The 2017 Burton Custom snowboard set an unprecedented standard upon its arrival and still remains one of the most popular and trustworthy all-mountain snowboards. With a 20 year long legacy it’s also the most mimicked board in snowboarding history. Often imitated, but never outdone. This snowboard features all of Burton’s best technologies wrapped into a classic design with Traditional Camber and a Directional Twin shape.
Other than a few adjustments not much has changed for this new season. On snow, this board feels stable and offers a nice ride to the more experienced snowboarders. It’s a great board for groomers and it holds an impressive edge that’s capable of launching you out of a turn. When on powder this board floats nicely. But you will need to put in some extra effort to avoid the nose from digging in. Although it’s not a power board like the Custom X, this one does handle high speeds quite well. Chatter does occur on harder surfaces. But the shock absorption proved to be really good in a variety of conditions.
The 2017 Burton Custom snowboard compliments well for those who already have the Barracuda in their quiver. If you want a great all mountain board built on a proven formula then this one could make you happy. Time-honored design and envelope-pushing ingredients combined in one package. A favorite board by many riders anywhere from intermediates to the professionals.
