Product Info

Maybe you've heard the news that snowboarding can be a couple days of falling before you get settled in with the whole sliding sideways down the mountain thing. The Burton Instigator Snowboard is designed to help mitigate the learning curve. A soft forgiving flex and a durable extruded base give you room to play without worrying about your board treating you unfairly. It's a fun, forgiving ride that you can take all over the mountain. Get things started with the Burton Instigator Snowboard and start thinking about which season pass you want!

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.

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

Shape

Directional | 5mm 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.

Pro-TipA tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

Core

FSC™ Certified Super Fly 800GLightened 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.

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.

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).
