small, for youth. I bought this board after seeing how well my 7 yr old could ride his 135 on the black diamonds. I am so impressed to see how easy I was able to get used to it, after having my old board (Kemper 155) for almost 12 years.

                        Flying V makes powder easy and holds a carve like it's on rails. I felt the overall stiffness left a bit to be desired but prefer big stiff sticks. Still a fun ride.
