Product Info

Sometimes you just need a little push in the right direction to get things going. In life we all have that one friend who acts as the catalyst for shenanigans when things start to flat-line, and in your snowboarding journey, the Burton Instigator Snowboard is that friend. With a super mellow flex profile and a Flat Top bend shape, the Instigator is all about easy turn initiation and forgiving ride characteristics. It lowers the entry requirements for having fun on a snowboard, doesn't punish inconsistent form, and is an excellent tool for riders looking to increase their skills.

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.

PersonalityPlayful

Shape

DirectionalThe 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.

5mm Taper

Core

Super Fly® 800G CoreLightened up and loaded with pop, this 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 your 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™ FiberglassGives the board a jib and park friendly feel by softening the torsional flex.

Base

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

Edges

Cruise Control TuneA catch-free edge tune that combines with rocker with increased bevel to help new riders progress, and good riders get even better.

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.

Infinite Ride™This Burton-exclusive technology allows 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 Flat Top, Flying V™, 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.

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).
