Review

The Burton Parkitect is an all-mountain freestyle snowboard that’s built for intermediate to expert riders who want a very fun, easy to turn and stable board. The Burton team gave this snowboard a Traditional Full Camber construction that comes with an asymmetric core and edge profiling. This means that the board’s wood is softer and narrower underfoot, which gives you more flex and better board feel. Because the sections of the edge that extend out from the board’s sidecut will help to you to grip on hard-packed snow. It all adds up to a responsive and solid ride. That holds its edge at speed and allows you to have some buttery fun. This board also absorbs bumps nicely and springs really well. Great for your park jumps and mountain ollies. Overall the Burton Parkitect is an energetic and confident snowboard that will push you to the next freestyle level.
